Small Outdoor Dining Sets: The Perfect Addition to Your Patio

Your local weather conditions will have a huge impact on the best   selection of bistro sets.  Not only can   the weather determine how and when you use your patio set, but it can also   affect the life of your chairs and tables.

Generally, you won’t sit outside on the patio enjoying tea in the   pouring rain, but it’s also unlikely that you will have time to pack your kit   before each shower.  The same goes for   very warm weather.  You might think   that the midday sun is the perfect setting for coffee or a glass of cold   whiskey.  But what if the metal on your   chair is scorching hot?

If you don’t have a good idea of ??your local weather conditions,   it’s probably a good idea to do a little research before buying a bistro   set.  With this knowledge, you can   decide what type of material is best for your bistro set.


Wooden bistro sets offer many options for stylish additions to   your terrace or garden.  Natural wood   grain goes well with plant features, tiles, carpets, hardwood floors, and   even modern home designs.  In contrast   to bistro sets made of metal, wooden sets are very rarely unusable due to   extreme temperatures. Wood is inherently a poor conductor of   heat, so using your device on a warm day will not be a   problem.

Wooden bistro sets, on the other hand, can provide the need   additional maintenance over time.  Treatments that allow wood to withstand the   outdoor weather can wear out and need to be repeated.  If you aren’t diligent enough, your tables   and chairs can become worn or sculpted, which can lead to breaks and possible   falls.


If you are looking for the best of all worlds when it comes to   maintenance, Comfort and accessibility, Wicker   bistro sets are probably best.  Because   of its porous nature, wicker does not hold water well, so you don’t have to   worry too much about wiping it off after each shower.

Given that willow is vegetable (usually bamboo, reed, or willow)   this is the case very temperature resistant and   doesn’t get very hot even at noon.    Wicker lets the breeze caress all parts of the body equally and bends   evenly, simulating the comfort you would get from pillows without feeling too   hot.

Unfortunately, the wickerwork on chairs doesn’t last the   longest.  The material is based on   plants and is usually combined with a wooden frame.  So over time, you can expect wicker to fray   or break along the edges of the frame.


It can be argued that there are metal bistro sets the   best longevity all other bistro materials.  This is especially the case if your metal   bistro set is treated with weatherproof paint or powder-coated   steel.

Powder-coated steel offers an amazing amount of   versatility when it comes to design.  It is created by melting powder paint onto   steel, creating a protective layer against rust, scratches and stains.

As wonderful as the shelf life of your bistro set is, metal itself   is usually not that convenient.  On hot   days, metal chairs can be too hot unless they’re in a shaded area or have   poufs.
