If cushions and pillows have removable covers, wash and dry them according to manufacturer instructions.

Let the cushions, pillows, and umbrella dry completely before storing.
The size you choose is very important. When deciding on size, you need to leave room on the patio for people to move around. This is most important if you entertain regularly. Your guests should be able to freely mingle. A good idea is to make a diagram of your deck to scale and then cut out some pieces of paper to represent your furniture. By placing these cut-outs in various positions on the patio drawing you will be able to see if you have sufficient room. Choose furniture that will not clutter the area. If room is limited then choices like extendable tables and fold up chairs can be the answer. Excess chairs can be folded and stored until needed. Tables can be extended when necessary.
