Who doesn’t enjoy a classic picnic? Picnic tables are a must-have for today’s backyards. After all, you probably don’t want to spread out a blanket and spend the picnic fighting off insects. Even if you’re not the “sentimental picnic basket type” of person, picnic tables definitely come in handy during cook-outs and get-togethers with friends and family.
However, there are different types of picnic tables available, depending upon your individual needs. Sure, you can still go with the classic wood picnic table, but if you want to truly make an impression at your next backyard gala, then you may want to shop around and explore your options prior to selecting your new picnic table.
There are a few factors that you want to take into consideration before you purchase your new picnic table. Here are some practical things that you should take a look at before you buy:
First of all, you will need to consider your budget. Sure, you may be thinking about that worn out picnic table at your local playground and saying to yourself that there is no way that a picnic table could cost that much. While there are affordable options, the cost relies upon the design of the picnic table and the material that it is made of. Take a realistic look at your budget and decide how much you are willing to spend.
Next, you will need to consider the size. You will need to consider the size of the picnic table, the size of your yard, and the number of guests that usually come over. While there are large picnic tables, you can alternatively select a smaller, round picnic table or an octagon picnic table. If your events usually include children, you can even choose to go with a short picnic table.
Finally, you need to consider the design. What will you use your picnic table for? Kids birthdays? Backyard bar-be-ques? Martini parties? There are many types of picnic tables that are suited for different budgets and purposes. For instance, garden picnic tables are available in decorative designs as they are mainly used for show. If you invite high-end clientele to your outdoor galas, you may want a more sophisticated design, such as a wine picnic table.
The design and style of your new picnic table are the features that will enhance the appearance of your backyard. While a standard wood picnic table may work well for families and give your yard a rustic allure, an aluminum or metal picnic table will provide a modern, industrial vibe.
Of course, you will also need to consider the features of a prospective picnic table. One feature that you’ll want to consider is the material that the table is made of. Sure, the material matters with regards to appearance, but it also influences durability and price. For instance, if you are seeking an affordable, environmentally friendly option, you may want to check out a recycled plastic picnic table.
Another feature that you may need to consider is portability. Although this may not make a difference to you if your picnic table is to remain stationary in your backyard, if you are in the market for a beach picnic table to take along on vacations, then you would need to find a portable model. Alternatively, a folding picnic table is an excellent option for people who are on the go.
There are several types of picnic tables that you can choose from, depending on your desired style and size. Let’s take a look at a few of the more popular types of picnic table:
While you definitely have plenty of options to choose from, it is best to select a picnic table that will serve its purpose and fit perfectly into your yard. Additionally, if you absolutely love the design of your new picnic table, the more use you’ll get out of it.
Choosing Picnic Tables: Despite the many options, it isn’t too difficult to choose the right picnic table. Simply find a size and style that you like, and a model that fits into your budget. You may also want to consider the height of the table. Short picnic tables are ideal for children, but adults need a standard table in order to be comfortably seated. Once again, you will need to carefully consider the purpose of the table, and whether or not portability is a concern.
