Best Patio Furniture for Your Yard

Patio furniture lets you turn your outdoor space into an extension of your living room. With a wide variety of colors and styles to choose from, the right patio furniture will provide long-lasting enjoyment and a place to entertain comfortably when great weather beckons.   

The easiest way to purchase patio furniture is to buy in sets. A patio set will come in all kinds of styles and sizes from a simple bistro set with two chairs and a coordinating table, all the way up to a dining set with seating for six or eight. The advantage of buying in sets is that you can easily outfit an entire patio for one price and all the furniture will be perfectly matched. However, you are limited to a single style; if you tend toward a more eclectic style, purchasing a set as your sole outdoor decor may be less satisfying.


Draw out a layout of your outdoor living space on grid paper and experiment with styles and placements so you can get the best combination to serve your needs.


Do you have a smaller balcony that can only hold a chat set? Or does your backyard have space for entertaining?


Are you planning to host a lot of outdoor parties on the patio? Do you need versatile patio furniture like stackable chairs and tables for extra guests or are you looking for a larger comfortable set for relaxing?


With so many choices, it can be difficult to find the patio furniture that matches your home style and your lifestyle. Home Depot’s Choose Your Own Color program lets you customize a look of your very own by choosing the patio collection, color and fabric.
