Garden furniture has come a long way in the past few years. In the past you would find garden furniture was generally made out of cheap plastic, but now you can buy all sorts of different materials that are both beautiful and durable. With so many different types of materials available today, there is something for everyone’s garden. Below we have listed some of the most unique and interesting garden furniture available to buy.
Rattan pieces are among the most popular of all unusual garden furniture. What better way to relax in the shade than on an unusual sun lounger or rattan daybed. These funky new furniture pieces are very comfortable and extremely relaxing, because they are made of high quality synthetic rattan. And, because they are made out of high quality synthetic rattan they’re also extremely weatherproof and can therefore be left out all year around without any damage.
If you’re looking for unusual garden furniture then you can’t go wrong with wicker. Wicker is simply woven plant fiber and can either be natural or made artificially. It’s incredibly stylish, because it is often used to design outdoor living spaces. For example, wicker is often used on garden benches to create a comfortable place to sit and relax. Some people even choose wicker for window bars, which help to provide a more striking feature to the outside of your home.
If you have an empty space in your garden then why not fill it with some unusual garden furniture. One idea is to use old chairs that have been left outdoors and get them re-upholstered. Then add some unusual garden accessories, such as large sculptures or unusual statues. Look for items that will blend in with your garden – there’s no point choosing some brightly colored cushions if they’re going to clash with your grass. In fact, if you use brightly colored cushions you should probably think about repainting them – but again, make sure that they match your outdoor furniture so they don’t look out of place.
You can also create some unusual outdoor furniture by combining different materials. For example, why not build a small bench from recycled plastic bottles? This is actually a popular thing that many people do at the moment. They can then either choose to either fill the bottles with helium and light them (which is incredibly cheap) or to paint them so they look just like any other outdoor furniture. It’s surprisingly easy to turn ordinary bottles into unique garden to garden furniture.
Another idea is to use the oddest materials you can find. For example, you might find that expensive teak is too practical for the garden, so you can try making your own unique wooden garden furniture using recycled teak planks. It’s surprisingly easy to make a simple wooden bench look completely out of left over garden timber and it offers some interesting alternatives to typical plastic garden furniture.
For something slightly more unusual, why not try an unusual type of garden furniture made from a material that most people have never heard of? One very traditional type of material is wicker. It’s certainly unusual to buy wicker garden furniture – but some companies have been producing unique outdoor furniture made out of recycled resin that looks exactly like teak, except for the color (usually black). If you want something a little different, resin wicker furniture can also be made to look like rattan.
And don’t forget garden benches! A garden bench is probably one of the most basic forms of unusual garden furniture. However, they can look absolutely stunning when made from unique materials. For example, why not choose rattan for your garden bench? Or why not try unusual garden furniture such as Spanish style wrought iron? You really are limited only by your imagination.
