5 Tips On How To Place Furniture Outdoors

One of the major ways to relax after a long day is to chill out on your favourite chair in the backyard, perhaps with a book. Or maybe a relaxing weekend spent sitting outside, on a good Saturday morning, with your whole family gathered about, catching up, perhaps a dog or a cat chasing a ball. Or the dog is chasing the cat.

Now that we established the why, let us deep-dive into the how part of this blog.

As you might have guessed it by now, of course you can place it as you see fit, and maybe you already have a specific pattern in mind. But if you don’t, & you are a little bit curious about how to place it outside, here are a few ways you can.

1. Choose a “Shady” area:

The first step is always an extremely important one. Nothing dampens your “Me Time” more than an unexpected glare of the Sun or a sudden downpour of rain, or maybe a meteor crashing down to earth (with everything going on, that wouldn’t exactly be out of place).

So, it is necessary to choose a seating arrangement with ample shade to avoid any surprise(s). The best type of furniture here would be a garden table and a couple of comfy chairs.

2. Make sure the area is “Lit.”:

Another critical factor is to make sure that the area has sufficient lighting.

Now it might sound contradictory to the first point, but there is a sweet spot for everything.

Not in some corner of darkness where ‘even light dare not enter’ and not in an area where it’s ‘lit up like a Christmas tree’, but maybe a spot where the Sun would not hit right on top of your head. It should be cool/sheltered enough to ensure a pleasant day of relaxation. Yet bright enough to read a book while surrounded by your garden table and chairs, without creating any permanent damage to your eyes due to insufficient lighting.

3. Add more ‘Mini Furniture’ to the party:

The aim of a patio arrangement is “Comfort’. And to achieve the maximum comfort level, adding accessories is extremely important, maybe the balcony table and chairs.

It can be something as big as a huge round dining table for the whole family to gather around and eat or gossip or argue. Or it can even be something small as a coffee table right next to your favourite lawn chair so you can have a cup of coffee while reading a book or watching the sunset while contemplating the endless mysteries of life.

4. Recognize the goal of your patio, short term or long term:

If you plan on having a permanent seating arrangement in a sweet spot, then you can certainly use whatever furniture you have at your disposal or your favourite ones.

But if it is for temporary use, maybe a party or a family get together or something similar then the best bet is to use light and easily removable/foldable chairs and tables and accessories that can be moved to and from with ease.

5. Find your perfect setting:

At the end of the day, the one who makes the furniture special is YOU. Arrange the furniture in a way that is comfortable for you. That’s it. Be it a garden table and chairs or even a balcony table and chairs. It doesn’t necessarily have to be as per any order. You can get started to have that patio arrangement you always dreamed about and utilize the most out of the space at your disposal.
