What you plan to do on the patio will affect just the kind of furniture and amount you need. If you plan on grilling on the patio and eating outside, then you will need a larger table than if you just plan to sit outside and read a book every now and then. Someone that plans to entertain people should definitely invest in extra furniture. It can be embarrassing if you need to bring something from inside out because you ran out of resin outdoor patio furniture.
Other than for people with small patios, you probably want a minimum of a table for 6-8 people and a couple of extra chairs. That is a good start for resin patio furniture, and can be enough for the needs of many. People with large families or that entertain large groups will obviously need something larger than that, but always be sure to have room for 2-4 more people than you ever expect to have over. Too much room is much better than too little.
People expecting groups in excess of twelve people should consider getting multiple tables. Once you have a table for twelve, it gets difficult for people to converse across it. Generally, these tables will look better if they are the same size, but some patios will benefit more from a large and a small table instead.
If you plan on grilling, you also will probably want an extra table nearby the grill solely to give you a place to put things on while cooking. You may want to spend the extra money for a metal table in this case (especially if you can find one that matches the rest of your furniture). Resin wicker patio furniture is quite durable, but if it accidentally gets slammed into a hot grill, it may end up warping a bit. Better safe than sorry.
You will want to space the rest of your outdoor wicker patio furniture away from the grill. This isnít so much for that slight damage hazard, it just gets uncomfortable sitting next to a hot grill. It also really isnít safe near a grill, since you donít want any tripping hazards. It is just a little extra consideration for comfort and safety to keep in mind when laying out a patio design.
If you plan on spending a lot of time sitting outdoors, particularly reading or just enjoying the fresh air, you may want to get a couple of sun chairs with small side tables for a drink. If you do get these, be sure to get at least two, as long as you have room. Also get a side table for each one, rather than sharing one table between two. It just saves the hassle of accidentally knocking over the other personís drink, and it isnít that big of an extra expense.
Taking that little bit of extra time to plan your patio can make the process of buying outdoor wicker patio furniture that much easier. It also helps to make sure you get the patio you always wanted.
