HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT PATIO CHAIRS

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 BACKREST OR SHORT BACKREST?

Do you enjoy long dinners in each other’s company? In that case, it is extra important that the garden chairs are comfortable. A high backrest provides full back support and can protect you and your guests from a chilly evening draft.

Garden chairs with shorter backrests have a more elegant impression and can be easier to move around.

GARDEN STACKING CHAIRS OR GARDEN RECLINER CHAIRS?

You also must ask yourself where you want to keep the chairs when they are not in use. Do you have a shed where you can keep them sheltered from the bad weather? In that case, garden stacking chairs are ideal, because they don’t take up too much room when stacked.

Garden recliner chairs also are also space saving: They are two-in-one because you can use them in their upright position as a dining chair or relax in them when they are in their reclined position. Leaned up against the garden table or a wall they take up only a 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 accessorise with some throws, you are well prepared for long and enjoyable summer evenings.
