Most people buy patio furniture based on the way it looks. And that is an important factor, but to get a set you’ll be happy with, we think it’s important to take into account a few other major considerations. How much space do you have for a set? An apartment deck calls for something entirely different from a capacious concrete patio. What type of set will harmonize with both the exterior and interior of your home? And how much maintenance are you willing to do on your table to keep it looking good? We go into greater detail on these and other topics in our buyer’s guide, which will help walk you through what to consider when picking outdoor furniture—even if our picks aren’t to your taste or are unavailable. Whether you want to splurge on a high-end teak set or invest in lounge chairs and sofas, we’ll give you guidelines for how to choose the best patio furniture for your outdoor space, with a focus on durability and design.
