As youre reading through this list you can draw out your layout on a paper just to get a rough idea of where you want to place your patio furniture.

Pick A Main Area


Create a center point that will serve as the main gathering area and the heart of your patio arrangement. The rest of the patio decorations will be placed around this area and their design follow the same trend.

Symmetrical or Asymmetrical


The shape of the arrangement can indicate the purpose for your patio. A symmetrical arrangement creates a formal living space, think a living room shape. An asymmetrical arrangement can create a more relax casual space, think lounge area. Decide what feel do you want your living area to have.

Design For Easy Access

When designing your backyard think about the way your guests will enter the space, is there a clear unobstructed path to the entrance and exit? How will they travel around your outdoor space?

For best practice allow a 30-48 of space for areas with a lot of traffic. This way arrange your patio furniture in a manner that directs our guests around the main siting area.

Perfect Placement


As a rule of thumb always place the longest piece of furniture along the longest wall, facing the main area. This technique will add to the area instead of diverting the attention. Next you can add seats, coffee tables and ottomans around the sofa to complete the design.

Dont Mix The Kitchen In

Separate the outdoor kitchen from your dining and lounging area. Its important to differentiate these spaces for safety purposes, you dont want the kids near the grill!
Also keep your kitchen area close to the house backdoor, that way peeping is easier.



As an added bonus tip: make sure to accessorize with throw pillows, rugs, lighting and greenery. Accessories can really make your backyard space come together. You can always rearrange your patio furniture to freshen up your backyard and knowing how to do so definitely helps!
