One of the final touches to landscaping your yard is to add patio furniture. There are so many different styles and designs, however, that the decision can be overwhelming. Here are some tips to get you started.
Quality counts. You want something that will last more than one season. What you buy has to stand up to the sun, wind, rain and use. This is an example of something where the higher price usually is a good indicator of better quality. Buy within your means, but don’t skimp.
Comfort counts. Go to a place that has a variety of tables and chairs set up and try them out. Some chairs are so low to the ground that you almost don’t even want to sit down because of how much of a pain it is to get out of them. And some chairs are very unique looking, but when it comes right down to it, if you have a choice between it and a regular chair, you would choose the regular chair.
Umbrella? Yes, please. You will be kicking yourself for skipping it. You need something to help protect you from the sun and the wind.
Size matters. If you have a small patio, you don’t want a table that will seat 12 and has a huge umbrella. It will dwarf your space. If you have a large, spacious area, you don’t want to get a table that seats four. It will end up looking out of place, or like doll’s furniture. Get a size that matches your space.
