5 Things To Consider…
How much can you spend?
You can spend a little or a lot on furniture, as with any other purchase. But if you choose wisely, you’ll receive the best value for your money. To stretch your budget, find out what materials the garden furniture is constructed of and think about how adaptable and frequently you’ll use it.
What purpose will your outdoor furniture serve?
Will you be using it to rest, eat, or do both? Do you have a lot of seating or just a few? Consider the possibility of adding some extra seats. This will assist you in deciding whether you require dining or coffee tables, benches or seats for the garden, or all of the above.
Where will the outside furnishings be kept?
When it comes to storage, having stackable outdoor dining chairs is a terrific feature because they will take up much less room than if kept separately. The best tables are those that are both strong and portable because they can be stored with ease. Choose a garden cover to safeguard your furniture throughout the winter if inside storage is not an option.
Does the outdoor furniture require a lot of upkeep?
It is advisable to evaluate the UV protection, water resistance, and anti-rust properties of fabrics as well as the features of metal frames. So that you can be sure the furniture is suitable for outdoor use. For simple cleaning and storage, removable cushions & seat covers are also essential.
Have you given comfort any thought?
Your garden seating should, in our opinion, be a natural extension of your house. Why shouldn’t we have this luxury outside if we have comfortable couches and chairs indoors? This entails making sure that the size and shape of the future cushions are appropriate for your room in addition to the materials, textiles, and cushion construction.
Similar to a dining chair, a back height between 30 cm and 40 cm is suitable for a garden chair with lumbar support.
The ideal distance between the top of the seat or the top of the dining table for an average dining chair is between 26 and 30 cm. Your chair will fit comfortably under a regular height table and yet leave plenty of room for your legs if it measures 46 to 51 cm from the floor to the top of the seat.
You might want to double-check the space if you decide on garden armchairs. If this is the aesthetic you’re going for, make sure the chair arm can be tucked in because the thickness of the table top will reduce the area available for it.
Remember to measure the chair’s footprint to ensure it is wide enough. If they will be next to the table or not depends on where the feet will be placed.
Material: Verify if the dining chairs’ material is appropriate for outside use. For instance, you should look into the UV protection and stain resistance of bench cushions and fabrics, as well as the anti-rust properties of metal frames.
Shape: Dining chairs with arms provide extra comfort when seated, while those with slightly curved backs let you sit back and unwind fully.
Storage: The chairs may be folded or stacked? These space-saving features will be quite helpful for storage. In the sweltering British summers, the weight of the stacked chairs will prevent the chairs from whirling around the area.
