Choosing the right patio furniture will help you create your dream outdoor living space.Whether you’re designing a whole new outdoor living area or just looking to update your current space, some planning ahead will help ensure your vision comes to life. You’ll want to choose patio furniture and elements that suit your needs and will last for years to come.

Think About the Purpose of Your Patio

Everyone uses their space differently. Do you enjoy dining outside and entertaining guests? Are you dreaming of a poolside escape with plenty of spots to lounge in the sun? Maybe you’re seeking a conversational sitting area that can be used from spring right through to fall, with a fire pit to help you stay cozy on chilly nights. Thinking about how you intend to use your outdoor space will guide you in the right direction in terms of what furniture and features you may want to include.

Go for Quality Where it Matters

Quality materials like Sunbrella fabric will ensure your patio furniture lasts for years.Your patio furniture will spend a significant amount of time outside in the sun and harsh elements over the course of its life. It might make sense to bargain-hunt for trendy items like outdoor accent rugs, but think of patio furniture as an investment. Consider opting for pieces made with performance fabric and durable materials that are designed for outdoor use and built to last, like Sunbrella upholstery.

Remember the Extras

Patio umbrellas and other details will add the finishing touch to your outdoor living space.When creating your backyard oasis, sometimes the details can make all the difference. If your yard gets a lot of sun, you may want to consider a patio umbrella to offer some shade. Patterned accent throw pillows can add some personality and comfort to your outdoor seating area. Sticking with a certain theme or colour palette can also help tie the various elements of your space together.

Buy with Confidence
