There is nothing better than taking a nap outside. Don’t get us wrong, taking naps inside is great and all, but napping outside is simply so soothing. Curling up on a comfortable couch under a clear summer sky with a good book and drifting off to sleep by the sounds of birds, the wind through the trees, and the distant sound of lawnmowers. For months, you have probably watched the snow continue to collect on your old and weathered patio pieces and have longed to update them. Now that the weather is finally starting to get warm, there is no better time to update your patio than right now because it means that you will be able to get many months of outside naps in before the weather turns cold again.

Criteria Used for Evaluation

Style

Your backyard is most likely the place you go to feel calm and at peace after a long and crazy week, so it is important that where you sit down looks good. We tried to select pieces that had a simple design to prevent them from looking too dated down the line. These pieces are incredibly resilient, and you probably won’t be updating them any time soon (although you might replace the cushions after a few seasons). It was important to us that we selecting something that was had a basic design, and one that was easily painted if you ever want to change up the color scheme of your patio.

Durability

That the thing about patio gear- it is going to continue to stay outside even during the wither. Most users don’t have the desire or the storage space to drag all of the pieces on their patio into the garage or storage shed for the winter, so they just leave it out there to collect snow and ice. We were drawn to pieces that were made out of aluminum frames (that were lightweight yet durable), and resin wicker exterior that is basically indestructible to ice and cold. Metal or wood designs are also good, but over time they can look incredibly worn, are difficult to clean, and the paint will often peel off over time. Wicker, on the other hand, will continue to look like new season after season. If you are looking for something to last you for the long haul, wicker is the best way to go.

Value

Prices for these products are a little all over the map. Some brands will set you back the same amount of money it probably cost you to build your actual deck, and others will hardly make a dent in your wallet. We tried to keep our price ranges within the realm of reason, because you don’t want to blow your entire summer budget on chairs and sofas, and not have enough money left to throw a party to have everyone enjoy it.

Comfort

If it isn’t comfortable, no one will want to sit in it. And if no one wants to sit in it, then it is nothing but an expensive and oversize patio decoration. We made sure to keep in eye on the materials that the cushions were made out of, and if past users found them to be comfortable. One of the things that people really seemed to appreciate were models that had high backs. Many of the sectional pieces out there have lower backs without that much cushion, so we tried to find models that made higher backs that were more comfortable.

Design:

The simple design will look great on every patio. This set comes with two individuals chairs and a couch that can comfortably hold two people. The base of these chairs are made from a black wicker that looks sharp even without the white seat cushions. Unfortunately, this design doesn’t have any back rest cushions- so your back may get a little hot against the wicker on steamy summer days.

Durability:

The frame of each chair is made from a strong and reliable steel, so you won’t have to worry about dragging it back into the garage when the snowflakes start to fly after Halloween. On the downside, the glass is unable to be removed from the additional table, so you will have to store the table into the garage.

Value:

One of the best features about this Radeway set is that is it one of the most affordable set currently out there on the market, and will likely cost you less than what you paid for your propane gas grill. Given that it can seat up to 4 people with the addition of a good sized table, this is offered an an excellent price.

Summary:

If you aren’t willing to pay a lot of money for a new set to put out on your patio this summer- this is an excellent choice. We should add that the lower price means that it is a little less comfortable than some of the other options- but you could always buy more cushions or pillow to compensate.
