When it’s time to buy new teak garden furniture, you need to work out how you use your garden. Do you host many parties, requiring a lot of seating or you do spend most of your time outside relaxing alone in privacy?
When choosing your teak outdoor furniture, of course, you want to make sure it’s durable and well-built without sacrificing comfort and style. Size matters a lot too. If you choose furniture that’s too small, you won’t spend much time using it and if it’s too large, your outdoor space will feel smaller and uncomfortable. Here are three important things to consider when choosing the size of your new teak patio furniture.
The Size of Your Outdoor Living Space
To get the proper fit for your new teak furniture, consider the size of your patio, deck, or outdoor garden space. The table you buy needs to allow enough room around it for the chairs to be pulled out comfortably and safely back. If your terrace, patio, or garden is small, it’s a good idea to go with a round table that takes up less space and which allows you to seat more people. On the other hand, if you have a lot of space to work with, you can fit in a larger rectangular table with numerous chairs.
How Much Money You Have Available
Just like with any furniture, teak garden furniture can be relatively inexpensive to buy or it can cost a whole lot. To make sure you’re not tempted to spend more money than you can afford, set a budget right away and stick to it. Once you have this figure in mind you’ll be able to eliminate some size options when shopping for teak outdoor furniture. For example, even if you have enough space available for a large teak sofa you run across in a furniture shop, if it’s outside your budget, you can skip right over it and choose a more affordable sofa instead.
What You Use Your Outdoor Space For
Do you primarily use your garden space for spending time alone or do you spend lots of time outdoors enjoying the company of family and friends? When you stop and think about what you use your garden for, you’ll know what types and sizes of teak outdoor furniture you need.
If you tend to spend most of your time in your garden alone, you can buy larger pieces of teak furniture that are roomy and comfortable like a big and comfy cushioned teak chair or sofa. On the other hand, if you entertain frequently you’ll need to have enough seating available while making sure your chairs, benches, and sofa fits comfortably into the space you have.
Size matters when buying new teak garden furniture. By considering these key points, you should be able to choose the perfect size for your new teak furniture!
