When it’s summertime on the East Coast, New England outdoor spaces require furniture pieces to enjoy outside during those warmer months. Many are making their homes more appealing, creating more luxurious rooms to relax, or redesigning their existing enclaves. The furniture design specialists at Cardi’s can help you avoid outdoor furniture buying mistakes. 

How to Define Outdoor Living Spaces

To purchase the correct outdoor furniture pieces, it is essential to assess your outdoor space and understand the area where you will be placing the new furniture. Measure the dimensions of your space to get a sense of what pieces and sets will fit where. 

Next, brainstorm different options that look nice in your outdoor living area. Our five-piece pub set is perfect for relaxing outside with friends and family.  Are you planning for big summer meals and parties outside? Make room and have the whole family over with this seven-piece outdoor dining set, or call the neighbors over for card games and iced tea on this elegantly casual hideaway dining set

Choosing Appropriate Sectionals and Rocking Chairs for Small Spaces

When creating a suitable small outdoor living space with quality furniture, it’s always wise to think about how you would like to use your area and what features you would like when spending time outside. To furnish your outdoor space, you might first want to consider singular pieces, like outdoor rocking chairs and side tables. Other items like our cocktail table, loveseat, and various chaise options can make your outdoor space feel comforting and relaxing. Think about how you would like to enjoy your summer and select the best pieces for your home. 

Fire Pit Sets and Furniture for a Medium-Sized Space

We recommend including a 4-piece fire pit set or a sliding top fire pit in your medium-sized outdoor space. You might also consider a 9-piece pub set. All of these options are perfect for medium-sized spaces. These sets maximize your outdoor space efficiency while adding attractive aesthetic and comfortable functionality for you and your guests to enjoy. 

Have an Expansive Outdoor Entertaining Space? 

With a vast outdoor space, selecting the best quality furniture is essential. We have several wonderful featured pieces, including the 5-piece fire pit alongside other seating options. 

Are you planning a movie night? A collection of our Adirondack chairs make the perfect audience seating options for backyard movie nights or stories around the campfire. You might also consider the 9-piece pub fire set, which will dazzle and warm guests, or the 7-piece dinette set for summertime grill nights. 

Remember The “Sit Test” and Don’t Forget Function

Many people are so excited when purchasing new furniture for their home that they forget to take the time to test out the furniture. It’s essential to make sure products are comfortable as well as attractive. If you’re looking for comfort, don’t skip the “sit test.” Come to one of our excellent locations to test your new outdoor furniture today

Pick the Right Outdoor Fabric for Rhode Island Summers 

Don’t make the same mistake as many people and accidentally buy furniture designed for use indoors based on color scheme and aesthetics. Fabrics and furniture pieces used outside need to be weatherproof from Spring through Fall. When selecting outdoor spaces, use fabrics intended for outdoor durability.
