Choosing the Perfect Dining Set for Alfresco Meals


Entertaining guests outdoors is a trend that is catching up fast. Eating meals outdoors, typically in a garden, on a patio, a terrace, or any outdoor space designed for dining is a popular way to enjoy good food, fresh air, and the beauty of nature while spending time with family and friends.

Outdoor Dining Furniture

To create a comfortable and inviting alfresco dining experience, you need to choose outdoor dining furniture, along with decor like tablecloths, candles, lighting, and potted plants. Your choice of outdoor dining furniture should be guided by considerations such as the space, material of the furniture, prevalent weather conditions, style and aesthetics, durability, weather resilience, storage, and of course, the budget.

Space, Size, and Shape

Choose the size of the table according to the available space. Ensure that there is enough room for chairs to be pulled out and for people to move about. The shape of the table plays a role – round tables tend to take up more space while square or rectangular tables are more space-saving.

Material Selection

Choose a material that can withstand extreme weather conditions. The material should be light enough to allow you to move the pieces around easily. The furniture should not fade easily under the sun or rust under humid or saline conditions. Popular choices include teak, cedar, aluminium, and synthetic rattan wicker. There are lightweight options in plastic as well. Each material has its advantages and maintenance requirements, so choose one that suits your climate and maintenance preferences.

Style and Aesthetics

A dining set that complements the style of your outdoor space can elevate the elegance of the space. Whether you prefer modern, traditional, or rustic style, there are numerous options available to match your taste. Small tweaks to the design and style can improve the aesthetics greatly.


Enhance your dining experience with comfortable chairs. Check out different styles of chairs, such as those with or without armrests and those with high or low back support, before making the choice. Cushioned seats can add extra comfort, but make sure they are designed for outdoor use and can be easily cleaned.


The outdoor furniture should ideally be something that does not call for heavy maintenance. Materials like wood may require regular sealing or staining, while others like aluminium are low on maintenance. Choose furniture that retains its looks with just dusting and wiping.


When you talk about outdoor furniture, durability is the foremost concern. The furniture should be able to withstand all kinds of extreme weather conditions. Look for dining sets with sturdy construction and rust-resistant frameworks to ensure that they do not require frequent repairs and maintenance.


The market today offers a wide variety of outdoor dining furniture in different price ranges. There are several good quality options with aesthetic value so, it is quite easy to find a set that meets your needs without overspending. 

Warranty and Quality

Reading product reviews before purchasing outdoor furniture is a good practice that provides valuable information about the product and its warranty. A good warranty ensures peace of mind regarding the quality of the furniture.
