Sitting outside and enjoying an evening BBQ is certainly out of the question at this time of the year. However, now is the perfect time to invest in new outdoor furniture and take advantage of the huge winter stocktake savings.

Outdoor furniture should be comfortable, yet practical. Try to keep in mind the frequency of use when deciding on how much to spend. Plastic outdoor furniture is both inexpensive and weatherproof. It’s also comes in a wide range of colours and styles. The major drawback is its light weight construction which makes it easy to fall over and move around the backyard if the weather turns nasty.

Powder coated cast aluminium outdoor furniture has become a popular choice for many households. It is more expensive than plastic but will still not break the bank. There is a wide range of designs often featuring other materials in the construction such as glass top tables. Good quality aluminium furniture will also weather nicely providing many years of enjoyment. Researching the options and various price differences is a good idea when considering aluminium.

Another hugely popular choice in outdoor furniture is wood. Timber is the most expensive type of outdoor furniture but it wears better than all other types when properly cared for. Many stores sell individual pieces such as swings, chairs, garden benches, etc, but sets and individual pieces can also be custom ordered to perfectly suit your home and garden space. Timber is also timeless and suits most property types from period homes to ultra modern abodes. Like all good outdoor furniture, timber pieces should be stored away over the cooler months and given a thorough clean and oiling before appearing again in spring.
