Summer is right around the corner, and what better way to enjoy your garden than with some new outdoor furniture? You have an abundance of options with garden furniture, including size, materials, heights, and functionality. To help you choose, we’ve broken down the different outdoor furniture types and some additional tips to think about.

Lounge sets vs. dining sets

Are you the more formal or informal hosts? Will you still eat inside or have a full sit-down dinner outside? These are some of the questions to ask yourself because while it’s nice to have an outdoor dining set, it might be better to just have a lounge set.

This way you can use it when you relax with the Sunday paper and a cuppa, and also for informal pre-dinner drinks before you head inside to sit for mains during a dinner party.

These sets will normally be delivered as flat packs, but you can help the time fly by, by getting an Airtasker to help with the furniture assembly.

Outdoor daybeds

Daybeds are great for limited space in pool areas or chill-out zones in smaller backyards. There are a few types that you can get depending on your styling e.g. cabana style, pod sofas, or canopy daybeds.
