Buyer's guide to round garden table and chairs
When it comes to enhancing your outdoor space, a round garden table and chairs set can be a fantastic addition. Whether you enjoy hosting gatherings, dining alfresco, or simply relaxing in your garden, choosing the right set can make all the difference. The first consideration is to determine the available space so measure your outdoor area remembering to leave ample room for people to move around comfortably.
Outdoor furniture comes in various materials, including wood, metal, rattan and rope. Each material has its own advantages and considerations.
- Wood: Offers a natural, timeless look but may require periodic maintenance to protect it from weather elements.
- Metal: Provides durability and requires minimal maintenance, but some metals can be prone to rust so make sure you go for a powder coated aluminium.
- Rattan: Gives a stylish, tropical vibe and is lightweight. It can suit both a contemporary outdoor living space and a traditional English garden.

Comfort and style are an important consideration so opt for chairs with comfortable seating, such as cushions or ergonomic designs. If possible pop into the store and try out a few styles but bear in mind that we do not have the space on the shop floor to show all the designs we sell on the website. Consider the table height, making sure it complements the chair height for a comfortable dining experience.
Consider the level of maintenance required for the table and chairs. Most materials just regular cleaning, while wood may require occasional oiling or resealing.
The furniture cushions are all weatherproof but will look pristine for longer if taken indoors or stored in a cushion box over winter or when heavy rain is forecast.
Some sets may offer additional features like a central hole for an umbrella, adjustable feet for stability on uneven ground, or stackable chairs for easy storage.
Determine your budget range beforehand, as round garden table and chairs sets can vary widely in price based on the material, brand, and features.
Remember to consider long-term value and durability when making a purchasing decision. Also consider purchasing a garden parasol at the same time as your garden set, although the UK is not known for it’s hot weather all it takes is a couple of hours of hot sun to burn tender children’s skin.
By considering these factors, you can make an informed decision when choosing a round garden table and chairs set that meets your needs and enhances your outdoor living space. Enjoy your time outdoors in comfort and style!
