Walking into a patio furniture store can feel overwhelming. With all the styles and budgets to choose from, it’s hard to find the right mix of function and aesthetic. Thankfully, there are ways to narrow down the selection and identify furniture right for your home.

Let’s face it: You plan to get wet in a hot tub, so why fret over a few rain drops?

Unless you hear thunder or see lightning, kicking back to the sound of raindrops pattering on the patio can be peaceful.

But the moment the sky turns a threatening colour, run for the indoors.

It's not safe to remain in a body of water, especially one with electric components, in severe weather conditions.

Children ages five and under should never enter a hot tub above 95-degrees Fahrenheit. Even kids up to age ten should spend only a few minutes in high heats because their bodies cannot regulate temperature as effectively as adults.
