Consider getting benches that will serve two purposes, i.e. sitting and for storage. You can store in your extra pillows, garden tools, pool supplies etc.

You can also set built-in benches that can be complemented with contemporary grills for beauty as well as privacy.

Add Wheels

Wheels make work easier, especially when you need to move the chairs or porches to a different place.

For instance, when the sun changes into the other side, you might want to reposition your poolside furniture. And wheeling them makes the job quicker. Consider using casters with brakes for control.

Wicker Furniture

Wicker furniture is ideal for outdoor space because it’s light and well aerated. Synthetic wicker is the most appropriate for your outdoor space even though it’s a little expensive than the natural one. 

It is made from moisture-resistant resins and anti-rust aluminum frames. This means that it can withstand harsh weather conditions and elements, while natural wicker cannot.

Upgrade With Wrought-Iron

Furniture made of wrought or cast iron can be stunning and fancy. Having them in your backyard can improve the overall look.

Wrought Iron is weather-resistant; you only need to keep maintaining them. Paint immediately if the paint chips to avoid rusting.

Cedar Seating

Cedar furniture can be suitable for your outdoor space because of its durability and resistance to insects and harsh weather climates. Examples of these include the Northern White Cedar and the Western Red Cedar.

If left unattended, the furniture can start changing colour to a silver-grey. To avoid this, frequently treat it with mildewcide and water repellent additives.

Bistro Set

Another added advantage is its portability. They are light and can be easily carried back and forth to whatever place you want; also, they do not take much space.

Sparkle up your furniture with Paint

You can even decide to change the color for a different look if you wish, but black remains a classic color most especially to wrought furniture. 

And of course, you wouldn’t want to wear new shoes with dirty feet, therefore after painting, consider changing cushions for a completely new look.
