Maximize Seating

No one wants to squeeze in shoulder-to-shoulder on a tiny sofa. When shopping for patio furniture, think about how many guests can realistically fit on each piece. While a sofa could technically fit 3 guests, it may only fit 2 adults comfortably. This is why it’s important to “test sit” furniture before you buy. At Mid State Pools & Spas, our showroom features outdoor furniture ready for you to try!

Think About the Tables

If you’re throwing a big party with dozens of guests, all your visitors may not be able to fit at a large, outdoor dining table. Be sure to think about other places your guests can eat comfortably. You can do this with smaller café-style tables strategically placed by seating areas throughout your patio.

Lights Make a Difference

Installing additional lighting can set the mood and make your backyard patio feel like a luxurious venue. String lights are a popular solution, and there are dozens of styles to choose from. For those chilly fall months, a fire pit can give your patio excellent mood lighting while keeping everyone warm and cozy.
