Cushions 'a colourful addition' to a hard wood garden furniture set

18/10/2010 When looking to create the perfect outdoor patio or dining area, there is plenty of choice out there, but those opting for a hard wood garden furniture set may want to take advantage of one expert's advice.

Owen Jones, writing for the Minnesota Hypnotist blog, recently discussed the many options available when shopping for outdoor furniture.

He suggested that a beautiful hard wood garden furniture set often makes a strong statement and complement a green space perfectly, but recommended a few simple additions to ensure maximum comfort.

"If you select hard wood, it can be a bit hard on the backside after a couple hours, so buy a few cushions that match the colour and style of your garden furniture," he explained.

Mr Jones went on to remind those choosing a hard wood garden furniture set to keep their cushions indoors when not in use, as they could become "unbelievably dirty" when left exposed to the elements.

Meanwhile, Kate Hodge, product manager for woodcare at Ronseal, has urged Brits not to forget about their outdoor furniture in the winter, suggesting that a patio heater allows it to be used all year round.
