How to Select Patio Furniture

It’s getting warmer out and many people are beginning to think of summer activities and outdoor entertainment. Are you looking into your options for Patio Furniture Portsmouth? Having an idea of the ultimate goal for your outdoor space will help you in selecting the right furniture for your space. Here are a few tips to help you select your patio furniture.

Determine your needs

Are you going to be serving dinner on the patio or will you be relaxing by the pool? You can buy anything from outdoor dining sets to lounge chairs to outdoor living rooms for whatever entertaining style you prefer. You will even have selections in the types of materials your furniture is made of, including wood, wicker, resin, and aluminum. Furniture frames and covers or cushions are available in many color choices. You can customize your outdoor space to be more formal, relaxing, or cool and casual.


It’s a good idea to check into the cleaning and care specifications of the furniture you are looking at. PVC style furniture can be cleaned with warm soapy water while other frames may need more thorough cleanings with non-abrasive cleaners or furniture polishes. Be sure to understand the manufacturer’s warranty, as some will not warranty outdoor wood furniture, or may have limited warranties. Additionally, it’s a good idea to check into whether or not the furniture you select will resist the weather you will typically see in your area. Some manufacturers have furniture that resists all outdoor weather conditions. When visiting a showroom, like East Coast Leisure, you can ask about these specifications in more detail.


A key ingredient for creating an inviting outdoor entertaining area is shade. If you don’t have a covered patio, consider an umbrella. Umbrellas come in various sizes, styles, and colors that will add a bit of extra comfort for you and your friends during the hot summer months. Adding an outdoor shade umbrella will make dining or relaxing much more enjoyable when you can escape the hot summer sun.

You might get the best benefit by visiting a local showroom, like East Coast Leisure, to explore your many options.
