Nice weather draws family members to their terraces and gardens, which then turn into an outdoor living room needing suitable garden furniture. You can install a sunlounger, parasol, garden furniture, a swing, table, or even prepare food in an outdoor kitchen. Garden furniture must be firm, weather-resistant, easy-to-maintain, and durable, so it’s usually made of hard types of wood, metal, plastic, or a combination of these materials. Wooden garden furniture seems to be the most comfortable, cosy, and welcoming option, and it perfectly fits in with the nature that surrounds it. If you decide to go with wood, avoid endangered exotic species, and get a local type, like locust, pine, and larch. Although the most affordable, plastic garden furniture usually seems less attractive and reliable. Metal garden furniture is by far the most durable solution, although it can be heavy and seem cold. It seems it’s best when paired with modern architecture. With the right colour and style, it can seem pretty welcoming. The best thing about an outdoor kitchen is that it doesn’t require ventilation. Kitchen components staying outside during the winter must be made out of high-quality materials, such as stainless steel, concrete, natural or faux stone, and different plastic composites. If you have a swimming pool, consider installing an outdoor shower next to it. Use our calculator to check prices of garden furniture.
