What better place to relax during hot summer days than your deck or patio? Sipping cold lemonade in the shade, eating fresh fruits, devouring homemade ice cream… is there anywhere else you’d rather be?
Well, seeing how you’re going to be spending so much time there, we’ve come up with some fantastic deck furniture ideas to take that comfy experience to a whole new level.
From benches to corner lounges, we cover it all. So let’s not waste any more time and get started!
Relaxing Porch Hammock
Decorating a porch is no easy task. If the furniture and details don’t match, your hard-worked front yard landscaping could be all for nothing. Luckily, there’s a piece of furniture that goes well with almost any deck — a hammock.
This simple yet effective piece will do wonders for your porch, as you can see from the photo above. You can match it with your porch bench, or better yet, get some matching cushions for that extra comfort and flair.
And once you’re done cultivating your garden, you can just sit back, relax and take a well-earned break on your lovely new deck hammock… Zzz.
Hip Pool Deck Furniture
If you have a pool in your backyard, chances are you want some cool furniture to go along with it.
Well, what better way to make your pool deck stand out than by adding some wonderfully crafted pool lounge chairs. The ones in the picture have a rustic, wooden feel to them, but you can go with almost any material and color so long as it matches the deck floor.
You can also style them any way you want by simply adding some hip towels, coverings, etc., to set a theme or to add some more life to your pool deck.
One-of-a-Kind Scandinavian Chair
Scandinavian design is famous for its slick, modern vibes; what better way to style your deck!
For example, you can get some modern deck furniture like this unusually stylish chair that acts both as decor and a place to relax. Couple that with a few other unique pieces and you’ve got yourself a part-time meditation zone and part-time art gallery.
Hosting a large group of people can be an issue. You might have to pull out some mismatching living room chairs or even have people stand on their own two feet, and that’s not comfortable at all!
Though, you know what is comfy — benches!
Namely, benches are a great way to get the whole tribe together while making everyone nice and cozy. Best of all, you can even make some yourself if you’re a DIY enthusiast like us.
We recommend matching them with a neat table or two and creating a separate outside dining area.
Speaking of which…
BBQ Dining Set
Looking for some cool patio furniture ideas for a deck where you can enjoy a meal with friends and family? Well, you’re in luck! This outdoor dining set brings everything to the table (pun intended).
There’s plenty of room to go around and you can even add your own chairs if you don’t like the full set. For instance, you can pick a bold color for your chairs like in our photo to complement the beautiful round wicker dining table. Add a barbecue grill and you got yourself a party!
Hanging Egg Chair
Not only is a hanging egg chair great fun for the kids, but it’s also a neat little statement piece that will give your deck a lot of character. Cherry on top, it will go well with the rest of your covered deck furniture.
Simply hang it on your porch and add a few cute pillows for extra comfort. And once the kids aren’t looking, you can let the inner child have a swing at it, too!
Do you need furniture for your modern pergola but don’t want to splurge on it? Then look no further than synthetic rattan furniture! This timeless classic will not only make your deck look more beautiful but the inside of your wallet, too.
We recommend going for the full set as in our photo, which includes one sofa, two chairs, and an adorable little glass coffee table. This asymmetrical style is in line with the core principles of Feng Shui, allowing a more positive flow of energy on your patio.
Simple Corner Lounge
If you’re into minimalistic deck furniture arrangement ideas, then this one is for you!
A minimalist look leans on simplicity and goes well with any style. Yet, in order for it to work, you have to pay close attention to one key detail — color.
For instance, take a look at this beautiful brick wall and the matching end table, the dark cover of the sofa, and the slick, black plant pots. All of this is contrasted by the bright pillows on the sofa, the windowpane, and the pots (both on the ground and on the table).
Notice just how much is achieved by doing so little; truly an art form!
Chic Small Deck Furniture Set
A general rule of thumb for small spaces is to avoid any unnecessary clutter. This will only make a small room look even smaller, and your deck is no exception.
Hence, instead of drowning the whole place with a truckload of furniture, just get a couple of chic deck chairs to make the room appear more spacious.
These handmade wicker chairs are the perfect example. They are beautiful to look at, take almost no space, and are highly practical. And if you really feel like it, you can surround them with plants and make a wonderful outdoor oasis of your deck.
Outdoor Living Room
Choosing outdoor deck furniture with an indoor feel will give your deck cool living room vibes.
For example, opt for an outdoor sofa with removable cushions and a few extra pillows for added comfort. Couple that with a simple coffee table and some wicker chairs for additional seating. Complete the encirclement with a few outdoor ottomans and enjoy the latest gossip with your friends.
You can even add an outdoor rug to complete the living room look; just make sure you blend all the different elements by using the same neutral tones.
As we showed you in our article, there are no wrong choices when it comes to deck furniture. It all comes down to what you want to accomplish, how big your deck is, and how much you’re willing to spend.
Now, the ball is in your corner. Make the best of it and remember to — have fun!
How should furniture be arranged on a deck?
It depends on the size of the deck and on what you hope to accomplish. Bigger decks allow more room to play with, so you can turn all that space into an outdoor living room, for instance. The sky is the limit (or should we say — your wallet).
How can I make my deck more cozy?
To make your deck cozier, add as many pillows as you can and pair them with some comfy cushions. You can even get an outdoor rug, for some additional coziness; your feet will thank you for it!
How do you stage a small deck?
Smaller spaces are best left alone with merely a handful of decor and furniture. Otherwise, they’ll look too crowded. Hence, stay away from bulky furniture and go for smaller pieces; a few chairs and a small coffee table should be more than enough.
Couple that with a few tall green plants and your small deck will look more luxurious than ever!
What kind of furniture is good for a deck?
Wicker chairs, stone tables, and sofas made out of outdoor-friendly materials are all prime choices. In essence, any material that can withstand the elements will do just fine. For more awesome deck furniture ideas be sure to check the rest of our article.
