In the words of Phil and Kirsty, it is most definitely all about location, location, location! OK, so they were talking about houses, but the same is also true when it comes to both interior design and garden design.
And, in terms of garden furniture, before you buy, you should always be thinking location, location, location! You don’t want to spend a considerable sum of money only to find that your newly purchased outdoor garden furniture simply doesn’t ‘fit’ with your garden or style of home.
Homeowners need to first think about the choices involved and make the purchase with a little careful planning.
We always advise our customers to think about what the garden furniture will be used for and the available space, before even thinking about features such as material and design.
Think about things like who will be using the furniture and how many guests are likely to be invited around during the warm, summer months.
For example, if you’re lucky enough to have a nice large outdoor space, and you like entertaining, then you need to be looking for a garden furniture set with plenty of different seating options in order to create a relaxed welcoming feel.
A city apartment or small house with a patio on the other hand, will benefit from a sleek table and chairs, while a parasol can also be a great investment for homeowners with gardens which receive a lot of sun.
There are a lot of choices to make when it comes to your patio furniture and I’d recommended going online when it comes to actually buying the garden furniture, do a little research and don’t just limit yourself to what’s available in the local garden centre.
Choosing the right garden furniture for your garden space is a decision that shouldn’t be taken lightly.
At Lazy Susan we blog a lot about the different types of garden furniture, but with this post I wanted to try and help people choose the right garden furniture and make it last.
As the garden and patio are becoming increasingly important areas of the home, so too is your garden furniture. People are now demanding stylish furniture that can withstand everything the British weather can throw at it.
It is always a worthwhile exercise to do a little research before buying any garden furniture. If you choose the right set from the off, it will bring you style, enjoyment and most importantly longevity.
Buying the right garden furniture can initially appear daunting as it is tricky to know which style you can buy or which material you need to consider choosing.
And thanks to the web there are more places than ever to buy your garden furniture. If you look online you will usually find a considerable number of internet stores offer gardening products at a far reduced rate in comparison to their offline counterparts.
Whether you planning to entertain outdoors for a large number of people or are simply looking for a place to sit and relax with close family, choosing the right garden furniture can be a little tricky as there are so many designs and styles to choose from, especially when you start looking online.
Think carefully about what and who will be using your outdoor furniture set as this will play a crucial part in the size of table and number of seats you require.
If you have a large garden you can choose whether to have one large dining area or create several smaller seating areas around your garden that will enable you to catch the sun at different times of the day.
If you have a young family and you want to create an outdoor dining area for you all to enjoy a BBQ during the summer, then consider a large rectangular table with stacking chairs. This way, if you can store additional chairs in the garage without taking up too much space and bring them out if you have family or friends over.
At Lazy Susan our bistro tables are extremely popular and are great for intimate outdoor dining or just sitting and relaxing with a book alone on a sunny weekend.
If you enjoy having morning coffee with a friend outdoors in the sun this type of table and chairs is the perfect solution. A Bistro set is also a great option if you only have a limited amount of outdoor space.
If you plan to entertain lots of family and friends in your garden, then it is definitely worthwhile investing in a large outdoor table and chair set.
At Lazy Susan you can purchase large tables with up to 12 chairs included and you always have the option of purchasing additional chairs for the set if required.
If you do need to buy a large amount of outdoor furniture, then please check that you have sufficient storage space in your garage or shed to put any extra seating when it is not being used.
