Finding the Right Outdoor Dining Table

Undertaking the task of choosing an exterior dining table can seem like an overwhelming affair if you’re not sure where to begin. Homes are much more personalized today than in previous decades and the variety available to homeowners can seem endless. You will want to choose something that reflects your homes specific style while also considering size and use. If you have a small space but enjoy entertaining you would want to consider that detail when making your decision. However, once you begin your search you may find that there are many styles and designs you like and need help narrowing it down.

Let’s look at some of the ways to approach your search for an outdoor dining table.


Your outdoor dining table is going to act as the focal point of your exterior space so visually it will be important to make sure the table is proportionate, allowing the table to accentuate rather than overwhelm the space. A good rule of thumb is to make sure you have 3 ft. of clearance on all sides of your table to comfortably accommodate seating and movement. You can measure your space to determine the dimensions that you can apply to the size of your outdoor dining table. If you have a larger space go for a large long rectangular table like the Tradition Dining Table made completely from grade-a teak or something circular, if the spaces shape cannot support a rectilinear table, try the Holly Outdoor Concrete Dining Table. If you have a very small exterior, try a bistro style table like the Angus Outdoor Reclaimed Teak Bistro Table or the ultra contemporary Verbena Concrete Café Table.
