Garden table: properties and characteristics

When you decide to buy a garden table (as for any piece of furniture both internal and external), it is better to first acquire some information on the various products on the market and their characteristics, in order to then be able to decide which is the most suitable for our needs. There are garden tables of all types and made with a great variety of styles (modern, classic, rustic or exotic). Another element to consider are the dimensions and, consequently, the use you want to make of the table: for example, if the table is for decorative use only, if it has to accommodate only a few people or if it will be used for buffets or dinners. Open. Depending on the case, the table must be more or less large, or you can opt for an extendable table, so you can adapt it according to the occasion. The table that will be placed in the garden, therefore, must be functional and respect the needs for which we have decided to buy it. Furthermore, it must also fit in and harmonize with the rest of the garden, creating an appropriate and additional aesthetic effect to the space and environment in which it is positioned.

Garden table: types and varieties


The varieties of garden tables to choose from, as mentioned, are many, both by type, style and material. In fact, one of the main characteristics that we must consider is the resistance of the table to atmospheric agents (first of all, rain and sun) and the fact that it can last over time. This is especially true for the tables that will remain outdoors all year round, but also for those that will be open only in the summer. Of course, the table must also respond to the needs for which it was purchased. For example, if, especially during the summer, the garden is bathed in full sun, a functional table will have to provide a cover to shelter from direct sunlight. This cover can be a gazebo or a tent, or a tree with thick foliage; alternatively you can opt for an umbrella. In this case you will buy a table with a central hole where you can insert it. Another option is to choose an extendable table, as already mentioned: in this way, you will have a lot of space in the garden and, when open, it can be used for garden parties.

Wooden garden table: properties and characteristics


The choice of material is important. The materials used for garden tables are different from the materials used for indoor furniture. In fact, the needs are different, such as, for example, resistance to atmospheric agents. Plastic materials are very varied, from PVC to synthetic resin, some even aesthetically beautiful. One of the most popular choices is wood, if you want to stay on the classic side. In this case, the most suitable wood is teak, as it is very durable over time, very resistant to all atmospheric agents, and immune to mold, moths, salty air, wind and temperature variations. If you choose another type of wood, the tables must be protected with specific oils, to protect them from atmospheric agents, sun and moths. The oils, however, they must not be spread on the wood grain (therefore the oils must be chosen according to the type of wood the table is made of). Often these tables are treated with the decapé process, that is with a treatment of fake wear: this gives the tables an aged look of an antique piece.

Garden tables: other materials


as very often the processing is handcrafted and manual, with a wide range of colors ranging from antique white to black. Especially if you decide to opt for the Provencal style, the feet and the surface of the table can be decorated with motifs of flowers and plants (in fact, the floral theme is characteristic of the Provencal style).
