While we relax indoors in front of the fireplace in winter, we want to spend as much time as possible outside in the warm season. It has been proven that spending time outdoors has a positive effect on people and can reduce stress. With the right garden furniture, you can create your own outdoor lounge and turn the garden into an oasis of peace and relaxation.
The right furniture for the outdoor lounge
Although summer still seems far away, right now is the best time to prepare the garden for the warm days. Gartella’s lounge furniture is an excellent option for outdoor use, as it has a homely flair and invites you to linger. Their elegant design and exclusive look are just perfect for the modern designed garden. But what should you pay attention to when furnishing the outdoor area?
First of all, you should decide how you want to design your own outdoor lounge. Do you want it to be just a place to relax and unwind after a busy week, or more of a place to dine and enjoy with friends and family? This is where the size of the garden or patio often matters. A large garden, for example, can easily be divided into different areas, such as a lounge area and a separate dining area. In the small garden, on the other hand, space is limited and you have to replace large pieces of furniture with space-saving versions. Here is an overview of the options for furnishing.
The outdoor living room
Especially in late spring and summer, the living room can be extended outside to create the perfect place to meet friends and relax. To make it as cozy outside on the patio as it is inside your own four walls, you need the right garden furniture. The outdoor living room, for example, simply cannot do without comfortable seating. With an outdoor seating group and a matching side table to it, the popular living room character can be conjured up in the outdoor area. Small details like soft cushions, pillows and pads add to the seating comfort and give your outdoor lounge a luxurious touch.
If you like to enjoy breakfast outdoors or often invite friends over for dinner, you can transform your patio into a dining lounge. The classic dining set includes the dining table and matching chairs, which should definitely meet all the requirements for garden furniture. A compact dining set is wonderful for a small outdoor area, while a long table will look great in a large garden. You can choose between materials such as teak, glass or HPL (High Pressure Laminate) for the table top, all of which are robust, weatherproof and hygienic.
Relaxing under the sun
For the perfect summer feeling, loungers for the garden are also an excellent choice. These are offered both as individual garden and sun loungers, as well as entire daybeds that contribute to the feel-good ambience in the outdoor lounge. Whether reading a book, soaking up some sun by the pool, or simply resting your feet after a long day at work, the lounger offers plenty of opportunities for relaxation.
These are the requirements your outdoor furniture should meet
When choosing the right outdoor furniture, the quality of the garden furniture plays a crucial role. It should be made only from high-quality materials and have good weather resistance. Stainless metals, such as stainless steel and aluminum, as well as weatherproof teak wood speak for high quality workmanship and are perfect for outdoor lounging. Another popular material is the polyrattan, which is confusingly similar to the real rattan made of natural wicker, but is much more resistant. The upholstery of the lounge furniture must also be made of special fabrics that are UV-resistant and water-repellent.
No less important is the design of the garden furniture. If you want to furnish your terrace in a modern way, you will make exactly the right choice with high-quality lounge furniture. The selected materials and colors should definitely be in harmony with the house facade and create a harmonious overall image. Clear lines and an appealing look are key here.
