Tips for choosing the best outdoor and pool furniture

Great outdoor pool furniture should be both comfortable and functional. With relaxing chairs and the right setup, even a basic patio area can be transformed into a perfect oasis to spend your summer days. With the right choice of furniture, even small gardens and balconies will make you want to spend more time outside.

When setting up your outdoor area, planning is the first step. Here are a few tips on choosing your outdoor and pool furniture.

1. Plan what you will use your outdoor furniture for

Is it more of a space for relaxing with friends and family? Or do you plan to host parties in the area? Do you plan to use it as a dining spot on warm nights? Once you understand the activities that you want to use that area for, it will be easier to plan what furniture you need, such as sun loungers, side tables, and more.

2. Think of comfort

While style is always important, you definitely want your outdoor or pool furniture to be comfortable. You also want to ensure the fabrics you choose are weather-resistant to prevent colour loss or mildew growth.

3. Look for easy-care or low-maintenance Outdoor Furniture

Your outdoor area or poolside area should be used for relaxing and enjoying your living space. You probably don’t want to spend too much time cleaning or maintaining! This is why you may prefer furniture that is easy to clean and maintain. The Fillup Club uses sun-resistant fabrics that are durable against the elements, and are easy to just wipe down and lean. You can also decorate your furniture with outdoor cushions with removable covers that can easily be cleaned.

4. Do you need to store your outdoor pool furniture?

You can increase the longevity of your outdoor furniture by storing it during the off-season. If you opt for inflatable swimming pool furniture, these are very easy to deflate and store – ready for the next use.


5. Colour Matching

In a previous article, we talked about various neutral colour palettes to complement your outdoors. Aside from that, you can also opt for colours that match with the rest of your outdoor area.

6. Invest in Quality Outdoor Pool Furniture

Quality furniture will last longer, and end up costing you less than inferior quality that may need to be replaced more often. Shop with care when making larger purchases. When working within a specific budget, plan to spend more on the items that you think you’ll use the most – like daybeds or easy chairs, and being more saving on less-used items such as side tables or pillows.

7. Add Rugs for Colour and Style

An all-weather rug is a lovely addition to your patio furniture. Ensure that you choose one that is rated for outdoor use, then find a pattern or colour that complements the rest of the area.
