Pool furniture is a key component of your overall pool style and comfort. That is why picking the right pieces is so important. But how do you ensure you are getting the pieces that are right for you? Think about these 4 factors!

4 things to look at with your pool furniture

 

1. Fabric

The fabric will affect how long your pool furniture lasts and how it looks over the years. Go for a durable fabric that is waterproof and stain resistant. Consider something that won’t fade or crack with constant sun exposure. You also want to select fabric that dries quickly as it is sure to get water on it!

2. Weight

Over time, you will likely want to rearrange your furniture. You may want to pull it over to the pool or arrange your seating differently if you are having guests over. In order to be easily able to do that, you will need lightweight pieces. Try lifting the pieces you are looking at. If you cannot move the pieces, you might want to choose something else.

3. Storage

Do you have space to store your furniture indoors in the off-season? If not, your pool furniture will probably be outdoors all year long. That means it has to stand up to the climate in your area. To store your furniture outside year round there are a few more things you need to consider. Will you cover it? If so, does it come with covers or do you have to purchase these separately? Are there removable cushions? If so, where will you keep these?

There is also the issue of internal storage. Pools tend to have a lot of accessories and toys. You may also want outdoor plates, glasses, and more available outside for entertaining. If that is the case, you may want to look for pool furniture that has built-in storage.

4. Quality

Quality is always a key factor to consider. While more expensive pieces are a bigger output at the start, they tend to be higher quality and will last you longer. Cheap pieces may be available at a deal, but may not hold up to wear and tear.

Looking to balance price and quality? Do not focus on brand names. Often, you can end up paying more for the name. Instead, take a look at smaller companies or individual designers who are known for their quality work.
