When the weather is calm and pleasant, especially during the summertime, you would surely enjoy spending a few hours with your kids outside or perhaps throwing a summer bash. More so if you have your own swimming pool. But in order for you to do this, you need to complete your backyard makeover with some pieces of furniture.
For relaxation, it is highly recommended that you invest in some outdoor furnishing that you can utilize when you feel like lounging. Regardless if you have a tiny patio or you have the most spacious garden or backyard in the neighborhood, you can find the best lounge chairs that would suit your needs. Here are just some of them:
Rattan Garden Furniture
You can expect most, if not all, outdoor furniture to be weatherproof. So when it comes to the materials, your options are endless. I’m sure you will fall in love with a set of rattan garden furniture like the one that you can see in the image below. The colors vary, too. You will find some that come with the natural color of rattan, while others are white, dark brown, gray, and even black. You can have them custom-made as well.
One good thing about such outdoor furnishing is that they do have cushions that make you more comfortable while you sit and watch your kids play. You can take a nap on them too, without any problem at all.
Lots of homeowners invest in rattan garden furniture because they are lightweight, yet very durable. They are also UV resistant and are very easy to maintain. They look really good indoors or outdoors. And believe it or not, their cushions are waterproof!
Padded Chaise Lounge Chair
This type of chair is the most popular type of lounge chair. You see them all the time in hotels and resorts. They are a must if you have a swimming pool at home because they allow you to sunbathe comfortably. You can even sleep on them. Some come with cushions while others don’t. But if I were you, I’d opt for the padded ones because they are more comfortable to lay on.
Look at the picture below. Do you see that dome-looking sitting area? That would be an excellent addition to your backyard as well!
Wooden Lounge Chair
Now, if you want simple lounge chairs, then the wooden ones would work just fine. But when I say ‘simple’, that doesn’t mean that they are not aesthetically appealing at all. The truth is, wooden lounge chairs come in all sorts of styles. They are your best option if you are aiming to achieve a rustic or farmhouse look for your backyard.
Modern Outdoor Daybed
Personally, daybeds appeal to me the most. That’s because I love napping! 🙂 If your yard has enough space, I highly recommend that you invest in a modern-looking daybed such as the one that you can see in the picture below. Isn’t it pretty? The top is covered with fabric as well, which gives you protection against the sun. Toss in some throw pillows and your lounging space would be complete!
Teak is a wood selection that is well-known for its ability to withstand extreme weather temperatures. With this, it would be nice if you have two or three in your backyard. Or even a set! They would be perfect to sit on if you are one that loves to have afternoon tea. Or, if your home has an ocean view, it would be wonderful to sit on these chairs just enjoying the view.
If you are looking for something unique, invest in a ‘boat’ daybed. Yes, it literally looks like a boat where you can lie down for a couple of hours. Some of them are made with pliable plant materials so that right there adds to their beauty. Anything organic is attractive. It never fails to impress everyone!
This one offers a different look mainly because it is round, unlike the traditional lounge chairs out there. You can even turn this into a daybed. Oh, it’s going to be so comfy to sit on while you are enjoying the fresh air outside.
Here is another beauty that you should consider incorporating into your backyard furnishing, particularly close to the pool. It would be convenient to rest on them when you get tired of swimming.
Your options for outdoor lounging furniture can go on and on. When investing in one, make sure that you determine exactly what you need first. You also have to look at the materials used, overall appearance, and, of course, the price tag. But if you are a DIY-er, you are free to create your own.
