Home patio furniture comes in various types, from complete dining sets to full sized couches to umbrella covered tables. The type that you select will largely depend on the space available in your patio as well as the budget you have allotted for purchasing furniture. Although patio furniture can be budget-friendly, some bigger and more luxurious sets can cost as much as regular living room furniture. Styles can range from solid wood to wicker to iron, so it is up your personal taste as to what type of patio furniture that you will choose to purchase.
Outdoor sofas come in a range of styles and shapes. Some of them look just like the typical living room furniture, but you should also find pieces that are a little more flimsy. A love seat, outdoor sectional sofa and full sized couch are just a few of the options available if you are looking to buy outdoor furniture. Your choice of a patio sofa will depend on your price range, comfort level needs, and the number of people who will use it. There are sofas that are sold separately, while there are others that are part of an outdoor furniture set like the Mission 8-Piece Deep Seating Group by PolyWood.
Outdoor chairs can be regular chairs similar to dining table chairs. They can also be more comfortable and overstuffed like living room chairs. Alternatively, you can even purchase outdoor recliners, depending on what you are exactly looking for. You might be looking for a hammock or papasan chair, which are very popular styles of patio furniture. Club chairs are now common in patio furniture sets and are offer a more contemporary seating style. Indeed, the outdoor chair has come a long way since the webbed lawn chair was all that was available.
Lounge chairs bring to mind sunbathing next to the pool, and it is still what they are used for until today. However, outdoor lounge chairs are now available in many more styles and fabrics than the plastic ones of the past. These chairs can be made from wood, wicker, mesh or a number of other materials so they can match the décor of your other outdoor furniture pieces. Upholstered lounge chairs like the 2 Set Bel-Air Double Sun Lounger by Anderson Teak are a more elegant and costly option, but they are bound to be more comfortable.
Outdoor tables resemble a regular dining table, and can be purchased as part of a patio furniture set along with matching chairs. They can be made out of many materials, from wood to iron to plastic. Patio tables are available in various shapes and sizes as well, although the round ones are very common. They may or may not have a hole in the center for an umbrella to keep the sun away while you are eating and drinking on a sunny day. Smaller side tables like the Basilica Mosaic Side Table by Alfresco Home can be useful next to lounge chairs or couches to hold drinks and snacks.
