Here are some of the best outdoor patio furniture options you should consider for your space:

Patio Dining Set
As it works for a space of any size, a patio dining set should be at the top of your list. Depending on the size of your family and how many people you expect to have over, you can choose from smaller sets that seat four people or a larger set that seats eight. You’ll also have the option of choosing a set that comes with an umbrella, a bench in place of chairs, and table height. In terms of material, acrylic cotton blend, and olefin are often the best choices as they’re weather resistant and generally the most inexpensive option. Be sure to check the manufacturer’s label for warranty details.
When it comes to sofas, there are countless options to choose from. Are you interested in a small lounger, three-seater sofa, or five-seater sectional for lying down? Once you’ve considered the size of your sofa, you can start looking into the ideal material for it. Synthetic resin wicker is a common option as it’s lightweight, easy to clean, and highly durable, unlike cheap PVC wicker which can quickly become brittle and crack over time. Another great option is teak as it’s hardwood with a grained finish and is suitable for all types of weather. While it does take some work to keep it in great condition and prevent it from absorbing too much moisture, it’s a great choice for its style and comfort.
Ready to relax in the sun? Whether you’re getting a tan, reading a book, or just want some rest, a reclining chair is a perfect place to lounge. As these have large cushions, you’ll want to be sure to pick one with material that is resistant to heavy sunlight, staining, and moisture. To maximize comfort, the best option is to get a chair with a sturdy steel frame and adjustable legs as well as back support. For material, you can choose mesh recliners for their lightweight, foldable design, or wicker for their durability and easy-to-clean surface.
Bar Serving Cart
Interested in hosting an open-air happy hour? Outdoor bar carts are specifically designed to withstand heat, heavy rain, and ice. A cart with wheels is perfect for moving it around your space and giving you the option to easily move it indoors if needed. It also prevents you from having to move all of your tools and drinks inside every time you use it. Depending on your style, you can choose something like a rolling bar cart with an ice bucket, wine rack, and glass tabletop perfect for cutting garnishes, or a metal folding bar cart that’s perfect for a small space that could benefit from compact storage.
Now that you have a vision for what your patio will look like, you should also consider some accessories to further customize your space and make it more comfortable. Here are a few ideas:
- Plants: This can include outdoor plants like flowers, annuals, perennials, and herbs. They can be planted individually with different pots and plant stands or together in a raised garden box.
- Lights: Depending on your space, you can use things like string lights, curtain lights, or lanterns.
- Accent pillows: Accent pillows are a great way to make your furniture pieces more comfortable and add some fun colors and textures.
