Do you avoid spending time in your backyard because your old, outdated patio furniture makes you want to turn right back around and go inside? Here’s the thing, you could sit on your patio in a simple, cheap plastic lawn chair and watch the sun go down. But you won’t really want to. If you want to get outside and enjoy your backyard space you need to think outdoor living, not just lawn chair. So, if you’re ready to create an inspiring backyard that beckons you to come outside and relax, it’s time to trade in these 3 styles of hopelessly outdated furniture.
It’s Time to Move On From Flimsy, Plastic Furniture
It might have been okay when you were just starting out, but there is nothing about cheap, plastic furniture that invites you to come outside and enjoy your backyard. It’s flimsy, uncomfortable, and uninspiring. How can you settle in for a cozy dinner on the deck when these chairs make your back hurt?
Unless You’re Camping on the Patio, Skip the Camping Chairs
Camping chairs are more comfortable than hard, plastic furniture, but do a few camping chairs on the deck really make you want to get outside and enjoy the warm weather? They’re great for fishing, camping, or popping in the car for a seat at an outdoor event. But as your only furniture in the backyard? Uninspiring.
Upgrade From Mismatched, Worn-Out Furniture
Rusted, mildewed, torn, ugly … if any of these words apply to your outdoor furniture, it’s time for an upgrade. If your furniture’s like this, you’d probably rather stand up or pull out a camping chair than take a seat at your old, worn-out table and chairs. And that is not a way to enjoy your yard. So, what kind of furniture should you get?
Comfortable and Inviting is the Name of the Game
No matter what your style, from shabby-chic to ultra-modern, you can find great patio furniture that you love to kick back in, and that brings your personal style to your outdoor space. Before you pick your new outdoor furniture, ask yourself how you like to use your outdoor space? Dinner on the deck? A dining set is your best buy. Reading a book in the sunshine or lounging while you watch the kids splash in the pool? A comfy, cushy couch or sectional may be just the ticket. Looking for something that will keep you on the deck well into fall? A fire table is just what you need!
But don’t worry that creating an outdoor space you love has to mean investing in a lot of furniture. A couple of comfortable chairs or a simple, but inviting hammock could be all your backyard needs to be the backyard space you’ve been dreaming of!
