Where to view furniture and accessories
Patio dining in your yard, on your balcony or in your garden can be a fresh and fun way to entertain family, friends and guests. Garden centres and online patio sites have many different types of accessory, ornament and furniture for patio dining and we have listed some ideas below that you may wish to include in your patio, garden, balcony or on your decking. The best place to look and test patio furniture sets and other patio products would probably be your local garden centre or store. Sizes, styles and design vary and if you are restricted by space, money or simply want to see how hard or soft a cushion is for your back and seat, a quick visit may prove very useful. However, unless they have a sale or promotion on you may often be able to bag yourself a bargain on line so always conduct a thorough search before parting with your money in store.
Matching colours, decor and material
Many homes often have a certain decor, style or theme and there's no reason why this cannot be extended onto the patio and into the yard. You may have wrought iron or wooden furniture and want to achieve the same look outdoors - and it shouldn't be too difficult with so many companies selling garden and patio furniture. You will be able to find patio dining sets in wicker, aluminium, wood, stainless steel, stone, wrought iron and plastic. Colour schemes can often be continued through fabrics on cushions or patterns on place mats and table covers. You can also paint or spray some furniture - certainly those made from untreated wood. As well as colour and decor, you'll also want to ensure that any furniture you do choose is robust and durable. Any complicated mechanisms and fixings on furniture should come with a lengthy guarantee and from a reliable company that you're confident in. You want your patio furniture to last as well as look good! Ensuring that any materials and fabrics are weather proof is also a good idea - certainly if you plan to leave the patio dining furniture outside.
Furniture and accessories
The size of your patio and outdoor area will determine how much or how little patio dining furniture and accessories you can have. If you only have a small space you may want to consider bistro sets or small benches. For more expansive spaces, the options are endless - with plenty of patio dining tables, chairs, seats, swings, loungers, stools, cushions and custom sets available. With more spacious areas you will also be able to consider including decorations and accessories such as patio heaters, umbrellas, gazebos, art, pictures, sculptures, and an overhead structure such as an awning or patio canopy. These additions may be expensive but will then allow you to dine on the patio come rain or shine and the heaters will allow you to comfortably entertain guests on colder evenings. Permanent structures for providing overhead protection when dining, could also include atmospheric lighting or electrical fans (for those hot days and nights), depending on your climate.
Dining table ware and decorations
Decorating your patio tables with dining ware and unique ornaments will make the dullest spaces interesting and appealing. There are huge ranges of outdoor place mats, table covers, dishes, plates, bowls, cutlery, mugs and glasses available for buying. Dining table accessories such as lights, candles, art and sculptures can personify an area and leave a lasting impression. Surrounding walls or structures can be decorated with paintings and canvases or you could position statues and containers around the dining area for patio trees, small shrubs and colourful and scented plants and flowers. You will be able to find all types dining sets, made from china, glass, wood and plastic online or at your garden centre. If you have children or entertain friends with kids then you may want to look for table ware that's difficult to break, like plastic beakers and plates!
