The aura outside your window
Where you live can be one of the deciding factors when choosing furniture for your garden. Take note of the surrounding climate. Is the air hot and dry, or is it humid? Do you live on the coast or in the centre of the country? These questions may seem strange to you, but be aware that wooden furniture exposed to too much moisture can rot, and strong winds can lift and destroy lightweight plastic furniture. Therefore, be realistic about the weather conditions that prevail in your area and keep them in mind when shopping.
When buying furniture for the kitchen or bedroom, you first take measurements – right? You should also prepare yourself before buying garden furniture.
Measure the available space and think about what percentage the furniture will take up – remember that you will need enough space for you and your guests to relax comfortably. Also, do not forget to leave room for free movement in your plans.
Do not break down if you have a small space available. By entering “garden furniture UK” in the search engine, you will immediately find shops (e.g. https://www.dakohome.co.uk/garden-furniture) and furniture suggestions that can be easily adapted to both a magnificent patio and a small terrace in a classic British house garden.
When choosing furniture for your garden in the UK, keep in mind how you plan to spend your time outdoors. If your garden is to be a meeting place with friends and a common barbecue, consider a set consisting of armchairs, a sofa and a table. The terrace is to be your oasis of peace, for lounging with a book in your hand? In that case, a garden swing or a hanging chair will be a solution just right for you!
