Planning for Patio Season


With summer here and in all it's glory, it’s time to shape that backyard into your outdoor living space. Transform your backyard into a functional and stylish room that can feel like a getaway escape with great outdoor furniture.

Whether you are entertaining often or seeking solitude consider the pieces you will need.

If you are cramped for space, think about surfaces that serve multiple purposes such as a hinged bench which offers a place to sit but also serves as a storage unit for cushions or other backyard items.  Look for sturdy frames that are waterproof, rustproof and fade resistant with comfortable cushions. A pivoting umbrella can offer a shady place when needed as well as a nice pop of colour.

Invest the time in sourcing furniture, or hire a professional to do so.
