Spring is in the air, which means summer is right around the corner! Since it is unclear when you’ll be able to hit all your favorite outdoor venues, now is the time to finally transform your outdoor space into something you’ll never want to leave. Use Groupon Coupons and Home Depot coupons help you create your dream patio (and save some money at the same time).
The easiest way to upgrade your patio is with brand-new patio furniture. The first thing to do is decide how you want to use your space. Do you want to enjoy your morning coffee outdoors or need a place for a family meal? Once you know how you’ll use it, you can choose the right set for your space based on color, seating capacity, frame material, and more.
Note: Just like other home furnishings, outdoor furniture prices vary greatly depending on the material and size.
Typically buying in a set is better for your budget than buying pieces individually. Conversation sets are nice too because you can get a cohesive look for minimal effort. Many sets come with seating, side tables, cushions, and even decorative throw pillows. So all you have to do is set it up and enjoy.
The benefit of a small outdoor space is that outfitting it can be much more economical than a larger patio. A pair of conversation chairs or a bistro set, a small table with two chairs, would both be a great option. They’re made to be compact and comfortable, and are also less expensive than larger sets.
Probably the most versatile option for a patio, a dining set can be used for both cocktails and full meals outdoors. They are also the best option when it comes to price and the most seating capacity. The Home Depot has several dozen options that can seat six people for less than $800.
