Choosing The Best Furniture To Put Poolside

Having a luxurious swimming pool is such a privilege and one that comes with so many benefits, it is such a wonderful indulgence. Even when you are not actually using the pool itself, being in its immediate environment is so relaxing, especially when paired with luxury garden loungers. A summer in the UK means that your luxury patio furniture is in constant use, so it is important to find furniture which accentuates and compliments this very special space.

Loungers
For those long sunny afternoons, luxury garden loungers are a must for any pool, but the choice is endless. So, what is the most important consideration for the loungers? Is it for looks that complement the space? Durability? Robustness or comfort? Are they easily movable to follow the sun? Luxury garden loungers have traditionally been made in hard woods or plastic. Wooden loungers are initially robust but not very comfortable, whilst plastic loungers are more comfortable but don’t look very smart and are environmentally unsustainable. An Oxley’s aluminium lounger is made with one thought in mind, how to create the maximum blissful comfort possible. The deep filled cushions allow you to lie back in comfort all day long if you so desire. They are also made completely to our customers specification of frame and cushion fabric so are built for the environment in which they will reside.

Sofas and Lounge Chairs
When not embracing the sun on a luxury garden lounger, it is good to have other comfortable furniture on which to chat with friends and family whilst watching the activities taking place in the pool Sofas and lounge chairs are a great addition to any outdoor space, providing a plethora of comfortable seating options. The placement of these items around the pool in terms of proximity and spacing can vary considerably so it is advisable to have furniture that can be easily moved. Sofas and lounge chair combinations in effect allow you to create an outdoor living room, providing the comfort of indoors by the pool. Complimented by low level tables and drinks trolley’s these areas can be used at all times of the day.

Furniture material
Your outdoor furniture should be maintenance free all year round. Being by the pool has the added difficulty of coping with the effects of chlorine, both in the atmosphere and in splashed water. But if you want to be able to leave your furniture outside all year and not have to worry about freshening it up or providing constant maintenance. High quality aluminium outdoor furniture allows you to leave your sets poolside all year long and they will look just as good as when you first bought them. Luxury aluminium garden furniture is a fantastic choice as it is completely maintenance free and allows for some truly beautiful designs, through intricate casting not available in other materials.

Poolside cushions
Comfort is key when it comes to poolside furniture and therefore the quality and depth of your cushions is one of the most important considerations. Whether the cushions are going on your lounger or your sofa it is probably the cushions that you, your family and your guests are going to be most aware of. Consider the texture of the material, is it hard as outdoor fabric was traditionally? Ok for wet swimming costumes but no good for relaxing. Outdoor fabrics come with a vast variety of textures and “give” and are usually the most visual aspect of the furniture, as on poolside furniture they are normally large items. As well as choosing cushions on comfort and visual appeal the practicalities are equally important. Are they waterproof, resistant to UV light and chlorine proof? Outdoor cushions allow you to experiment with colour, patterns and textures but they must also be practical and comfortable.

Choosing the right furniture for your pool is difficult as there is so much choice. Deciding which of these considerations is most important should help the process. Whether you opt for a luxury garden lounger or a sofa set, it is sure to lead to many happy poolside days.
