Picking Your Poolside Patio Furniture

Posted on

Are you looking for the right outdoor furniture for your pool? There are special considerations you need to make to get the most out of your poolside patio furniture. Read some of them here, and shop Bistro Patio for the French outdoor furniture that will make the most out of your outdoor space.

Choosing the right cushions

One consideration that is particular important to make when it comes to poolside outdoor furniture is the cushions. The right cushion makes any patio furniture comfortable, which is essential if you want anyone to actually enjoy your outdoor space. However, there are special considerations to make with furniture that you are placing next to your pool. While most patio furniture cushions are water resistant, it is particularly important that your poolside cushions repel moisture. Additionally, cushions should encourage airflow to promote quick drying. It is also a good idea to invest in cushions that have covers so you can regularly take them off and wash them. Other factors to consider are whether or not the fabric is UV protected, and how durable it may be. Good materials for poolside patio furniture cushions include polyester, cotton duck, canvas, and acrylic.

Choosing the right frames

Additionally, you want outdoor furniture made of materials that will do well poolside. For example, when choosing metal patio furniture, it is better to opt for aluminum or stainless steel. Steel will rust, and probably at a much more rapid rate when constantly exposed to pool water. If you opt for wood pool furniture, go with furniture that is stained and sealed so it will survive under moist conditions. Additionally, because water makes everything slippery, consider how sturdy and easily moved the furniture will be. Rubber stoppers on the feet of your patio furniture can be a lifesaver.

Invest in quality

When it comes to patio furniture, poolside pieces need to be the most durable. Between chlorine, sun exposure, wind, rain, and any roughhousing from the kids, poolside outdoor furniture needs to be able to weather the elements. That is where it becomes in handy to invest in quality outdoor furniture that can take it. At Bistro Patio, we sell only the highest quality French outdoor furniture.

Install an umbrella

When you are relaxing by the pool, you don’t want to be forced indoors because the sun is too bright. A well-placed patio umbrella is the perfect poolside accessory because it allows you to stay outside for hours without the glaring sun in your face.
