Have you already caught the spring fever? Now that the sun is coming out more and more often, it is tempting to sit in the backyard again. A comfortable lounge set should not be missing! Yet it remains difficult to choose the right set for your garden. The range is so large that you quickly lose the overview. Should you buy a dining set or would a corner lounge set better suit your needs? To make the search for the perfect lounge set a little easier, below is a handy step-by-step plan.
Measure the terrace
You can’t start the search without measuring the terrace. The more accurate the better. This way you can prevent a bad purchase. Also think about the position of the set and possibly the model of the lounge sofa. For example, take into account the location of the door and the walking route in the garden.
Determine the function of the lounge set
What will be the most important function of your lounge set? If you mainly want to use it to relax and have a drink, a standard lounge set is a good choice. If you also want to be able to have lunch and dinner comfortably on the terrace, a lounge dining set is a better option. This seating furniture is a bit higher and the set comes with a matching dining table. A standard lounge set is quite low and also has a low coffee table.
Choose the number of seats
Check how many seats you need. Is one corner sofa with 3 places sufficient or do you have to add separate lounge chairs? It is often smart to at least purchase a matching footstool. You can use this as a footstool, but also as an extra seat when visitors come over. Or remove the cushion from the ottoman to create an extra side table. Super handy!
Compare various materials
As soon as you have a good idea of the model and size of the lounge set, you can start looking at the materials. The use of materials affects both the appearance and the maintenance. Wooden garden furniture is super attractive, but requires the necessary maintenance. For example, a lounge set made of wicker or aluminum is much easier to keep clean. It just depends on what you prefer.
Experience the comfort
The most important aspect of a good lounge set is comfort. So take the time to experience the comfort for yourself. Visit a showroom or garden center where you can ‘test’. The set that fits best is the winner!
