Types of Outdoor Dining Tables

Do you enjoy dining al fresco? If one of the most popular ways you use your outdoor space is for eating, then you know the importance of choosing the right dining set. There are plenty of options available from today’s outdoor furniture market and this can make it a bit confusing when you are shopping. That’s why we put together this article on the various types of outdoor dining tables so you can make the best decision for your luxury backyard or patio.

Best Outdoor Table Material

Let’s start with a basic choice: the best outdoor table material.

This small round dining table is made from sustainable teak wood.

Wood is a perennial favorite, especially sustainable teak. However, wood outdoor dining tables require annual maintenance to keep them looking good, such as light standing and re-staining. If you have an 84 x 42 dining table, that can amount to quite a bit of elbow grease.

For a smaller deck, an HDPE table and chairs provides a nice dining area.

HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) is another popular choice and it’s eco-friendly. This is a very strong and durable thermoplastic that holds up well to nearly any type of weather condition. It can be fashioned to mimic wicker or wood. It is easy to maintain and keep clean.

Lastly, always considered a best outdoor table material is aluminum. These types of outdoor dining tables are lightweight, do not require much in the way of maintenance, and can withstand lots of adverse weather conditions. Powder coated aluminum dining tables can be refinished when they start showing signs of wear.

Outdoor Fireplace Tables

When it comes to types of outdoor dining tables, today many consumers go with a patio fire table. This functions in dual ways in that it provides a toasty firepit in the middle for warmth and ambience but also provides plenty of room for diners, depending on the size. A round firetable is the best for chatting with friends and family but if you want to accommodate more people, you may wish to choose a 48 x 120 dining table to comfortably seat eight or more. In terms of brands, a Telescope fire table or Tommy Bahama fire table are known to be great quality with outstanding design.

This one features a very handy lazy Susan platter located in the center of the tabletop, so these are usually found in a 54 round patio table. A lazy Susan outdoor patio table is an ideal choice for homeowners who enjoy entertaining because it makes it easy to share dishes and condiments with each diner.

Shapes and Sizes

An 84 rectangular dining table is a common choice in types of outdoor dining tables. Laguna tables, such as the one pictured above, is a perennial bestseller. But there are plenty more options in terms of shape and size. Depending on your outdoor dining space, it may make more sense to opt for a 42 oval dining table or even a hexagonal patio table.

This is just a sampling of the various types of outdoor dining tables you will find on the market today. Keep in mind the specific features of your luxury outdoor living space when choosing the model that will work perfectly for you and your family.
