Patio furniture has evolved through the ages in a way that these units are no longer bulky and space filling ones. Style and elegance are the keywords among designers of patio furniture these days. Any type of furniture that is used in a garden, lawn or even at a poolside is entitled to be called patio furniture. In such circumstances patio furniture consists of a table and a set of chairs to start. Additional units include a coffee table, chaise lounge and a love seat.
Additional furnishings and appliances can be used to enhance your patio. If you love cooking, you'll probably want more than just the typical backyard grill. You'll probably want something a bit more substantial, with more cooking space. If you have enough space on your patio, you can even install an entire kitchen, with cupboards, sink, and refrigerator. Most of us don't have the space for something that elaborate, but it can be done. For the most part, a good sized grill, either charcoal or gas, will make outdoor cooking a pleasant experience. If it gets cold in the evenings, you can add a patio heater or chimney to heat things up on cold evenings, and extend the use of your patio into the fall when the weather cools down. You can add a campfire atmosphere to your patio with a nice fire pit. You can find fire pits of many different materials and designs for your patio. Some of them burn wood, while others are gas powered.
While many of them are made differently, most come with a table, 4-8 chairs and possibly an umbrella. If you plan on setting up your patio outside, you'll want to be sure to get one that comes with an umbrella, as it will give you shade and help prevent sunburns during the summer. Also, think about how many people will be using it. If you have a large family, you'll want to be sure to get a table large enough to accommodate them. On the other hand, if it's just you and your significant other, a 4 chair patio set will work perfectly.
For lighting, you can use fairy lights or lamps. You want it to be gentle soft lighting, not enough to scare the night away. Installing too many lights will prevent you from fully appreciating the gently moonlight and stars. As always, stick to the keep it simple motto of creating pleasant patios. A roof or covering can be very welcome, especially for a patio that is a little way away from the main house. It will give you shelter so that you can sit outside on the hottest summer day, or enjoy the sounds of a summer rain storm without getting wet.
