Depending on where you live, the weather may be getting colder. If you are fortunate enough to live where it’s warm, even better, because now may be the best time to buy those dining tables outside as well as any other outside living furniture you want.
This is the biggest factor when deciding what type of furniture you will buy. If you will have your furniture outside will you leave it outside or will you store it during the winter months? If you store it during the winter months, you want furniture that is not only easy to store, but won’t scratch and will be easy to move.
If you don’t have a lot of storage space, then choose furniture that is not only stylish but can be folded up and easily put away. This will limit the types of materials you may use, especially wood or wrought iron, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a beautifully decorated living space.
You also want fabrics that are durable and store well. If you must move and store your tables, you may want to skip using glass tabletops because you run the risk of breaking them. If you plan to leave your furniture outside, you may want to buy some covers to cover it and protect it, especially if your furniture is wood. Keep glass tabletops and accessories out of reach of children so it doesn’t get broken and children get injured.
