Large courtyard, wooden terrace at the edge of the house, or garden with a swimming pool, whatever the size of your exterior, the same question arises: how to best arrange your garden furniture? By choosing the right furniture, harmonious colors that suit you, and taking into account the available space, you can create a real paradise behind your home. Here are some tips for successful outdoor landscaping of your garden furniture.
Outdoor garden furniture on a wooden terrace
A true extension of the house, your wooden terrace is a privileged place of welcome, especially in summer. It must therefore be well equipped. This requires a thoughtful selection of the garden furniture that will dress it, but also an in-depth reflection on the exterior layout, and the taking into account of external factors.
Patio design: when size matters
To properly install a garden furniture including a table and four chairs, we consider that it takes 5 to 10 m² of surface. This surface must be larger if you want to add poufs, additional armchairs or even deckchairs to your garden furniture. Taking into account the available surface will allow you subsequently an outdoor arrangement of airy garden furniture, around which you can easily circulate.
Indeed, it is essential to think about the space of circulation between and around the furniture upstream of the external arrangement of garden furniture. You don’t want to have any difficulty maneuvering around your new corner of paradise under any circumstances.
The sun: friend or foe?
Sunshine is the first criterion that comes into play when setting up the outdoor garden furniture. While sunbathing and dining in the sun can be very pleasant, it is always necessary to be able to create a corner of shade. A pergola, a tree, a shade sail, blinds or a deported parasol will therefore be your best friends to create a shaded area in due time. Also note that depending on the materials used for the manufacture of your garden furniture such as sofas and rattan furniture, the sun can alter its color, appearance and longevity. Braided resin is the big winner in outdoor garden furniture, thanks to its high resistance to sun and rain and the low maintenance it requires.
The terraces covered with an aluminum, wooden or bioclimatic pergola are more accepting of the materials of your garden furniture. Indeed, they allow you to protect your furniture from weather hazards, both sun and rain.
Optimizing your outdoor garden furniture layout
If the size of your exterior allows it, do not hesitate to define specific spaces to develop. A dining area with a large dining table and chairs, a relax area with armchairs, a garden sofa and a small coffee table, or a space for sunbathing, with deckchairs, parasols and garden cushions.
If the space of your terrace or your garden is limited, why not prefer modular garden furniture. You can also turn to folding garden furniture, such as lounge chairs, a wooden table or folding chairs.
Add decoration for a warm and trendy outdoor garden furniture layout
Your patio or garden is the perfect place to entertain your friends and family outdoors. If the choice of garden furniture is more than important, the addition of decorative elements is just as important.
You can add some garden cushions to bring a cozy touch to your exterior. To further delimit the spaces within your terrace, you can opt for an outdoor rug. Rot-proof, waterproof and UV-resistant, outdoor rugs are available in different patterns, sizes and colors, to suit all tastes. They help to harmonize everything, and bring a cozy side to your outdoor garden furniture. Finally, light garlands, small mirrors, designer flowerpots or even pebbles will give a nice personal touch and will enhance your outdoor garden furniture.
