Written by Wicker Paradise
Outdoor furniture gives a homeowner a chance to be creative and invest in pieces that are different from their usual indoor furniture style. Here are 4 tips for choosing the right outdoor furniture for your home.
Function and purpose – You should ask yourself how you intend to use your outdoor space. You may want to use it as an additional dining space or as an area for reading and lounging. In most cases, people will look for outdoor furniture that is suitable for both entertaining and relaxing.
Comfort, construction, and style –Look for furniture with strong frames like wicker, rattan, metal, timber or other hardwoods. You can then consider additional comfort by buying cushions. It is best to invest in a set of patio furniture replacement cushions, for when you want a change, a pop of color or for special occasions. Remember to include furniture like a day bed, hanging chairs and floor cushions to ensure that everyone has a comfortable place to relax.
Storage and easy care – If your furniture is partially or fully uncovered there is a good chance that your furniture will crack, stain or rot. Therefore choose pieces that are weather resistant or those that you can be stored away during the off-season. Invest in replacement patio cushions in sun, water resistant fabrics for added protection from the elements.
Quality – You want your outdoor furniture to last, therefore be ready to spend for pieces that are treated and made for the outdoors.
