If you’re looking to buy patio furniture and accessories this year — think comfort! And this shouldn’t be hard to do as most outdoor furniture manufacturers are creating comfortable pieces, similar to indoor furniture.
Favorite features such as “deep seating” and “plush cushions” make sofas, chairs and love seats so much more comfortable than a decade ago. The idea now is to lounge-away and enjoy life outdoors.
Want a comfortable outdoor kitchen? You can buy just about any interior kitchen appliance for your outdoor kitchen. These include wine fridge, dishwasher, sink, warming tray, television, refrigerator, built-in grill, fan and more. Just make sure that it is designed for outdoor use.
Select Comfortable Cushions
Forget the cheap plastic chairs you can buy at your local hardware store. These chairs offer little comfort, and they’ll be delivered to your neighbor’s house in the next wind storm. Instead, spend more and go for lounges and chairs with lofty cushions. Buy pieces or sets that offer deep seating.
For luxury, opt for cushions with all of the bells and whistles. Advances in the manufacturing of cushions use materials such as durable vinyl, polypropylene mesh covers as well as soft, foam cushions upholstered in acrylic fabrics that feel like cotton and can withstand outdoor abuse. These fabrics are water-repellent and the cushions are quick-drying so you can leave them outside rain or shine.
Other plush options include comfortable higher priced fabrics like outdoor chenille.
As described in Outdoor Living Magazine, “it feels almost like terry cloth.” And, along with the softer custom fabrics; look for attractive detailing and luxurious tailoring.
If the idea of relaxing by the pool or drifting-off into a good book appeals to you, raise your comfort level with a lounge chair. With a great cushion this could be by far your most comfortable chair. Others: a deep seated sofa, club or Adirondack chair.
Deep seated lounge furniture such as a chaise lounge, love seat or sofa have taking the place of battered folding chairs or a decaying wicker sofa with thin cushions. People are spending more on their outdoor space because they see the value in being able to use this space more. Outdoor furniture is looking more like our indoor furniture: matching, comfortable, cushy and stylish.
Repeat the creature comforts inside your home and make for a home outdoors! Find, larger all-weather, super bright outdoor televisions for a home theater experience. Colorful outdoor rugs and lamps can help to finish off the décor for an outdoor space, much like an indoor space. Add an outdoor ceiling fan and patio heater for temperature control.
For the outdoor kitchen island, everything from a portable dishwasher, sink, wine fridge, ice maker, rotisserie grill to a warming oven are available for your outdoor space.
