Sun Loungers

When you think of summer, one of the first images that springs to mind is sitting poolside on a sun lounger. These outdoor loungers, with their adjustable angles and comfy cushions, are ideal for reading, napping and sunbathing, which is why they have become a garden staple. They come in a wide variety of sizes and styles, including reclining garden chairs and daybeds, and offer many different materials, such as metal, wood, teak, plastic, rattan and fabric. As you get ready to revamp your outdoor seating situation, be sure to consider these helpful tips.

What are sun loungers?


Sun loungers are a type of chair which people can sit or lie on in order to relax outdoors in warm, sunny weather. Since they are usually adjustable, you can choose the appropriate angle for your requirements, making them perfect for reading and sunbathing alike.

What are the best sun loungers?


The best type of garden lounger for you will depend on how you intend to use it. Traditional loungers are still the most common purchase, but there are a few other options to consider. If you like to sunbathe with a friend, a double chaise lounge pairs together two separate seats, which makes it easier to chat. A daybed is a full-blown outdoor sleeping spot; this oversized furniture piece is ideal for those who want to snuggle up as a family. Think about the overall purpose of the piece and what would best fit on your patio, porch or deck without appearing too cramped.

What garden sun lounger material is best?


If you only intend to use your garden chair a few times a year then plastic sun loungers are an affordable choice but may not be the most comfortable. Wooden sun loungers are more of an investment but will be worth it if you’re using them a lot as they’re durable, look stylish and are pretty comfortable too. Because your reclining sun lounger will spend most, if not all, of its time outdoors, you want to be sure to invest in waterproof and weatherproof materials. Metal, rattan, wood, teak, aluminium and wicker are popular options, depending on your style. If your lounger has a hard frame, you can also invest in some plush fabric cushions, which add comfort, colour and pattern to your outdoor space.

Where should I place my garden loungers?


If you like to soak up the sun's rays, place your garden lounge chairs out in the sunshine on your patio or near your pool (if you’re lucky enough to have one!). If you prefer a shaded spot, a covered patio or near some trees in the back garden would suit you best; you can even add an outdoor umbrella for instant shade. Luckily, a lot of loungers have wheels, which allows you to transport the piece from one side of the garden to the next, depending on your mood.
