Patio Dining Chair: If your patio table should match the design of your patio, then it also follows that your patio dinning chairs should also fit your table. Obviously, an aluminum patio chair would be an eyesore if you have a wooden dining table on your patio. Likewise, it is not pleasing to have a patio dinner seated on a wooden patio dinning chair while eating on a plastic patio dining table.
Location of the patio : Most patios are sited immediately adjacent to the rear exit from the house because it is convenient - this may not be the best location for your patio. The back of the house may be shaded all day and therefore not ideal if you wish to like to sit in the sun. Consider a small terrace to the rear of the house with another seating area somewhere else in the garden which gets more sun. When designing a garden it's a good idea to include more than one patio.. One patio can be sited so that it catches the last of the evening sun to provide a warm spot for an evening drink or meal. This makes the garden much more interesting and ensures that you are using more of the garden.
