One particular type of patio table top which deserves special mention is the kind of outdoor table top that has a fire pit in it. You don't have to put fire in the pit.


Patio Table Top

As any professional decorator could tell you, a patio table top for your outdoor furniture can do so much more than just hold food. A table top can easily become the most striking element in your patio set, really setting the visual tone for the rest of the furniture. That's why you need to carefully consider your table top, particularly if you're putting together a patio set piece by piece. Though this is not how most people decorate their outdoor space, doing so can easily put you a cut above the rest, and you'll end up with something that's uniquely own.

One particular type of patio table top which deserves special mention is the kind of outdoor table top that has a fire pit in it. You don't have to put fire in the pit. You could put some ice in your outdoor table top, and you'd have a place where you could keep your drinks cold while you're outside. If you do put fire in it, you can gather around it with your family and cook your kabobs, weenies, and marshmallows. It will also keep you warm, so you enjoy being outside even later in the year. After all, enjoying being outside is what our furniture is all about.


What to Know Before You Call for Replacement of your Patio Table Top

Find out if your table’s design will allow you to install a replacement top. Check to make sure that the table has a removable metal rim or some other design feature that will allow you to set the acrylic replacement top in place. Also, particularly if the frame is metal, check to make sure that it has not become warped by the same impact that broke the table top. If the frame has warped, a new table top may not fit even if it is the same size as the original.

Determine the size requirements for your replacement patio table top. If the table is circular, stretch a tape measure across the surface from one end of the other, passing through the center, to measure the diameter of the space into which the top must fit. If the table is in the shape of a square or rectangle, measure the length and width. Please note that it is important to record the size the table top must be in order to fit into the frame. This measurement will most likely be smaller than the diameter of the frame itself! You should also measure the required thickness for the table top. If there needs to be a hole in the middle for an umbrella, make sure to measure its diameter and precise location as well. If you have a rectangular top with rounded corners, check out this diagram on how to measure the radius of the patio table corners.

What do you want your replacement patio table top to look like? Table tops are most often manufactured with a translucent pattern to ensure that they can endure scratching and remain attractive through years of use. Make sure to let the salesperson on the other end of the line know what your own aesthetic requirements are so that they can identify the perfect product for your needs.
