Finding the Best Bistro Set for Your Patio or Balcony Space
If you happen to be shopping for some type of outdoor furniture and you do not have a large space to work with, consider searching for a bistro set that will fit your small patio or balcony. After all, this is the perfect solution for anyone who enjoys apartment living. If you have some sort of comfortable outdoor furniture, you will be more willing to utilize this space that you have.
It is always comforting to relax and watch the sunset after a long day perhaps with a glass of wine and a snack?
Some of my favorite Bistro sets and why:
I like this Bistro Set because it is comfortable to sit on and rattan is always stylish I would add a colorful outdoor cushion just to add more color and comfort. I have some examples further down in the article.
In most cases, a bistro set is going to come in a three piece combination set that is going to work perfectly for two people. This is the perfect opportunity for you to enjoy a meal outdoors or even just a cocktail while you unwind from work. There is nothing more relaxing than the fresh breeze blowing through your hair and being outside if you have been cooped up in an office all day.
I find that once I get home if I change clothes and immediately go outside to water plants on my patio and just sit for a few minutes, it makes all the difference in my evening attitude.
If your space is so small that you need a fold up bistro set, then this set might be an option. It looks very stylish and it folds up for easy storage.
There are so many different options to choose from when it comes to small patio furniture. Many people prefer to enjoy their dinner out on the patio. This is a great way to have a romantic dinner for two and enjoy one another’s company without a television or the telephone to distract you (if you make it a cell free zone lol).
A bistro set perhaps sitting underneath a pergola is a sexy setting, personally I don’t have the yard space for a pergola but always wanted one. Add a small outdoor tabletop fireplace, perhaps some outdoor patio lights (I just love the Edison type LED lights) and you are set to read a good book, entertain some friends or that someone special.
If you are looking for a way to enjoy a private conversation with someone and you live with more than one other person, going outside and sitting somewhere comfortable might be a great idea. If you are comfortable, then the conversation should easily flow. Nothing worse than trying to relax and enjoy your company while sitting on uncomfortable furniture.
Just like any other patio set, a bistro set comes in many different styles. While I like the look of the cast iron it can get very hot in the summer where I live. I don’t want burns on my legs with the design of the patio set. So for me personally, I stay away from the iron sets.
Why is a Bistro Set vs Regular Patio Furniture
The reason that a bistro set is so popular for many homeowners is because they are very affordable and it doesn’t take up much room. I also have one like this on my front porch since it is so much smaller than my back patio area. To me it makes the entrance to my home a little cozier feeling. I have a little plant on the table and decorative back cushions (if you click on this link it will take you to the page and there are a bunch of different choices for outdoor patio pillows) on the 2 chairs. As an example of pillows I like both of these, but couldn’t use them on the same porch.
This set works on my front porch since it is a little more compact!
More Bistro Set Options
I have included a few more Bistro Sets that I thought looked great, if you are interested in more information on the set, click on the photo and it will take you to that particular sets information page.
I thought this one was cool since it was a glider. I like chairs that move and rock, reminds me of sitting on my grandparents porch drinking ice tea.
I saw this one on someone’s porch on my way home and thought it looked very sleek while being comfortable.
Again with the rocking chairs. I liked this one because the seat was wider as is my butt and it rocks. LOL.
Whichever you choose, I hope you enjoy your bistro set as much as I’ve enjoyed mine. We all need to get outside more and away from computer/phone/tablet screens. Even if just for a few minutes everyday. Listen for nature sounds even if you are in the city like I am, I can usually hear something nature provides.
