My Absolute Favorite Patio Designs

Welcome back my friends! I spent the last post on how to save money when buying patio furniture. For this post I want to let you know what some of my favorite patio designs are and why I love them so much.

Before we get started I did want to take a minute to give a shout out to my friends blog Clarity Furniture. James is the blog owner and he regularly updates the blog with useful information on a wide variety of furniture related products. He does a great post on patio furniture that you should check out. Click that link above if you want to be taken to his blog. James is also happy to answer any furniture related questions you have so be sure to shoot him a message sometime.

So now lets get started. Please also remember to comment about which patio sets you likes best as well.

In this first patio set we have features here is set out on a porch surrounded by glass. It really is a beautiful setup. I love the look for the resin furniture. It is a dark color and really matches well with the other pieces in the room.

Our next set doesn't have a background but it is really some nice furniture pieces. I really like the color on these. They look to be made of a some kind of metal. These may benefit from some kind of cushion on them.

Our last featured set is a wonderful patio setup near a pool. I love the choice to use black wicker chairs near the poolside. The black wicker chairs also go quite well with the wooden deck.

I will be going over another few sets of furniture in a future post so check back. If there are any sets you would like to see featured here send me the pictures, I would love to see them! Until next time take care and see you soon.

Saving Money On Patio Furniture

Hello readers! Glad you came back to visit my blog again. If this is your first visit here I would like to wholeheartedly welcome you! I encourage you to bookmark my blog or subscribe to my RSS feed or twitter page. If you are wondering who I am I'm Patty and this is my blog. You are always welcome here and I would love for you to contact me with any of your furniture related ideas or questions. You can also learn more about me on my about Patty page found here.

Today we will be going over some money saving ideas for when you buy patio furniture. Now you may not have patio furniture on your mind right now as it is winter time in most of the world, but when it comes to saving money a good time to buy is off season. If you buy in fall you will be able to save a considerable amount of money on patio and porch related furniture. This is simply because most stores are trying to get rid of their spring and summer furniture in favor of winter items. This means big savings for you the consumer. Although it is winter now you may still be able to find some great deals on patio furniture. You should make sure you don't wait too long because once winter winds down the prices for patio furniture will normalize.

Buying Patio Furniture Used

Why not buy used? Some people, including some of my friends, do not like to buy anything used. When it comes to saving money, however, buying used can make a real difference in the weight of your wallet.

Used furniture can be most easily found at thrift stores or salvation army stores in your area. They don't always have nice pieces and when they do they tend to disappear rather quickly. If you plan to buy from one of these stores make certain you stop in frequently so you don't miss out on a truly nicepiece of patio furniture.
