Buying aluminium garden furniture online 'saves money'

29/10/2010 Those looking to give their garden a makeover ready for spring have been encouraged to shop online for an aluminium garden furniture set.

Writing on her blog, outdoor style guru Amanda Hudson urged people not to rush to the showroom when considering a patio furniture purchase, but instead to search online – and save money in the process.

"Buying the furniture at a store has advantages. However, it is probably more expensive than buying the exact same item over the internet. Purchasing patio and deck furniture online can possibly save you lots of money," she explained.

Ms Hudson warned, however, that price should not be the only decision-making factor – shoppers should also inspect the quality of the aluminium garden furniture set they are buying, and the online retailer's reputation.

Earlier this week, the Stay Tuned blog reported that the internet is often the best place to find an outdoor furniture bargain.
