1. Comfort

The most important thing when deciding to purchase a piece of patio furniture is comfort! It doesn't matter how cute, cool, or custom a piece is if it feels like you are sitting on a boulder, you are never going to use it!

So unless your main goal is to sit inside your home and simply admire your patio set from indoors, comfort should be your first priority.

This depends on the material you select, wood or cushion? Metal or wicker? Before you make this choice though, consider the rest of the tips we advise all buyers to take into consideration.

Durability may steer you away from cushions, but color and quality may lead you somewhere else. 

Weigh the pros and cons, keep reading, and we believe a decision will come to you.

2. Durability

Durability is key, not only do you want your outdoor furniture to last, but you also don't really want to have to put a ton of work into its upkeep. 

Whether your furniture is up against pets, kids, or summer BBQ's, it is important to find a set that will last, but that is low maintenance enough that you don't feel like you need to borrow some plastic from your grandmother's couch to protect it.

3. Color 

Ah, color. This is mostly aesthetic, but also important because you will have to look at your outdoor furniture for almost 3/4 of the year.

You need to be proud to show off your outdoor summer style at every BBQ, Birthday Party, and Bonfire you host this year.

So don't rush to a decision and decide to make it work. Your perfect pieces are out there, and we are here to help you find them!

4. Quality 

The quality of your furniture is also very important.

Quality pieces do typically come with a higher price tag, but the expense will easily pay itself off when you realize you don't have to replace your beloved patio set every year.

5. Storage

This factor isn't important to everyone, but it should be. Think you don't need extra storage on your porch or patio, think again.

With kids playing and pets running around, there is going to be toys everywhere, keep yourself organized and your sanity in check with the essentials always within reach.

Try side tables with drawers, an ottoman with a secret compartment, or under couch space. You'll thank us later. 

Now that you know what you should be looking for in your patio furniture, it is time to pick the pieces!

Couches, Tables, and Chairs, Oh My! 


Adirondack or dining? The options are endless, and the types of patio couches or lawn chairs you desire truly depends on what you want to use them for.

Sitting around the fire, outdoor dining, sunning, or relaxing with a good book, these are some tough choices, unless you buy a set versatile enough to satisfy all of these needs. 

Find the seat you need, with selections from lounge chairs, cushioned sofas, sectionals, Adirondacks, old-fashioned rockers, dining sets, and lawn chairs.
