Stylish Outdoor Furniture + Maintenance Tips

This post is sponsored by Super Amart 

Spring is just around the corner and soon we will be enjoying outdoor BBQ’s, socialising outside with family and friends and relaxing around the pool.  Our outdoors is an extension of our home, the ‘outdoor room’ where we can sit, relax and enjoy the fresh air while the kids run around the backyard or swim in the pool.   

Gone are the days of simple wooden tables and chairs, now there is available a range of comfortable outdoor settings and lounges in different styles and sizes to suit your budget and outdoor room.  

Stylish outdoor furniture

I’ve teamed up with Super Amart to help show you how to re-style an outdoor area, to create a space you will enjoy spending time in this Spring. I like to add accessories, styling as I do our indoors as the feel adds to its comfort and makes it more appealing. I’ve styled our outdoor area using these products:

We can stack the setting together when not in use. The beauty is that this setting is really light and can easily be stacked on top of each other. I like the idea of curling up here comfortably with a magazine while the kids are swimming in the pool.

Outdoor cushions are made from synthetic fabrics which help the cushion dry more quickly and avoid water damage which will resist mildew.  Wash pillow covers regularly to keep them clean and fresh.  Like indoor cushions they can be washed in the washing machine.

A guide to purchasing outdoor furniture

I’ve put together a little guide to help you when you are trying to choose your next outdoor setting along with maintenance tips to help you keep it clean and looking good.

Timber

  • Hard wearing
  • If your timber setting will be outside if full sun and rain ensure it is treated so it will repel water.  
  • Teak timber is resistant to rotting, warping, shrinking and swelling

Maintenance:  It is recommended to oil some timber outdoor furniture twice a year. The oil protects the timber by reducing the damage caused by water and sunlight, preventing it from rotting.
