How to choose garden furniture
Before purchasing, think about what kind of furniture would best suit you and your garden. Look for something low-maintenance: many of the best garden furniture options have been pre-treated before you buy them, so when it comes to how to clean them, it’s a matter of simply wiping down the frame and popping the cushion covers in the washing machine: easy!
Also, take into account how many people will be using your garden furniture and for what purpose. If it’s just you or a couple of others at home, a four-seater table set or a pair of loungers might be perfect, while if you’re likely to have guests over for meals a lot, a six-seater, eight-seater or 10-seater dining set might be preferable.
When it comes to how to protect your furniture, some manufacturers might recommend keeping it in a shed in the winter, while for others, you can simply put a cover over it when it’s not in use.
We’ve rounded up eight of our favourite garden furniture buys, from on-trend hanging rattan egg chairs to five-seater corner sofa sets that will make you feel like you live in a luxurious beach hotel.
We included items in a range of budgets, styles and sizes, so whatever you’re looking for, you’ll find it in our roundup.
