Garden Furniture Trends 2021
If there is one thing that the events of the last 12 months have shown us, it is the value of having proper outdoor space. The great weather, and the stay-at-home order issued last year in March saw a huge number of families rediscovering their gardens and even experimenting with growing their own vegetables. With the situation still somewhat up in the air this year, the trend for using the garden more is likely to continue. So, if you are looking to spend more time in your garden this summer and would like to invest in some furniture that is in keeping with current garden trends, then read on to discover some of the garden furniture trends for 2021 that might catch your eye.
Garden Accessory Must-Haves
Clean lines and squared-off furniture are undoubtedly key this season. Rectangular or square tables rather than circular ones teamed with chairs with straight back and arms will carry the look of any home straight into the garden Colour-wise neutral is the big pick, and it really isn’t hard to see why. Whites, shades of grey and pale browns will blend seamlessly into the garden, offering you somewhere to relax and unwind on, hopefully, those long hot summer days.
Once the popular choice for those people with larger gardens and plenty of space, rattan garden furniture is making a comeback with those people who want to spend as much time as possible outdoors. Whether you simply want a table and chair set or prefer the idea of a more casual outdoor seating arrangement with rattan sofas and a large low table, this is the ideal choice that will perfectly set off your garden.
If you favour a more modern look inside your home, it is only natural that you would want to carry it into your garden as well.
Not everyone loves rattan when it comes to garden furniture, and that’s okay too. There are other furniture trends for 2021. Outdoor furniture that looks like indoor furniture is expected to be a real trendsetter; think deep, comfortable cushions and sleek lines. Hanging chairs and cocoons are also one of this season’s garden must-haves as people really take relaxing in their gardens to the next level of comfort.
Of course, as we plan to make more use of our gardens this year, that means being out there longer, and garden lighting is sure to be a big trend this year with people looking for clever solutions that will offer them plenty of light in the garden so that they can utilise the outdoor space for as long as possible. With an ever-increasing awareness towards the environment, expect to see solar lighting high up the list of popular choices this summer, with path lights and even table lights proving to be popular choices. Candles for your table, including citronella candles, are also likely to feature heavily this summer as people try to recreate the holiday vibe in the possible absence of foreign travel.
How to Care for Rattan Garden Furniture
- Remove loose dirt and soil from the furniture using the brush attachment on a vacuum.
- Stubborn debris can be removed with a toothbrush or cocktail stick carefully.
- Use warm soapy water to wash your rattan furniture, giving it a scrub where necessary to remove any muck, this can be done with a toothbrush in hard-to-reach areas and a soft cloth for the main body of the furniture – do not saturate your rattan furniture.
- Allow the sun to dry the furniture thoroughly. If it is wet outside, then place it in a well-ventilated area to dry.
