Summer time is family time – time for grilling, relaxing outdoors, and having garden parties with friends. In order to enjoy the warm weather, it is worthwhile to arrange a seating area in the garden. We give an overview of the options for outdoor dining furniture and give you useful tips for choosing the location.
Outdoor dining furniture – how to choose the right location
Before you arrange the outdoor dining furniture, you must select the correct location. It is handy when the outdoor dining area is near the house – so save yourself the long way to the garden table with heavy plates, cups, etc. Think carefully about what accessories you will need – for example you have a barbecue, or you are planning to buy one? If you have a grill with coals or an open fire pit, you should be aware of the sparking hazard. Wooden furniture is highly flammable and therefore it should be placed at a distance of at least 1.5 meters from the fire.
Outdoor dining furniture and the special area in the garden
Think about the number of people who will use the outdoor dining furniture. Do you often have guests? How many people? The answer to these questions will help you to calculate the necessary seats. Do not forget to calculate a distance of at least 15cm between the chairs – so you can determine the table length. Select a location in the vicinity of the house, which is partially shaded. The dining area should not be arranged under a tree – branches may fall and hurt people. Consider options for sun protection and privacy screen. High perennials in plant pots can shield the diners from the neighbors, and a parasol can protect the furniture from the harsh sunrays. Select an appropriate lighting in advance. Do you have garden lights that you can use? Or you can buy a couple of LED lanterns for romantic mood?
