Bar height patio furniture is really an opportunity to get more of a casual feeling in your outdoor space. This is also a modern piece of furniture. Right now outdoor kitchens are becoming very popular. Using this height of furniture gives you more counter space and it’s also an eating area as well. Even if you don’t have an outdoor kitchen you can still create an area for food prep quite simply. This is also going to be different from everyone else’s outdoor patio set just because of the height.
If you’re going for a mosaic tile top then you might want to keep it a little bit more modern just so that it’s in keeping with the silhouette. In this case, you could just have kind of a Spanish flair with metal stools and table frames. Then the top can feature a mosaic. A modern mosaic isn’t going to use all of the jagged pieces that you might be used to. Instead, it’s going to use smaller uniform pieces of a tumbled stone or tile. It’s also just going to have a few colors and it just uses a very simple kind of pattern. This is a way to make neutral colors a lot more interesting.
You can also make this a little bit more traditional even though it does have a very classic contemporary line to it. In this case, you could go for more of a Tuscan kind of theme. You’re going to want to stick with iron chairs and they should have scroll work on them. It should also have an upholstered seat or cushion that you can remove and clean periodically. You can have a glass or stone table top with this. This color palette isn’t going to really stand out from a lot of the other furniture that you might have in your space. However, it does really add interest and texture for a subtle detail to your patio.
