September 25, 2017 by · Leave a Comment 

Summary: Whether your furniture is beat-up or you simply want to change things up, there are some tips you should keep in mind when looking for new outdoor furniture pieces.

Stick to a Theme

Buying new furniture for your outdoor patio can be an overwhelming task without a proper plan of attack. A good way to approach decorating is coming up with a theme or aesthetic that you would like to express. For example, when the items in a room, from the couches and chairs all the way to the coasters on the coffee table, fit a particular color scheme or have similar designs, the room, as a whole, looks more welcoming and put-together. The same applies to your outdoor patio as well.

Too many clashing components can impact the overall vibe given off by the patio. To combat this, approach the design phase with the intention of making sure each item contributes to the theme you are creating. While function may be more important than form, in most furniture-related cases, aiming for a coherent vision will ultimately help the overall image.

Replacing Your Pieces

Regardless of whether your furniture has experienced wear-and-tear or you want to remodel to keep things fresh, you need to be wise when deciding which pieces to purchase first. Look around your patio and make note of the replacements that are the most urgent. Remodeling it does not need to be a large overnight project. In fact, it might be wise to not even think of it as such a quick and drastic change.

Focus on purchasing high quality basic pieces of furniture first, whether it’s a couch or a table that fits the theme you are going for but is not too visually ‘loud’ – don’t forget to verify it’s meant for outdoor use. Higher quality pieces may have a larger upfront cost, it is worth keeping in mind that a higher quality item may not need to be fixed or replaced as quickly as a cheap, inexpensive one. Versatility is key, because high quality pieces that will last can work with a variety of different themes and last you quite a long time.

Know Where to Shop

Knowing where to shop is just as important as knowing what to look for. When experimenting with a different look and feel to your patio, you do not want to immediately splurge on many furniture pieces. Certain stores offer a wide variety of budget-friendly options that both look good and will not hurt your wallet. Be sure to consider what shops are experts when it comes to exterior patio design.

The more you experiment the more you will understand which sorts of pieces, colors, or designs you tend to gravitate towards. Branching out and going for more expensive items will not be as big of a risk, because you will know how to incorporate them into your home and you will be certain that you will enjoy it.
