Factors To Consider When Choosing The Teak Dining Sets

It’s a pleasant experience to get together with family and friends on a fine sunny day and enjoy snacks or lunch outside in your backyard or patio. I always prefer to have home made healthy food in natural settings, and nothing comes close to creating such an environment than at my own backyard with trees, flowers and wooden furniture that is comfortable, relaxing and gives natural feeling.
Patio dining sets are there to serve the purpose of natural habitat restaurant and coffee house. It’s a great choice for family meals, romantic dinners, and the gathering of friends all with the fresh air and beautiful garden.

You can feel the experience of outdoor dinner by choosing teak patio dining set for your garden or terrace. There is wide choice of patio sets available in the market with different materials and styles.

When choosing dining set to buy, one should consider several things. Whether you opt to buy a bistro table, large rectangular table, or just a round table, you need to ensure that selected dining set coordinates with your backyard or patio and also with the style of house you have. Most large outdoor teak tables have a built in whole for umbrella. When you purchase an extension table make sure you prefer to have double extension outdoor table rather than single extension table.

With single extension table, you will have to take off the umbrella to extend the table as the umbrella hole is built in the extension of the table. With double extension tables this umbrella hole is in a separate wood which is placed in the middle of the table with one extension on either side. In this case you do not need to move umbrella which opening or closing the extensions. Umbrellas a wonderful addition to any outdoor dining set as some of us want to have little shade and some of us don’t. In such cases it becomes very handy accessory.

You can choose the dining set made from metal, which has advantage of no maintenance, but had disadvantage of being too hot when left in sun, being corroded with time, and gives very ordinary look.
My personal choice is outdoor dining set built of high grade teak wood. Teak wood is hard wood rich in teak oil. This helps it resist cracking, wrapping and has extremely long life.

As final thoughts, there are three basic things you should keep in mind before heading to purchase outdoor dining set. The size of the dining set coordinates well with your patio or deck, over crowded patio is not very charming at the same time a small patio dining set on large backyard does not give flexibility to accommodate larger party. Second thought is about the weather condition where you live in- if you are not sure about it just go for teak furniture as this wood will fit any kind of weather dry or humid.
