Buying guide for a patio table
When buying a terrace table you must take into account the use you are going to give it, its size and some other aspects that you should not forget so that it lasts a long time. But what are the most important factors? We comment on them.
Size and shape
The first of these is size and shape. Depending on what you want it for, you can choose one size or another.
For example, if you want it for a dining room, then you know that it has to be tall, large for the guests you are going to invite and in a suitable shape for your terrace: rectangular, square, round, etc.
In general, there are two questions you should ask yourself. One of them is what you are going to use the table for. The answer is easy since it will be between two options: large and tall to eat on it, or low to serve as a coffee or auxiliary table to leave some things while you are sitting on a chair or in an armchair.
The second question is the form it should have. Depending on the space, you can choose one or the other. There is usually four shapes: rectangular, oval, round or square. Sometimes, but looking hard, you could find some corner. You can even opt for those that are enlarged or for those that are foldable so that you do not have a problem with inclement weather.
The truth is that terrace tables are made of many materials: wood, iron, stainless steel, plastic… In this case we advise you to choose based on inclement weather. If you have a terrace where it rains, it's sunny, etc. It is better to have one that can withstand time or that is foldable and you can store it in a place where it does not suffer so that it lasts longer.
As for the color, it will depending on the decoration you have to combine well. Actually you can find almost all colors. Although the most common are black, white, brown (wood) and green. Grays are also becoming very fashionable because they are colors that can go well with everything.
Let's talk about price. A terrace table depends on its size and material to make it more expensive or cheaper. In general, you can find this type of table from 20 euros, the short ones that serve as an auxiliary. The largest ones can be worth more than 200 euros (but for 50-80 you can find).
Where to buy?
Now that you know everything you need to take into account when buying a terrace table, the next thing you should consider is where you are going to buy it. And in that respect we can also help you a little.
Here we propose a few stores to look at.
Amazon is one of the first for the variety it has, but also because they deliver it to your home and you don't have to carry it.
Most of the time they will come disassembled, but it will not be a problem to assemble them yourself in a matter of minutes. And the best thing is that you can find some original ones.
In the case of Carrefour, here it happens similar to Amazon. You will have variety and they take them home. In physical stores you will not find as many models as if you order them online.
In this case you will find different sizes and formats, depending on what you want the table for. You have it from small ones, which are central or auxiliary, or garden dining tables.
Also in Leroy Merlin there will be variety to choose from, with tables of different sizes, some of them folding, and also auxiliary tables so that you can use them as an annex to an armchair or sofa that you place on the terrace.
