They entertain there, they sit back and relax on fine afternoons, and sitting around a fire pit after a hard day at work is a great way to unwind. You can relax and read a book as the kids play, or chat with friends while ribs sizzle on the barbecue. Many of us spend a substantial amount of money buying good quality patio equipment and furniture, to make sure we get as much use as possible from our patio area, and to make it elegant and comfortable for visitors and ourselves.

A piece of clothing lying on the dirty looking rug, and a bare look accentuated by a couple of poorly polished cane chairs. A centre table that looks like it came straight from a garage sale. What comes to mind? A bachelor’s pad, no doubt, and one who is not too concerned about the way he lives. If this is the way he keeps the furniture in his home, this is probably how he will treat all who come in contact with him- a casual, laid back attitude that whatever is, goes. Neatness is the last thing I’m bothered about. Let me live my life- others don’t really matter.

Ideas and Tips For smaller spaces, patio furniture may be limited to just a few pieces instead of the bevy of choices that are available for those with bigger space. The key is to choose the right pieces to make use of the small space. Since this area of the house is usually exposed to the outdoor elements, one tip is to choose pieces that can actually withstand exposure to these elements. The usual elements are the heat and glare of the sun, rain, snow and the wind. Some of these areas are not actually without roofs but they are open, therefore exposing them to the elements just the same. Choosing hardy and sturdy pieces which were made to withstand exposure to the elements will ensure that they last long and can be used well enough without fear of them deteriorating or being damaged too quickly. Some of the patio furniture available for sale requires foam mattress cushions for it to be used comfortably. Most of these additions have pillowcases made from a sturdy fabric that can handle exposure to the elements. Some may not be made from this special fabric, which is why it is a good idea to check out what kind of fabric is being used for the cases for the cushions and mattresses.

When the weather is good, especially during the summer, people like taking their meals outside, and a patio table is definitely required for this. Patio tables may also be used for having some afternoon refreshments with a couple of neighbors. Some people can also play games on their patio tables - say, a few rounds of friendly bridge or poker.

The patio can be an attractive part of your house anyway, but with awnings added it can be turned into a huge outdoor room. With tasteful decorations, you get the feeling that your home has been extended out onto the patio, which gives you more options for entertaining.

Even if you are not serving food at the patio table, you have to be sure that it looks nice at all times. A vase of fresh flowers always works in livening up an empty table.

Within a very short time, I realized that I couldn’t seat enough people for my needs. I could use two other chairs that I purchased with the set, but how could I get them around this table? I ended up making a round top to go over the octagon table top that would give me the expansion I needed. Now, I have to use a table cloth to make the round top work. While this solution has worked out OK, but, I should have thought through this further.

As an example, I have a screened porch attached to my home where the hot tub, grille and dining takes place. I also have a gazebo and dock down at the lake where I also entertain and need seating and table options there as well. My biggest challenge was how to balance the two areas. While the two areas are far enough apart that the patio furniture would not have to match, I did want some continuity so that there was not a stark difference between the two areas but yet, I didn’t want them to be identical.
