Ahhh… it is almost spring time and depending on where you are located, the first signs of spring may have already started! Even if you are still trying to get out of winter’s cold temperatures, spring will be knocking on your door next. Spring time means the return to the outdoors and relaxing and entertaining in your outdoor home. If you are trying to decide on what type of garden furniture to choose, here are simple tips to steer you in the right direction.
Match your lifestyle with your furniture
The best way to choose furniture is to figure out how you and your family enjoy your leisure time outdoors, as well as how you entertain guests. For a home that has pool parties every weekend alongside their summer kitchen, you may choose lounge chairs, tables, and areas for guests to dine and congregate. While if you are a smaller family, who enjoys amenities of the serene outdoors, an outdoor daybed, porch swing or more intimate seating may be just perfect! Whichever is your style, choose outdoor furniture that you will love to enjoy by yourself or with a large group.
Choose furniture that fits your climate
While you may fall in love with the garden furniture that you see in your favorite home furniture magazine, verify what type of climates the furniture works best in. For desert type climates, chairs that require cushions should be removed daily, so they won’t fade and crack with the excessive sun. If you are in a rainy and humid climate, teak and cedar wood garden furniture is the best choice and will weather nicely over time. For multiple weather climates consider resin wicker that looks like wicker but is made from resin.
Garden furniture comes in several varieties to meet your style, budget and climate!
Choosing outdoor garden furniture has just gotten easier with these helpful tips. Whether you are ready to choose your lounge chairs now, or you are just ‘window shopping’, spring is on its way and you will be prepared. Your outdoor home has waited all winter for this; enjoy all of the elements that spring has to offer and get ready for a relaxing spring.
