Buying new furniture is one of the biggest expenses when you are doing work to upgrade your backyard style. Whether you’re building a new patio area or just tidying things up a little, finding dining sets, patio chairs, or umbrella sets for a reasonable price can be tough.
The good news is, there are some brilliant affordable outdoor furniture brands out there. This list will help you furnish your outdoor space without breaking the bank. Let’s dig into the top 10 outdoor furniture brands:
The Amazon Basics range covers all kinds of products from electronics to homeware, and it has some excellent furniture options too. As you’d expect from an Amazon brand, the prices are very low. Amazon is known for stocking everything, so you can find whatever you need. Their Basics range doesn’t disappoint in this area and you should be able to find some suitable outdoor furniture for your needs.
You can get some very cheap comfortable folding chairs that are perfect for the garden or for camping. At the other end of the scale, you have full patio sofa sets for large outdoor spaces. They even do budget outdoor heaters for a very reasonable price too.
The great thing about Amazon Basics is that you also have everything in between. Whether you need one or two cheap chairs for a patio or you need a full set, you can find it on Basics and the prices are competitive.
Style-wise, all of the furniture is very basic, but you know what you’re getting. If you want something more stylish and unique, you may need to look elsewhere but if price is your main priority, Amazon Basics is the way to go.
2. GDF Studio (Best Value)
When buying furniture, you often have to choose between cheap flatpack furniture that is frustrating to put together, or ready-made furniture that comes with a hefty price tag. GDF Studio is an excellent brand that aims to give you the best of both worlds. You still have to assemble the furniture, but it’s all very easy to put together.
GDF Studio is also excellent if you want designer furniture that is a bit more stylish without having to pay over the odds for it. They have a large range of outdoor furniture and if you’re unhappy with anything (which is unlikely) they have a forgiving returns policy. You can purchase GDF Studio products directly from their website or through their GDF Amazon Store.
They have some excellent outdoor dining sets like this Acacia table and chairs and lots of seating sets too. The prices are not going to be as low as some other brands, but you do get excellent value because the quality of the furniture matches much more expensive brands on the market right now.
If you just want the cheapest furniture you can get and you don’t mind if it’s very basic, GDF Studio isn’t for you. But if you want high quality, stylish furniture at a reasonable price, it’s a great brand.
Best Choice Products is a brand that falls somewhere between Amazon Basics and GDP Studios. Their furniture is still quite basic without too many frills, but you have more choices in terms of color and design. Most of their patio furniture sets come in a choice of at least 3 different colors (some items come with more choices). No assembly is required for most of the sets too. You can purchase products from their website or from their BCP Amazon store.
Their picnic benches are especially good if you want a very affordable seating option for the garden. Their 2-in-1 bench/picnic table is a great versatile piece of furniture and it’s a great deal for under $200.
Best Choice Products is a good brand if you want a big range. Being able to choose different color options for most of the outdoor furniture is brilliant, and the prices are incredibly reasonable. Everything is designed to be weather resistant too, so even though it’s not expensive, it will still stand the test of time.
Christohper Knight started his career as an actor in sitcom The Brady Bunch, so people were surprised to find that he had started his own furniture brand. However, it’s an excellent budget brand with some beautiful pieces of outdoor furniture.
Christopher Knight furniture veers towards luxury, high-end products, but with a simplistic design. If you’re a fan of minimalist furniture, this is the brand for you. They offer a lot of high-quality wooden furniture, like this folding chair, which is reasonably priced at just over $160. Bigger sets like this dining set are brilliant for the price and you could easily expect to pay double the amount for something similar elsewhere.
In terms of the choice, Christopher Knight Home isn’t the best brand on this list. However, if you like the simple style, you will get excellent quality for a discount price. Just be aware that you will need to assemble a lot of the furniture yourself.
IKEA is one of the best-known budget furniture brands there is. They are known for their simple, easy to assemble (in theory!) furniture with a low price tag. The design takes its inspiration from minimalist Scandinavian décor, and if you don’t like that style, IKEA may not be for you.
The thing that really sets IKEA apart is the modular approach to their furniture. This is something that they focus on with interior furniture as well as their outdoor range. You can buy things in sets but most things are also sold as individual items. You can also pick up chairs separately from the cushions, for example. There is a large range of different designs and all patio furniture with cushions comes in lots of different colors too.
IKEA is the way to go if you value flexibility and you want to be able to create your own customizable outdoor furniture sets.
Keter is a brand that has been around since 1948 and they’ve built a reputation for high-quality outdoor furniture at affordable prices. However, more recently they have developed a strong focus on sustainability. All of their pieces are made from 100% recyclable and sustainable materials. They have an extensive range of outdoor furniture, and the quality is great. You can find the range on their site and through their Keter Amazon Store.
They sell some nice simplistic outdoor chairs and tables made with recycled plastics. They also stock a lot of good outdoor entertaining items too. It’s a particularly good range if you have a pool area because the plastic will hold up against the moisture better than wood.
Hanover is a well-known brand that is sold by a lot of major retailers. It has a reputation for quality and many of their outdoor furniture pieces are inspired by hotel resort designs. If it’s high-end that you want, Hanover is the way to go. They pride themselves on quality and durability, so even though the prices are a little higher than others, it’s a worthwhile investment.
This 5 piece dining set with an umbrella is a perfect example of the quality, design, and hotel style of their furniture. It’s easy to browse their range based on material, style and color, so you can easily find what you’re looking for.
If you are going to buy Hanover furniture, it’s a good idea to do a price check first. Check their Hanover Amazon page and see what other retailers are selling the same item because you may be able to get a better deal.
Outsunny has a huge range that covers everything you need for the yard, including things like Gazebos and BBQs alongside all of the standard garden furniture. It’s a very family-friendly brand that focuses on durable, practical garden items that can withstand a lot of wear and tear.
You’ll find some great fun pieces of outdoor furniture for cheap prices, like this 2-person swing, for example. You’ll even find a great range of hammocks for the yard too. All Outsunny products are available on their site and through Outsunny Amazon store. If you need to fully kit out a family garden, Outsunny is a great option.
YitaHome has a nice range of garden furniture, and some more practical yard items like raised beds and deck storage boxes. You can find their products on their own site and on their YitaHome Amazon store, but also in stores like Walmart too.
The quality is evident in all YitaHome products and you’ll be glad to hear that those that need assembly are simple to put together. Much of the furniture is made from plastic rather than wood, so it’s more affordable than most. This 8 piece patio couch set, for example, is very cheap at under $800. You can easily pay thousands for something similar elsewhere.
YitaHome may not offer the same luxury-quality furniture that some other brands do. However, if you want very durable furniture for an incredibly competitive price, it’s excellent. That said, it’s not the best option if you want sustainable furniture.
Devoko is an international brand with a strong focus on customer service. They do an extensive range of patio furniture but they’re particularly good for wicker sets. They have lots of great wicker furniture like these sofa sets and dining sets.
All of the furniture they sell comes with a 1 year guarantee if you buy it through their site or through Devoko Amazon. They also ship products very quickly too. When dealing with budget furniture brands, there is often a fear that the service will be bad and you won’t have the same protections if the quality isn’t up to scratch. If you are concerned, Devoko is a good choice because they’re very customer focused and the quality of their furniture is brilliant.
