Furniture ideas for my cozy deck

nancitaJuly 21, 2013

Hi all,
The painters did their thing but the deck is still "cozy"; it's only 8 x 10. Hoping to maximize every inch, I am looking for ideas. The grill, unfortunately, is a large one with a side burner from our Key West days when you needed it in case of power outtages. There's one door going out to the deck. The rest is available.
I was thinking bistro? Not the most comfy but maybe that's the sacrifice. And, an umbrella for those sunny days.
There will be Plan B for guests which will be a separate patio patio area down at the backyard level, about five steps down from the deck.
Thank you for any suggestions.

A pic would help. With an 8 x 10 space you should be able to add some comfortable furniture, and if you don't make it comfortable you'll never use the area.
Post over on the Home Decor forum for more suggestions. Lots of folks over there have decorated their decks.

How about an Original Charleston Bedswing? Perfect for porch relaxation - like a big swinging sofa !
