Tips for choosing outdoor seating

Posted by Developer Tightline on

It’s a real luxury to sit outside on a long summer afternoon – reading a book, sipping a drink, or chatting with friends. But we believe that the perfect experience depends on the perfect outdoor seating. Here are four tips to help you choose outdoor seating for your home.

What will you use outdoor seating for?

Start by thinking practically. How many people spend time in the garden? Do you need seating and tables to entertain, or do you want to create a private nook that’s just for you? Once you know how you plan to use the space, it will be clear what kind of outdoor seating you need.

Choose something weather-resistant

This should be obvious – but you’d be surprised by how many people don’t think it through. A garden can still be enjoyable in fall and even in winter… but you have to pick the right outdoor seating. Choose something that can stand a little bit of wind and rain. If you want to add cushions and blankets to your outdoor spot, make sure you have a place to store them indoors during bad weather.

Find the perfect spot

Next, pick the location for your outdoor seating. Do you want to be in the shade, or catch some rays? Does your garden have any windy or exposed areas that you want to avoid? What about privacy? Space for entertaining?

This step will also help you to choose the right kind of seating. If space is a concern, then measure carefully before you purchase any outdoor seating.

Match your aesthetic

Last of all, be sure to choose outdoor seating that fits in with your garden. If you’ve created a peaceful zen space with natural materials, then a stainless steel, minimalist bench will look a little out of place. Remember, you’re trying to create a place where you can relax – so make sure the design accommodates your needs and preferences.
