With BBQ season starting, many homeowners are looking for ways to make their outdoor living areas more welcoming and functional for the upcoming summer BBQs. The food doesn’t need to be fancy when you have an incredible outdoor dining set. Standard BBQ fare is great, especially when served on a spacious, functional and beautiful outdoor table.
Looking for a patio dining setup that offers plenty of space for family and friends for all your summertime get-togethers? Let’s look at some ideas for outdoor table sets and seating that fit the bill for BBQ season.
#1: Bench Seating
Versatile, casual and spacious, bench seating is a stylish way to add seating space to your outdoor dining table. Benches can be swapped out for chairs as needed and can serve multiple functions on your patio, from dining to lounging to giving kids a place to sit.
#2: Swivel Chairs
A dinette set with swivel chairs offers added convenience to your BBQ guests. Comfortable and easy to use, swiveling chairs make sitting down—and getting up for seconds!—a breeze.
#3: Patio Set with Umbrella
A complete patio set with a cantilever umbrella is the ideal setup for your summer BBQ. The patio umbrella shades your guests from the hot sun, an outdoor sofa keeps them comfortable while they enjoy each other’s company, and multiple tables provide a convenient place to set food and drinks down.
#4: Cocktail Table
Big backyard gatherings mean lots of food to go around—and for all that food, you’ll need plenty of table space to serve it up. Outdoor cocktail tables are a great complement to your dining table. An extra table is the perfect place to set out appetizers or side dishes while you grill the main course, or to store plates, utensils and refreshments your guests can help themselves to.
With these functional furniture elements, you can easily get your patio or backyard living space into tip-top shape and ready for BBQ season.
