Outdoor Patio Furniture - An investment not to postpone!

Outdoor patio furniture - While looking to buy long lasting furnishings for your patio consider the many options in both style and materials available.

Remember that designing your backyard space with just the right garden furniture requires a similar design hand to that required when furnishing your home's interior.

First consider the size of your patio. If you think space may be tight, measure before shopping online or at the store. A basic rule of thumb for a well furnished patio...

  • a 48" round table with four chairs will need a 10' X 10' space for comfortable use. This outdoor table will seat four
  • a 72 inch long oval or rectangular table seats six
  • chairs are approximately 30" wide
  • loveseats 50" and sofas approximately 75"
