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.
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.
Iron patio furniture used to be very popular because of its durability. Many traditional furniture pieces are made from iron and they last for decades with little or no maintenance. Very little needs to be done to the furniture. Only minimal dusting and cleaning is required. However, iron furniture is giving way to other materials due to cost issues and a faster pace of life.
