A go-to guide to buying garden furniture
As the weather gets warmer and summer creeps in, the days get longer. You want to spend more time soaking up the sun, being outside. All of this is possible, but not without a good set of garden furniture. Furniture can make or break your garden. It plays a vital role in how your patio or lawn looks and feels. It adds colour, texture and balance to your garden and adds a sense of homeliness.
Deciding on Furniture:
So, how do I choose my garden furniture?
Here are some simple, but important things to consider when looking to buy furniture and accessories for your garden.
First step, deciding what type of garden furniture you will need. Do you need a water resistant set, suitable for all seasons or a set that's easy and simple to store during the winter? Are you looking for a set to last years and years, such as glass and real rattan? Or are you perhaps looking for a faux rattan or metal set?
Deciding what type of furniture you need is vital when designing and furnishing your garden. We offer plenty of options to suit your needs. These include loungers, terrace sets, bistro sets, corner units, etc.
Storage plays a considerable role in choosing garden furniture. Easy storage during the winter is super important and attractive when choosing furniture. Weather- proof garden sets make it easier than ever to store garden furnishings during the colder, rainier seasons. It is important to keep your outdoor furniture safe and protected so that it will last long term. A foldable, small outdoor dining set is perfect for smaller storage spaces, whereas a stackable corner set is more suitable for people with big areas allocated for storage
How will you use your furniture? Big family gatherings or small galas? Casual or formal dining? On the patio or the lawn? Do you need a firepit set or maybe a bar set? Deciding how and where you will use the furniture is possibly one of the most important steps to take when choosing furniture.

Measure your space and consider how much of it you want to furnish - you will need enough room to allow an easy flow of people around the set, but also so you and your guests can relax in comfort. You have to be careful to not overwhelm your area, too much furnishings and accessories can take away from the serenity of your garden. At the same time, you should not underwhelm the area either, a perfect balance of furniture and nature is so important when designing your garden. You may want to keep a clear area for other accessories such as planters or lanterns. this is what adds new texture and colour in your garden.
Be aware of how the orientation of your garden can maximise a beautiful view or face away from a not-so-lovely area. Take in to consideration, the direction of the sun. You may need to add space for an umbrella to add shade in a sunny spot. Include a get-away place in your garden. As the name stands, it's a place to get-away. This place should be peaceful and quiet. Smaller furniture items such as a bench or a bistro set are perfect for this.
