How to Choose the Right Garden Furniture

Relaxing and entertaining aren’t solely reserved for the indoors. In fact, with the right Rattan Sofa Set , they may be better when done al fresco. Ready to make the transition to outdoor living, but unsure what furniture fits your open-air lifestyle?

Measure your available outdoor space

The type of furniture you can get depends on the amount of free outdoor space you have available. For example, a small 2 seater bistro set such as our Ella set (shown above) might be the best option for the smaller patio, while our stylish rattan cube set is a better fit on a bigger patio.

Consider what pieces of furniture you need

It is also important that any outdoor furniture you purchase is based on the needs of your family and how you use your outdoor space. For example, if you want to relax with a book, then comfort is paramount, so look at a day bed or an outdoor sofa set such as our Fluer .

Think about storage

Most retailers in the UK will claim their garden furniture is ‘all-weather’; and while we know that our cast aluminium pieces are designed and constructed to stand up to all mother nature can throw at them, they still need to be protected in harsh weather.

So, before you buy a piece of outdoor furniture, see if you have enough storage space for the winter months. If you don’t, go for smaller pieces that you can accommodate indoors or factor in the purchase of a suitable cover into your budget.

Quality is key

When choosing new garden furniture, rub your hand over surfaces to make sure they are smooth. Check that joints are screwed not stapled and glued. With metal garden furniture, check that any welding isn’t cracked and that any powder-coated finish is generously applied.

Cushions will give extra comfort

When choosing outdoor Garden Lounge Set , always make sure you check dimensions. This seems a little obvious, but it is important you check that seats are roomy enough and at a good height in terms of the table you’re pairing them to.

And while our chairs are contoured, for extra comfort, why not add some cushions? There are a number of high-tech fabrics suitable for outdoors, including solution-dyed acrylic fabric, which resists UV rays, moisture, mildew and stains.
