Transforming Your Outdoor Living Space
As the winter weather begins to break, it’s common for most of us to look at our property and imagine enhancing out outdoor living spaces. Many yards on Long Island and throughout the Northeast have incredible untapped potential. Most homeowners, however, have no idea where to start.
Will planting a few flowers do the trick? How about buying a shiny new barbecue? We come up with many ideas, sometimes even elaborate masonry projects. While beautiful stonework is a way to transform your backyard, have you ever considered the impact of quality outdoor furniture?
Every Spring, thousands flock to the local box store, perusing the endless supply of drab plastic table and chair sets, where the only creativity is which umbrella color to choose. At the end of the day, so many of us walk away with a result that is less than exciting. This should not be the case! There are beautiful outdoor furniture options out there that will not break the bank. You just have to know where to look and what is available to you.
Types of Outdoor Furniture | Consider your space
The key to choosing the right outdoor furniture is knowing the space you are trying to fill and the purpose of that area. Do you have a large deck or patio where you would like to entertain? Is there a fire pit table that family and friends will gather around? If not, should there be? Perhaps you are looking for a quiet place to read a book and sip a drink or need proper seating for relaxing Saturdays.
Anyone can open a folding chair, but the right outdoor furniture can bring the comfort of your living room poolside! remember, the goal is not just to find a place to sit! It’s about transforming your outdoor space!
Here are some types of outdoor furniture Long Island homeowners should consider.
- Outdoor Dining Sets
- Deep Seating & Conversation Spaces
– Adirondack Chairs
– Beach Chairs
– Wicker Chairs
- Bar tops and High top Tables
- Fire Pit Tables
Want to know where to buy outdoor furniture Long Island? Here's a few options...
As Long Islanders, we are extremely demanding when it comes to quality. We have the best beaches, the best pizza, and the best accents in the world! Remarkably, outdoor furniture is an easy place to make compromises. It’s just a table and chair set right? It’s interesting that we don’t think about our dining room table this way. Enjoying outdoor furniture can span spring, summer, and parts of fall. That’s a potential 75% of our year. Do you enjoy being outside? Then the right outdoor furniture is an investment.
Here are a few places for outdoor furniture Long Island residents can go to look at what’s available in the market.
Big Box Stores & Discount Clubs
If you go to your local big box store or discount club, what you’ll find is outdoor furniture that’s mass produced in sets that are either overpriced for the quality or suspiciously cheap. Either of those 2 are never a good thing.
At these large stores (we won’t name names), God forbid you have a question. With all due respect, the person who works in plumbing or stocks the auto parts section probably isn’t too knowledgable in outdoor furniture. They can’t really guide you on the right patio dining set or deep seating arrangement. These very nice people may have never even set up a backyard living space before.
Pros buying outdoor furniture in Long Island big box stores
- You can do the rest of your shopping at the same time.
- Lower prices (maybe)
- Staff generally not specialized
- Limited selection
- Unknown quality for the price
Online Shopping for Outdoor Patio Furniture
It’s no secret that more people are shopping on the web than ever before. While there is perceived convenience in shopping for outdoor furniture online, there are also a lot of variables. How do you know what you are going to get?
For one, there is nothing like experiencing the furniture you are going to buy. It’s one thing to look at pictures, but another to sit on a chair or at the table.
Pros of buying outdoor furniture online
- Convenience of shopping for items at home
Cons buying outdoor furniture online
- No human professional guidance
- Unable to experience the furniture before purchase
Outdoor Patio Furniture Outlet Stores
There are specialized outdoor furniture stores Long Island can check out. They are usually bunched together on main roads with big signs like “HUGE SALES EVENT” and “SEASON”S CLEARANCE!”. These are typically gimmicks to get you to walk in the door.
The problem is, when you walk in, it’s similar to a used car lot. Commissioned sales people are pushy, inventory is limited. and that is a recipe to walking away unsatisfied. Don’t get pressured into buying something you don’t love.
So want to know where to buy outdoor furniture Long Island? Now there is a family owned showroom where finding you exactly what you need is far more important to just “making the sale”.
Pros of buying from an outdoor patio furniture outlet store
- You may find something you like… maybe
Cons buying outdoor furniture from an outlet store
