House Beautiful Market Square
If you’re like us, you want to spend as much time as possible outside soaking up the sun. We think now is the perfect time to revamp your outdoor layout in time for summer – after all, leave it too late and there won’t be as many choices when it comes to garden furniture and decor. Plus, being prepared means that as soon as the sun comes out, so are you.
If you’re wondering whether or not to invest in garden furniture this year, we’re here to let you know three main reasons why it’s a good idea – and why you’re guaranteed not to regret it.

Reason 1: Being outdoors makes you healthier and happier
There’s no denying that spending time outside in the fresh air is good for the mind and body. Whether you have a large garden or a small terrace to enjoy, going outside will always make you feel better. Not only does it reduce stress, improve our mood and sharpen our concentration, but it also strengthens our immune system through exposure to vitamin D, should we continue?
While being active outdoors (eg, gardening or exercising) is great, having a place to relax outdoors encourages us to stay in the fresh air for long periods of time, instead to retreat inside. Having a comfortable outdoor space to read a book or enjoy your morning cup of coffee will ensure you get to spend as much time outdoors as possible – and the more time outdoors, the better.
Reason 2: It creates the perfect entertaining space for summer
Who wants to throw a party indoors while the sky is blue outside, or invite friends over for coffee in the kitchen while the sun is shining? Not us! Summer is the season for informal entertainment, whether it’s a family barbecue or reunion with friends over a pitcher of Pimm’s.
Outdoor furniture is suitable for a multitude of social scenarios and creates a much more pleasant environment on a hot sunny day. Better yet, weather-resistant outdoor furniture can be left in place year-round, so your social season can begin as soon as the weather permits.
Reason 3: It’s an investment that lasts the test of time
Year after year, summer after summer, you’ll always want to sit outside and soak up the sun. Unlike furniture that comes and goes, such as cribs or temporary workstations, garden furniture has an ever-needed function. Not only will you be using it for many years, but the high quality garden furniture will look as good as the day you bought it for a very long time.
When it comes to rattan furniture, in particular, no special care is needed to maintain it – just cover it in winter for extra protection. Simply put, if you are spending money on anything, furniture that will give you long-lasting use that you can enjoy year after year is indeed a very good choice.
