The 5 Outdoor Furniture Mistakes You’ll Want to Avoid
As the summer season is approaching, choosing the correct outdoor furniture for your unique outdoor space is not as easy as it may seem. Outdoor furniture can be difficult find and many mishaps can crop up along the way. Unique Home Furnishings have established the 5 outdoor furniture mistakes you’ll want to avoid; everything from size, material and quality.
Mistake 1: Not thinking about what sized outdoor furniture you need
Making sure you have enough space and don’t sell yourself short when purchasing your outdoor furniture. If you are always entertaining guests, it’s probably going to benefit you more by having a mix of both the voyage 3 seaters outdoor sofa and the voyager outdoor armchair.
Both variety of outdoor furniture is a relaxed blend of form and function. They come in a chic taupe shade with soft and supportive pale grey cushions. The moisture resistance rope creates a textured detail to the curved back and arms, bringing a sophisticated yet laid back approach to your unique outdoor space.
Mistake 2: Not choosing the correct material for your outdoor space
Some materials may look fabulous for outdoor furniture, however, that would probably not be fit for purpose. Outdoor furniture is specifically designed to withstand the test of time. Many designs of outdoor furniture now are as practical as they are good looking - take our violina wing back rattan chair for example. This rattan chair is woven to create a distinctive silhouette design. The chair’s sleek, rounded form is light and airy and provides organic, natural tones.
If you are looking for unique outdoor furniture that is fit for a family home with young children, it could be a wise decision to consider a set made of rattan such as the wicker garden manila dining chairs. This is due to their ease of maintenance. It can easily be wiped clean, so any spillages can be quickly taken care of and your outdoor furniture can be maintained.
Mistake 3: Always measure your outdoor space before you buy furniture
Unique Home Furnishings cannot stress the importance of measuring before you buy enough. It’s something so simple, yet so many people seem to forget! Our advice would be to mark out the furniture sizing using cardboard or bedsheets so you are certain that the outdoor furniture will fit. As you are outside, you are a little less restricted than you would be inside, but there is no harm in double-checking.
Mistake 4: You compromise the quality of your furniture
Many people have heard the saying ‘buy cheap, buy twice’. This is very much the case with outdoor furniture. It’s essential for you to invest in good quality furniture. The outdoor wicker seating set is a perfect combination of both class and quality.
Mistake 5: Don’t forget the small details
Have you ever heard the saying - ‘the smallest details create the biggest difference’. These finer details can be what really makes your outdoor furniture stand out and truly unique. The desire rope 2.5 seat sofa adds a simplistic yet effective detailing with a dark brown wooden rope structure and black scatter cushions. To complement this, the desire rope coffee table creates a cohesive unit, with a matching warm colour tone. An added bonus to this classic design is the storage unit integrated into the base of the design - perfect for hidden storage solutions!
