What is a patio side table?

A patio side table is a table designed to sit beside a patio sofa or outdoor sectional couch. Although it’s a small table, it’s an important addition to your patio.

Depending on what type of patio sofa you have, there are many different types of outdoor side tables to complement it.

How to use a patio side table

How you’ll use your patio side table or tables depends on what your outdoor patio is like. If you have your outdoor patio set up like your living room, with an outdoor TV and outdoor speakers, you’ll want your patio side table to hold the same types of things as an indoor side table. You can place your remote control, charging station for phones and tablets, drinks, and food on your outdoor side table.

If your outdoor space is strictly for enjoying nature, a patio side table can be used to store items you’d like to leave outside but don’t want to be exposed to weather. In that case a patio side table with extra storage is a good choice, and some are shaped like a box with a lid so you can place pillows or outdoor décor inside when you’re not using them.
