Five Things Your Backyard Patio Needs 

Outdoor Furniture 

A patio is only as good as the furniture you place on it. Without comfortable seating, you won’t want to spend much time on your patio. Think about how you want to use your patio. Do you envision relaxing evenings reading a good book or do you want to host friends and family for dinner parties? Depending on your needs, search for the right couches, chairs, tables, and other furniture that will meet your needs. 


Add a personal touch to your patio by finding the perfect rugs, lanterns, pillows, and signs to highlight your taste. Do you want to create a space that is bright and vibrant or neutral and calming? Additional decor will ensure you create the vibe you want. Friends and family will be wowed by the cozy and comfortable setting you’ve created to enjoy an evening of laughter and fun. 


In case you’ve missed it: string lights are in. Everyone loves the soft glow and relaxing effect that string lights give a space. Outdoor lighting is an essential part of creating a cozy patio. From old-school Edison string lights to Christmas twinkle lights, find the lights you enjoy most and string them around your patio for the ultimate lighting effect.  


Nothing says a summer evening outside better than a firepit. From keeping you warm to roasting marshmallows, a firepit is the perfect addition to any patio. 


Whether you want to plant shrubs and trees around your patio or strategically place potted flowers and plants on tables and plant stands, add some extra color and life to your outdoor space with your favorite outdoor plants.
