Even if you don't go full out and design an outdoor room at your home, you can still make a comfortable outdoor space on your patio. Arrange the outdoor chairs you already have for comfortable conversation, and place small accent patio tables between every other chair. Everyone will have a place to put a tall glass of iced tea and a cell phone while you watch the kids run through the sprinkler and enjoy the yard.
It is very important to realize that not all types of materials will last forever. Also different materials may require different levels of care. For example, wicker furniture should generally never be left out in the elements unless it is treated or painted with a moisture resistant material. Metal may be alright to leave out in the rain if it is of a kind that will not rust. Redwood furniture is very durable, even in the rain, but some other types of wood may not last as long if they are left out. Just be sure to read the care instructions that are typically included with the tables. You can also ask an expert at the retailer where you purchased the furniture.
No, patio tables can be far more important than a glorified drink holder. Think of the traditional family dining table. The values of this furnishing have been passed on generation by generation. The image of the whole family sitting together over a meal holds great memories for many. Conversations with loved ones are cherished and there has been many a great story that originated from around the dining table. That is why the outdoor version has been so popular through the years. It allows us to bring those same characteristics to an outdoor meal. It even changes the way we refer to eating outside. Without one, it's called a picnic; however, with it, there can be no doubt that it is a meal.
Now that you have the basics you can really have some fun with decorating the table. Make it tropical with some palm fronds in vases at either end and monkey pod plates. Or go with a casually elegant French look with settings of Aptware crockery on top of unironed white linen. Try a simple look with sprigs if ivy for centerpieces and crisp white plates. The possibilities are truly endless.
In an age where the time we spend with family and friends is reducing by the week due to external pressures such as work, anything that can provide us with the platform to sit down and spend quality time with our nearest and dearest is considered valuable. Long gone for many are the days where you would have the time to sit down to a meal, and then go out into the garden and play catch with kids. The summers spent with your children in the garden could provide moments that you would cherish for all your days. However, in a society where every second counts, unfortunately we cut time from things that matter the most. That's why being able to watch them enjoy the weather, whilst enjoying your meal at the same time is so important, and hence why patio tables are no longer considered a luxury, but a necessity.
