This Stylish Patio Table Features a Hidden Cooler and It’s 21% Off
Working at Apartment Therapy, it’s hard not to be inspired to update your space. So when summer rolled around, I took a look at my family home’s outdoor patio space and said to myself, “We can do better than this” and took to the drawing board. There were a couple of things we immediately put on our to-do list like painting the deck a rust color to brighten up the space and finding a stellar patio umbrella (this lighted one was the unanimous pick), but perhaps the most important pieces we were looking for were the outdoor furniture. We had a couple of criteria every piece had to meet: It had to be stylish, it had to be functional, and it had to be durable. So as we began out hunt, we looked everywhere for right pieces. That’s when we came across perhaps the greatest outdoor furniture find any of us had seen: the Keter Outdoor Side Table with Cooler.
The second we came across this table, it was love at first sight. Featuring a chic rattan look, it’s actually made from a durable resin designed to prevent rusting, peeling, and denting in all weather conditions, rain, or shine (A+ on the durability criteria). But while the style immediately caught our eye, the pièce de résistance was its transformative design. With a quick pull, the tabletop lifts up 10 inches, instantly turning into a bar table while also revealing a hidden cooler with a 7.5-gallon capacity. Talk about elevating your outdoor entertaining space!
So, yes, needless to say, this was one of the first pieces we picked up. Assembly took about five minutes — just a couple of screws later and it was ready to use. We decided to break it in on a day when we had a lot of people over to really put it to the test. We found it was even roomier than we thought it would be, holding tons of ice and numerous drinks of all sizes. It also did a great at keeping the ice and subsequent drinks cold. But perhaps my favorite part of this table is how easy it is to clean up — once the ice is melted, simply pull the plug to drain the cooler and you’re done. It’s also a perfect size for our compact space, coming in at just 19.5 in. W x 19.5 in. D x 22.5 H and extends to 33 H when opened.
The Keter Cooler Table normally retails for just under $100, but right now you and your family can get your hands on it for less than $65 (that’s almost 40 percent off!) So if you’re looking for the perfect outdoor accessory this summer, this is it. After all the compliments we got on it, it has me wondering — what handy pieces will Keter come up with next?
