Three tips when buying a garden table

If you have a limited outdoor space, such as a balcony or small patio, it is wise to measure carefully so that you can fit both tables and chairs without having to pull your stomach in. Buying a table with pull-out extension leaves where there is insufficient room will only make the table more cumbersome and harder to sit at from all angles – so always invest in a table that is actually suited to your location.

The shape of the table naturally has different advantages. If you have plenty of space, you can simply choose according to what you like best, but if your space is more limited, there are a few things to consider:

  • Round tables provide a more intimate dining experience as everyone sitting at the table can see everyone else. The disadvantage is that they usually need to be a little larger than rectangular tables to accommodate the same number of people. On a smaller patio, a round table can be easier to walk around when not in use, which saves space, but can be perceived as more awkward, as you can't place it flush against a wall. Think about the best way to utilise your outdoor space and how many people you want to seat.

  • Rectangular tables are space-saving in terms of the number of seats, and can easily be placed against a wall. If you choose one with extendable leaves, you can easily vary the number of seats – if you have the room.

If you want to choose furniture that lasts, you need to be realistic about the material.

  • If you choose furniture in untreated wood, you must be prepared to take care of it and oil it every season, preferably more than once.
  • Painted wood can be touched up from time to time.
  • Plastics and materials such as synthetic rattan are relatively maintenance-free, but fade and age in strong sunlight, regardless of what the manufacturer claims.
  • Metal and glass are barely affected by sunlight, but they can feel cold and a little inhospitable on days when it's not overly warm out.
