Avoid common mistakes when buying a new garden furniture set

18/08/2010 If you're thinking of investing in a new garden furniture set, there are a number of common mistakes that you should pay attention to before buying.

The Maugi blog highlighted that many people fail to understand how much space they have for their table and chairs, which means they purchase a garden furniture set which is far too large and out of proportion with the rest of their outdoor space.

If your garden is smaller, a bistro-style cast aluminium furniture set could be a good option, the Garden Bench Seat blog advised recently.

Another common mistake, according to the Maugi blog, is deciding to purchase items individually, rather than in a garden furniture set, as often people find they are unable to find matching pieces when they need them later on.

The material used for the garden furniture set is also very important.

"Metal for instance is very hard wearing but it is also quite heavy. Solid wood looks really lovely but unless you care for it and maintain it, it will look old and worn after a while," the blog explained.  ADNFCR-3488-ID-800030056-ADNFCR
