Tips for choosing the best garden furniture for your home

With the warmer months ahead of us, we’ll be spending more time in our gardens and enjoying the sun whenever we can (safely of course, and with sun cream!). To make the most out of your outdoor space and create an oasis for you and your household to enjoy, we recommend getting the right type of garden furniture— furniture that will look great, stand the test of time, and that you’ll want to spend time in. Read on to find out our tips for choosing the best type of garden furniture for your home.

1. Make sure your furniture is comfortable: It goes without saying that for you to really enjoy your garden furniture, it should be comfortable and give you the support you need. If you don’t enjoy sitting in your chairs, couches, loungers, etc, you’re not going to want to be spending your sunny days in them and it may have an impact on your garden enjoyment. We recommend safely testing out your garden furniture before buying if at all possible, or if purchasing online make sure to pay attention to the type of support your potential furniture will provide, and listen to the reviews to see if it sounds like a good match for you! You can always add cushions later on to help make things more pleasant.


2. You’ll want furniture that is quality made and will last: Don’t waste your money on garden furniture that will fall apart after the first year or two. Think of your garden as an extension of your home, and the furnishings you put in it should be wise investments that will stand the test of time. Again, if viewing garden furniture in-person, pay attention to how it’s constructed, and feel for any weaknesses or potentially delicate areas that might not bode well outdoors. Garden furniture should feel solid and strong.


3. Look for furniture that is waterproof: With the Irish weather, regardless of how hard we may try to keep our garden furniture dry, it’s likely that it will get some rain at some stage. If your furniture is waterproof and weather proof it will handle the elements with ease! You won’t have to worry about rushing to cover it whenever there’s a drizzle, so it will also give you peace of mind. If you’re looking to waterproof your new or used wooden garden furniture, you’re sure to find a Sadolin product that suits your needs. Our wide range of products for exterior wood includes wood preservers, wood stains, and opaque timber protection. Each of our products is specially formulated to help your wood stay protected while looking its best.


4. Choose furniture that suits your unique needs: Ask yourself what you’ll be using your garden furniture for. Do you have a big family at home that you’ll need to accommodate or will you just need room for a couple of people? Are you going to be using your furniture to lounge or do you want furniture that’s made for dining? Figure out the ideal furniture type for your unique situation and use that information to narrow down your search.


Now, who’s ready to make the most out of their garden with some spectacular garden furniture? When it comes to timber, whether interior or exterior, Sadolin has you covered.
