Today, many homeowners are furnishing their outdoor living spaces as they do their indoor spaces. In other words, they’re going for a functional space layout with comfortable, yet sturdy pieces of furniture and decor to match. Patios and decks are set up for weekend entertaining, glass-walled sunrooms are the perfect locale for family night and garden seating lets you be one with nature. And although the weather may still be a bit chilly in most places, the time is now to plan how you will spend your time outdoors come spring. While you’re getting your garden seating ready for the warmer months, KOZY Kingdom wants to remind you that we offer nationwide delivery on all wicker and rattan furniture in stock!
Here are a few important things you should know about wicker garden furniture before purchase.
Know where you want to put the furniture and how it’ll be used
Before you start shopping for wicker furniture, it’s good to know where each piece will go in the garden. For example, most outdoor wicker furniture is weatherproofed, but synthetic wicker—which is also weatherproofed—tends to stand up to the elements better. It’s typically made of woven resin and vinyl—in other words, it’s tough stuff! So, if you plan to leave wicker chairs and tables uncovered and exposed to the weather, then synthetic may be the way to go.
Also, know how you’ll use the furniture. If it will be used for outdoor dining and entertainment, then a more elegant dining set may be for you. For heavy-use pieces, go for strong frames and select durable, fade-resistant cushions.
Plan the right accessories
If you’re going to place wicker garden furniture on a covered concrete patio, you may want to get an outdoor rug. Not only will a rug keep your feet at a comfortable temperature, it will also add to the aesthetics of your outdoor living space. What’s more, since you have a covered patio, there’s no need to worry that rugs will get rained on.
For wicker furniture that sits out in the open—at the end of a gravel garden path, for example—these pieces can benefit from a large umbrella for shade and rain protection. Also, make sure you are not putting chair or table legs on deep gravel, because it will sink down, creating an uneven surface for tabletop use and an uncomfortable angle for sitting.
Consider how durable pieces need to be
Wicker products are extremely durable and come with strong steel or aluminum frames. It makes the perfect material for outdoor yard use. But to save time and money on a purchase, consider how durable your furniture will need to be. Factor in things like whether you have rambunctious children or pets, and how much use the furniture is likely to get. Also, think about the future. How long does your furniture need to last?
