desire among people to reconnect with nature and spend time outdoors.  Because of this situation, the allure of outdoor activities has never been stronger.

As an outdoor space where people always spend some memorable hours with their friends and family, the purchase of a suitable outdoor dining set will be perfect for it. However, choosing the right set of dining tables and chairs for your relaxing outdoor space is not an easy task, since there are lots of factors that you need to consider.

Some Space Factors That Will Affect Your Decision

If you are considering getting a set of dining set for your garden or planning to enhance the outdoor atmosphere for a project of the hotel/ restaurant/ resort layout design, here are some useful tips that can help with you.

1.      Consideration of the Space Size and Styles

The first important thing needed to be think about is the size of your outdoor space. This factor is crucial since it decides that how big of the dining table you should shop for. If you measure the space size in advance, it can largely make your purchasing process more convenient by opting out the dining tables with unsuitable sizes. Image that when you place an oversized dining set in your patio or garden, it might look crowded and not comfortable. What is more, when you find it not suitable for your outdoor places after the installation; you have to disassemble the product and remove it again, which is tiring. However, by contrast, if the outdoor space is open and big such as a hotel lounge area or an outdoor restaurant, you might need to consider purchasing something else to increase the ambiance. It is also important for you to choose the dining sets based on your space style and colour, so that they can be matched together.

2.      Distance Between the Dining Set and Your Kitchen

As commonly understood, the dining table serves as a delightful gathering spot where people come together to enjoy delicious meals. Thus, careful consideration should be given to its placement within the outdoor space. For example, positioning the table in proximity to the kitchen makes you easier to pass the dished, ensuring convenience during mealtime. Conversely, if the dining set is situated too far from the kitchen, it may pose challenges when passing heavier dishes.

Consideration of Patio Space

Capacity of the Dining Table

Except the space consideration that we mentioned above, there is one more factor that you need to think about, which is the capacity of the outdoor dining table. Normally for those people who are buying a set of outdoor dining set for their garden, they will choose the table size based on the number of people in their family. However, if you want to place a large table in a small place, you can choose to purchase a foldable dining table which can adjust the length and size based on your needs. Your garden would be one of the most treasure places at home where laughs and fun is gathered, therefore, it is important for you to choose a right set of dining table to light up the atmosphere.

What is more, if you are the kind of people who are really into staying outside and embracing the nature with your friends or family, you can choose the dining set with larger capacity so that you can enjoy a comfortable and worriless outdoor moment. For those designers who are doing outdoor layout projects for hotels or outdoor restaurants, they need to consider various kinds of dining tables with different capacities to tailor customers’ needs.
