San Diego residents are some of the luckiest in the country. We can easily enjoy al fresco dining nearly all year round due to temperate weather and lack of ice and snow. So why not plan now to upgrade your outdoor dining area so you can start using it right away? Here are a handful of ideas to transform your backyard into a great place for entertaining with a new outdoor dining set.
Fire Pit Table
One of the most unique and useful outdoor dining sets is one that includes a propane fire table. A fire table can be configured in many different ways. Pick from one that is counter height or a regular dining room table height. It can be round, square, rectangular or octagonal. The fire pit itself is available as an outdoor grill, where you can cook delicious meals tableside, or it can simply function as a decorative source of warmth, especially with a Plexiglass guard. Make it even more of a statement piece by using beautiful pieces of fire glass or rocks as the medium.
One of the hottest trends this year is to add a small bistro set to your patio. While it may not be a good size for entertaining, it is the perfect way for you and your significant to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning or a cocktail at night. This type of intimate outdoor dining set can easily tuck into a corner of your patio or grace a corner poolside. You could also place a cute bistro set on your front porch since it requires only a bit of space.
Mix and Match
Many homeowners are married to the idea of a matching outdoor dining set. But why not take your table and chairs to the next level by mixing and matching? Start with the table of your choice, selecting a size and shape that fit nicely in your outdoor living room. Then choose chairs that complement the style of the table and feel free to browse through the options offered by other manufacturers. You can also mix and match the chairs, using a pair of side chairs and perhaps a couple rockers or sling chairs. The process is a bit easier if you visit our showroom so you can see how the pieces all look together in person.
Make it Super Comfortable
Who says an outdoor dining set must consist of straight-backed chairs and traditional tables? Rockers, recliners, benches, settees and sectionals can all easily stand in for conventional dining chairs. Just be sure that they are the right height to slide beneath your dining table. You will also want to be sure that the upholstery is treated to prevent stains.
Colorful Outdoor Dining Set
There’s no reason you can’t use your outdoor dining set to add a splash of bright color in the backyard. Pick chairs with frames in hues of red, blue or green and further embellish them with brightly patterned cushions. The dining table can be ordered to match the chair frames or go bold by using a contrasting color.
