Outdoor furniture is a great way to enhance your outdoor space. As well as providing you and your family with additional space to relax, outdoor furniture such as sofas, dining sets and shades like pergolas will also often enhance the aesthetics of your garden. With this in mind, keeping furniture in the best condition is incredibly important if you’re to make the most out of it. This is particularly the case during the winter months when you’re using your furniture less and the harsh elements might be taking their toll.
There are a number of things you can do to ensure your outdoor furniture remains in the very best condition and ready to use when you need it. This includes using outdoor furniture accessories. In this article, the team here at LifestyleGarden® have highlighted some of the best outdoor furniture accessories you should consider.
While outdoor furniture storage is perhaps the best way to protect your outdoor amenities, this is not always possible. If indoor furniture storage isn’t an option for you, then consider investing in high-quality furniture covers.
At LifestyleGarden®, we can provide you with a whole host of furniture cover options that are suitable for all weather. This means during wet or cold weather, you can rest assured that your furniture is well protected.
For outdoor sofas or other seating options, we can even provide you with cushion storage bags.
If you have outdoor decking or wooden furniture, over time it’s normal for it to become worn, damaged or just not looking quite the same as when it was new.
Wood protectors are a great way to restore your wooden furniture to its former glory. The wood protectors that we provide here at LifestyleGarden® are non-hazardous, eco-friendly and contain ingredients that are specifically formulated to create a brighter look.
Touch up paint
Any outdoor furnishings may also experience damage or wear and tear over time. From minor scratches to damage to the aluminium frames, these types of blemishes can get worse during the winter months.
Using accessories such as touch up paint can help to restore the finish on your outdoor products.
Preparing your outdoor furniture for winter
In addition to the fantastic outdoor furniture accessories listed above, there are a number of other things you can do to prepare your outdoor elements for the winter months.
- Clean your furniture – Before the harsh cold temperatures arrive, take a bit of time to clean your outdoor furniture. Remove any leaves, dirt or debris that may have formed. This will mean your furniture is in the best possible state to cope with the winter months.
- Consider storage options – As mentioned earlier, storing your furniture in places like sheds, garages or even in the home if you have the space is the best way to protect it.
- Remove cushions and fabric – If you can’t store all your furniture indoors, if it has removable fabrics like cushions, you can at least provide them with indoor storage. Keep them in a dry, cool place. This will stop them from getting blown away and damaged if the wind picks up.
- Monitor during the winter – As the winter months progress, make sure to periodically check your furniture to ensure no issues have occurred with moisture or pests.
