Finding the perfect garden furniture set take a little bit of time and research and there is a huge product range to choose from. Here are some helpful tips and advice when it comes to buying garden furniture
Measure the space
Whilst that shiny garden furniture set may look great on our website or in our store, make sure it fits the space you have allocated for it in your garden. More often than not, the garden furniture looks smaller when displayed in a large garden centre. But remember, no matter what size your garden area, we have the solution!
Secondly, when we are talking about space, consider where you will be storing the table and chairs, if they are staying in the same place, consider furniture covers to protect them from the wintery conditions. If storing in a nearby shed, make sure there are no leaks. If you have cushions, store them in a warm and dry environment to prevent against mold.
Consider The Material
Garden furniture comes in many different styles from plastic, aluminium, weave/rattan and wood. You may be tempted by the cheaper option, but keep in mind that garden furniture, like furniture for your home, is an investment and like all things, quality is usually reflected in the price. That being said, you want to make sure you get a good deal!
Plastic garden furniture is a cheap and cheerful option, it's main attraction is that it is cheap to buy and easy to clean. However, given our changeable weather, you will most likely be knocking into your neighbour at some point to retrieve your chair from their back garden. Plastic garden furniture also breaks easy so you will most likely have to replace a table or chair at some point, plus plastic is not too kind on the environment.
So, we've talked about space and material, now comes the exciting part when you choose your perfect garden furniture set. Here are your options;
