Top tips when buying garden furniture


Summer is here, and we’ve got for you all the things you need to consider when buying garden furniture – if you want to get it right.

You may not realise it, but it is essential to choose the right garden furniture for your outdoor space. Whilst you need to consider what looks best and the style that suits your taste, you should also consider what will work best for you.

To help you make sure that you have the right garden furniture, here are some of our top tips on making sure that you get it right.


Always measure your space

The first thing that you need to do before you buy garden furniture is to make sure that it will fit in the outdoor space that you have. You need to measure this, but you also need to think about what else you want to have out there.

The last thing you will want is to find your patio cluttered up and looking cramped. Not exactly a relaxing space for you to use.

Consider the sun

While we don’t always have lots of sunshine here in the UK, it is always worthwhile to think about how the sunlight we have will affect where you can sit in your garden. You want to make sure that you can enjoy the sunshine when you want to and have some shade when you need it.

This could either mean placing your furniture in the right place or making sure that it is moveable by either folding or lightweight.

Make the most of what you have

By their very nature, Gardens are not always the biggest spaces, but that doesn’t mean that you have to give up on the idea of using them at all. It means that you might need to think outside of the box and make the most of what you have.

Just like there is compact furniture inside your house, the same is true for garden furniture, which means that you can have all the different pieces you want but that you don’t have to worry that they will make the space feel even smaller than it is.

Decide on a function

Some people want their garden furniture to allow them to unwind and relax outside, so comfort is their primary consideration. For others, their outdoor space is a dining area, which means that the garden furniture they choose will be solely focused on providing a place to eat.

Sure, there can be some cross-over between the two functions, but for the most part, you will have one or the other in mind.
