Choosing the color of your outdoor furniture

Written by Wicker Paradise

Since buying furniture is a big investment, it is important to ensure that you buy the right furniture to suit your needs and your sense of style. Here are some tips on how to choose the right color furniture for your space.

The backdrop – Your outdoor space should sit well with your outside surroundings. This means that if you have a modern outdoor garden, it is best to look at simple furniture in clean designs. On the other hand, if you have a more traditional garden you could look at rattan furniture in traditional designs.

The color palette of your garden – Look at the colors in your garden to draw inspiration on what color furniture you should select.

The other objects in the shared space – If your garden is shared with other objects like water features, feature walls or other furniture it is a good idea to ensure that your furniture choice matches these.

The feel of the space – Get a feel for how you feel when you step into the space. Is it one that is calm and serene or one that is fun and colorful. If it is the former, neutral colors will work best, while in the case of the latter you could choose a neutral base with colorful accents. A good way to add or reduce color is by changing the color of your cushions. For outdoor furniture, it is best to choose water and UV resistant fabrics.
