When the weather is nice and there are parks and playgrounds around, lots of people like to go on picnics. Some people prefer to spread out a blanket on the ground, but some people prefer to eat on outdoor picnic tables. Outside picnic tables can be such a nice thing to have available, whether at your home or at a park. Who wants to have to drag out the kitchen table, or sit in rickety folding chairs, outside, when you're having a family barbecue? Who wants to have to bring a big spread to the park, only to realize you've forgotten your picnic blanket, and now have to sit in the dirt and twigs in order to sit and eat your dinner? Outdoor picnic tables to the rescue!
At home, you can choose all sorts of options, and you probably even have more choices, since your selection isn't necessarily limited primarily to heavy-duty construction. You have a little more leeway with something that will only tend to be used occasionally, by a single family(or a family with occasional guests) than you do with having to choose outdoor picnic tables that can stand up to the regular heavy usage they might at a playground or campsite. At your home, you have only your family's preferences to keep in mind while choosing an outdoor picnic table.
At a park or other public venue you're going to want to look at outdoor picnic tables that can stand up to the use, and potential misuse, it will likely see at these venues. You know you're going to have people climbing on the tables, as well as birds flying overhead. You're going to want to keep things like this in mind as you choose the style and materials for your outdoor picnic tables.
Outdoor picnic tables can be either stand alone with movable bases, stand-alone with separate ground-fastened bases, or all-in-one pieces of furniture where the seating is attached to the table. The tables come in different shapes, so you can get a square table if you want, or a round table, if that's what you prefer. There are some where the tabletop overhangs the benches, in order to make it handicapped accessible. That way, someone can wheel a wheelchair right up to the table. Some tables, instead, have a split seating design, where there is space for the wheelchair between the rest of the seating along one side of the table.
The metal tables are often coated with a substance to make them need less maintenance, and stand up to more use. Thermal-plastic PVC coating comes in plenty of different color choices, so you should be able to find a color scheme that works for your design needs. You can also purchase coordinating or contrasting umbrellas for your tables. In addition to considering umbrellas to go along with your tables, some of the tables come with attachable awnings, so you can make your own shade, even if there are no trees around to provide shade for your picnic.
