The climate in Missouri doesn’t allow you to enjoy your patio furniture all year round, but most outdoor furniture can be used in the spring, summer and well into the fall. When it comes to choosing just the right furniture for your patio, balcony, lawn, deck or other outdoor space, you have lots of different options to choose from. Designing and decorating outdoor spaces has become just as popular as caring for indoor spaces. Homeowners are creating dramatic outdoor living spaces, and the lengths you go to will depend on your budget, personal tastes and lifestyle. As you prepare for your own furniture, consider functionality as well as aesthetics.
The greatest benefit of outdoor furniture is that you can have something beautiful that is also easy to use. Most furniture made for the yard is extra durable and designed to withstand extreme weather conditions. While you will want to cover it or bring it in when the snow and ice arrive, you can depend on it to be just fine during rain, heat and morning dew. Another benefit is that it helps you extend your living and entertaining space. If you enjoy grilling out, you don’t want to have to sit inside and eat. You want to enjoy your cookout where you made your food – outdoors. Most people enjoy picnics, barbeques, pool parties and late night chats around the fire pit on their patio or backyard furniture.
Functionality is extremely important. Before you start picking out colors and patterns, think about what you will use the furniture for and who will be sitting on it. If you have young children or pets, you want to make sure your furniture can handle paws, hair and sticky popsicle fingers. When you plan to host parties around the pool or formal events in the yard, you want to make sure your furniture provides comfort. Your guests will want to relax, so make it easy for them. Look for tables that seat a lot of people and if you want something more intimate, choose a cozy and romantic set of chairs with a smaller table between them.
Once you decide on how you expect your outdoor furniture to function, you can get to the fun part. Decide what kind of design or image you want to have. Some people match their outdoor furniture to what they have inside. Others like to adopt a particular theme. If you really love the beach, you might choose furniture that makes you feel like you have oceanfront property in St. Louis.
Looking for St. Louis outdoor furniture can be fun, especially if you have a good idea of what you want. If you don’t know what you want, you have a lot of different styles and pieces to consider. Remember to think about functionality first and fashion second. Once you know what you are looking for, you will be able to select exactly the right pieces for your outdoor space. It won’t be long before you begin enjoying the outdoors in a whole new way.
