Everything You Need to Know Before Choosing Outdoor Furniture

Spring is almost here and summer is just around the corner. Whether you want to create a festive dining area where you can spend time with family or a sleek lounging daybed to sit out in the sun and read a book, buying your first outdoor furniture is almost as hard as deciding on your first house with a garden. Before you rush out to shop, take 5 minutes to learn everything you need to know before choosing outdoor furniture.

Best Months to Shop

Always bear in mind, the local climate should always be the primary factor to consider as it directly impacts the lifespan of outdoor furniture. Living on the West Coast of the United States, the weather is generally mild and sunny throughout the year. You can typically enjoy outdoor living year-round. Just be very careful when choosing the right base material.

On the other hand, the climate on the East Coast of the United States can vary greatly. If you live in the northern regions such as New York, Boston, or Chicago, where temperatures can drop below freezing, it may be best to hold off on purchasing plans until springtime. Shop from March to May. This allows enough time for two months overseas shipping.

Choosing the Right Material

Wood paired with cushions is a recommended classic choice. This combo is not only versatile in style and easily customizable, but it also provides comfort and durability.

Living in Phoenix, I learned firsthand that wicker outdoor lounge chairs may not be the best choice due to the hot and dry climate which can cause it to deteriorate quickly. The UV rays from the sun can cause wickers to become brittle and break, while the lack of moisture can cause them to become dry and crack over time. If given another chance, I would choose a wooden or aluminum alloy frame daybed for outdoor use in Phoenix, as these materials offer better durability and resistance to the harsh climate.

High-quality Rattan material keeps its color and gorgeous for its High-Density rattan. And its rattan could withstand harsh conditions of the outdoors, which are durable all-weather properties.

Maintenance and Care

High-quality patio sets will easily last 15 years or longer. Most metal, teak, cedar, and all-weather wicker pieces can stand up to whatever nature throws their way. To prolong its lifespan, furniture made of these forgiving materials requires only simple cleaning with mild soap from time to time.


While outdoor furniture can withstand harsh outdoor environments, indoor storage is preferable to protect it from extreme weather conditions like hurricanes and snowstorms. There have been cases of hurricanes blowing away aluminum patio tables. Adding a shed or deck boxes somewhere in your yard is good practise.

Please do remember to take care of cushions. We didn’t—a rookie mistake that led in the short term to soggy, heavy cushions that took forever to dry, and in the long term to mildew. Yuck.

Priority and Upgrade Gradually

It is difficult to have an exhaustive plan for outdoor set up. Remember, you don’t just need space for furniture to fit in, it's also important to have ample space to allow people to move around without feeling cramped. Don't forget that outdoor furniture can be rearranged later, setting priorities and further upgrade flows always work.


Begin with thinking about what's the major function of patio actually performing? Do you want your patio to serve as dining areas the next wake up morning? Or do you envision a peaceful reading book with comfy and welcoming patio seating tucked into your yard? Save your budget and search for Dual-Purpose patio furniture. Always start by getting a seat in your courtyard, let inspiration come naturally.
