We’re all going to be glad to see the back of this particularly harsh and long winter. Instead, we can look forward to spring. We’ll be able to prepare our gardens to make the most of the upcoming warmer weather.

Purchasing a new set of garden furniture is an effective and efficient way to update the look of your garden. Whether you want a new color scheme or simply want to refresh old or broken furniture, read below for some inspirations to get you started.

Here are some ideas to help you choose your garden furniture for Spring 2021.

Bring the Indoors Outdoors

Using modern, waterproof fabrics, garden furniture has transformed in recent years. We no longer have to put up with stiff, hard chairs with cushions that you must take in every time it rains.

We can have plush, outdoor couches, vibrant rugs, and other living-room-style furniture that we can enjoy outdoors. 

Why not set up an additional lounge outdoors? Think plush seating, soft cushions, and a low table. You can purchase sail shades for elegant protection from the sun and outdoor rugs to protect your feet.

Making the Most of Your Outdoor Space

Gardens come in all shapes and sizes. Whether yours is a tiny urban garden or acres of big sprawling countryside, make sure you select the right furniture to go with it.

Small gardens will benefit from space-saving furniture. Folding chairs and tables can be stored flat when not in use.

You can buy benches that double up as storage space. There are also lots of beautiful seating options that you can hang from trees.

Large gardens can take advantage of big, corner couches. If you want to create a stunning ambience to your outdoor space, consider putting a fire pit in your backyard. Large gazebos and pergolas can also enhance the quality of your outdoor living experience while offering protection from the sun. And a family dining set will complete the mood for a complete outdoor living.

Vacation in the Garden

With so much uncertainty around when we will be able to travel again, some people are taking advantage of their backyard gardens and vacationing there to enjoy the outdoors.

For less than a cost of a summer trip, you can create a fun and relaxing summer vacation spot right in your own outdoor garden. Tents are cheap and easy to set up. Options for camping furniture are limitless.

From comfy folding double chairs to camp beds that are as cozy as the real thing, you can set up an authentic camping experience right next to your house – the kids will love it.

Brighten up the Space

It can be tough trying to find the time to invest in making a garden bloom with color. Gardens require a lot of maintenance, especially those with lots of flowers.

If your garden is looking lackluster, the easiest way to brighten it up is by investing in bright-colored furnishings. Metal or plastic chairs come in all shades.

You can mix and match with bright, cheery cushions, seat pads, rugs, and more. Decide on a color theme for a touch of elegance. Or have a whole host of shades for a more boho look.

Create a Space for Your Family

How big is your family and what do you like to do? If eating together is what you love to do each day, a wise investment might be a robust and good quality outdoor dining set.

For those who prefer to snuggle up in front of the fire, a cozy outdoor couch with a firepit could be just the right place for a glass of wine in the evening.

For families with lots of children or pets, strong, long-lasting furniture made from materials such as wood will stand the test of time. And you can clean them easily.

Plastic can be a good, affordable option, but note that it’s generally not as robust as materials such as wood or metal.

Shop Around for the Best Deals

No matter what you want from your garden furniture, it’s always a great idea to shop around for the best deals. Although the best time to shop for outdoor furniture, where you can get deepest discounts, are typically at the end of August/September, you do not have to miss out on updating your garden in time for Spring 2021.

There are lots of deals to look out for before then. With many stores closed in 2020, keep your eye out for leftover stock at bargain prices.

Memorial Day (the last Monday in May) is a key day for selling inventory at rock-bottom prices. Get the date in your diary. And ready yourself to snatch some cheap garden furniture on sale at bargain prices.

If you’re prepared to keep a close lookout for deals and sales, it will be safe to say that you will be enjoying a brand new and beautiful garden set up for Spring 2021.
