Tips on Choosing Furniture for Outdoor Spaces

It’s summer, and despite the weather not being the most ideal for enjoying the outside at this moment, we still want to make the most of our outdoor space in the house.

There are some activities that it’s always better when done outdoors, such as enjoy a sunny day at the swimming pool with the family, welcome guests for lunch in the garden, or even enjoy a cup of coffee and a good book alfresco. #

These are just some of the situations that put our gardens, backyards, and /or outdoor areas to the position of favourites in the house and, therefore, needing furniture for outdoor environments that provide warmth and lightness to such spaces.

Gravel Patio

When we think floor, we don’t need to go just for the functional one. In this outdoor area, the wooden deck floor on gravel is noteworthy. Decks are easily found in stores and home improvement stores, such as large home centres, and can be installed with a blink of the eye. Then all you must do is combine it with some pebbles to make it look rustic, with a beach feel or a personal touch.

Cactus and Succulent Garden

Sometimes, we just don’t have a huge space outdoors. But it doesn’t mean we can’t make it looks better. If you don’t have a space with soil, but would love to have a garden, how about using wall- mounting or hanger pots?

And if succulents and cacti are your passion, they can be the protagonists of a beautiful arid garden, for example. It can look nice on the porch or in the backyard, vases of the same style form a harmonious composition, with species of various sizes and styles.

Natural Textures

If you are thinking cosy, the natural textures can create this kind of atmosphere and bring a rustic touch, which has everything to do with outdoor areas.

They bring the feeling of a country house or beach, and it reminds you of a nice holiday in the countryside or the seaside, right?

So, they are a good choice to decorate the porch or backyard. You can use natural texture on the furniture, floor, and walls, which guarantees privacy to residents.

Boho Style

The boho style is one of the beautiful finishes that you can bring to your garden, because it mixes several styles, can be a good source of inspiration for you to decorate your outdoor area.

It’s naturally cosy and very colourful. So why not paint the walls a vibrant colour? Then complete the décor with weft rugs, patterned fabrics, and lots of plants.

Functional Furniture

Unlike the living room or kitchen, the outdoor area is multipurpose, so it needs versatile and resistant furniture. Invest in items made of wood or steel that can are perfect for accommodate more people, such as wide benches.

If using cushions, choose waterproof fabrics, and avoid placing them everywhere. Furniture with more than one function, such as a table that can become a bench, is also a good option.
