Patio Furniture for Summer

Invest In Simple or Decorative Covers

It’s easy to forget that while summer surely brings heat, it also brings some of the highest levels of rainfall all year. Luckily, investing in some simple patio furniture covers is an easy way to deal with the heat, the sun, and the rain all in one. These covers, which come in a variety of sizes and colors, won’t set you back much. More importantly, they will save you from having to make replacements from sun and rain damage in the long run.

Screen-in Your Space

Furniture covers are great when you’re not outdoors, but how do you protect from the elements while enjoying your outdoor space? Enter patio screens, which reduce the heat and sun that reaches you so you can stay cool while still enjoying the warm summer days. As an added bonus, this will allow you to relax outdoors on summer evenings without having to spend your time swatting away mosquitos or gnats.

Distribute Citronella

If screening your space isn’t for you, it doesn’t mean that you have to succumb to the wrath of summer bugs. Luckily, this also doesn’t mean coating yourself with sticky, pungent bug sprays. Try setting some citronella throughout the area: this natural mosquito repellent comes in a variety of styles from diffuser rods to candles, which can even become part of your patio furniture decor. With a natural herbal aroma, you can enjoy the scent of citronella and an evening spent relaxing, not swatting away bugs.

Repurpose Your Barbecue

Barbecues are a staple of summer, from Memorial Day to the Fourth of July and every spontaneous cookout in between. But just because you’re not firing up the grill doesn’t mean that you can’t put your barbecue to use. Instead of spending hundreds of dollars on a fire pit, you can just as easily take the grill off of your barbecue and light some long-burning charcoals. This simple repurposing can extend your outdoor time from day to night, so pull out the marshmallows, chocolate bars, and graham crackers to put this simple hack to use.
