If you are one of the people blessed with having even the smallest space to call “outdoors” around your home, then you surely want to put that space to good use. Investing in good outdoor furniture is an opportunity to create your own little dream corner where you can enjoy a breath of fresh air in a reality where that very fresh air exposure is now luxury.
Today, we wanted to guide you through the fascinating world of outdoor bistro sets because they can help inspire vacation corners without you having to leave the comfort of your own home.
What to Look for in Outdoor Bistro Furniture
Outdoor bistro furniture can be a sight for sore eyes, but there are some things that you should know before you actually purchase a set. Without further ado, here are some tips and important bits of information that you might find very useful:
- Outdoor bistro furniture mostly means tables and chairs, and both of them are really important. However, most people focus on the seating part of the set and less on the table, which is actually super important. Bistro tables should have about 18 to 26 inches in height and a tabletop of 24 to 36 inches in diameter if you want to enjoy the full bistro-like experience.
- Next, you have to consider the potential materials that are used to make the outdoor furniture set. Plenty of options out there are made from wrought iron (some of you might have seen these in your grandparents’ backyards). While pretty sturdy, these are also prone to rust if you don’t carefully maintain them. For the most part, outdoor bistro furniture that’s made from metal is actually a really good choice, provided that you pick ones that have been treated and can resist rust, corrosion, and water. Another common choice is the wicker outdoor furniture. This type of furniture is available in more neutral colors. Wooden outdoor bistro sets are also a good choice, but you will need to keep them away from the pool area or choose items that are water-resistant.
- One of the major disadvantages of buying bistro sets is the fact that they are most uncomfortable. Since they are focused on durability above everything else (as most outdoor furniture is and should be), comfort is not always a priority in the eyes of the manufacturer, which means that you’ll have to think of ways to ensure that comfort yourself. You will most likely have to invest in a set of outdoor chair cushions. They are usually made with weather-resistant fabric, but you can also take them inside when you’re not using them.
- Also, consider buying tables that have an umbrella hole in the center. This means that you can easily enjoy sunny weather on your gorgeous outdoor bistro furniture set without having to worry about basking under harmful UV rays.
