Creating a living room in your own garden means not only being able to fully experience it and creating a functional space, but also giving an aesthetic value to the garden itself.
Even a small garden, with the right choices, can become an excellent area for relaxation and fun. The ideal choice is to recreate a real small sitting room surrounded by greenery, to also accommodate friends in relaxation.
The choice for the creation of these small oases of rest is wide both from a compositional and aesthetic point of view, the ideal would be to have a table with chairs, a padded sofa, it would not also spoil a cover like a gazebo or an umbrella and, last but not least, a good lighting system, to enjoy relaxation even in the evening.
Large gardens and large lounges are not required, just knowing how to choose comfortable, functional and original furnishings.
If it is not possible to place a chaise longue because the dimensions do not allow it, it will be enough to find enough space to accommodate a rocking chair, an armchair or maybe a bench.
In short, the solutions are endless, for those who have a lot of space, the presence of a nice barbecue, an outdoor kitchen and maybe a platform on which to place all the elements would be excellent, so as to live the outdoor space well even when the ground or the are moist or wet.
It all depends on the taste, therefore, and the budget we have available, but in any case a comfortable and aesthetically beautiful solution always exists.
The fundamental criterion to be taken into consideration when purchasing our garden furniture is undoubtedly functionality. The possibility of an effective use of what we buy must be considered.
The construction material is a characteristic to be examined immediately after. If we want to create a living room in our garden, we are aware that they are all objects that will have to be continuously exposed to the open air and to various climatic conditions. Therefore they will have to be very resistant so that they can last over time, in addition some materials need special care and more accurate maintenance and therefore we must be prepared previously on the characteristics of all the possible materials to choose.
There are many materials to consider, the most common being bamboo and wicker which being compact materials do not require much maintenance if not normal cleaning. Aluminum is very used and appreciated as it is resistant and very robust and provides a very particular touch to the garden. We can also find iron garden furniture which will naturally be treated with anti-rust products and then painted.
Anyone wishing to give their outdoor seating an ethnic or exotic style can opt for rattan, which however needs a little more careful maintenance. Being a vegetable fiber, if it is not previously treated with insulated materials and then properly maintained and repaired, it can deteriorate and suffer irreparable damage. The synthetic rattan will have the same effect aesthetically but it will guarantee much more the resistance of the fiber.
The furnishings built in crocus, water hyacinth and banana leaf are also beautiful, all completely natural materials. We can also suggest that iron and wood are very suitable for outdoor furnishings of houses located in the countryside or at least in very large gardens.
Plastic and aluminum, which are also much cheaper than other materials, can be perfect for small spaces, for terraces or for gardens in support of very modern houses.
Finally, bamboo, teak and lacquered materials are good for beds, chairs, tables and benches in any environment.
