It can be difficult to find a great online garden furniture outlet, especially here in the United Kingdom, however, we have compiled a useful list of how to tell between the good and the bad, and then some references of place you can purchase your outdoor furnishings online today in the UK.
Choosing your furniture delivery date –
I cannot stress this enough, garden furniture tends to be large, and delivered in large boxes, and therefore delivery on a day where you can be present is essential to ensure you do not miss your furniture delivery. It can also be handy to get the driver to place the often heavy boxes somewhere more manageable for you. Round the back of the garden is preferable, but often they will only place the package on your drive. So pick an online furniture outlet that will allow you to choose the exact delivery date.
Guarantee on Garden Furniture –
A guarantee, especially on all weather rattan furniture, is essential to giving you peace of mind that the furniture has been built to last. This means if you ever had problems with the quality, you would be entitled to a refund. This stops online furniture stores disappearing overnight, leaving you with no more than broken, tatty furniture.
Variety of Outdoor Furniture –
This isn’t as essential, but I always prefer to have lots of choice, to find the perfect set for my garden, instead of a copy of my next door neighbours furniture. I prefer a different colour of rattan to most people, I love the light coloured rattan by Cozy Bay furniture, especially in the Sicilia style. However most people go for the traditionally dark coloured synthetic rattan furniture, often in a 4 seater dining set for a small patio area. The benefit of this is that all weather rattan is maintenance free, so you don’t have to store it, treat it, or cover it.
