Choosing the Perfect Patio Furniture
August 29, 2020
When you choose the perfect patio furniture, it brings function and comfort to your backyard. Outfit your outdoor living area with a spacious table and comfortable chairs, or you could even choose a classy sofa and rocking chair (loaded with comfortable cushions, of course). We want you to choose furniture that fits your style, helps you feel comfortable, and makes your outdoor space an inviting space to spend time in. Here are some of our favorite tips.
How Will You Use Your Space?
Knowing how you want your outdoor patio to function is the first step. Are you looking for a spot to entertain friends for dinner, or do you want a comfortable chair where you can drink coffee by the fire pit and watch your kids play? Dream big! Take some time to measure your patio so you know how much room you have to work with before you start shopping.
Look for Comfort and Convenience
Try out the patio furniture before you decide to buy it so you know it’s comfortable. After all, uncomfortable patio furniture will sit outside unused. However, if your outdoor furniture is comfortable, you’ll use that space as a second living area. Consider convenience when you’re shopping as well. Look for furniture that can endure all four seasons of weather without special care.
Store in the Off Season
Not everyone has the option to store their patio furniture during the off-season. However, if you can store your furniture during the winter months, it will add years to its life. If your storage space is limited, look for furniture pieces that fold or stack so it’s easier to store them.
Add Color with Cushions
Most people feel more freedom to use color when they’re decorating an outdoor space, and we couldn’t agree more! When buying your outdoor patio furniture, make sure you don’t burn out on the colors you choose. The best option is to buy pieces that are neutral, then choose cushions and pillows to add color. This allows you to change your colors as often as you want without having to replace all of your furniture.
Choose Quality Patio Furniture
You’ve heard the phrase, “You get what you pay for.” It’s true with patio furniture. Plastic chairs and side tables might look okay for the first year, but they lose their color and break easily. Check reviews and ask friends for references before you make your purchase.
