Garden furniture guide

Looking for some new outdoor seating? Here’s how to turn your garden or patio into the best seats outside of the house.

Tables and chairs

Go al-fresco with family and friends. A table and chairs set is the most popular choice for turning your patio into a sunny social spot.

You’ve also got a few options to choose from, whether it’s wooden, modern rattan-effect, or hard-wearing metal. Remember to measure up beforehand to make sure it’ll fit, and to consider how many chairs you’re likely to need.

Some sets even come with a sofa, or comfy cushioned chairs for even more luxury lounging.

Bistro sets

Perfect for an intimate patio setting. These sets tend to be just for two, providing a spot to sun-it-up as a couple, read a book and unwind outside.

They are also a top space saver, and a great fit for the smaller spaces in your garden or patio.

Garden bars

Caring for your garden furniture

How to take care of rattan effect garden furniture

Rattan-effect is much loved for its stylish nature. It works indoors in a conservatory, or outdoors on the patio and is both durable and reasonably lightweight.

Due to its durable nature, rattan-effect garden furniture can be kept outside all-year round. To clean or remove stains, use a damp cloth or hot soapy water, but avoid using chemical or abrasive cleaners.

Any cushions or fabric add-ons should be kept inside in the winter.

How to take care of wooden garden furniture

Wooden garden furniture is a classic choice – great for patios and gardens alike. It offers durability and a natural look. They don’t retain heat, meaning your table and chairs won’t get too hot in the height of summer.

Wooden garden sets require a little maintenance and care. You should clean them with a damp cloth or hot soapy water, and use an oil treatment once a year to help them maintain their condition and durability.

How to take care of metal garden furniture

Metal is a sturdy and low maintenance choice. It can be heavier than other options, but it should also last a long time.

Most sets are rust resistant and they should be cleaned with hot soapy water or a damp cloth – although avoid using chemical or abrasive cleaners. You could also use a pressure washer on a low setting.

Regular dusting with a dry cloth will keep your product clean and a damp cloth and washing up liquid should remove any stains. Avoid using abrasive cleaners or chemicals.
