Winter is a great time to plan a new or updated outdoor living space. For design inspiration, check out the beautiful offerings from our outdoor furniture stores online or in person. By getting everything ready now, come springtime you’ll be all set to enjoy the new season outdoors with the first warm breeze and daffodil bloom.
What’s your style? Will you go for Southern charm with wicker or a tropical look with rattan? How about traditional wrought iron or sleek contemporary with cast aluminum?
How will you use your outdoor space? The answer to this question will help you determine the type of furniture pieces you need and how many. For outdoor dining for one, two or a family of four, choose a round table and chairs. To comfortably accommodate more diners, consider a large rectangular table. For a place to relax and read, take a nap or sunbathe, add lounge chairs or comfortable armchairs and ottomans. If you do a lot of entertaining, consider a good mix of chairs, loveseats, lounges and tables. A bar or bar height table with tall stools are just right for large groups since they add extra places for drinks and snack plates.
In outdoor spaces, you can add your own personality with colorful cushions in the new durable and beautiful fabrics. Create individual “rooms” with furniture placement and largest potted plants and trees. If you don’t have a covered patio or deck, it’s easy to provide shade with a table or free-standing umbrella and moveable gazebo with canvas coverings.
