Finding out about Outdoor Furniture

Perfect in the garden; as a gathering and sitting area at BBQs, pool
parties and get-together; or as your own little oasis in the middle of
your backyard, outdoor furniture is social, sophisticated and multi-
functional. Available in aluminum, wrought iron, the highest quality
teak, bamboo and other woods, you can find outdoor furniture to complete
any outdoor living space.

The range of outdoor accessories is staggering. These are often designed
to complement your outdoor furnishings. Consider solar-power or electric
lights to line a pathway or any number of awnings or other shelter
structures on your property. Add candleholders atop your outdoor tables.
Pick up picnic accessories, chair cushions, outdoor games – no matter
what type of luxuries you enjoy indoors, you can enjoy them outdoors,
too, with outdoor accessories to fit every taste and style.

Outdoor Sets

In general, there are three types of outdoor sets. All three are made up
of tables and chairs, although the types of chairs and size of the tables
vary greatly. Patio dining sets are ideal for larger outdoor spaces, such
as large patios or back porches. Bistro sets are designed for smaller
spaces, such as an apartment balcony. The third type of outdoor set you
will find is called a conversation set. Conversation sets often include
an outdoor sofa and a few chairs accompanying a coffee table.
Conversation sets tend to be larger pieces of furniture and fit most
comfortably in big spaces.

Outdoor Lounge Chairs
Outdoor lounge chairs are typically fashioned from metal – often wrought
iron – although synthetic materials are on the rise and offer the
sophistication of metal and iron at a reduced cost. Outdoor lounge chairs
are also available in hardwood and teak.

Outdoor Benches

Outdoor benches offer seating for 2 or more, depending on the style.
Available with and without backs, outdoor benches are designed to accent
and blend, and are the perfect accompaniment to furniture already
decorating the space. Some people choose not to use benches for seating
at all, but instead place an outdoor bench in the garden as a showpiece
and setting for their prized plants.

Outdoor benches are available in a variety of materials including
concrete, wrought iron, teak and other metals and woods.

Some benches offer the added benefit of extra storage. These benches are
usually all-weather safe, and come in neutral-colored plastics designed
to camouflage into the background. These benches are great for the garden
and pool area, as they provide extra seating and a lovely place to store
your stuff.

Final Considerations for Outdoor Furniture

When shopping for your outdoor furniture, think about the space you will
be filling and the people who will be enjoying it. Also consider the
weather conditions where you live.Outdoor furnishings should fit
comfortably into the space, so if you are in the market for something to
go on a patio or balcony, be sure to measure the area you want to fill.
Is this furniture for BBQs and pool parties, or quiet coffee
conversations with intimate friends? Do you experience long, harsh
winters where you live, or are conditions generally mild all year long?
Answering these questions will give you the information you need to pick
the best outdoor furniture to fit your life and your style.
