Outdoor Furniture

Modern outdoor furniture is usually weather resistant and comfortable, making it a great addition to the next outdoor family BBQ or summer party. From outdoor sofas to individual patio chairs and outdoor dining furniture, there's no limit to creating the perfect combination of items for an outdoor living area. Outdoor patios are not just dining tables and sofas. Consider adding patio chairs to supplement seating, or a bench to accent an open space. To keep cool in the heat, an outdoor ceiling fan is a must. A variety of lighting fixtures are also required, such as flushmounts, wall sconces, portable lamps, post lights and landscape lighting.

Other Considerations

An important first step is to decide where exactly the new pieces are placed. Knowing if the furniture is used for the patio or the deck versus the front porch will help determine what is needed. If furnishings and lighting are already in the outdoor living area, consider coordinating with a similar color palette. Consider the style too—black, white and gray make a minimalist statement, while colorful outdoor sets offer a popping personality. Wooden outdoor furniture is a great choice for matching the natural aesthetic. 

Furniture that can withstand the elements and be easily maintained and cleaned is desirable. For wooden outdoor furniture, pay close attention to what types of cleaners are able to be used as there are different suggestions for varying types of wood. For metal outdoor furniture, you use a wire brush to remove any built-up rust. Routine maintenance will keep any furniture looking new and clean.
