HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT PATIO CHAIRS
Different garden chairs have different properties: some can stack, others can fold, some have armrests, others have high backrests. So, what should you chose? In this blog post, we guide you to the decision that is right for you.
SMALL BALCONY OR LARGE PATIO?
A small balcony or patio requires smaller furniture. Most garden chairs have a width that ranges from around 40 to 70 cm so if you have a small balcony or patio you should go for narrow garden chairs. You could also use a garden bench for seating. There is a rule of thumb saying that you should allow a gap of about 15 cm between your garden chairs for everyone to sit comfortably but this does not apply to a garden bench.
If, on the other hand, you have a large balcony or patio, you are free to choose wider garden chairs with armrests and a lot of presence.
HIGH BACK OR LOW BACK?
Do you enjoy long dinners in each other’s company? In that case, it is extra important that the garden chairs provide maximum comfort. A high back patio chair like LOMMA provide full back support and can protect you and your guests from a chilly evening draft.
Garden chairs with lower back like BRAVA or IBIS have a more elegant impression and can be easier to store and move around.
STACKABLE CHAIRS OR FOLDING CHAIRS?
You also must ask yourself where you want to keep the chairs when not in use. Do you have a shed or garage where you will be keeping them sheltered in the off-season? In that case, patio stackable chairs are ideal, because they don’t take up too much room when stacked.
Patio folding chairs also are also great for space saving: use them when you need a dining chair or a place to relax, and fold for easy storing once not in use. Leaned up against the garden table or a wall they take up little space and they are easy to fold out once you are ready to use them again.
DON’T FORGET THE GARDEN CUSHIONS
Last but not least, you should make sure that you and your guest can be warm and comfy using your new garden chairs. Outdoor chair cushions that fit the chairs provide a warm and soft seating, and if you accessorize with some throws, you are well prepared for long and enjoyable summer evenings.
