We all love to entertain outdoors during the summer months. The right garden furniture can enhance outdoor spaces and make them more enjoyable. This guide will help you choose the right patio furniture for your home.
Metal garden furniture adds a touch of modern elegance and value to your garden. It is lightweight and portable, and can be easily moved and stored away. You will need to protect it with an antirust coating unless it is made of aluminium. Because it is light, you should be cautious in windy conditions as furniture can easily be blown over.
Wooden furniture brings a rustic, traditional look to your garden. You can stain or paint it to match your taste. Different woods have beautiful graining. Because they make a natural oil that protects the wood against wind, rain, and sun damage, hardwood options last longer. These are more costly than softwoods like pine and will require a weather protector to be applied. Wooden furniture can transform any garden’s appearance and is strong enough to withstand strong wind. To protect your wood from rot and burrowing insects, you must treat it regularly.
Rattan is a modern and fresh take on garden furniture. It offers both great functionality and design flexibility. There are many weave options that can be made to look like woven wicker. However, rattan is lighter and more durable than wicker. It is often pre-treated to resist weather. It is easy to maintain and looks great in any size garden. However, be careful when there are strong winds.
These outdoor dining sets can be used for formal or casual dinners. They include a large table with dining chairs and a few chairs. Depending on your garden size, they can be purchased in 4-6 or 8-seat versions. Most come with a parasol that protects you from the sun’s rays, while others have a firepit at the center of the table to provide warmth and ambience all evening.
Lounge sets include large cushioned chairs and sofas with large cushions. They are great for entertaining casually and relaxing in the sun. A lot of lounge sets come with a small table and a bookcase. These lounge sets require a large garden.
Bistro sets have a beautiful European appeal and are perfect for small gardens. These sets are compact and can be folded away to store extra space. These are great for people who live on a balcony but don’t have any patio or garden space.
Other Garden Seating
You can place benches against walls or in the middle of a patio to allow you to enjoy your garden wherever you want. These benches can be made of wood or metal and can be used in any outdoor space.
Hammocks are the ultimate relaxation. They don’t need to be strung between two palm trees, although this is something we recommend. You can place supported hammocks anywhere in your garden. This means you can still enjoy the relaxing motion of a hammock rocking with a pina colada in your hand.
These seats are perfect for enjoying your garden and softly swinging in warm sunlight. Swing seats are cushioned seating that can be hung from a strong frame and swing back and forth. Many swing seats have a canopy that provides shade.
Sunloungers are designed for relaxation in the sun. The recliners allow you to sunbathe or make the most of the hot, balmy days.
