Coastal backyard with a great patio and view!With the amazing weather that we’ve had lately, it’s no surprise that we want to be outside. A good way to get out and enjoy the weather is heading to the patio or backyard. We love lounging and taking in a sunset in comfort of our own space. And we think that you should too! That’s why today’s post is all about helping you get your outdoor furniture set up and ready for you to enjoy! We think that there are 3 things everyone should look for in outdoor furniture, keep reading to find out!

Size

The first thing you should take into account is size. Not only should you think about the size of your potential furniture, but you should also keep in mind the size of the space you have to decorate in. There’s a ton of great furniture pieces out there, but if they don’t fit there’s no point. Make sure you know your measurements so you can get furniture that fits and give yourself plenty of room to enjoy it!

Function

A question you really need to ask yourself is, “What am I going to use my furniture for?” Is it going to be used for solo sunset gazing or are you going to want to have a nice family dinner outside? The furniture you invest in can serve more than one function. A comfy chair can not only be a nice place to plant your tush when you’re sun bathing, but it can also provide great comfort when you’re serving Grandma’s famous apple pie!

Materials

This one is crucial! Since outdoor furniture is, well, outside, you’re definitely going to want furniture that’s going to last. Look for materials that can stand the elements of weather such metals or durable woods, like teak, to name a couple. Choosing the right materials will make all the difference in the life span of your furniture. Investing in good outdoor cushions will also provide comfort and style!

Swings are a great way to just relax and enjoy being outside. Since they typically need to be mounted to a sturdy, overhead structure, you will have the much needed shade to help maximize those enjoyable summer days.

When it comes to swing options you have many choices. Go for a classic swinging bench with comfy pillow tops, a cozy day bed style would offer endless napping opportunities and you can even opt for individual chair swings which are perfect for limited spaces.

1. Dinnerware

There’s no need for extra fancy dishes and utensils, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be cute! Heading outside for a little dinner can easily get messy and the last thing you want or need are broken plates or cups – leave the glass and porcelain inside. Find cute melamine plates and acrylic cups for the perfect outdoor dining experience!

:: 3 Quick Tips To Spring Your Patio Back To Life ::

Tuesday Tips

Kick back with the pup on this cozy coastal patioSpring is right around the corner and it’s been heating up here in Southern California! The last couple of days have been nice and hopefully it’s been the same for your area as well. Looks like a quick day of rain, but then we’re  back to the good weather!

Not sure about you, but we’re all ready to be outside in the sun. When the time comes, we want to maximize our patio with as much comfort and style as we can. That’s why we have 3 quick tips for your spring patio! Get your patio ready for the weather and sun with these tips!

1. Use Colors.

Don’t be afraid to use a little color outside! Sure the spring flowers show bring lots of color, but do the flowers match your interior’s color palette? Or do you want the outside to start a fresh, new palette for your patio space! There’s no need to shy away from colors! Let the hues jump out and shine like they’re meant to in spring!

2. Use Different Types of Materials.

The tip’s title pretty much says it all. Don’t limit yourself to only one type of material on your patio. There are a ton of natural materials that work great outdoors and even plenty of ‘indoor’ materials that work well outside in the weather. They just might need to be pulled in from time to time.

3. Use Plants & Flowers.

This one is a no brainer! Bring some lush, green plants onto the patio space and really feel surrounded by the outdoors. Like we mentioned above, the flowers are strangers to color so use them to brighten up your patio! Make them the standout decor in your patio space!
