5 Tips for Choosing the Ideal Patio Furniture for Your Connecticut Patio


When you have high-quality, comfortable, beautiful outdoor furniture in Connecticut, your quality of life goes up dramatically. You will enjoy the warm weather better than ever before as you relax with loved ones, soak up the sun, and make memories to last a lifetime. However, with so many patio furniture options, it can be confusing trying to find the ideal set for your wants and needs. Here are the five steps you should follow to make sure that you enjoy your patio furniture for years to come.

1) Plan Ahead

Selecting patio furniture is just as much about comfort as it is about function. Before you begin looking for the furniture you want, you need to know what you are looking for. Do you have a porch that would be more usable with a comfortable wicker sofa or a pair of rocking chars? Do you have a pool that would be way more functional with sling chaise lounges along its edge? What about a balcony with an incredible view that would benefit greatly from a stylish bistro set? Once you have a list of the places you would love to have patio furniture, take pictures of these spaces so you can create a visual while shopping.

2) Inspect the Quality and Comfort

The best part about shopping for patio furniture at our Connecticut showroom is it gives you a change to immerse yourself in the cushions and really feel what it will be like to truly relax. Additionally, you can inspect the joints and welding, cushions, and finishes to make sure they are top quality and able to withstand rigorous use and weather.

3) Look for Easy Maintenance

Remember, the furniture is going to be stored outside, so easy maintenance is a must. We carry a huge assortment of top-quality patio furniture that is made out of materials that will withstand the elements beautifully, including: Teak, Ipe Wood, Sunbrella cushions, and recycled plastic furniture.

4) Make It Yours

While we do have a large amount of items in stock and ready for delivery, if you really want to find the perfect patio furniture, you should consider a custom order. Many of our collections can be customized to fit your unique taste and style. Select the frame design you like on the showroom, and then choose a fabric and finish from our stylebooks to get the patio furniture of your dreams.

5) Remember that Quality Counts

When you put so much time and planning into selecting the perfect patio furniture, the last thing you want is for it to be wrecked in a year or two. At Porch & Patio, we only carry patio furniture by the best brands in the industry. They are made out of high-quality materials and made by expert craftsmen to ensure that they will last you for many, many years.
