Looking for the best garden furniture? Finding the right outdoor seating to relax, entertain and dine alfresco will instantly update your outdoor area, and, it’s never too early to get started shopping. After all, having your garden furniture set-up sorted early will ensure you can get straight out into the fresh air as soon as the sunshine hits.
Plus, after a sell-out season last year, it’s worth investing in your outdoor space early whilst garden furniture stock levels are at their best, whether you’re in search of a timeless rattan corner sofa, a contemporary outdoor lounge set, or a space-saving dining set for a small patio.
As such we’ve rounded up the best garden furniture on the Ideal Home team’s radar, with rust and weather-resistant aluminium and hardwood options from John Lewis, Homebase, and B&Q, plus on-trend, affordable, and small-space friendly options from Habitat, Argos, and many more.
What’s the most durable outdoor furniture?
Garden furniture certainly doesn’t come cheap, so before you buy, it’s worth understanding just what you’re investing in, in terms of outdoor materials and the longevity you can expect from them.
If your budget allows, then look out for options made from lightweight and rust-resistant aluminium or weather-resistant hardwoods like teak, acacia, or eucalyptus if you want your garden furniture to weather the elements for years to come. This includes paying attention to the metal used in the frames of otherwise low-maintenance rattan-effect outdoor furniture. Powder-coated steel is a (much) cheaper alternative to aluminium, but will have less weather resistance so will need more careful storage during bad weather to prolong its lifespan.
We’ve included a range of options in our round-up, from aluminium and hardwood furniture that’s worth investing a little more cash into for its durability, to affordable powder-coated steel options that deliver good looks on a lower budget.
So, without further ado, let’s get onto our pick of the best garden furniture of the year, then all that’s left to do is fire up the BBQ, and get ready for the summer sunshine!
