You might have seen pictures of beautifully decorated backyards styled to perfection. All of the plants are healthy and kept under control, the decorative elements are just the right balance between eclectic and coordinated, and the people in the yard are as happy as can be. That’s a photo-worthy yard. Of course, you’d like something like that for yourself, but how do you make that happen. One way is by picking out just the right furniture to fill out the yard, without taking up too much space in the process.
One of those pieces of furniture is an outdoor patio side table. It is the little table meant to sit right by the side of seating, adding decoration and practical use all in one. An outdoor patio side table is convenient to have around to put down your glass cup, but also to be admired as decor. Being small, outdoor appropriate tables, they are easy to decorate with something placed on top like a tabletop torch or a small statue. But a well-designed side table is fit to stand out on its own. Here are a few general styles to keep your eyes on.
A widely popular style, minimalism is a fairly easy style to apply to your home. It usually relies on monochromatic color stories and clean lines to carry a vision. Some might hear the phrase minimalism and immediately go for a traditional minimal look like this all-white design This silver patio table takes minimalism down a more rustic route with its flat metal top that looks as if it could have been made by hand. With beautiful examples like these, it is no surprise that many would want to forego additional decorative elements to focus on simplicity.
While it is an easy task to find an outdoor patio side table made of metal, it is a different situation finding one that presents metalwork in a detailed, thoughtful way. This kind of craftsmanship and commitment to detail in design is what creates side tables like this barrel-shaped side table with a wood-finished top. It combines the simplicity of its shape with the hardness of the metallic wire frame to create a balanced design. A more modern-looking example is their entirely metallic outdoor side patio table with a curved base. It shows attention to detail without being over-worked or underworked.
While minimalism and toned down designs work for some, there are still many among us who would prefer the maximalist take on style. Or at least, those who seek out more bold, stylized decorations for their homes and yards. One such example could be this pair of copper, floral designed side tables which play with the use of negative space. Pieces like these make wonderful stand-outs to a yard when everything else is kept subdued but can also look amazing when the space is highly decorated in a more loud, eclectic manner.
Now that you’ve gotten a better look at some of the different styles that outdoor patio side tables come in, you are ready to find the one that suits you. Your backyard decorations are allowed to venture away from the interior design of your home, so you can have a clean minimal style indoors, and an eclectic floral dream in your yard. You can keep only a consistent color story throughout or just follow along with the same style you enjoy in your home. This is your space to have fun decorating so when you sit down outside, everything seems just perfect.
