Inexpensive Patio Furniture Sets


For those who don’t want to spend a lot of money on patio furniture, one of these Inexpensive Patio Furniture Sets may be a great choice.  Having a seating solution that will not cost the same as a used car will fit into most people’s budgets.  Most of these sets will be less than $250, less than some people’s monthly electric bill.

Options will be a seating or dining set, depending on your outdoor needs.  The bistro sets can be used for either if you have a smaller outdoor space.  Some will come with cushions or just have a sling material for seating comfort.  I will give my ideas and some of my experience with these types of materials.

Now let us look at each of these styles and see what will work best for you.

This is a great set that can be stored easily, as the chairs will fold up.  I have this set at my lake property and keep it stored in the shed until needed.  The set does include the umbrella, just no stand.

The four chairs have a sling material for the seat and back sections that will dry quickly after a rain.  Sling material and shade material will be available in four colors-Blue with powder-coated frames, Tan, Red, and Gray with dark brown powder-coated frames.

Small locks on the back legs keep this set sturdy while seating, they can be tricky to unlock when getting ready to store this set.

The table will have a hole in the top and leg support for keeping your umbrella in place, I purchased an umbrella stand for my set to keep my umbrella in place.
