Best Outdoor Dining Sets for 2022

  • What Kind of Patio Dining Set Should You Buy?

    Looking to add a dining set to your patio? There are many options to choose from to find the best patio dining set for your outdoor space – material, set size, chair types, cushions, and extension tables are just some of the options you can choose from! You must also take into consideration how much space you have, if you have company or parties often, and what look fits best with your patio’s style. As the expert on outdoor furniture, BBQGuys is here to help. We’ve compiled a list of the best patio dining sets by material to assist you in finding the perfect set for your needs, style, and budget. To ensure you’ll be happy with your patio dining set for many years to come, we’ve used the following three categories to base our list on:

    • Value - The value of a patio dining set should not be solely based on price. We see value as the combination of features, quality of materials, design, construction, and price. For example, Sunbrella fabric adds to the cost but is much more durable than other outdoor fabrics – it is mold, mildew, fade, and rot resistant.

    • Durability - To determine durability, we consider the materials, quality of construction, ability to handle outdoor elements, and amount of care needed for upkeep. While all of our furniture is for outdoor use, some materials are more durable than others and some require less upkeep than others. For example, wood patio dining sets require more upkeep than cast aluminum patio dining sets. For more information, check out our Guide to Outdoor Furniture Materials and our Patio Furniture Cleaning Guides.

    • Features - Dining sets can have different features such as included cushions (and the fabric used to make them), extension dining tables, and various seat features (folding, stacking, swivel rocker, and more). Some features add versatility to the dining set, making it more appealing and a better value. For example, folding chairs make storage easy if you have limited space and an extension table offers the flexibility to have larger gatherings while still having a smaller table for everyday use.

Best Aluminum Patio Dining Sets

Aluminum is one of the most enduring and bestselling outdoor furniture materials. Cast aluminum patio dining sets are made by pouring molten aluminum into molds and welding the solid pieces together. They're sturdy enough to withstand wind, yet light enough to move around, and can have more detailed designs and minimal maintenance. On the other hand, extruded aluminum patio dining sets are hollow frames — while lighter weight and easier to move, they are easier to blow over and more likely to dent or bend. However, some manufacturers include supports designed within the extrusion to reinforce against dents and bends.

Best Wicker Patio Dining Sets

There are many different styles, types, and colors of wicker patio furniture. All of our wicker is resin which makes it weather resistant. It also does not absorb moisture, is easy to clean, and does not split or crack. Our wicker patio dining sets are on trend with mixed materials and wicker dining chairs. Choose from a variety of styles and finishes to match your outdoor space.

Best Wood Patio Dining Sets

Our wood patio dining sets come in several different types of wood such as shorea, acacia, and eucalyptus. Wood furniture brings a classic feel to any outdoor space and is easy to style. Unlike other materials, wood has the added beauty of the natural grain. Along with being naturally beautiful, wood dining sets stay cooler than other materials. For a natural, classic feel, choose a wood patio dining set.

Best Sling Patio Dining Sets

Sling patio dining sets are a great choice for those who have a pool or for those who want a coastal look. Well-tensioned sling does not break easily and is durable for normal use. Choose from a variety of colors and textures to match the style of your outdoor space. Chairs with sling don’t need cushions as they provide a comfortable seat on their own. Sling material is low-maintenance as it dries quickly, drains easily, and is simple to clean.
