3 ways to create a picture-perfect patio this spring

Reclaim your outdoor space this spring and enjoy it all season long
“With patio season right around the corner you don’t want to leave things to the last minute.” - Parry Gallagher, owner of Coombs Junction Furniture.

With warmer spring days just a few weeks away, now is the time to start thinking ahead to patio season! What was your patio missing last year? What worked? And what needs work before you can fully enjoy your outdoor living space this year?

We asked the local experts at Coombs Junction Furniture for their pro-tips in getting patio season ready and how to best optimize your outdoor environment!

1. A good place to start is to consider how you used your patio, porch and garden last year. What would have made the sunny season more enjoyable? Perhaps an outdoor dining space or more seating to accommodate guests? The key to spending more time outside is making sure it’s a space you want to be in.

“Right now is a great time to take advantage of sale pricing and to custom order your must-have pieces so you know that they will arrive on time,” says Parry Gallagher, owner of Coombs Junction Furniture. “With patio season right around the corner you don’t want to leave things to the last minute.”

2. Think about the essentials that make your outdoor space more enjoyable. Comfortable seating – either cosy chairs or outdoor sectional – a cute bistro set or a full-sized family dining suite can help create a whole other room outside. Of course, don’t forget access to shade when you need it! For both style and longevity, it’s always wise to invest in quality outdoor furniture from well-known brands like Ratana – designed and built to last in our unique West Coast weather and environment.

3. Last but not least, consider what makes those outdoor areas more inviting for yourself and your guests. An outdoor chaise lounge can be a lovely addition if you have the space, and a gas or propane fire pit will help keep things cosy during those cooler evenings, allowing you to extend your patio season and make that outdoor space more inviting. They also create the perfect place to cosy up with a morning coffee or enjoy drinks with friends at the end of the work week. Finally, whether solar or LED, lighting is a must-have. After all, indoors or out, the right lighting makes all the difference when it comes to creating a space you want to come home to!

Coombs Junction Furniture offers a wide variety of Ratana furniture, quality outdoor furniture that is built to last. Shoppers will love getting 10 per cent off all regular-priced floor stock but don’t wait to long, patio season will be here sooner than you think.
