1. It gives you a chance to get away from the household stressors..
The stress of a household can get the best of people, which can lead to divorce or alcohol abuse. Sometimes a simple break from the norm could have solved the problem. Having easily accessible patio furniture is priceless during those times when you feel like kicking the dog or strangling your child.
2. Patio furniture adds another dimension, or even a 'room' to your house.
If you use your patio furniture enough, that means going outside and utilizing it more than 2 times a week, you could legitimately consider this portion of your property another part of your living space without sounding like a nutjob trying to justify a bad purchase. Mix in a BBQ, some candles or a fire pit and it won’t be hard to convince anyone of how peaceful your dwelling is.
3. Patio furniture is inexpensive and easy to maintain.
You'll find that most patio furniture is relatively inexpensive, considering how much you'll probably use it. Think about the treadmill you never use, but talked yourself into buying it anyways. Patio furniture is probably comparable in price, but much more attractive than handcuffing yourself to the treadmill for the next hour. And most patio cushions are waterproof, making clean-up a breeze! There's a tone of different types of outdoor furniture including wicker, rattan, teak, cast aluminum and other materials. Often you can find them for sale, on discount or just downright cheap and with covers included!
4. Some people prefer sitting or may even have to sit down after a long period of time.
You never know who might stop by for dinner and if you'd like to enjoy the weather, but 85 year old Fracine's knees might give out if you make her stand longer than 5 minutes; you can't win. Patio furniture lets everyone gather around the patio table and talk some 'Bridge' or Pinochle.
5. Patio furniture makes people feel comfortable and gives your place a welcoming feel.
The opportunity to sit down is always nice, whether you’re at the doctor’s office of your neighbor’s backyard. Having some nice patio chairs at your guests’ disposal is a priceless way to subtly make them feel welcome.
6. It's a different way to express your creative side of decorating.
Most of the time, people try their hand at decorating when they purchase their first home. The guys usually stick to exterior and the gals usually stick to the interior side of things. Patio furniture is a great combination of both interior and exterior decorating that both the man and woman of the house can take part in.
7. You can enjoy the yard you never thought you'd use.
Everyone loves having a big yard for the dogs (future if you don’t move in with one) or kids to run around in, but most of the time the backyard moves to the backburner as people maintain their hectic schedules. Patio furniture is a nice way to stay home, but be outside.
8. If you have animals, patio furniture is priceless.
Let’s face it : most people don’t spend enough time with their pets; I know I don’t (that’s another story). However, if you own a pet you shouldn’t neglect where they were meant to be; outside. Dogs like to run and be active and while you dread slipping on your slippers and hooking them on a leash, you could easily read the paper, finish up work or even eat dinner on your patio table as your mutts run free. They are thanking you, you just can’t hear them.
9 You can easily get to know your neighbors if you are more accessible.
Sometimes people have trouble meeting and getting along with their neighbors (MN nice?), but sometimes it’s just because they’ve never spoke. A welcoming patio furniture set can set the stage for a pleasant interaction better than asking for butter.
10. People spend too much time in doors as it is; get outside!
We all know that kids spend too much time playing video games and adults spend too much time watching TV. Believe it or not, but patio chair cushions are comfy and sitting outside on a cool summer night is one of the best feelings in world. Stop with the Grey’s Anatomy reruns, stop with the online gaming and invite some people over to enjoy your patio furniture.
