It is generally a good idea to have a patio table with a large umbrella to provide some shade. The table can be used during meals or as a place for people to set their drinks. When purchasing patio furniture, be sure that it is designed to be outside and resist the effects of constant exposure to wind, rain, sun, and heat. Although the better furniture may cost a little more, it will last longer and save you money in the long run. In addition to the table and chairs, it is a good idea to have a few other chairs or benches to give extra seating options.
