Isn’t it exciting? Visit the stores and choose patio furniture for you brand new patio. With the flood of offers and many different alternatives you can choose between, this mission can become really frustrating. It is hard enough to decide which style would suit you most, and after making that hard decision, you have to study the particular style very well to make a perfect match. Making a perfect match in sense of matching the patio floors with the material of the furniture, the material of the furniture with cushions and the last but not least matching the table cloth with the plates and cutlery. You can visit many internet stores to get the feeling of what exactly you really want. The most terrible thing is when you come for a visit and you can see a million different styles in just one space. Nothing matches with anything. In one way you feel like you are on southern plantation with all the wicker sets being on the terrace. On the other hand there are modern minimalist cushions combined with Victorian cutlery and everything feels like a big mess. If you decide to go with the French country you must follow it all the way until the end. No exceptions to the rule. Of course you can’t go with the French country, if the whole house is built and furnished in the modern style.
So the main rule is to try to follow one style all the way. The new trends also show that you can combine styles but you have to follow one main style. Let’s say you are into modern furniture. You can decorate it with modern patio dining sets and then put one small detail that is not really modern. This is also an option. Speaking of the material of the furniture used outside, it depends a lot on how your patio is designed. If you have a patio which is covered with roof, your choice of patio dining sets is not that hard, because you can easily use all sorts of materials, wicker, wood, teak, metal, plastic. But if your patio is not covered you have to consider weather influence on materials.
So the best choice would be teak patio dining sets, or metal furniture. There is no way to go with wicker, it could happen that you will have to buy a new set for next season. Wicker patio dining sets are not weather resistant in most cases. You can of course always choose wicker made of plastic, that means an artificial one, but the quality of sitting on this material is another story. This material does not breath, so it can be really uncomfortable when there is a summer heat.
As already said there are many different choices on the market. The best would be to focus on what you want and then combine this with comfort and style.
