Gardens, backyards and patios are fast becoming essential and functional spaces in today’s modern homes. No wonder garden picnic tables and other furnishings and outdoor accessories are fast gaining traction in home trends as the demand for them continuously rises.
While the use of a garden table is pretty much obvious – why you need something to fill that space with, and while you’re there put something functional – it goes beyond functionality. It is for aesthetic purposes too! Modern, fun and funky table designs make the familiar table more like a fashion statement.
You may be one of the homeowners looking to buy a picnic table and other accessories to liven up your garden or patio. However, certain considerations have to be carefully considered when choosing the right garden table. So what exactly are the things to keep in mind when hunting for the right garden table?
First off, think about the size and layout of your garden. Decide if you want to have a particular “theme”, or another good idea is to follow your personal taste. The color, style and design of your future garden picnic table should fit the size and layout of your garden or patio.
Next is, consider what type of material the table should be made of. Do you have very active kids that can be quite boisterous and unruly during play days? If yes, then choose a material that is durable and sturdy strong.
Lastly, consider what the garden will be frequently used for and what is the ambience you decide to make of it? Is it supposed to be a laid back, simple family space with a picnic table for cooking, playing cards, writing, reading or browsing, or just hanging out for chats with friends? Or do you have a more elegant, classic concept? Garden tables made of different materials such as wood, plastic, cast iron, steel or aluminum can greatly affect the ambience and display the kind of theme you want because they tend to grab the spotlight in that space in your home.
Wood garden picnic tables seem to be the most attractive for many homeowners. And rightly so because of its natural feel. We spend time chilling out or doing activities in our backyard gardens or patios with the intent of being close to nature. Tables made of wood are not only very classy, they are also very durable, hard, and can last for many, many years depending on the kind of wood used. However, they are prone to appearing weathered as years pass by but even this has a solution. Aluminum tables, on the other hand, require very little care, can be left outdoors all the time and are very affordable price-wise. Plastic picnic tables are also cheap, durable and weather resistant to a point.
