The coffee table is always a favorite of guests when entertaining. It can also be an essential part of your outdoor patio setup. There are many things to consider when choosing one from style to durability and we want you to take some time and think about every factor. When you are done you will probably have a great idea of what you actually want.
When picking materials you have the same huge amount of variety that you would find in any other piece of furniture. Glass, wood and steel are all very popular types. Weaves are extremely popular outside including combinations of glass and woven materials. In fact the large amount of variety may leave you a bit confused. However you want to go with a piece that is highly resilient as this will, after all, be outside. Even if it is under an overhang you never know when extreme conditions might suddenly take it out.
By far the most popular choice this season is all-weather wicker for your outdoor coffee table. There are many products like these that are made to, what else, withstand any weather. You might have to wash it down with some mild soap but it will probably last a very long time for you and be a very good choice all around. This is a vital piece of outside restaurant furniture if you serve coffee.
One style that you simply cannot go wrong with is the storage style of the outdoor patio coffee table. You can store items in them and they often have a removable top. These often either come off entirely or slide on a hinge. They make a great place to store everything from gardening utensils to party decorations. Guests also really enjoy these because they fun to open and look inside. During parties you may even use them to store favors. Just make sure that you don’t have anything you need for the party in there when the drinks are put down.
Another unique style is impressions for your tableware. Many of them have built-in drawers or even cup holders that allow you to easily slot everything in. This can be a real boon and is a major advantage over the other ones. Why? Because most outdoor coffee tables have a flat surface. Some of them even have a mild slope that can make it rather annoying for parties. No one wants to put their drink down on a surface and just have it slide right off.
For those who really have the money you may want to go with an outdoor patio coffee table that has a coffee maker with it. While such items are extreme luxuries and you will have to keep them very well maintained and safe it may be right for the person among you who wants something truly amazing and extravagant.
As long as you go with one that is resilient then you should be fine. Make sure it matches the rest of your patio which shouldn’t be hard. Now deciding on a setting that is the really hard part.
