Choosing the Right Outdoor Furniture for You

Kick back and relax with outdoor furniture that fits your particular taste and comfort levels.  There is a wide variety of outdoor furniture choices available for you. Be sure to consider:

  • How well does the furniture withstand the elements?
  • Will the furniture be in the sun for a large part of the day?
  • How hot will the furniture be if I sit down on a summer day?
  • Is the furniture kid friendly?
  • What colors and designs are available?
  • Should I be concerned about moisture with rain, dew, and poolside splashing?
  • How much maintenance will be required?

All of these questions are very important to ask when looking at outdoor furniture options.  Below are some ideas to get you started on your hunt:

To the Beach – To remind you of waves splashing and beautiful sunsets, consider a beach-themed outdoor furniture design.  You can use wicker, sea shells and natural woods combined with fabrics that are light green, tan or sea foam blue.

Big parties – For those who love to entertain, consider having outdoor furniture to accommodate a lot of guests without over-crowding your entertainment area.  Choose bar stools, lounges, and even large bed-lounges as well as cushioned chairs and tables for dining or socializing.

Dark wood – For the feel of a remote lodge, opt for dark wood or rustic outdoor furniture that surrounds a fire feature.  This provides a cozy setting for intimate gatherings.

Cushions – Consider durable fabrics that can be easily rinsed or cleaned but still have comfort and an attractive design.  Large cushions are always a hit for guests, and you can use numerous small cushions in a variety of ways to decorate around your outdoor patio or pool.

Bar Area – You can have an island tiki bar or a very solid yet friendly bar that allows people to stand or sit on stools depending on their preference.  The bar could be built-in or a stand-alone unit if you like.

Different Materials – There are several materials to choose from, the most popular being teak, redwood, cedar, iron, and wicker.  Create a foundation that is consistent and then add variances of colors where appropriate.

Wheels – Adding wheels to your furniture can help you to organize and re-design on a whim.  Plus the wheels make it easy to move furniture to safety in the event of a storm.
