Purchasing Outdoor Furniture
Consider the following when shopping for outdoor furniture:
Measure the available space carefully and be sure to pay close attention to the dimensions of the furniture when making a purchase. To get an idea of how the furniture will look in situ, mark out those dimensions in newspaper.
Always opt for outdoor furniture made from hardwearing, weatherproof materials. If you expect to use said furniture infrequently, look for low maintenance options like resin wicker chairs with an aluminium frame.
Opt for furniture that suits the size and layout of your outdoor areas. For example, a bistro table with foldable chairs will be perfect for a small balcony but lost on a large patio.
If you plan to store your furniture through the winter, be sure to check you have sufficient space to do so. To reduce your workload, look for lightweight furniture that will be easy to lift and move.
Consider outdoor furniture that develops design themes present in your indoor furniture. This will help you create a sense of continuity and flow as you move from one space to the other.
