Your new outdoor room won’t be complete until you’ve outfitted it with all the comforts of home. Here’s a simple guide to assist you in selecting the right furnishings for your new deck.
It may seem like stating the obvious, but ensure that every member of your family has a comfortable place to sit. If your deck has that one really great chair, then everyone will be constantly vying for it. Everyone gets a comfy chair—period.
To accommodate guests, invest in foldable, collapsible, or stackable seating to accommodate your overflow guests, and pillows and seat cushions to help ensure they’re comfortable.
If you ever lived in a small space, you quickly learned the value of furnishings that could pull double duty: couches that convert into beds, desks that can serve as dining tables, coffee tables with integral storage compartments, and so on. Use the same thinking for your deck. Invest in modular pieces that can be easily reconfigured on the fly into new arrangements will give your deck the flexibility to easily accommodate unexpected guests.

If you cleverly chose easy-care building materials when building your deck, then good for you; your low-maintenance deck will always be a place of rest and relaxation, just as it should be. It’s equally as important to choose furnishings made of all-weather materials.
Add color to your space with throw pillows, seat cushions, tablecloths, and other accessories. This allows you to easily and affordably update your deck to stay in tune with the changing seasons, and your evolving tastes.
Good-looking, well-made, comfortable deck furniture doesn’t have to cost a fortune, but you’d be wise to not cheap out on it either. Flimsily constructed pieces made from low-end materials will never provide the comfort your family needs, and will quickly reveal their shortcomings, forcing you to buy new all over again. Be smart, and do it right the first time.
