Guidance for Buying Outdoor Dining Table

Outdoor dining table is different from indoor dining table. Outdoor is more complex, since the challenge is more in outdoor than indoor. Weather and dust are the main challenge when you place furniture outside.There are two things that can guide you to choose the best outdoor dining table, the first one its size and also the surface of your dining table and the second one is the materials.

Materials for Outdoor Furniture

First popular material for your outdoor furniture is stainless steel. This material is great for those who have modern style of house. The best benefit you will get is that stainless steel can last for a lifetime. The second we have is plastic. Plastic is not heavy and the color comes in many choices. Just the same like stainless steel, plastic is also great for modern house. Yet, the durability is low, it only can last for around a year. Powder coating steel is another material you can choose. It is steel that is coated by powder. They heat the powder so that it becomes hard and cure. The color will be more durable than other materials. It come in various bright color you can choose. You do not need to repaint it in years. This material is designed for outdoor used, it can stand extreme weather and temperature. Rust and fade are something that this material does not have. Great choice for having a resistant outdoor dining table. If you choose wood as your furniture material, then for outdoor furniture try to use ipe wood. It is mold, pest, and weather resistant wood that you can have today. Naturally, it has smooth surface. Reclaimed wood is also great choice, but you need to finish it with oil so that it can last longer.

Guidance to Have

Besides deciding the materials, another thing to consider is the size of the furniture. If you have only small patio, then you can have a small table with four seats, bistro style sets can be great choice. Yet, if you want to dine outdoor, then, choose a complete dining set which have four to eight seats. Of course, it depends on the size of patio or deck you have. Last thing to consider is the surface of the materials. Make sure that you have a good surface that is easy to clean and treat, since dirt and dust are the main enemies of outdoor dining table.
