When you're choosing the best patio furniture, you'll usually buy a set - but do you want a dining table plus chairs, comfy seats with a coffee table, or a long table with benches? You also need to think about material and style. Rattan is very popular at the moment, but if you prefer wood then make sure it's hardy enough to withstand the cold and rain if the patio furniture is left outside. You can find metal patio furniture - but make sure it's rust-proof - and if you want something fuss-free, then plastic is probably the best patio furniture material.
Low maintenance patio furniture
The best patio furniture is this rattan set from Abreo. It comprises two seats, a sofa, and a table. As well as looking great, it's super safe as it complies with UK fire safety regulations and the tabletop is made from tempered glass.
It's made from a PE rattan weave that never needs to be painted or treated, so it's really low maintenance. The covers are dirt resistant and showerproof - and they're removable and washable.
Simple and affordable
If you want the best patio furniture that's simple and affordable, this four-piece set from Stream has you covered. It has two chairs, a sofa, and a coffee table. The seats are made with a fade-resistant, durable fabric and the whole set is hardy enough to withstand a typical British summer.
Two chairs and table
The best budget patio set comes with two foldable wooden chairs and a foldable table - and can be used outside or indoors if you need some bargain furniture. The teak has been treated to be weatherproof, and it's small enough to squeeze into the tiniest of patios or balconies. And when winter comes, it takes up barely any storage space.
