Possibly the most essential part of any decor around the outside pool is the furniture that is chosen. The best options are to choose furniture that can withstand the effects of rain, sun and wind. Unless you are willing to pack away the entire furniture set you want something that can withstand the elements. Sealed wicker is an exceptional choice as is sealed wood of various types. There are also man-made materials such as a variety of plastics that are suitable for poolside and patio use. Weatherproof cushions are also available in a variety of styles.
When it comes to relaxing recliners are perfect for taking in the sun. However, for those who prefer a more formal, but relaxed approach then the choice of outdoor sofas and sectionals can provide exactly the right ambiance.
If you really want your seating to give an extra vibrancy to your poolside, then go for bright tropical colors when it comes to cushions. Floral accents and modern striping lends an air of sophistication and fun and lifts even the drabbest of outdoor areas to a new level, bringing a smile to anyone spending time there.
However, elevating the poolside area to the next level need not cost an arm and a leg.
Firstly, it can be all about timing. If you’re looking to give your outdoor space around the pool a bit of a life, wait until after the big sale days (in America think Fourth of July). It’s at these times that you can pick up incredible bargains from big box retailers.
A tried and proven idea for bringing warmth to the poolside when hosting evening get together is to use candles. Large candles cast a warming glow over proceedings and need not break the bank. If you live in a region where night insects are a problem consider citronella candles, they not only look fantastic, but they also smell spectacular and keep mosquitoes and other annoyances at bay.
