Bar Height Patio Furniture – Today’s Chic Trend In Outdoor Living Spaces

Bar Height Patio Furniture – Today’s Chic Trend in Outdoor Living Spaces

If you want to be considered fashionable by your friends and neighbors, you’ll want to make sure you take a good look at today’s bar height patio furniture.

Bar Height Patio Furniture is Stylish

I recently went to my friend Sheila’s house. She was so excited about her bar height patio furniture that she had to show me! Sheila had just furnished her deck with new patio furniture, and she wanted my opinion.

Sheila had chosen a bar height table with four chairs and an attractive bar height bistro set with two additional chairs. Both sets matched, and best of all, they were not expensive.

Bar height patio furniture is today’s newest trend in outdoor living spaces, be it patio, deck or even lawn furniture. By “bar height,” this furniture is taller than average, similar to bar stool height.

There are several materials that bar height patio furniture is made from, including wicker, rattan, pewter, aluminum, teak or metal, with some plastic pieces (called “resin”) also being manufactured. Some chairs include removable padded seats and backs, while others are designed to be used without cushions.

When you take outdoor furniture into consideration, you’ll want to remember to look for furniture that will be weather resistant and last a long time.

Even though you may not spend a lot on your outdoor furnishings, you certainly don’t want to be replacing them each year!

Bar Height Patio Furniture is Affordable

Many of the local big box stores like Walmart and Target are carrying bar height patio furniture, but you can also shop online as well as at other local shops. Garden centers, home improvement stores like The Home Depot and Menards, and even some specialty stores may carry this type of outdoor furnishings.

Prices can vary widely, starting at about $219 for a bar height bistro set with table and two chairs.

Online retailers can be more expensive. You’ll want to shop carefully since some retailers are looking to sell to those who want a patio set that is unique or one-of-a-kind. For example, the aluminum Tropitone Windsor Bar Height 3 piece Dining Set retails for about $2700.

Patio tables and chairs made from resin seem to be among the more inexpensive deck furniture.

Of course, you may also be able to find “deals” online, since retailers are working hard to encourage spending. Watch for specials and coupons, and don’t be afraid to call the company and ask if there are any additional discounts available.

Check for Weather Resistant Finishes

Bar height patio furniture can come in a number of weather resistant finishes. This is something you’ll want to research before your purchase. You’ll want to make sure that your bar height patio furniture doesn’t rust.

In addition, check the warranty on any chair cushions. See if the manufacturer is offering a warranty against the cushions fading.

Bar height tables will typically stand at about 40 inches, with chairs that fit the table comfortably.

Current styles include a table set with several chairs, a bistro set with a smaller table and two chairs, and a bar with stools. New styles are coming out shortly, so if you’re on the watch for the most up-to-date look, you’ll want to check back online and at your local stores.

I told Sheila that her deck furniture was beautiful!

It made me want to hurry home to shop for my own bar height patio furniture.
