Patios - How To Choose The Right Patio Tables While Shopping 

Patio Tables

Patio tables usually lie at the center of most patio settings. This is where you, your family and your guests will dine and gather around for conversations. This makes patio tables one of the most important pieces of furniture you will need for your patio. 

You will find a huge selection of patio tables for any patio design. Patio tables are made from various materials such as plastic, aluminum, wicker, cedar, pine, teak, wrought iron and others. The material you choose as well as the design of your table should match the style of your patio.

A cedar log table will look awkward if the overall look of your patio and home is contemporary modern in style. If you are not sure what is out in the market today, then check your local furniture store or browse online. 

When shopping for patio tables, always consider the space you have available in your patio. Additionally, take into account how many people will be using the tables regularly.

You want a table that will seat all the members of your family but at the same time, it should just be the right size so as not cram the entire area. You probably will be adding other furniture so you want to have enough space for people to walk comfortably around the table.

Patio tables, like any furniture for outdoor use, should be durable against weather conditions especially if you have an open patio and you want to leave your furniture outside. Most wooden patio tables are treated to give them high resistance to weather and insect damage.

Teak wood patio tables are popular items. Another good option is wrought iron patio tables, which are expensive but offers elegant designs and are long lasting. Low-cost options are aluminum or plastic patio tables, which also offer good durability against most weather conditions. 

If you are looking for the most affordable patio tables, you can go for plastic patio tables. They are easy to clean and move. Although not as stylish as wrought iron or wooden patio tables, they come in various designs and colors for you to find the right table for your patio. While you would want the most savings, always make sure that the table or furniture you buy is not just economical but also of quality.  

Patio tables need to be both attractive and functional. A well-chosen patio table will enhance your patio visually. It should also serve its purpose effectively.  Choose your patio table carefully and make sure it will be something not only beautiful to look but useful as well.

Patios - Top Things You Need To Consider Before Shopping For Patio Covers

Patios - Top Things You Need To Consider Before Shopping For Patio Covers

Patio Covers

The patio is one of the most interesting places in your house. It adds dimension to your home, gives it an added depth. Naturally, you want the things you put in or on it to complement each other. 

If your patio was designed by an architect, the patio covers would have to be of appropriate quality and custom-made. However, if you built your patio all on your own, then your patio covers should be one that is durable and easily fixed. 

Keeping those two important qualities in mind, selecting patio covers is also about personal preference. After all, you built your patio. It follows that you should have a say on what style, quality, color, and size the patio cover is going to be. 

However, keep in mind that there are other factors to consider as well. So just because your neighbor’s patio cover looks good, it might not necessarily be the right one for your own patio. Consider the cost. It might be out of budget. Consider the style. It might not match the house layout and usage. 

Your neighbor’s patio cover may only be for general use, while you need yours to place a grill, a table and a few chairs, or a clothes hanger. Your neighbor’s patio may be used for entertainment purposes so the covers are snazzy and eye-catching. On the other hand, you may only use your patio as a hobby or recreation room, deserving a more subdued design for a patio cover. 

When choosing patio covers, do not go by just what is available. Instead, consult the opinion of friends and family. Magazines may also be of some help. They can give you some ideas on how you want your patio to look like. 

There are plenty of designs available. You can choose from colored awnings to striped ones, partial patio covers to patio umbrellas. There are also patio covers made of aluminum for longer-lasting shade and durability (Aluminum does not rust) and patio covers that are made of wood. Both offer you full protection against sun and rain and other adverse weather conditions.

There are patio covers that are lattice or dome-shaped; patio covers that are fashionable or traditional. You can choose whatever shape, basing your choice only on the d├ęcor and shape of the structure supporting the cover. 

Consider also how much shade you want. If you want partial cover, then patio umbrellas or awnings can provide shade in specific portions of your patio while leaving the rest of the area open-space. On the other hand, if you want full protection from the weather, then full covers are the way to go. If you choose the latter, dome-shaped canopy comes in clear and bronze tints.

Patios - How To Make The Right Choice When Choosing A Patio Door

Patio Door

When choosing a patio door, there is only one thing to keep in mind: It is not just a door. So it is important that you make the right choice. As to the question of what the right choice is, it depends on your definition of “right.” In other words, the whole exercise has everything to do with your personal preference.

You have a variety of patio door styles and sizes to choose from. And each one of them have their own set of advantages and disadvantages. From French to sliding glass doors to patio doors ranging in width from five to over twelve feet – it’s your choice that matters. 

But to nudge you in the right direction, here is a list of choices you have when looking for the right door for your patio:

  • Sliding Doors

Think of them as huge picture windows that you can walk through. The panes of glass are usually mounted in a frame that comes equipped with rollers. And that’s why they slide when you open them.

Sliding patio doors come in a variety of materials. Aluminum is, by far, the most common and also the least expensive. Because aluminum does not rust, sliding patio doors made of this material are only practical.

Another option you have for your sliding doors is vinyl. Characterized as low maintenance but energy efficient, vinyl doors have tough frames that are easily maintained. In fact, with regular maintenance, sliding patio doors made from vinyl could look new for years.

Wood, of course, will always be an option for sliding patio doors. They are the highest quality and offer the same natural aesthetic qualities as traditional wood doors. The only difference is that wood sliding doors offer a full view because of the large glass panes. But, as to be expected from high quality material, wood doors are also the most expensive of patio doors. 

A somewhat less expensive alternative you have to wood doors is wood clad doors. These patio doors are wooden doors and frames with a coating on its exterior surface. The coating could be made from vinyl, fiberglass, or aluminum, depending on the type of wood clad door. The result is a patio door that is protected from adverse weather conditions outside but still have the look and feel of real wood on the inside.

  • French Doors

French doors come in the same materials as sliding patio doors. But in addition to vinyl, wood, and aluminum, French doors may also be available in steel and fiberglass. 

French doors are set on frames and share the same characteristics of traditional entry doors. Some of them have either left or right handed in-swing or out-swing. However, you can also find French doors that swing both ways.

If you are thinking of sprucing up your patio, patio candles will definitely do the job and how! Their eye-catching and delightful candy colors and different, unique styles or designs certainly set them apart, easily making them the favorite pick among patio decors. 

Patio candles are always the sentimental choice because of their mystical allure. Their beauty stands out, luminous and mesmerizing in all their unabashed loveliness. Not content with being regarded as mere adornments, their flickering, mystifying flame creates a halo of warm, romantic light, rendering an almost surreal, magical quality to everything its illuminating glow touches, leaving in its wake a feeling of blissful peace as if one is in a dream from which he refuses to wake up. Who needs a glaring fluorescent bulb or a lampshade when patio candles are on hand to provide their soft, ethereal light. The heady combination of beauty, mysticism and romance is irresistible, luring one to yield body and soul to the dream-like, magical moment it creates.  What patio candles can bring out in one’s soul.

Scented candles are the best, their fragrance redolent of roses or jasmine, lavender, apple or citrus. They inundate the senses with a hedonistic pleasure that begs you to relax and simply surrender to your heightened emotions. This is indeed the ultimate in self-indulgence and pampering. This explains the endless fascination with candles.

This does not in any way demean or belittle the qualities of other candles which are equally lovely. There is a diversity of style and shape and material and being presented with an array of chances is a wonder and in itself, part of the excitement. We have floating candles, rose candles, bird candles, butterfly 

candles, birch, sculpture or color-changing candles, wax or glass hurricane candles, citronella oil candles which are insect-repellant. You will marvel at the creativity and artistry into the making of the candles which are proudly shown by each candle.

Adorn your outdoor living area with patio candles and dazzle your guests with their enchanting presence and exciting colors. Have a romantic evening at your patio surrounded by the warmth and the intoxicating scents of the candles and be bewitched by their mysterious colors. When one is in the mood for love, there is nothing like candles to provide the ideal backdrop for romance. They are the perfect combination. So, soften the mood and suffuse yourself with their light. Keep the love alive and the fire burning with patio candles.
