Spring is already here! And the weather is gradually becoming warm and comfortable for outdoor activities. So it’s time to get the patio furniture out of the basement and make the most of the beautiful weather. However, sometimes last season’s furniture no longer looks as if it would be suitable for guests. Therefore, one must look for new outdoor seating. Choosing garden furniture is not as easy as it sounds. If you’re looking for new seating and dining options for your outdoor living space, here are some tips to help you navigate the sea of possibilities.
Which garden furniture do you need to fully enjoy your garden area?
Choosing the right garden furniture and designing an outdoor living room
What is important when choosing new garden furniture?
Good garden furniture brings comfort and function. With the right pieces of furniture, you can bring your interior to the outside and expand it enormously. For example, you can take your dining room outside with an all-weather table and chairs, and relaxing rocking or lounge chairs create a living room whose ceiling is the blue sky.
Create a quiet relaxation area in your own backyard
The first step in choosing the right patio furniture is to consider how you want to use your outdoor space. Would you like to eat on your terrace or relax in front of the fire in the garden? Will you be entertaining large numbers of guests or will you be hosting more family gatherings? The answers to these questions will help you choose the right furniture for your outdoor space.
When shopping for furniture, you should choose low-maintenance materials that match the look of your landscape and home. There are many opportunities.
Choosing the right garden furniture for your outdoor space is of great importance
Natural wood is strong and comfortable, but needs regular maintenance and preservation to protect against the elements and UV rays. Opt for weather-resistant woods like redwood, teak, cedar and cypress, which require less maintenance.
Rattan and wicker
Natural materials like rattan and wicker give your patio a casual, comfortable look, but they need to be weatherproofed every few years. Synthetic rattan and wicker are finished with a resin coating that lasts much longer.
Rattan furniture is a popular choice for a reason
steel and wrought iron
Both materials are extremely robust, but you need suitable seat cushions for more comfort. The steel and wrought iron patio furniture is great for outdoor use but will need to be painted regularly or treated with a weatherproof coating to prevent rusting.
aluminum, plastic and PVC
These materials are rustproof, lightweight, inexpensive, and easy to maintain with just a little soap and water. Due to their light construction, however, they must be secured in strong winds and storms.
Furniture made from these materials will look fresh for years. No matter how weatherproof the furniture is, you should store it over the winter to extend its life. Before you buy, consider how much space you have for storage. Test the furniture before you buy it. For this reason, sit in the chairs and try to open and close the umbrella once or twice. Make sure you like the convenience and ease of use.
Choose garden furniture with a modern design
Value the quality. What are the most important criteria?
When shopping, don’t assume that price is the best indicator of quality. So how can you tell what valuable garden furniture looks like?
Wood should be sanded smooth and free from imperfections, even in hidden places like the underside of the tabletop. Painted metals should have an even surface. Wicker should not unravel or be loosely wrapped on the frame.
Quality counts, convenience too!
Firm and well-fitting connections
Metal welds should be reasonably smooth. Make sure the metal doesn’t have any bare, unpainted areas or, worse, rust spots.
Make sure the chairs don’t wobble or bend too much. A certain amount of flexibility is fine, though, especially with tubular metal chairs that are meant to be springy. The same applies to the table after it is assembled.
The merchant’s return and exchange policy
This point is actually of great importance in the event that your furniture appears damaged or poorly finished upon delivery or collection.
How to create a vibrant outdoor space!
Outdoor living spaces are greatly enhanced with different colors, textures and accessories. Pillows and throws offer wonderful comfort and invite you to linger. Buy products that are specifically made for outdoor use. Two popular materials are through-dyed acrylic and spun polyester because they are moisture, mildew, and stain resistant. Most fabrics that are suitable for outdoor use are also resistant to fading. Pillows with ventilation openings for air circulation dry faster after a spring or summer rain shower. With a rug that is suitable for outdoor use, you can create an extra cozy place to relax. When choosing the color palette, personal style and preference are decisive. Bright, colorful patterns pair well with a Mediterranean landscape and liven up an evening on the patio, while neutral, muted tones convey a relaxed, clean vibe.
Spend as much time as possible with your loved ones outdoors!
Good garden furniture is an investment. Take the time to weigh the different materials and products available, so you can fully enjoy the comfort and beauty of the outdoor spaces you create.
