Choosing Garden Furniturefor Large Families

IIf you’ve got a large family or you simply enjoy having plenty of people over for barbecues or garden parties, then choosing the right garden furniture can be tricky, especially if you have limited space. Here, we’ve uncovered some of the best garden furniture designs for big families.

Rattan Cube Sets

Cube Sets

A cube set is the ultimate garden furniture for big families or lots of guests, this is because it is a gift that keeps on giving. Everywhere you look with a cube set you will uncover extra seating, and best of all, you can pack everything away neatly once you’re finished.

Our range of rattan cube sets come with the option of 4 or 6 seats, but with each seat you will uncover a matching footstool, which can double up as extra seating. This means you really have the option of either 8 or 12 seats, perfect for big numbers.

Rattan Casual Dining Sets

When the party is over, you can tuck the footstools under the chairs and tuck the chairs under the table, perfect for keeping your garden space free when the furniture is not in use.

Casual Dining Corner Sofa Sets

Corner sofas offer plenty of space for you and your guests to either sprawl out, or cram as many people on as possible, all whilst still being comfortable. Plus, combined with our casual dining tables, this means there is plenty of space to dine al fresco.

Our range of rattan casual dining corner sofa sets all come with a number of footstools or benches which allow room for extra guests to sit around the table.

Our top pick of casual dining sets are those with rising tables, this means you can either use the table as a casual dining set or lower the table and use it as a coffee table. Ideal for inviting lots of friends for dinner or relaxing with some cake and a cup of tea.

Extending Table

Extending Garden Tables

Extending garden tables are perfect for big families as, when in use, you can extend the table out to offer more space to spread out the dining chairs or fit more food on the table. Plus, when it’s just mum and dad at home, or the table isn’t in use, you can contract the table to its original size and keep your garden space neat and tidy.

These extending garden tables are often made from a stylish combination of wood and metal. We recommend looking for extending tables that come with stackable chairs, this way the chairs that aren’t in regular use can be stacked and stored neatly.

Rattan Daybeds


If you want to relax and bathe in the sunshine but the kids also want to join in, a sun lounger set for 2 isn’t going to cut it. However, a rattan daybed is ideal as they are larger and can fit plenty of people. Plus, if you do happen to get some peace and quiet you can sprawl out and fully relax.

The rattan daybed is ideal because, as it is quite large furniture, it can be difficult to store. However, rattan furniture is incredibly weatherproof and can be left outside all year round. But you will still have to find space to store the daybed cushions.

If you are planning a large garden party or you have a big family and you are looking for suitable garden furniture, we recommend a trip to one of our showrooms so that you can test the furniture for yourself. Or, give one of our customer service advisors a call and they will be able to recommend the best option to suit your needs.
