Outdoor dining is an enjoyable leisure activity enjoyed by many homeowners, whether for breakfast before work or dinner with the family. Finding an appropriate dining table is paramount to enjoying this activity, making a patio furniture dining set an effective solution to creating stylish yet functional seating arrangements.

A standard patio dining set typically comprises of a dining table and chairs. They can range in size from three- to nine-piece sets, providing different configurations to suit different spaces. Bistro sets with three pieces work well for those with small patios while five or seven piece sets are better suited to medium decks; larger families or hosts who host parties often may prefer nine piece patio furniture dining sets as they allow everyone to dine comfortably together.

As well as considering size when selecting a patio dining table, homeowners must also take into account its frequency of use. An outdoor table that will be in daily use for meals should be made of sturdy material to withstand the elements – wood, aluminum or wrought iron are good examples; for those prone to changing shape when exposed to rain and snow (such as teak) an application of protective coating should help preserve its surface from cracking or warping.

Other key considerations when purchasing outdoor tables for luxury patios include their height and the type of seating that will accompany it. Tables at higher heights tend to be better for formal entertaining while lower tables work best for informal or spontaneous gatherings.

Backyard bench seating is an attractive way to complete a patio dining set, offering versatility in both colors and styles to complement any backyard environment. They can come equipped with backless designs ideal for picnic-style eating, while others come equipped with more comfortable seatbacks to ensure optimal seating comfort. When combined with patio chairs, bench seating creates an unexpected and fun alternative to standard dining chairs.


Consideration should be given when purchasing a dining table set to the material used, which plays an integral part in both its aesthetics and durability. Different materials require different cleaning strategies – some materials may be easy to maintain while others need special cleaners in order to remain looking their best over time. Furthermore, certain materials may rust over time so look for tables treated with weather-proof finishes or coatings for greater protection from this possibility.

Most dining table sets include four to six chairs; however, you can purchase separate chair sets if your current outdoor table doesn’t include this number. Chairs come in various colors to fit with the style of your outdoor space: black patio dining tables provide a sleek and modern aesthetic while white outdoor table sets add brightness and freshness.

Many outdoor dining tables are constructed from metal. Aluminum, cast iron and steel tables offer exceptional durability as lightweight materials that resist rust. Furthermore, tables made with metal frames blend beautifully into any patio or poolside environment.

Material choice of chairs is another crucial aspect when selecting an outdoor dining set. Patio dining chairs come in an array of comfortable fabrics such as padded foam and durable vinyl; some even feature Sunbrella fabric seat cushions which offer maximum comfort while protecting from stains or environmental factors.

Consider your space requirements when choosing a dining set. For instance, a three-piece bistro set such as Surf City 3-Piece Patio Dining Set may be perfect for two people to dine and drink comfortably on a small back deck, without taking up too much room.
