Consider the purpose

Always think about the purpose of your furniture first. It does no good to buy attractive furniture if you have no use for it. So think about whether you need a lounger, regular straight back chairs, or uniquely designed furniture. What will you use it for? Will you be sitting in it regularly? Is it comfortable for children, grandparents, or others?

Mix and match colors

Look around and see what colors are dominant on your patio. Is the wood a darker brown color, or is it more of a straw color? Just like in your house, you will want to accent your patio with furniture that is either similar or complementary to the shades around your home.

Outdoor Activities

Do you plan to grill out a lot on your patio? Swim? Read? Think about the things you will be doing and how furnature like a chaise lounge will go along nicely with your activities.
