Why Outdoor Furniture Doesn’t Have to be Boring

If you are designing the outdoor areas of your home, and are telling yourself that you don’t want the standard Al fresco furniture sets, you aren’t alone. Many property owners want that their home and their gardens and yards look unique and arresting. And very frankly, this is something you can easily achieve. Today, there is a wide range of options to choose from and you can create the unique look you want, on your deck, patio or poolscape.


Ideas to Enhance your Outdoor Design

All it needs is a little bit of creativity and a certain amount of research ability, to look around for unique furniture pieces that will enhance the appeal of your home. Here are a few ideas you can incorporate into your outdoor design to create drama in that space:

#1 Add a few Adirondack chairs

While outdoor furniture trends ebb and tide, there are some that sustain; and the Adirondack chair is one piece of outdoor furniture that has been able to hold its own, over the decades. You can create a unique look by painting it in bright, bold colours. The USP of this chair is that it’s made of high-density polyethylene, with commercial grade SS hardware. It’s weather-resistant and low maintenance too. You have the option to add colourful cushions that have been upholstered with weather-resistant fabric.

#2 Place a few rockers on the deck

These are essentially a mix of rocking chairs and hammocks. You will find ones made from poly-lumber (recycled materials). It’s a great way to create a comfortable and charming setting, with eco-friendly materials.

#3 Flexible outdoor seating spaces

Who said you have to opt for the conventional café-style sets or even the loungers. If you have a compact outdoor space, you can easily place large hand-tufted and tailored cushions there. These look very much like classic vintage French mattresses and can be upholstered in Sunbrella fabric. Since they aren’t really part of furniture set, you have the flexibility to place them the way you like.

They are portable and flexible and help create a very spacious look in the tightest of spaces. The beauty of these types of cushions is that you can stack them one on top of the other, to create high-seating spots and when you have more guests, just unstack them and create more seating space.

#4 Lounge chairs

These are the perfect addition to decks and pool areas. If you prefer an uncluttered look with clean lines, you can purchase comfortable aluminium framework lounge chairs. Pick ones that have a synthetic weave as the material resists cracking and fading.


Go DIY

If you want something totally unique, you can create DIY furniture from just about anything in your home. You can use large pots and place glass tops on them to create unique-looking patio tables. You could paint old crates and stand them vertically, turning them into smaller side tables. Use hollow concrete blocks and place recycled wood planks in one corner of your patio.

Place a cushioned seat, add some throw pillows for comfort and you have a stunning outdoor space that is styled uniquely too. Rolling coolers made out of old ottomans that you had stowed away in your garage, pallet tables and chairs- the choice is truly endless.
