We’ve also included some things to consider that will help you choose the right patio furniture for your outdoor space.

    Measure your available outdoor space

    Use the shape and area of your garden to know the size of the furniture you need to buy. Ensure that you have enough space to walk around comfortably. You can also purchase more gardening products and accessories from Sapcote Garden Centre to match the style of the plants, make colorful and stylish surroundings, or have a minimalistic design, depending on your preference.

    If you’re usually reading guides on The Patient Gardener as you plan to start your own garden soon, make sure to consider the size of your future garden as well. You don’t want to end up buying outdoor furniture that are too big or too small for your garden as this can adversely affect the ambiance of the space.

    Ideally, you should prepare a layout of your garden as this can help you determine how big or small your outdoor furniture should be. This will help you narrow down your options, and ensure that you’ll only buy pieces that will allow you to maximize your garden.

    Also, decide wisely on where you should place the furniture, Do not place a furnishing made of softwood like pine on an exposed grassy area. The dampness from the ground can cause the wood to disintegrate. Additionally, it can also make some metals deteriorate. You should also install umbrellas for shade if you are receiving too much sunlight exposure.

    Think about storage

    Most retailers in the UK will claim their garden furniture is ‘all-weather’; and while we know that our cast aluminium pieces are designed and constructed to stand up to all mother nature can throw at them, they still need to be protected in harsh weather.

    So, before you buy a piece of outdoor furniture, see if you have enough storage space for the winter months. If you don’t, go for smaller pieces that you can accommodate indoors or factor in the purchase of a suitable cover into your budget.

    Quality is key

    When choosing new garden furniture, rub your hand over surfaces to make sure they are smooth. Check that joints are screwed not stapled and glued. With metal garden furniture, check that any welding isn’t cracked and that any powder-coated finish is generously applied.

    When it comes to durability, our general rules are as follows:

    Teak is better than pine

    Cast aluminium is better than steel and easier to maintain than iron

    UV-treated polyester is better than cotton

    High-quality synthetic rattan or wicker is better outside than the real thing

    Consider the different materials

    When shopping for outdoor furniture, the most important decision you have to make is regarding which material is best for you
