5 Beautiful and Fun Outdoor Patio Furniture Ideas
Table of Contents
Last year (during the pandemic), we extended our patio and searched for the perfect outdoor patio furniture. Unfortunately, at the same time, millions of others while “homebound” did the same. Renovating outdoor and indoor space, so our search for patio furniture while successful, resulted in a long wait for it to arrive. With spring around the corner, my suggestion — start now!
Your patio is the heart of your outdoor living area. When the weather is warm and sunny, you’d be happy to spend all day lounging outside.
But when your patio furniture is uncomfortable and doesn’t function as well as it should, this area can become a wasted space, forlorn and abandoned.
Browse through our top 5 outdoor patio furniture ideas. These ideas will have you itching to revamp your sad patio into a cozy and inviting outdoor living space.
Day Beds & Patio Sets
A patio should be a functional space, with a grill, plenty of seating, and an umbrella for shade. Over and above function, it should also be a relaxing retreat for you and your family. A place to enjoy the outdoors in comfort.
This is where a daybed comes in handy. One of the most popular patio furniture ideas, daybeds provide you with a place to stretch out and lounge in style. Read a book, take a nap or watch the birds hop around your garden.
Daybeds can also double as a sofa for extra seating when you are entertaining guests. Many day beds come with a handy canopy to protect you from the weather, so you can enjoy this stylish patio furniture all year round.
No patio would be complete without a hammock. There’s no better way to stargaze than floating in the breeze, cocooned by soft fabric.
When choosing a hammock, opt for one with a lightweight sturdy frame, like this hammock stand. A stand means you can move your hammock freely, without relying on trees or poles for support. Move it into the sun to catch a tan, or next to the pool while your family swims.
Hammocks fold up nice and small, so you can easily store them inside during the rainy season. You can even take your hammock on a camping or picnic trip!
Swinging chairs appeal to the child inside all of us. Given the choice between a conventional chair and a swinging seat, most of us will choose the swinging seat every time. So why not choose one for your patio?
These whimsical chairs come in a variety of sizes. From single chairs to loveseats, to benches, you are bound to find a swinging seat to suit you.
There is nothing more relaxing than sitting on your patio sipping an ice-cold drink. When it’s time for a refill you don’t want to have to trudge all the way back inside, but you also don’t want an ugly icebox spoiling your view.
A hidden cooler will save the day. Coolers can be built-in to a variety of outdoor patio furniture items.
They can be hidden inside stools and side tables. They can even be submerged into the top of a picnic table. Simply lift the camouflaged lid and, voila! An ice-cold drink awaits!
Speaking of multi-functional furniture, a fire table will make your patio the talk of the town!
These nifty tables feature a functional tabletop with gas or propane-powered fire strip in the middle. The fire gives off a good amount of heat, turning your patio into the perfect hang-out spot all year round.
We added a metal fire table to our patio decor several years back and really love it, especially in the fall to take the chill out of the Colorado mountain air.
Use the table to eat food, sip wine, or play board games. Then turn on the fire grid and roast marshmallows and tell campfire stories.
There are a variety of fire table sizes and designs available, so you’ll have no trouble finding the perfect fit for your patio.
