Patios, balconies, backyards, decks, and rooftops are really only as good as their furnishings. That’s because even if you’re enjoying the most beautiful view with your best friends and the perfect drink, you’re still going to need a place to sit down (and set your drink). And while patio furniture has a reputation for being expensive, there are plenty of budget-friendly outdoor seating, table, and decor options that work just as well.

Whether your outdoor space is totally bare or just needs to be refreshed with a few new pieces, we found fantastic choices for weatherproof chairs, side tables, benches, and more, all in styles and materials — wood, rattan, metal, etc. — that look great in any home. (We even discovered small-space-friendly pieces and a complete patio furniture set for just over $100.) Check out our top picks below and get ready to enjoy your upgraded and updated space all summer long.

The tempered glass top is super durable and has enough room to serve a full meal to two to three people. Its metal base is powder coated to resist rusting, and around the rim of the table, you'll see some decorative rattan weaving that adds a nice little flair.

These outdoor ottomans give you both seating and storage options, which definitely helps when you're working with a smaller space. The cushions come in six colors and are attached to the rattan base with hinges that let you lift them up and put or retrieve items from inside. Each ottoman is built to hold up to 350 pounds, so you really can use these as primary or secondary seating options. And because the seat covers have zippers that let you remove them, you can toss them in the washing machine whenever they need a little refreshing.

This pair of folding chairs are a great foundation for any outdoor setup, and because of their compact design, you can easily store them indoors during the off-season. Each chair is made of an iron frame that's powder coated to be weather resistant and has a synthetic wicker seat and backrest that's comfortable and timeless. Their handsome dark brown color meshes well with any outdoor decor scheme.

Even if you don't really need to conserve space, this C-shaped side table is a smart purchase. Its legs slide under chairs and sofas so you can keep it nearby to have easy access to your outdoor snacks, and it's made of sustainably-sourced wood that's constructed to be contract grade, meaning it will still look good even after your friends who don't use coasters come over. Available in three wood colors, too, to match your exact style taste.

Your outdoor space is worth investing in, and these acacia-wood dining chairs are a great place to start because they'll last for years and will look nice with any other furniture pieces you pick up in the future. The chairs have a beautiful teak finish and come with seat cushions covered in a water-resistant fabric, which is important for all good outdoor seating. These are moving quickly so grab them while you can.

Add this acacia-wood loveseat to your outdoor space and you'll find yourself spending a lot more time out there. The back and seat cushions come in either blue or white and have a water-resistant fabric covering that will still look good even if it gets rained on a bit. It easily seats two to three people and has curved armrests that offer comfortable support. Be sure to spruce it up with a few outdoor throw pillows, too, to truly make it your own.

Bring a sense of Boho chicness to your space with this wicker outdoor furniture set. It includes two armchairs and a small table with a tempered glass top that's easy to wipe clean. We prefer the kind of polyester rattan used here because it holds up well over time and is simple to keep clean, plus it costs less than natural materials. This set also includes two seat cushions with removable covers that are machine washable — so the inevitable beverage spills aren't the end of the world.

Shade is super important to enjoying the outdoors, and this sturdy umbrella (with stand) is an excellent shade provider. The umbrella fabric is 100 percent polyester, so it will stand up well to inclement weather and is easy to rinse off with a hose if it ever starts to look a little dirty. A hand crank on the umbrella pole lets you open and close the umbrella easily, and you can choose to tilt the top to get more precise protection from the sun.
