If you’re ever lived in a space that isn’t your own- you probably know the struggle of making it FEEL like your own. Our patio was definitely one of those spots for us. I really enjoy sitting outside early in the morning to plan my day but we couldn’t find furniture that fit & was still really comfortable. Keep reading to see some of my favorite ideas!
Obviously the furniture is my favorite part. I picked this set out from LUXEDecor. Unfortunately this exact set is sold out- but here’s a link to a set that is actually really similar! I wanted something that took up a lot of the space because we don’t come out here for activities. I wanted lots of seating!
I chose this faux wicker because it is easy to clean but I think it looks nicer as well. Being in Vegas- NO metal please! Ever sat against metal by accident when it is 112 degrees? I did! Never again! These don’t hold too much heat which is really important. The cushions are also removable which is necessary out here in the desert with high winds. Plus I like having seats I can have int he sun & in the shade since the dogs HIGHLY enjoy musical chairs.
I’ve also become accustomed to wanting a table. My prior option was really small- this larger table is perfect. It actually comes with a glass top but we opted to store it for now. Puppy. Glass. Yeah…we’ll hold off on that! I’ve actually purchased a bunch of outdoor-friendly plants as well so it gives me another reason to step outside & enjoy my space. So far our favorites are herbs in the shade & pepper plants which enjoy direct sunlight.
What do you have set up on your patio? Any non-permanent fixes to your outdoor rental space? What do you look for in your furniture outdoors?
