Outdoor furniture 'brings home and garden together'

28/10/2010 Homeowners considering the purchase of a cast aluminium garden furniture set have been told that such patio items present the perfect opportunity to tie the interior design of a property into its outdoor space.

Writing for the BestHomeGarden blog, design expert Archie McIntyre urged shoppers to carefully select their garden furnishings, thinking in particular about how well their style will suit the area in which they are placed.

"If you don't want to challenge the eye or you want a garden space to look larger, select your garden furniture in colours that match their surroundings," he explained.

Mr McIntyre went on to suggest contrasting colours, such as blue or purple with yellow, to create a dramatic impact to complement the vibrancy of flowers on display.

The expert also advised people to choose a cast aluminium garden furniture set which reflects the traditional, rustic or contemporary feel of furnishing within the home itself.

Earlier this week, the Stay Tuned blog suggested that the internet was the best place to shop for high-quality patio furniture at low prices.
