    Planning on where to put your deck furniture is the first step. You may not know at this point which house or porch you want it on, but when you do decide, chances are the type of furniture will dictate where it will be placed. If I were thinking about having a large over-sized couch on my back deck leading to the pool, I would make sure during installation that there was enough room for maneuverability and couldn't become stuck behind any bushes or taller plants since they grow quickly! The couch could handle all that shade created from those larger plants and provides some "guest" seating in an area where people may come out to enjoy themselves after a day of sitting out at smaller tables / chairs.

    The outdoors are the perfect place to take advantage of beautiful natural materials, such as bamboo or cedar.
    It's always a good idea to make sure you select quality pieces that can be outside year-round, but if you're in doubt, I would recommend trying furniture made out of cool materials like rattan or even teak.

    The most important thing to do is measure the space you have available. Measure your deck from one end to another and see how many items can fit in that area before deciding which furniture you should purchase. Once you find a space for all your furniture, make sure to measure how much room each individual item takes up so there's enough room for people to walk around between the pieces of furniture. There are a lot of beautiful options available - choose what fits your decor best!

    -Purchase a chaise lounge (if you barbecue) also good for soaking up the sun.
    -Pool or patio chair to get some fresh air, use outside a lot.
    -Stainless steel or wicker counter height dining table and chairs are great for outdoor living spaces
    -Glass top table is perfect if you have kids or pets because it requires very little maintenance activity like placing coasters or placemats on it during dinners and gatherings.
