If you’re debating whether or not to invest in garden furniture this year, we’re here to let you know three key reasons why it’s a good idea, whether you’ve got a large garden or a small patio – and why you’re guaranteed not to regret it.
It’s undeniable, spending time outside in the fresh air is good for us mentally and physically. Being in nature not only reduces stress, improves our mood and sharpens our focus, but exposure to sunlight also gives us Vitamin D – need we go on?
Who wants to host a party inside whilst the sky is blue outside, or have friends over for coffee in the kitchen whilst the sun shines? Not us! Summer is the season of relaxed, informal entertaining, whether it’s a family barbecue or catching up with friends over a jug of Pimm’s.
‘Your outdoor area should be an oasis from the frenzied pace of life,’ say the experts at King Living Design Studio. They suggest treating your garden like any other area of your home to make the most of alfresco entertaining: ‘When you’re designing an outdoor space it helps to use the same planning techniques as you would indoors. Are you just creating a living zone? Can you also accommodate an outdoor dining area? Consider layering from the ground up with a sustainable, handwoven rug that will provide an elegant neutral base to add sofas, chairs and tables.’
Outdoor furniture suits a whole multitude of social scenarios and creates a more pleasant environment than being stuck indoors on a hot, sunny day. Better yet, weather resistant furniture can be left in place all year long (though a cover is advisable), so your social season can begin as soon as the temperature permits.
Garden furniture serves a purpose that is always needed. Not only will you use it for many years to come, but high-quality garden furniture will also remain looking as good as the day you bought it for a very long time.
Today’s Patio reports: ‘Good patio furniture can last 15+ years.’ Better still, if you invest in high-quality wrought iron or solid teak furniture, a little maintenance will see your outdoor furniture last 25+ years.
If you’re looking for fuss-free garden furniture, rattan is also a good choice – just ensure you cover it in the winter for some added protection.
In short, if you spend money on anything, furniture that gives you long-lasting use is a very good choice indeed. It will allow you to host your favorite people over to enjoy the beautiful weather. Find high quality outdoor furniture such as sets, couches, tables, and chairs at Furniture Solutions.
