Consider how you want to use your precious outdoor space. Do you want to design an area where you can entertain with food and drinks? Do you need a space for sitting and watching the sunset? Are you looking for a place to read a book and have a cup of tea when the weather is warm? Think about the use of the space to determine the types of chairs you need. You can also plan the layout of the area so you know how big the chairs can be and how many you need. 

  1. Look at Comfort and Style 

Outdoor chairs for dining or occasional seating can be less comfortable than chairs you will spend whole evenings in. Stylish, bold iconic chairs will be ideal for a drinks party but you probably don’t want them for your kids to lounge about in. You don’t have to sacrifice style for comfort but it will affect the look and feel of the chairs you choose.

  1. Consider Storage and Care

Furniture that is left out all year and in all weather must be robust and made from all-weather materials. If you want design pieces on your patio, ensure you have a space to store your chairs when it rains or at night. If you have a compact space, think about chairs that can be folded for storage. 

  1. Consider Colour, Shade, and Accessories 

You can choose bright shades for the chairs themselves or you can accessorize neutral colored chairs with bright cushions or bold throws. Whatever you choose, you are not limited to natural colors or wood shades just because your furniture is outside.

  1. Choose Quality Every Time

You get what you pay for when you choose furniture for the outdoor space. Chairs will be subjected to the rigors of the weather so they need to be sturdy and robust. Look for furniture from trusted suppliers. Look for chairs that are made with care. Look for a chair that comes with a guarantee of craftsmanship and which will last you for years to come. 

  1. Look for Versatile Pieces

Chairs can be used outdoors for a variety of purposes, for example, a dining chair will be great for a summer barbecue but could also be used as a single chair for wildlife watching, or at an outdoor desk. A comfortable chair could be moved inside in the winter to take pride of place in the living room. You can update chairs with new cushions every season or change their look with a throw or blanket.
