Create an outdoor living space with patio seating sets

The latest in home planning and decor is all about outdoor living space. With the sluggish economy and housing market, the majority of people are staying in or looking for smaller homes with indoor/outdoor living space instead of buying larger homes or adding rooms. And research shows that spending time outdoors helps lower stress. When creating outdoor living spaces, focus on seating.

As further proof of the growing popularity of outdoor living spaces, a number of furniture manufacturers have started making patio seating, such as La-Z-Boy. So you can be certain that you'll find quality-made products on this website. You can find everything from three-piece to nine-piece sets. Outdoor furniture is so beautiful these days they'd even work for indoor decor, such as sunrooms. If you care about comfort, look for sets with thick, deep, over-sized cushions. Some sets even have lumbar pillows for extra comfort. Since it will be outdoors, all of the materials are weather-, rust- and UV ray-resistant, from the fabrics to the frames. There are a number of combinations to choose from as well. You can purchase a five-piece set that includes a loveseat, coffee table and two chairs to provide seating for four and space for beverages and snacks. Other options include a five-piece set that offers four chairs and a fire pit. Still another set provides two corner modules that can be used separately for two chairs or together to make a love seat, along with two chairs and an ottoman. Since we've grown accustomed to sectionals in our family rooms, patio furniture manufacturers have gotten wise, creating special sectionals for outside. Sectionals are popular choices now for outdoor seating.

Dine out

Purchase a table for the family to gather around for dinner and the weekends and you can take the idea of eating out to a whole new level. You can find anything from five- to 11-piece sets. For entertaining, you can choose a bar-height set. A bistro set is perfect for couples to sit at while enjoying coffee in the mornings. Just as when purchasing luggage, you usually get a better bargain when you purchase a set instead of individual pieces. The benefit of purchasing individual pieces, however, is that you can mix-and-match styles when you prefer a table from one set but the chairs from another.

Gliders and rockers

There's nothing like sitting under the stars at the end of the day, except for rocking or gliding while sitting under the stars. You can purchase wrought iron, wood or resin rockers and gliders. You can buy a double rocker or glider so you can snuggle with that special someone. Some rockers and gliders come paired with an end table. Styles vary, too. Whether you like a classic look, country, modern or retro, you'll find it. Some gliders and rockers come with padding. You can purchase cushions for those that don't. Swivel rockers are also available. Because outdoor living areas have grown in popularity, you will find more and more patio furniture options to choose from to suit your needs and style.
