Garden lounges

Creating a living room in your garden means not only being able to live it fully and create a functional space, but also to give an aesthetic value to the garden itself.
Even a small garden, with the right choices, can become an excellent area for relaxation and fun. The ideal choice is to recreate a real small living room immersed in the greenery, to accommodate even friends in relaxation.
The choice for the creation of these small oases of rest is wide both from the compositional and aesthetic point of view, the ideal would be to have a table with chairs, a upholstered bench, it would not hurt even a roof like a gazebo or an umbrella and not to be underestimated, finally, a good lighting system, to enjoy relaxation even in the evening hours.
Big gardens and large living rooms are not compulsory, just knowing how to choose comfortable, functional and original furnishing elements.
If it is not possible to place a chaise longue because the dimensions do not allow it, it will be enough to find a sufficient space to accommodate a rocking chair, an armchair or even a bench.
In short, the solutions are endless, for those who have a lot of space the presence of a nice barbecue, an outdoor kitchen and maybe a platform on which to place all the elements would be excellent, so as to live the outdoor space well even when the ground or grass is wet or wet.
Everything depends on the taste, therefore, and the budget we have available, but in any case a comfortable and aesthetically beautiful solution always exists.
The fundamental criterion to be taken into consideration when purchasing our garden furniture is undoubtedly the functionality. The possibility of an effective use of what we buy must be considered.
The construction material is a feature to be examined immediately afterwards. If we want to create a living room in our garden, we are aware that they are all objects that will have to be constantly exposed to the open air and to various climatic conditions. Therefore they must be very resistant so that they can last over time, in addition some materials need special care and more accurate maintenance and therefore we must be prepared beforehand on the characteristics of all the possible materials to choose.


Many materials can be considered, the most widespread are bamboo and wicker which, being compact, do not require much maintenance except normal cleaning. Aluminum is very popular and appreciated because it is resistant and very robust and provides a very special touch to the garden. We can also find garden furniture in iron that will naturally be treated with anti-rust products and then painted.
Anyone wishing to give their outdoor living room an ethnic or exotic style can opt for rattan, which however needs a little more accurate maintenance. Being a vegetable fiber, if it is not previously treated with isolated materials and then properly maintained and repaired it can be damaged and sustain irreparable damage. Synthetic rattan will aesthetically have the same effect but will guarantee much more fiber resistance.
The crocus, aquatic hyacinth and banana leaf furnishings are also beautiful, all completely natural materials. We can also suggest that iron and wood are very suited to the external furnishings of houses located in the countryside or at least in very large gardens.
Plastic and aluminum, which are also much cheaper than other materials, can be perfect for small spaces, for terraces or gardens in support of very modern houses.
Finally, bamboo, teak and lacquered materials are good for beds, chairs, tables and benches in any room.

Functionality and duration of furniture

The aesthetic aspect is important for the choice of the furnishing elements that will make up our corner of relaxation, but even more fundamental it is to choose based on the ease of cleaning and also the ease of transporting these objects to a more sheltered area. that the bad weather of the cold seasons does not cause too much damage to the structures. The garden furniture is not renewed every time, when this type of expense is supported, it is also hoped that the items we buy last a long time.
If we have to buy a gazebo or a pergola, it is good practice to make sure and inform us that the towel, once worn, can be replaced without, therefore, having to necessarily buy back the entire structure.

Choice of details

The finishes are what will make our living room in the garden even more unique.
For example, the cushions for the chairs or the sofas must all be combined or at least coordinated, in addition they could also be combined with a tablecloth, perhaps in plastic because it will be more functional, to be placed above the table. The most suitable patterns for gardens are the classic and rustic squares or floral patterns.
Candles are the inevitable details. You can buy some to place on the ground and others to put on the table, maybe even as a center table. Alternatively, a vase of flowers or a beautiful plant will be fine. Insert the candles in the candle holders as a precaution to choose from combined with the rest of the furniture.
As a final and very special touch, you can enrich it all with lanterns or torches on the ground that will be very useful during your evenings with friends and will provide your garden with a very special and suggestive atmosphere.
Finally, if you also have a gazebo, you could finish it with side curtains so as to give romance to your corner of relaxation; the most appropriate colors can be those warm like red and orange, but also very light and relaxing colors.
