Patio Makeover Time! at Newegg?


Our back porch has basically been used as a clutter catcher for the kids toys for the past couple of years. We have a playhouse, a kiddie pool and a water table out there. If an adult wants to sit outside we tend to grab an older chair and find a spot in the corner.

It’s really not very comfortable nor very “oasis” like which is something we would like to have. It has great potential for an oasis type spot. It is fairly secluded with a large tree next to it blocking the view of the street. With the roof on it the temperature in the shade is always much less than if we were to try to find a place in the backyard. To be honest, we were beginning to get rather sick of not being able to enjoy this area that was just screaming for a makeover.

So began my mission.

Yes… you see the correct logo on this post. Newegg. I am near positive that a majority of you were just like me and associated with only electronics.

Boy was I w r o n g. They have a fairly large selection of patio furniture. Large enough that the debate began in my head.

I love the inviting look of the Sinochem Ningbo Bronze Textilene Sofa Set

It definitely looks comfortable… more of an inside feel on the back porch. I wondered if I would have enough room for something like this though. So I continued my search.

The Rosewill Heritage Collection looked like a great set for the family to gather around.

The seats looks comfy and the table is large enough for all six of us. But then the Teak Ivena set caught my eye.

I love the look of wood but wondered how comfy that might be on our bottoms. I like the fact that the chairs fold for easier winter storage or just to make room for the kiddie pool and I know that Teak wood is fantastic wood.

Decisions…. decisions.

What direction do you think we should go?

Check back soon! I will reveal our choice and let you know what our final thoughts on it are!


  1. Wow, awesome ideas! It depends on what you really want to do on your porch. I mean do you want to just sit and relax or do you want to be able to have dinner? That is a ? You have to consider. I do like the wooden dinning set and you could have comfy cushions for the seats. Oh but what about the poor kids? Where are they going to play now? LOL You deserve to have a nice area to relax. Maybe there is some place in the downstairs. Or our back where you can watch them while you are relaxing! =)

  2. I like the wood option you can always buy seat cushions, plus like you said the fold up which is really handy.

    I like the chairs on the second one and the look of the 3rd one. I vote…third one and get really comfy chair pade. 🙂

    i didn’t even think of newegg for general electronics! Only computers, so this is enlightening.

    with little kids I guess the last one would be nice. Not comfy…but durable with little ones around.

  6. I love that first set especially! And yes, I wouldn’t have known about Newegg and patio furniture.

  7. Sabrina Radke says

    WOW! I really only thought Newegg had computer stuff (my husband is in IT). I love the Rosewill Heritage, it looks super comfy!

    I like the Rosewell Heritage – teak can be so beautiful, but padded seats are what really matter when you’re relaxing outside 🙂

    I like the first set!!

    I like the look of the Sinochem Ningbo Bronze Textilene Sofa Set. It like patio furniture I’ve never seen before.

  11. Nice.. I really need a patio makeover. Our patio is so small, I’d love to extend it for more room.

    I had no idea Newegg had this kind of stuff! I usually find my husband perusing their website for computer-related deals. Personally, I’d go for the teak as you know it will last forever, and you can always add cushions. I went for the comfy backyard set over the sturdy one and had to replace it within 2 years!

    i vote seat cushions 🙂
