Do you have an old back porch, old patio, or even an abandoned fishing hut that is in need of a new look? If so, you are certainly going to want to consider the possibility of adding a new accent piece such as a table, chair, or bench into your landscaping, but if you are thinking about starting from scratch with your outdoor furniture pieces, you might be wondering what types of choices you have for designing a unique decking idea.
It is true that you can construct any type of furniture out of a wide variety of materials, including metal, wrought iron, plastic, and wood, but what will you consider the best material for constructing a wooden wood bench, chair, or stool? This is going to depend largely on the budget you have available for constructing your design. You can also consider whether you want to build the bench or outdoor seating area yourself or hire a contractor to do the work for you.
One popular design for a new outdoor area has benches and chairs surrounded by bamboo reeds or other plants. While this is a stunning design option, some people are afraid that a wooden bench would be unsightly when it gets wet. Fortunately, there are several different styles of new garden furniture that are specifically made to withstand the water from rain, swimming pool spray, and even splashing out of a patio’s pool.
While bamboo is an environmentally friendly choice for garden furniture, not all of us enjoy walking through a garden that has been disturbed by guests leaving water marks on it, or even people sitting on it. In order to design an appealing outdoor seating area, you need to consider the benches you will use to accent your garden. There are many different designs to choose from, ranging from modern to retro and everything in between.
In addition to the simple, utilitarian bench, a small garden design can include a lawn chair or lounge chair. These items would not be quite as attractive with the additional accessory of a wooden bench placed near them, but it would still add a bit of elegance to your backyard design. If you choose to create a small space in your garden, the lounge chair or lawn chair are ideal, because they require very little maintenance, and you could probably leave one set in the sun for months without needing to worry about replacing it.
If you do not have the budget for an elegant new decking piece but still want a unique design for your garden, you might consider a new outdoor seating area made entirely of plastic. Instead of wood, a set of plastic chairs and a few plastic patio swings are all you need to complete the look.
Aside from plastic, if you are looking for a more traditional, upscale look, you could add a leather chaise lounge or sectional to your small garden design. This would be a more costly addition, but for those who cannot afford the expense of a large piece of furniture, it is a simple and stylish solution. You could also consider putting a fire pit or an outdoor hot tub in the same space as the plastic chairs, just to make sure that your style doesn’t go stale.
When you are considering new additions to your backyard design, remember that these pieces can make or break your entire design. Take your time, think carefully, and use a few different styles to give your yard and patio a unique look.
