A deck is a great addition to your home and provides you with a place to sit outside, relax, and enjoy the outdoors. Once your Maryland deck has been built, it’s time to furnish it so you can begin to enjoy your new outdoor space. At Custom Deck Builders, we offer Trex furniture that can withstand the most extreme weather Maryland has to offer. There is a wide variety of outdoor furniture options available, so let’s take a minute to see what may work best for your outdoor space.

Outdoor Seating

Seating furniture is arguably the most important furniture you will purchase for your deck. There is only so long you can stand on your deck, not to mention that it’s boring and tiring. There are a wide range of seating options available out there: anything from Adirondack chairs to chaise lounges and all-weather couches. The most important factor to consider when selecting outdoor seating for your deck is which separate functional areas you want on your deck. Are you a grill master who plans to have many meals outside in the summer? Do you want to have a spot to relax on a comfortable couch under the stars after a long day? Or is sunbathing in a glamorous chaise lounge more your style? Whatever zones you picked for your deck, Trex has seating that will fit right in!

Outdoor Dining Furniture

A dining table and chairs add value to your space by giving you, your family, and friends a place to gather and share a meal. A quality outdoor dining table can last for years and years to come, and be your family’s gathering place all summer long. Outdoor dining tables come in a variety of materials and there is a wide array of options available for any price point. Here in Maryland and Southern Pennsylvania we can experience some dramatic temperature changes, so it’s important to invest in quality furniture that can withstand any type of weather. And don’t forget about dining chairs! Nowadays you can get anything from picnic-style benches to fancy swivel chairs.

Outdoor Furniture for Relaxing

If relaxation was your goal in adding a deck, you are in luck because there are lots of furniture options that will turn your deck into a relaxing oasis. You can pick between chaise lounges, loveseats, sectional sofas, rocking chairs, recliners, swings and even day beds! While the type and quality of furniture is important, don’t overlook the cushions. Having a nicely-fitted cushion that doesn’t sag or flatten after a few uses is the key to outdoor comfort.

Outdoor Storage

One final thing to consider when outfitting your new deck is storage furniture and accessories. Maybe you need a place to store the dog’s toys, footballs or the croquette set? There are many weatherproof solutions available for your deck that won’t be an eyesore for you or your guests. Another accessory you may overlook is an umbrella to provide shade on hot days. Many table and chair sets come with umbrellas, but we also offer free-standing umbrellas that can be placed anywhere on your deck for an immediate relief from the hot sun.

At Custom Deck Builders, we will not only help you design and build your perfect deck, but also assist you in selecting the perfect furniture for your space and your needs. If you are ready to furnish your new deck with some all-weather furniture, stop by our showroom in Southern PA today!
