Colour is important when choosing a garden furniture set

09/09/2010 Colour is just as important as style or material when it comes to choosing a garden furniture set, according to one blog.

Articlecube.com explained that it is important to first decide whether you want your garden furniture set to blend in with existing features, or add a contrasting accent colour.

The blog also suggested that garden furniture can be used to accentuate an existing feature in the garden.

"A customer in New England placed a bright tangerine garden bench alongside her koi pond. In this case, the intense bench matched her favourite garden accent, her orange fish," it explained.

Hard wood garden furniture sets can be painted easily to fit in with any colour scheme. The blog suggested that outdoor furniture can complement any colours which are already featured in your house

"Making an attempt matching your house's trim colour [can] produce a unified, coordinated look," the article explained, adding that contrasting colours can also be used to provide "interest".

Picnicbenches.org suggested recently that garden furniture can go a long way in creating a good first impression of a home.  ADNFCR-3488-ID-800058200-ADNFCR
