Summertime is here with a bang. It's warm, sunny, and feels wonderful to be outside. 'Tis the season for BBQs and other outdoor entertainment. It's important that you have the proper dinette furniture to go along with the season. Choosing a dinette set for the patio is easier than you might think.
First, consider the size of your space. It's important that everyone is comfortable when sitting around the table. You don't want people to have to squeeze around when they need to get up for more food or to play their turn in boccee ball. Be sure the table and chairs you get are big enough for the amount of people that you want to entertain but not so big that it swallows your backyard or patio.
Second, be sure you choose a set that is meant to be outdoors. Check with the sales person or manufacturer to see if there is any chance of rusting or sun damage to the table and chairs. You may also want to ask about covers, umbrellas, and other accessories at this time. If the set can't be left in the rain and you don't have a covered porch or patio, you may want to reconsider your choice.
