Dining outside is a favourite warm-weather activity, from romantic dinners for two under the stars to full meals served family-style when the whole gang gathers around the grill. When selecting the best dining furniture for your particular space, consider the size of your outdoor dining area and the type of meals you normally serve to help narrow down your options.
Most common patio sets seat from two to eight people and come with both a dining table and chairs, making them an ideal backdrop for traditional meals. Conversation sets are a multipurpose option for outdoor dining that offers two chairs and a loveseat or sofa with a coffee table or fire pit table for holding drinks and finger foods. If you have limited space outside, go for a small, two-person dining setup featuring a bistro table and stools.
Shop Walmart Canada to find outdoor dining options made from an array of quality materials. Which you choose should be based on your design and style preferences and how much upkeep and maintenance you want to put into your furniture.
Aluminum sets or sets with aluminum frames tend to be super sturdy and durable, making them a good choice for the long haul. Aluminum resists moisture and corrosion and is relatively light, which makes a difference when it comes time to move or store your furniture.
Wrought iron sets have timeless appeal that's hard to resist, and since it's a material that's weighty by nature, there's little chance of wrought iron furniture blowing over in a storm. Powder-coated wrought iron dining furniture for outdoor spaces provides another layer of protection from rust and corrosion due to moisture.
Outdoor furniture made from wicker is a great option for covered porches, but you can get the same look for a deck or patio in resin or faux wicker. These synthetic options are typically made from nylon or PVC that can stand up to the elements.
Wooden outdoor dining sets made from fir, cedar or pine or from harder species such as teak or shorea wood offer natural beauty to your outdoor dining area while also being resilient and sturdy. Acacia wood is a popular material for outdoor tables and chairs because it offers natural resistance to the elements. Teak is a top choice that's impeccably durable and can last for decades outdoors with proper sealing and care.
When it comes to furniture for outdoors, it's hard to beat the performance of plastic. Plastic resists rotting, moisture, UV fading and cracking. Many of today's popular outdoor furniture styles are made with plastic in a way that mimics wood, so you get the look of wooden furniture without the pitfalls sometimes associated with it.
Go for a coordinated look outdoors by choosing an outdoor dining set and other patio furniture and accessories from the same collection on Walmart.ca. Be sure to provide ample shade for guests with a patio umbrella or sun shade, and shore up your purchase with a matching outdoor sectional, pair of chaise lounges or set of Adirondack chairs to give your outdoor area a well-planned and put-together look.
