If you’re interested in designing you dream deck or patio, consider including appropriate patio furniture. Outdoor patio furniture establishes a comfortable and welcoming setting in your outdoor living space that beckons friends and family to spend some down time or meal time outside.
With all the patio furniture selections available at Friedman’s Home Improvement, how do you select the right patio furniture for you and your family? It is important to choose patio furniture that will not only meet your practical needs, but also cater to your tastes and style. There is a wide variety of materials and textures to choose from when choosing patio furniture including the following:
Wicker and ‘loom’ patio furniture–Woven material sets that are available include chairs, side tables, large tables and rockers.
Wrought iron patio furniture–These are available in multiple colors, and depending on the style or brand, you can have it as ornate or simple as you would like.
Wood patio furniture–Wood is a great material used for outdoor furniture. You can have pieces that interchange or expand, like tables that can expand, and chairs that can convert into serving buffets.
Plastic–These sets are cost-effective, and offer a nice look mixed with glass or metal.
Once you have selected which type of patio furniture you’d like, then you’ll need to think about your needs and the area where you are going to place the furniture. Will the wood, wicker, nylon, or iron furniture withstand the climate and moisture found within your yard? Though we don’t have considerably wet weather in Sonoma County, wet puddles from the yard’s sprinkler system can be damaging to the cushions, wood, and metal. Perhaps you want to consider placing some of your patio furniture in a covered porch area, if that works well with your dream patio’s design.
The next step is to select which pieces of furniture you will need. If you do a lot of entertaining, select a large set to accommodate your guests. Sets of patio furniture come in many sizes, including table length, and the number of chairs. If you need to expand your smaller set, purchase more chairs and additional side tables.
Whatever patio furniture you select, it is wise to measure your patio and deck space to make sure everything will fit…including those areas where you plan to place your furniture in storage. There is nothing worse than getting the set that is perfect for you home, only to find out that it is too large, or that you could have included more pieces.
