Metal patio furniture is often a more economical choice compared to hard wood type especially for people who want the stability of wood but wouldn`t want to spend too much. Metal furniture is also great for people that want furniture that has low maintenance costs because most metal furniture doesn`t require the kind of maintenance that wooden furniture does. There are three main types of metal patio furniture that you can purchase. They are wrought iron, aluminum and tubular metal.
Additional space outdoors can also be used for planting beautiful flowers, vegetables and other plants. You can even grow your own organic vegetables and enjoy harvest, as you rest assured that the healthy food you are eating contains absolutely no pesticides. At the same time, adding flowers will be sure to automatically boost the appeal of your home`s portico. While plants and trees are also ornamental in purpose, they also serve to ensure that fresh air circulates around your home regularly. Trees also provide shade and are especially helpful for those hot summer days. Also consider making use of outdoor furniture, to further beautify the space, and to immediately expand your home.

If you like to change the decor of your patio frequently and don`t want to have to buy new furniture every time then wicker & rattan patio furniture would be a good and decent choice for you. Wicker and rattan is the second most popular type of furniture that is made from natural materials. Both wicker and rattan furniture is durable, light weight and to a certain extent - flexible, making it great for patio furniture that needs to be brought indoors or moved frequently. Wicker is actually not a material by itself. Wicker is the end result of weaving rattan with other materials, usually bamboo slats, to make furniture. Rattan (originated from a Malay word - Rotan) is technically a tree, although it grows like a vine along the ground. They are usually found in the tropical regions of Africa, Asia and Australia. The rattan vines are cut and peeled, then steamed to make them pliable, and then they are used as rattan weaving materials. Rattan furniture can be made of stripes of Rattan that are woven together when the wood is wet. It can also be strips of Bamboo or other materials woven around straight rattan slats. Rattan easily accepts paints and stains like many other kinds of wood, so it is available in many colors and it can be worked into many styles.
The simplest thing you could do would be to decorate with candlesticks placed wherever they will fit (and not set anything on fire). That does lend a certain amount of warm elegance. But there is a lot more you could do too accessorizing your dining room for the exact feel that you are looking for. Families tend to feel well taken care of in a formally decorated dining room. A silver tea service placed strategically on a patterned doily on the dining table can do a lot for the kind of happily pretentious pleasure families sometimes like to have together. Sometimes, a beautiful metal punch bowl could bring a little old world charm in, too.
The most common surface for a patio are paving slabs. There are many different types of paving slab with a wide range of price tags. Steer clear of concrete slabs - they are often more expensive than natural stone, will fade over time and always end up looking fake. Indian Sandstone has dominated the paving slab market for years as it is cheap, natural, widely available and looks good. Cheaper Indian Sandstone is not always the bargain it appears as it is thinner, or poorer quality and more porous causing leaching of the minerals in the mortar onto the top surface of the stone. There are some inexpensive granite slabs currently available that make a wonderful surface only slightly more expensive than Indian Sandstone. The more expensive options are Travertine, York stone, Basalt, and Marble. Polished concrete makes a wonderful contemporary surface for the patio. Resin bound gravel is not only great for driveways, but makes an excellent contribution to the patio paving when combined with other materials for textural contrast.
A patio should never be designed in isolation without considering the rest of the garden. A well designed garden where all the elements are in scale with each other and the house will connect the house and garden. A balanced design that includes a patio or multiple patios will give the garden coherence and ensure that it is a pleasant, comfortable space in which to spend time.
Wooden patio furniture is very popular and lasting. In general, wooden patio furniture can stand up to the elements like very hot sun or summer storms pretty well. However, if you decide to use wooden patio furniture you should treat it with a water resistant coating to protect it from drying out in the sun or becoming damaged from being out in the rain. It is a good choice if you do a lot of entertaining because it`s very strong and rigid, thus can accommodate people of all different sizes. It`s also simple to change the look of wooden patio furniture with just a new coat of paint in the color of your choice. Good quality wooden patio furniture can be expensive but if you carry out regular maintenance of painting or protective coating on the wood every few years, the furniture will inevitably last for a long time.
