When it’s warm outside, it’s hard to think of anything better than sitting on your deck or balcony and having a morning cup of coffee or enjoying dinner with family and friends. With the right patio furniture, you can increase the usability of your outdoor space, no matter the size. Choose from a wide variety of materials, colours and styles, and focus on the following questions to find the right items:
- How often and for what purposes do you use your patio?
- What type of furniture set-up are you looking for?
- How much sun does your patio typically receive?
- What materials provide the right combination of style and durability?
- What do you need to do to maintain your patio furniture’s appearance and where can you store it in colder months?
If you only use your patio occasionally, a few basic items will suffice. But if you entertain frequently or spend a considerable amount of time outdoors, shop for multipurpose items that can stand up to wear and tear.
