3 Tips for Buying New Patio Furniture

After what feels like the longest winter ever, your yard is ready to welcome you back. As the snow begins to melt and the mercury beings to (slowly) rise, it’s a great time to take a look at your patio and start thinking about what you can do to breathe some new life into your backyard oasis.
This week, we’re looking at three things to consider when buying new patio furniture.

1. Choose Something Durable

Summers in the Great Northeast can be something of an adventure. With weather ranging from sun-soaked and breezy to oppressively humid and stormy, we’ve all become accustomed to the extremes and have learned to roll with the punches, and so should your patio furniture. Telescope offers a variety of construction materials, and this week we’re taking a look at the famously durable Marine Grade Polymer. MGP is an eco-friendly material that was originally designed for boat construction, and that level of strength and durability make light work of handling fluctuation of the elements. It won’t warp in the heat, fade in the sun, swell in the humidity, or rot in the rain. Concerned about scratches? Don’t be. The color of the finish runs entirely through the material, making scratches and dings less noticeable than furniture made from other composites. MGP is manufactured to be tougher than our weather and most other things we can throw at it, making it a great choice for your outdoor furniture.

2. Choose Something That Fits Your Space

How large is the space you’ve got to work with? Are you looking to create an area to relax or an area to have dinner? With a wide range of choices from deep seating conversation pieces to full size dining tables, chat chairs to bar-height stools, there’s no shortage of choices, so it may help to have a plan ahead of your visit to Alpin Haus. Knowing what you’re looking for before you walk into the showroom will save you some time and maybe an extra trip to the store (not that we don’t love to see our customers). Pro tip, snap photos and take some measurements of your space ahead of your visit and our professionals can help you find the perfect fit for whatever function your patio serves!

3. Choose Something That Fits Your Style

Showcase your flair in your outdoor furniture! Vintage to contemporary, bold to conservative, Telescope’s made in the USA, made-to-order, completely customizable patio pieces will never leave you settling for something that’s almost right. It’s time to bring your aesthetic to your backyard sanctuary without compromise. With options too numerous to name here, you’ll be sure that your patio is a place that is as unique as your taste!

The weather is changing, the smell of spring is in the air, and after a long winter, your patio will soon, finally, spring back to life. You’re ready for it and we can help make sure that its ready for you.
