Ah, the allure of a well-decorated outdoor space – the perfect spot for sipping on your morning coffee, enjoying a tranquil afternoon, or hosting a fun-filled BBQ party for friends and family. However, shopping for outdoor furniture can be a daunting task, especially with so many options and considerations. It's a jungle out there, and not just the one in your garden!

This season, before you get captivated by that Instagram-worthy patio set or that seemingly unbeatable discount, let's delve into some traps and hacks to be mindful of when shopping for outdoor furniture.

Traps to Avoid:

  1. Low-Quality Materials: Outdoor furniture is exposed to various elements – sunlight, rain, and in South East Queensland summer - storms. Picking furniture made from inferior quality materials can leave you with faded colors, rust, or furniture that quickly deteriorates. Ensure that the material used, be it metal, wood, or fabric, is weather-resistant and durable.

  2. Too-Good-To-Be-True Deals: An incredibly cheap set might seem like a steal, but often you get what you pay for. Such deals can be a mask for poor-quality items which might end up costing you more in replacements and repairs in the long run.

  3. Overlooking Size and Fit: Not all spaces are created equal. It's easy to fall in love with a furniture piece online or in-store, but it's vital to ensure it fits your outdoor area comfortably without crowding.

  4. Ignoring Comfort: Aesthetics are essential, but so is comfort. What's the use of having a beautiful patio set if it's uncomfortable to sit on?

Hacks to Shop Smart:

  1. Test Before You Buy: If possible, visit the store and sit on the furniture to get a feel. It's the best way to gauge comfort and quality.

  2. Check Reviews: Other customers' experiences can be a goldmine of information. Look out for mentions of durability, comfort, and any issues with the product.

  3. Think Long-Term: Investing a little more in high-quality, durable furniture might seem pricey now, but it's cost-effective in the long run.

  4. Look for Guarantees or Warranties: A warranty can be a sign of a company's confidence in its product's durability.
