How to Choose the Perfect Furniture for Your Backyard Patio

The Garden furniture by the pool

Summer nights are perfect for spending time outside with family and friends.  If you are gearing up for an outdoor BBQ this weekend, the perfect patio furniture can make all the difference.  Here are a few tips to help you choose the perfect backyard patio furniture for your space.

Types of Outdoor Furniture:

  • Wrought Iron – Wrought iron furniture offers a classic look that is weighty enough to stay in place on a windy day.  Look for options that are powder-coated, UV-resistant and offer a warranty for the best results!
  • Aluminum – While not as heavy as the wrought iron metal furniture, it is lightweight and doesn’t rust.  This option is easily paired with fabric cushions that make the furniture easy-to-clean and maintain.
  • Wood – Wooden furniture helps give your space an outdoorsy look.  However, while the wood furniture does blend in better with your landscape, it also requires more maintenance.  Make sure that you know how to take care of your new furniture in order to prevent splitting, cracking, rotting and bugs.
  • Fabric – Fabric cushions are the best way to add comfort and coziness to your space.  However, choosing the right cushions can get pricey – make sure you are happy with your fabric choice!
