Choosing the right Garden Furniture in North Wales

Once you have finished laying your patio, decking and satisfied with your lawn, you’ll be starting to think about garden furniture. By finding and purchasing garden furniture, you’ll effectively add the final pieces to your garden, which allow you to relax and enjoy time outdoors.

Many shops and online retailers such as Greenhouse Staging, an excellent company which are quite famous for their variety of Heavy Duty Green House Staging and Folding Greenhouse Staging,  do stock furniture, meaning you have various places to find what you’d like.



1 - Discover Brand New Ideas

Country Shows can provide some
very much-needed ideas 
on how to give
your garden the latest and
greatest
features possible.
The difficult part is finding what you like, so snooping around different retailers is a good idea. The vast majority of garden centres across the UK have so many displays and inspiration ideas just lying about, it would be a crime to not go out there and get some ideas. Alternatively, there are very many online resources which can allow you to see an outdoor seating area which is very close to perfect - and putting your own spin on an idea can make it unique to the needs of you and the needs of your garden.

What about getting out there and going to a country show? That can be the perfect place to go to get brand new ideas - as well as purchase them while supporting the local economy. In most country shows there are a variety of vendors which often sell bespoke, hand-crafted features to your garden which will serve as focal points for very many years to come.

However you decide to get inspiration for your garden, you should almost certainly consider what exactly you want your garden furniture to accomplish.

Do you want it for an open seating area? Maybe you’d want a certain theme to go with your garden? Or maybe you are just after something comfortable and pleasant to sit quietly in the garden? There's so very many questions that can spring to mind when you're making the perfect outdoor seating area, and it helps to plan accordingly.

On a fire afternoon why not sit outside in your garden with paper and a pen and start sketching out a plan? It never hurts to go into anything prepared, and designing the perfect patio is very true to the general rule of thumb.



2 - Plastic Doesn't Equal Cheap

These Adriondack Chairs are stunning,
Vibrant, Eco-friendly and oh so stylish.
You should consider what your budget is. There are a huge range of different types of garden furniture available and indeed, pricing varies - from absolutely insignificant, almost throwaway pieces of furniture to beautiful pieces of (almost) art.

Plastic has come a long way since the wobbly garden chairs you might remember as a child. For instance, CR Plastics has developed the must-have garden item of the year with their fabulous Adriondack Chairs. Available through select British retailers such as Greenhouse Staging, CR Plastics range of Adriondack Chairs are both stylish, and very high-end.

The beautiful thing about these beautiful chairs is of course their design. As an added bonus, these chairs are manufactured from 100% recycled plastic waste recovered from oceans, rivers and land, so you can have the knowledge that your purchase looks fantastic, and is helping make the world become a far better place.



3- Traditional Wood Benches, Tables and Chairs are Not Old Hat

For those wanting something a little more traditional, you may purchase something that winds up a little more expensive. While indeed plastic garden furniture has come on leaps and bounds within recent years, with wood, you're dealing with a time-honoured and long known fact: Wood is a precious resource, and you do tend to pay good money for garden products which are made of wood.

Saying that, wooden garden furniture is money well spent. The craftsmanship that goes into wooden products is absolutely stellar - You can get a high quality wooden oak table and chairs for example, which will look excellent and have a long and durable life, provided it is treated well.

Wooden garden furniture provides a fabulous contemporary look, and provided it is treated well and cared for, will stand the test of time in any environment while looking so very stunning. Do keep in mind that the type of wood will also hold quite a lot of sway in how your garden set ages. Look for manufacturers that provide a history of the piece going down to it's origins - as well as clear and definitive instructions on care.  



4 - Assess Your Needs Before You Buy

of tea, but somewhat unsuitable for a
 barbeque. 
If you think you may entertain groups of guests in the garden several times a year, but don’t need a large amount of furniture for your household occupants, you can always get something that suits the job for the people in the house and have a wooden or plastic chairs stored away that can come out and cater for your company.

For those warmer times of the year, you’ll need some shelter from the sun. A folding or over hanging umbrella can be stored away and easily put up to protect you and your company from the sun when it feels more punishing than pleasant.

Do you think you’d be cooking in this area? If so, would you have an area for a barbeque, hob or oven? A lot of people live in regions that are perfect for regular outdoor cooking, so this may play part on making your selection.

If it gets cold in the evenings but fancy staying outdoors, you could get a hold of some patio heaters. These work very well to keep a group of people warm, so you can stay outdoors for as long as you’d like!
