So this doesn’t exactly fall under patio furniture, but we feel it’s a major part of any good patio. Having the right lighting for your patio can make a world of difference when you’re hosting friends and family, or just relaxing on your patio alone. That’s why we believe that the perfect lighting is an important part of our patio furniture design trends for 2019.
It’s 2019 and it is easier than ever to find LED lights that can be easily controlled by your phone. Being able to change the color and intensity of LED’s around your patio means that you’ll quickly have the proper lighting for any occasion.
If you don’t want to mess around with installing lights in and around your patio, there are a couple other easy solutions. Hanging string lights around your patio is a tried and true method of nailing the perfect vibe for your patio.
Many string lights are heavy duty and shatterproof so they’ll last through any bad weather. Additionally, most string lights will come with a remote allowing you to dim or the change the color of the lights. If you’re going to spend the money on lights, it’s best to get ones that give you the most bang for your buck.
LED floor lamps are a great way to add some light to your patio as well as a pop of color. There are some awesome options with fun, colorful bases that will bring some life to your patio set up.
A final option for finding the perfect lighting setup for your patio is to try out patio umbrellas with built-in LED lights. These patio umbrellas offer protection from the sun during the day and then can light up your space at night. You’ll be able to kick it on the patio and see what you’re doing, late into the night.
This is a trend that we started to see grow in popularity in 2018 and believe that in 2019, mixed material patio furniture will shine. You’ll see plenty of teak, wicker, cast iron, and aluminum patio furniture, and they all look great. What will make your outdoor living space stand out will be unique patio furniture pieces that utilize a mix of materials.
These patio furniture items will always be made of the best quality materials because it’s hard to get mixed materials just right. Some common examples you’ll see are wicker furniture with a cast aluminum frame, cast aluminum and cast iron with sling fabrics, teak and aluminum, etc.
Why is this trend becoming more popular? Mixing materials is a way to find high-quality patio furniture items and also stand out from the crowd. Having the same boring beige all plastic patio furniture might be cheap, but it’s not cool, interesting, or all that fun. When you’re hosting on your patio you want to impress and entertain. There are some great options that you can find in our collection.
Dual purpose furniture is becoming increasingly popular as a way to effectively deal with a lack of space. You’ll see dual purpose patio furniture utilized on balconies and smaller patios, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t use them for a larger space.
A common way to use this kind of patio furniture is for storing cushions during bad weather, but can also be utilized in many other space-saving capacities. You can even find some interesting DIY tutorials which show people turning storage space in furniture into coolers!
Dual purpose furniture fits in with the general theme of 2019, simple and functional. Overly extravagant patio furniture pieces look amazing and can be a cool novelty, but you have to consider how often you’ll use it to its full potential. Dual purpose options have a way of making you feel good as a buyer because you know you’re getting the most bang for your buck.
