A bistro table offers a cozy area for eating and relaxing on a small patio or balcony. A bistro set also helps create a distinct conversation area in larger spaces.
Where to Use a Bistro Table
A patio bistro table provides room for two to comfortably enjoy coffee or cocktails in the fresh air. Use a bistro table and chairs to create a small dining area on a front porch or apartment terrace. Mix and match chairs, or go for a bistro table set with chairs included. You can also use an outdoor bistro table as an extra surface on a larger deck. Set one by the grill to hold grill supplies or tuck one by the back door to display stylish planters.
You can even use pieces as an indoor cafe table and chairs. With their dainty design, small bistro tables have a minimal footprint, so they work in tight spaces where a full dining table would not. Place one in a breakfast nook or sunroom. For more flexibility, choose a foldable bistro table. You can collapse it down for easy storage and pull it out when you need an additional surface indoors or out.
Styles and Materials
From aluminum to wood to glass-topped, table styles range from antique to modern. A pristine pool area calls for a durable metal bistro table that adds sleek style. A garden spot surrounded by trees is the perfect home for a slatted wooden cafe table. For a stone patio, consider a mosaic bistro table. It will add a decorative but natural vibe to your patio decor.
A resin bistro table has the look and feel of wood but is completely weatherproof and lightweight. It will stand up to the elements as well as daily wear and tear. It’s an ideal choice for families with children.
