Choosing new furniture for your patio is often an exciting situation. Furniture manufacturers always come up with new ways to improve life allowing us to sit back and relax with their products. Now Imagine a very comfortable chair that is also a bed… Outdoors! What else can be more relaxing than that?
A Chaise Lounge is a chair specifically designed to help you relax. It has a reclinable backrest and an extended seat that supports your legs, in addition to sitting low to the ground with armrests that help you sit upright.
The strength and durability of any outdoor furniture rely strongly on its materials and how it was made. Chaise Lounges are no different. Plastic models require very little maintenance. Wickers are easy to clean. Wood and metals are prone to rust and corrosion when left uncared for.
Some models come with cushions or pillows. It is very likely that these cushions age faster than the chair itself, especially when left outdoors for a period of time. The reclining backrest and other adjustable parts usually come up or down to a certain degree.
A few models are noted to have wheels, some are foldable, and some can be stacked on top of one another for storage options. Your Chaise Lounge will likely be stored in a shed during winter or at some point, so it is best to consider moving and storing when purchasing.
Wood and metal models cost more than plastic chairs are more pleasing and will likely to last longer with proper care. Some plastic models, on the other hand, are cheaper but can be brittle over time when left out against the elements.
Caring for any outdoor furniture always includes storing them away from harmful outdoor elements when not in use. This is particularly true when it’s too cold to go outside for a period of time. Most manufacturers take storage options as an essential part of the design. Thus, it is important to consider storage options for these chairs before getting one.
Foldable options are most recommended for 2 to 5 lounge chairs. These take up the least foot space when folded and upright.
Another option for lighter models is stacking the units on top of one another. Depending on the material and weight of each unit, lounge chairs can be stacked more than 12 units tall at a time if made of plastic. These are the models most used by hotels and resorts.
One option for minimizing maintenance is patio furniture covers. They are most helpful when space is not available or the furniture is too heavy to move in daily. Patio furniture covers also protect your lounge chair from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet ray and other elements.
