Upgrade Your Outdoor Furniture with a Lounge Set
We get it – you want to live, lounge, and relax outside. To do so, equipping your house with comfortable, functional furniture is the way to go. If you’re ready to move the inside-out, we recommend looking out for the following when shopping for lounge sets from afar:
- Style: Consider the style of home first and foremost. Budget is important, so is comfort – however, we’re the first to say that just because the outdoor is outside, doesn’t mean it isn’t an extension of your home.
- Sizing and Specifications: Make sure the piece will fit and suit both through your entryway and in the dedicated space. Thinking about buying a full set of more than one seat? Double and triple check your floor plan and product size before buying.
- Textiles and Materials: Because some families like to use their sets year-round, make sure the items you have your eye on are made from fabrics and materials that can withstand a bit of inclement weather and the strong Australian sun.
Shopping for family furniture? A few more things to consider:
- Sharp Edges: Whether it’s your family’s knees or potential falls, consider the safety of each piece and your family’s ability to navigate around the furniture without getting cuts and bruises.
- Soft Materials: Little people and pets can mean accidents and trips – make sure you have soft cushions for gentle landings in the case of an accident.
- Weight: Sturdy is the name of the game here – and you want both the weight of the piece and its weight capacity to accommodate your needs. Solid timber furniture looks great and has a long life – but it may not be repositioned as easily.
- Storage: Hoping to easily pack up and put away your set after the day is done? Consider how easy it will be for the whole family to join in – or look for a lounge that has the weight to withstand strong winds.
