Find the right garden furniture set for your balcony or garden
Summer is coming - time to relax in your garden or on your balcony. With a comfortable garden furniture set, you are well prepared for the sunny seasons. At vidaXL, you will find several affordable garden furniture sets. We'll tell you all about which garden furniture to choose and how to maintain it so you can enjoy it for a long time!
Garden furniture sets: an outdoor living room
A garden furniture set consists of a table and at least two chairs or a comfy sofa. An advantage of garden furniture sets is that all items fit together, and they are often cheaper than single furniture items.
Garden furniture sets that are currently very trendy, are made of materials such as poly rattan, metal, or plastic. They are easy to clean and weatherproof, so you can safely leave them outside. Depending on the model, chairs can be stacked or pushed under the table to save space.
Garden furniture sets – there is space for everyone!
Depending on how many seats you need and how much space you have in your garden, vidaXL has different sets to offer.
Relax on your balcony: space-saving bistro sets
Three-piece balcony sets are an easy solution for small balconies or that small spot in the shade under your favourite tree. They consist of a small round or square table and two matching garden chairs. Sometimes the furniture can be folded and stored for example in your garage. If you’re looking for something different, a stool also fits perfectly on a small balcony. Simply push it under the table when it is not needed.
BBQ party with the whole family – large dining groups with plenty of seating
Do you have a large garden and you love inviting your family or friends over for a barbecue or a glass of wine? Then a big dining group with many garden chairs is just what you need. At vidaXL, you can find outdoor dining sets for up to 12 people. There is an outdoor dining set for everyone!
Romantic sunset on your terrace – cheap lounge sets
If you have a large terrace, a lounge set to complement your outdoor dining set is a great solution. After the barbecue party, you can switch to your lounge set to enjoy the last rays of sunshine with a cool drink. At vidaXL, you will find lounge sets consisting of a sofa, armchair or stool, and a matching table. Lounge furniture is generally a bit lower than other patio furniture and offers plenty of seating space. The backrests and armrests are a bit wider and the seat cushions are nice and soft so you can sit comfortably.
Several vidaXL lounge sets can be positioned any way you like. Choose the setup that fits your garden. You can also split it up and place part of the set on the lawn and part on the terrace.
The best materials for garden furniture sets
Our garden furniture is made of weatherproof materials that are easy to maintain, such as poly rattan, solid wood, plastic, and metal. This way you can enjoy your outdoor furniture for a longer period of time. Combinations of materials are also popular. Mix and match whatever you like and create your own style!
Wooden garden furniture
Solid wood gives your garden a rustic look. Choose acacia or teak wood for example. Next to the pretty look, the material is also very sturdy. To ensure that it stays nice, you need to take care of it on a regular basis: keep it clean and apply a special oil.
Poly rattan garden furniture sets: trendy and low maintenance
Poly rattan is perfect for the garden and looks like its natural counterpart, rattan. Poly rattan is made of synthetic materials, mostly polyethylene. Poly rattan garden furniture is weatherproof and water-resistant, and it stays beautiful over the years. The material is UV-resistant, and the bases are made of stainless steel, so it is robust and light at the same time.
When autumn arrives, it's time to clean your poly rattan garden furniture and store it under a cover or inside. This way snow and rain will not damage the furniture.
Outdoor furniture made of metal: classic and practical
Stainless steel or aluminium garden furniture is lightweight, weather-resistant, and easy to clean. Rain and UV radiation do not affect these materials. Because of their light weight and practical folding functions, aluminum furniture sets save space. At vidaXL, you can also find romantic furniture with flowers and other decorations. They look great next to a pond or an old tree for example. You will create a romantic atmosphere in no time!
Plastic garden furniture: cheap and easy
Plastic garden furniture can consist of different materials and is often very cheap. All plastic furniture is weather-resistant and requires low maintenance. It’s also very practical – usually, you can stack or fold it, so you can easily transport and store it somewhere.
Things to keep in mind when buying a new garden furniture set
If you have a small balcony or patio, foldable furniture is a great choice when you need to save space. Even during winter, they take up little space in your garage, basement, or storage room.
Do you also love dreaming about a tropical destination? Then garden chairs with an adjustable backrest or sunloungers are the perfect option.
Lounge sets at vidaXL often come with matching cushions. These are water and dirt repellent and make lounging even more relaxing. Throw on the pillows and let the lounging begin!
How to maintain your garden furniture set
Garden furniture maintenance is important if you want to enjoy your furniture for a longer period of time. We have a few simple tips for you!
1. Care tips for garden furniture
If your garden furniture is dirty, you can clean it with a damp cloth. Metal, plastic, and poly rattan furniture can be rinsed off with a bit of water. Avoid chemical cleaning products as they can damage the surface.
For stubborn stains on furniture or upholstery, mix a bit of soap with lukewarm water. If the seat covers can be removed, choose a mild washing program on your washing machine to clean them. If you have a wooden garden furniture set, it's important to clean it regularly. Apply a special wood care oil so it does not become brittle and loses its shine.
2. Store your garden furniture in fall & winter
If you want to enjoy your garden furniture for a long period of time, use a cover to protect them from rain, snow, and the cold. If you have room in your basement, garden shed, or garage, you should store your furniture indoors. Garden furniture and upholstery should be stored dry but not too warm. Seat cushions can be stored in garden storage boxes to protect them from moisture and moths.
