Patio furniture comes in all sizes and shapes. There are sofas, settees, sun decks, hammocks, coffee tables and armchairs. Some are hard, some are soft. The hard ones could be made of concrete, marble, wrought iron, or aluminum. The others, especially those from the tropics, are made of wood, wicker or rattan. These are often covered with thick cushions in brightly colored printed fabric. If your patio leads to a pool, then you may need a cabana for changing clothes, tables and chairs for poolside refreshments, and sun decks.
Wooden patio furniture is very popular and lasting. In general, wooden patio furniture can stand up to the elements like very hot sun or summer storms pretty well. However, if you decide to use wooden patio furniture you should treat it with a water resistant coating to protect it from drying out in the sun or becoming damaged from being out in the rain. It is a good choice if you do a lot of entertaining because it's very strong and rigid, thus can accommodate people of all different sizes. It's also simple to change the look of wooden patio furniture with just a new coat of paint in the color of your choice. Good quality wooden patio furniture can be expensive but if you carry out regular maintenance of painting or protective coating on the wood every few years, the furniture will inevitably last for a long time.
If you have a large patio with plenty of room, you may want to consider getting a entire patio furniture set with multiple pieces. Sets may include chairs, coffee tables, sofas, lounges and/or sun beds. With so many components to choose from in the patio furniture realm, mixing and matching sets is easy. You and your guest will always feel comfortable moving from a chair to a lounge for example after a meal. Having a conversation around the table while drinking beverages, then getting cozy with your spouse on a sofa is another ideal situation. Remember, as long as you have the space you can maintain several different types of furniture. For smaller sized patios such as those included with condos and apartment complexes, you will have to compromise on what you get. Unless you have more space indoors to store extra patio furniture, you may want to get a table and chair set rather than sun beds and a sofa. Couples with no children will find a few chairs and a coffee table suits them just fine in most cases.
