The space that you plan to furnish can also dictate the style and materials you eventually select.  Is the area covered, are you planning an ‘outdoor room’ arrangement or finding suitable outdoor furniture design ideas for a dramatic sunken area in your garden?

   Outdoor furniture ranges from traditional classical seating and comfortable lounging units to more adventurous furniture that might make artistic sculptural statements.  In addition to places to sit and lounge you will want to include tables into your outdoor furniture design scheme, after all you will need somewhere to put your ice cold G&T while you are relaxing.  In addition do you need sun parasols or canopies to provide welcome shelter from the heat of the summer sun?  Maybe you would like to create an area for all weathers, in which case, you might decide to include a stylish outdoor heater into your design scheme, this will enable you to maximize the use of your garden even on chilly days and evenings.

In the same way that you can enliven or alter an interior design scheme, use bright accessories to add life or change the mood of your outdoor furniture design idea. A collection of ceramic pots with a range of mature foliate plants will compliment your outdoor furniture and provide texture, movement and a fresh appeal to the area.  Don’t despair if you don’t have a large garden, you can create a stunning furnished area on a balcony or small patio, just be selective and opt for one or two good designs and avoid cluttering the space with too many items.

Whatever outdoor space you have available, make the most of it, select an outdoor furniture design idea that suits you then just lie back and enjoy the fresh air.
