patio furniture

When you’re buying new patio furniture for your garden, there are a number of factors to consider before rushing in and ordering any. We came across this article on which discussed some of the things you may want to consider before investing in new furniture for your garden. Take a look and see what you think…

In order to create a truly social and usable outdoor space, you need good furniture. Don’t fall into the trap of buying furniture that looks nice but doesn’t function particularly well. The top trend is rattan garden furniture – and this has been the case for years now. 

Rattan sofas, chairs and tables can be found online at a fairly low-cost too. If you want to make your outdoor furniture last that little bit longer, we suggest purchasing a table top protector. These acrylic panels are shatter-resistant and weatherproof, protecting your furniture from the elements and general wear and tear. 

Other furniture items to consider are:

  • Benches that double as storage containers
  • Fold-away sun loungers and chairs if your garden is small
  • Fire pits to keep guests warm 
  • Patio Heaters (propane is the most common fuel)
  • Soft furnishings (pillows, rugs, etc.) that are suitable for the outdoors
  • Lighting (tiki torches, fairy lights – whatever you want)
