As you are well aware, Texas has a very different climate than many other places in the country. Our climate is great for the outdoor enthusiast, but it can be very harmful and damaging to outdoor furniture. Whether you have a pool and spa, or you simply are looking to enhance your backyard with a great sitting area, the right furniture can make all the difference in the look and the feel of your space. There are several key things to keep in mind when choosing the best furniture and we wanted to share a few tips to help you make the best decision possible.
The color of furniture that you choose is probably going to be based on the design aesthetic that you are seeking. However, color is not always the first thing that you need to focus when looking for the best furniture. The first area to research should be the type of material used in the construction of the furniture. Low-cost materials might save you a few dollars now but will not last as long as more high-quality materials would. Looking for furniture that has metal framing will help you find the most durable types.
Secondly, the look of your space is going to be determined by the furniture that you place in it. Make sure that you have enough room to accommodate the furniture that you desire. Nothing detracts from a room more than clutter. If the room cannot hold the furniture, do not try to force it in; it will only make the space seem smaller and more congested.
Finally, the one aspect of outdoor living design that most people agonize over is the color. Color is important and it serves as a great way to pull a space together. If you are interested in a more natural vibe, stick to the browns, tans, and maybe even the deep red colors. Likewise, if you are trying to mimic an oasis, perhaps a lighter blue or green would work well for you. Always keep the finished product in mind and attempt to choose the colors that will best bring your vision into reality.
