LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- It's shaping up to be a great weekend and a great chance to spend some time outside. If your backyard patio needs a little sprucing up, now is the time to do it. Are you not ready to get some new patio furniture so you can enjoy the loveliness going on outside?
My first suggestion to you is to not buy a whole matching set. Instead, try using a coffee table with some chairs that look nice.
We chose a table with mosaic tile, and the chairs we have are kind of low. There are four chairs, so we have a great conversation place, but what I love about it is that there are no cushions. If you can find furniture that looks comfortable and has no cushions, go for it. You won't have to worry about rain, and you can use it every single day without waiting for it to dry out.
Another set you could use would be one made out of aluminum. You don't have to worry about it fading, and it is heavy, which is great for a big space.
Introduce a concrete bench that doesn't match. Not only is it functional as a coffee table, but it also makes a great sitting area.
Finish up your look with a rug. The one we chose was one that was made to look like mosaic tile.
The bottom line is to mix and match things with great accessories, and you will have one beautiful patio, so you can enjoy your summer time.
