Bar Tables and Stools Make Ideal Outdoor Furniture
If you're looking for a hip and unique way to add some life to your boring patio, consider mixing things up with a few bar table and stool sets. This is an excellent alternative to cookie cutter outdoor furniture and will give you more options when entertaining family and friends.
Whether your patio is small or large, balancing table space with standing or walking space can be a challenge. The goal should be to achieve a flow which allows for easy movement throughout the patio while still having the ability to seat a decent number of people. Bar sets give you this balance because of their tall, narrow design. Instead of plopping a large four or six seat patio table and chairs set in the middle of your patio, you can strategically place three or four small bar sets to achieve the same or greater number of seating while adding invaluable walking lanes to your outdoor space.
Outdoor gatherings usually lend themselves to having a number of guests seated while a number of people prefer to walk and mingle. Bar sets allow for this dichotomy more naturally by allowing for greater walking space and also by seating people higher than standard patio sets. The raised seat and table puts seated guests and those standing closer to eye level, so conversations and so forth can occur naturally between those who prefer to sit and those who would rather stand.
The flexibility of owning multiple bar sets as opposed to one large patio set is also an advantage. Being able to easily move and rearrange seating areas allows you to easily react to your guests tendencies and make the most of your allotted space. The smaller size also means bar sets can be stored more easily. Keeping them out of the rain and snow will add years to their life and allow them to retain their finish whether they're made of wood or synthetic materials.
