How to Make the Most of Your Patio This Season

Being stuck inside all winter can make anyone long for warmer days. Maybe you're dreaming of lounging on the patio with family and friends—the smell of delicious food on the grill; the warmth of sunlight on your face mingling with the cool feel of that drink in your hand; the laughter of the people you love most, finally together again.

Thankfully, spring is here, with summer on the horizon. Will you be ready to make the most of your patio?

Your Patio is an Extension of Your Home

One trend that isn't going anywhere soon is making your outdoor space feel like an extension of your indoor space. We've learned how important the different parts of our home are, especially over the past year, when dining tables doubled as office spaces and classrooms! For many of us, our backyard became an oasis, a little area of escape when the lockdown became too much.

This year, we can continue this trend by maximizing our outdoor space and enjoying it more than ever. Picture sunny weekends with family gathered around the table, enjoying a barbecue feast. Or Sunday naps in the great outdoors on a comfy sectional can be a great way to spend the afternoon. Before the weather gets too warm you can still enjoy your patio with a new firepit that is ready to go with the push of a button.

Celebrate the coming season and future gatherings with family and friends by treating yourself to new patio furniture! At Weekends Only, we have options in every style, for any space, to fit every budget. Here are a few of our tips for really making use of your patio this year.

Begin with Quality Patio Dining Furniture

There's nothing better than al fresco dining with family and friends around the table. At Weekends Only, we offer a wide selection of dining sets made to host the whole family and guests. From smaller 3 piece sets with 2 chairs and a table, perfect for a small balcony, to 6 or 7 piece dining sets designed for larger families, we can accommodate your lifestyle. Some of our favorites include durable metal designs and cushioned seating, all for prices that will keep you smiling all season long.

Consider our Long Beach Banquette, which includes a sectional, a lounge chair, a polywood dining table, and a new nesting bench for when you want to invite more friends around the table! The durable, water resistant furniture and cute accent pillows make this set one of our best sellers.

If you prefer a more rustic style, our Farmhouse set may be the perfect fit for your family. This six piece set features a farmhouse-style bench, chairs that are as fashionable as they are durable, and an umbrella hole built into the large table. While it looks like real wood, the Farmhouse set is actually made of durable aluminum, so your family can enjoy it for years to come.

We're also excited to offer this bar height dining set from our Macon Patio collection! The round table and comfortable swivel chairs in breathable material are just the right size for a smaller patio or balcony. This can also be a welcome addition to an outdoor bar space as well, adding more seating to your Tiki Bar! 

 Patio Seating Should Add Comfort and Style to Your Outdoor Space

Even if you don't want a complete dining set, you can still enjoy comfy conversation areas in your outdoor space. After all, there's nothing like leaning back and relaxing in a warm breeze or gossiping around the fire pit with your best friends.

One of our popular lounge options is our Venice Patio set. Talk about convenience: this set includes storage built in on both ends of the sectional and an ice cooler built into the ottoman. You don't even have to get up to grab a cold drink! 

Our Lamar set, with reclining options, and our Tortola give you swiveling furniture, great for parents who need to keep one eye on their children while they sit with friends. Both of these feature furniture that's fashionable, with multi-weave wicker construction, and comfortable, with dense seating cushions for long-lasting support. Weekends Only patio sets are durable and weather resistant, so you can kick back worry-free. 

Reflect Your Personal Style with Patio Accessories and Decor

Your patio isn't really yours until you add the colors and accents that reflect your personality and style. Weekends Only has you covered there, too!

When you add accents, be sure to choose pieces that are both functional and attractive. The better they look and feel, the more your family will choose to be outdoors. Add lighting, plants, rugs, and other decor to make your patio feel even more inviting.

Unique seating options, like our hanging basket patio chair and double lounger daybed, can make your patio THE place to be! Swing in the summer breeze with a good book in our basket chair.

Our Double Lounger Patio Daybed Recliner, with pop-out tables, brings the comfort of a recliner with the durability of all of our outdoor furniture offerings. With solid construction, these pieces will give you style and comfort for years.

But if outdoor naps are in your future, don't forget to invest in a patio umbrella! In the heat of summer, that little bit of shade will be a life-saver. We have several options in different styles and colors.

Of course, hot and sunny days can give way to cool summer nights. What could be better after a day in the sun than a plate full of s’mores, a group of friends, and fire to gather around? No firepit? No problem! There's no need to be jealous of your neighbor's set up. We offer table-top fire pit sets -- even a bar height option -- that bring the warmth and ambience of a late-night campfire to you.
