Here are a few things to think about when choosing the style of furniture for you and your family:

  • The size and layout of your patio or veranda: Take some measurements and draw it out, add on your fixtures like doors, windows, posts, and see what usable space you have left. Even small areas can have comfortable, practical and stylish furniture, you just need to be a bit more strategic in your planning.
  • What is the main use of the patio or veranda? Do you have kids running around and want the footprint of the furniture to remain small when not in use? A great way to achieve this is by using benches around your table. They will push underneath when not in use. Or do you plan on entertaining large groups of friends and family and need as much seating as you can? An extension table is a flexible way to go, so that you don’t have to have a big table all the time. Is your priority casual weekend BBQs with a smaller group of close friends, where your focus is on comfort and relaxation? A comfy lounge will encourage relaxation and provide somewhere for your guests to chill out. Or are formal dinner parties more your style? A dining table and chairs is always a popular item when people want to have dinner parties. Being able to see everyone encourages conversation between your friends.
  • When choosing your outdoor furniture, what materials are you drawn to? Are you looking for something traditional and hard-wearing like Kwila or teak timber? Or is low maintenance and easy to clean, like wicker or aluminium, up your alley? Is your desire to have something sleek and on-trend? Combining materials such as wicker, teak, aluminium, or stone is really on-trend at the moment.
  • Is the colour important to you? Do you want to match existing furniture, flooring, fences, window trims, or house colours? Many of our sets come in more than one colour combination, so bring samples of your colours into the store and we can help you locate something complimentary for your outdoor space. At Outdoor Furniture Co, we love our range of classic and natural colours. These colours will not date and are versatile and flexible. Don’t feel limited by this though, add in your pops of colour or complimentary colour scheme by using throws, floor rugs, scatter cushions, and decor.

Whether your space is limited or not, be guided by your entertaining preferences and choose furniture that you love! We hope this has helped in some way and we look forward to hearing what you choose. If you have any questions or comments, we would love to hear from you.
