Outdoor Patio Furniture Sets: The Buyers Guide

There are so many things to think about when you are investing in garden furniture. Whether you are spending £27 on a camping sunlounger, or £1000 on a luxury set, there are several factors to consider.

 

Choosing the Best Outdoor Patio Furniture Set for You

Do you dream of large family gatherings, or just you and a friend sitting for hours with some food? Think carefully before you invest in garden furniture and you won’t be disappointed.

Size

Size always matters. Do you regularly have four or more sitting outside? (Or just enjoy a large table!) This might sound obvious, but don’t forget to buy a set with the number of chairs that you need! If the set comes with four chairs and you are looking for six, see what else the seller has to offer. There are quite often extra chairs hanging about in warehouses; don’t be afraid to ask!

Rattan, wood, or metal?

Think about where your new furniture will live when you are not using it. Will it stay out 365 days of the year, or are you planning to store it over the winter? Plastic-molded rattan and treated metal will be fine left out (although some will say that metal should be wiped down after rain). Some wooden garden furniture is pressure treated to last outside. The moral of the story, really, is to ask the seller any questions that you have.

Design aspects to look for in outdoor patio furniture sets:

Build quality

Check to see how much of your new furniture set will arrive already built. If it arrives fully constructed, do still check all of the nuts and bolts to make sure none of them have been loosened in transport. If you are happy to carry out a little construction with your garden furniture, then your options will really open up. What we are saying here then? You need to make sure that once the furniture has arrived at your home, it has been put together properly!

Replacement parts

If you stick with a known brand, you shouldn’t find it too hard to find replacement parts should you need them (although you may find it simpler to pop into your local hardware store for the odd nut). Research the correct or recommended treatment for your furniture if you have selected wooden garden furniture, Cuprinol is usually in the mix for quality wood preservatives and paint. If you have chosen metal garden furniture, it is recommended to purchase a ‘touch up’ pot of paint at the same time to ensure you can colour match the second you spot a chip on your garden furniture set. Companies such as Nova garden furniture stock a great range of colours in their ‘touch up paint’ range.
