There is a small yard with a swing, a sun umbrella, and a barbeque with three or five friends to enjoy the sun. Isn’t this kind of life pleasant? Everyone will yearn for it, especially those good-looking outdoor furniture, which is really exciting.
1. Consider the weather and climate
Consider the weather in the place where you live. Does it rain often? Or is it tropical, humid, and hot? Direct sunlight will crack the wooden furniture, and the metal material will increase its temperature under the sun, making it uncomfortable to use. If you live in a place that often has tropical storms, strong convection weather, or is close to the sea, instantaneous high winds may also overturn very light furniture such as aluminum or plastic.
2. Leave space around the furniture
Unlike indoor furniture, outdoor furniture does not have special functional requirements, so you don't have to have tables, chairs, and benches, but you still have to match the size of the furniture according to the size of the space. Whether it is next to an open outdoor swimming pool or a limited atrium garden, remember to leave more activity areas. A tall bar table is better than a formal dining table because it saves space by placing bar stools. Or you can also consider a side table with a smaller volume and a pier together, which can move the position at any time and is more flexible.
3. Decide the style and material according to the placement position
Is there an awning in your outdoor activity area? Whether the furniture is placed on a soft lawn or a hard surface. Remember, if you are on the lawn floor, do not use cork frame furniture, cork will absorb moisture, and then cause damage to the frame, try to choose plastic, a steel frame as a substitute. If there is direct sunlight, it is best to use a parasol. Direct sunlight is harmful to furniture and human skin.
4. Material is more important than appearance
The material of outdoor furniture is very important, it determines the maintenance in the future, so don't just look at the appearance when buying. Aluminum and resin are the easiest to care for, while wicker or wood furniture requires regular maintenance.
