Choosing a Rattan Daybed
Summer is finally on the way, which means you can start looking forward to relaxing in the garden. A very modern style that we recommend for any sunny day is a rattan daybed. Daybeds are a modern move forwards from a sun lounger and are a great choice for many reasons.
Garden daybeds are designed to be luxurious and comfortable to offer a sense of style to your garden. Plus, daybeds are usually large enough for 2 or even 3 people rather than just 1 like a sun lounger. This therefore offers a far more sociable way to relax in the sunshine.
There are many different sizes for daybeds, some are incredibly large and, if you have the space, look spectacular and incredibly impressive in the garden. However, if you are limited for space we recommend a slightly smaller daybed, perhaps even one that comes in two parts – a sofa section and a footstool section. These two pieces can be pushed together to form the daybed that you can lay down and chill out on, or they can be used separately to create extra seating areas when you have additional guests over.
As for style, you could opt for a hooded daybed which gives you with the option of shelter from the sun, a hut style daybed that provides all round protection, or a daybed that is designed specifically for you to bathe in the sunshine all day long. Rattan daybeds are also available in a range of different colours, so you will never be short on choice.
We recommend rattan daybeds because of their weatherproof qualities. Rattan garden furniture is completely weatherproof and can be left outside all year round which is ideal for the temperamental British weather. This is also perfect for those who opt for larger daybeds as it means you will not have to worry about storing your furniture away during the winter months.
When choosing a rattan daybed, we recommend looking for an option that comes with thick padded cushions that add comfort to your furniture and allow you to fully relax. Additionally, another handy feature that we recommend looking for is a coffee table. Having a coffee table included with your daybed setup will allow you to enjoy the outdoors for even longer as you can keep drinks and snacks within arm’s reach.
Ultimately, a rattan daybed is the perfect way to enjoy the sunshine with friends and family as well as injecting some style into your garden. There is a daybed for everyone, so if you need help deciding which daybed is for you then do not hesitate to contact us or visit one of our showrooms to test out a rattan daybed for yourself.
