The perfect patio furniture can make all the difference as you’re enjoying outdoor living. With so many choices in Outdoor Furniture, where do you start? Here are the top four options to make your patio space suit your lifestyle and budget. Add those finishing touches like the professionals, and enjoy your summer in style.

Choose the Perfect Outdoor Furniture & Accessories:

Cast/Wrought Iron:
Modern cast iron chair frames and tables are made from a variety of cutting-edge alloys, which are bent and welded by hand, that allow stronger and more attractive designs. These weighty pieces stand the test of time and are usually, finished in solid white or black.

Cast Aluminum:
Pieces of cast aluminium are built for outdoors and do not rust or fade. Intricately designed chair frames and tables are light weight and easily moved. Pewter, brushed bronze, and black are a few colour options.

Aluminum Frame with Sling Seating:
These chairs incorporate a tubular extruded aluminum frame that will not rust, and with UV-resistant finishes they look great for years. The sling seat is a durable woven fabric that is exceptionally comfortable without a cushion. Woven sling seating comes in a wide variety of colours, from greys to brown and amazing brighter hues.

Resin Wicker:
Resin wicker furniture is crafted from a high density polyethylene resin and hand woven around a heavy gage aluminum frame that will not rust. Another great outdoor option in both extreme heat and cold, and pieces are resistant to chlorine, sagging and mildew.
Finishing Touches:

Outdoor Storage:
Complete your outdoor space with storage and entertaining pieces. From benches, side tables, to trolleys, all will keep you organized for your activities.

Outdoor Accessories:
The large or small tilt umbrella with middle of side stand offers shade from the sun and shelter from light rain, and can be repositioned with the moving sun. Hammocks offer more seating, (or should I say sleeping), for your outdoor space. You can swing away whether on a stand or between two trees.

Pillows and Seat Cushions:
A great option for outdoor fabric is Sunbrella fabric. This fabric offers the look and feel of cotton but does not fade or degrade in hot sun. A second fabric option is 100% Polyester, as this fabric naturally resists sun and degrading. You have endless options of colour and design!

Now you know the secrets – let me know how you make out!
