Every year there’s talk of heatwaves, with the promise of the hottest summer yet. With those promises comes people scrambling to get their garden ready. Usually, the weather is unpredictable and one moment it’ll be scorching hot and then the next moment, you’ll end up soaked.

Most of the time people don’t have the right garden furniture for the up-and-down weather. Rest assured, with us at White Stores you can enjoy your time outside, come rain or shine.

Sunbathing Is Saved

All the garden furniture we sell is weatherproof, meaning it can withstand the different seasons without rusting or weather damage. A garden must-have is our Sunbrella fabric outdoor furniture. This partnership specialises in surviving the wettest and hottest of days.

Enjoying the sun is easy with our fabric sun lounger collections offering a forward-thinking take on the traditional sun lounger design. Featuring our lavish quick dry foam, the fabric is unique due to its stain resistance and water-repellent nature.

You may still have to run inside as it rains while you sunbathe, but you’ll no longer have to drag the sun lounger with you! It can be left to dry and is extremely stain-resistant. This is brilliant, because if the furniture is ever left untouched for a long period of time, mould and mildew is difficult to form, and if it did, this could be removed with ease. It’s also fade and UV-resistant, so it’s suitable for warmer days.

Even though our fabric range is suitable no matter the weather, we believe in having as many options as possible. Our sun loungers from our aluminium collection are another stylish alternative thanks to their AkzoNobel powder coated frames, which prevent them from rusting and discolouration. Plenty of these even have height-adjustable headrests, thick padded cushions and two wheels for manoeuvrability, making them ideal for sunbathing your days away.

Ice, Ice Baby

When the sun is out and you’re really feeling the heat, our rattan furniture range has plenty to offer. From dining ranges to lounge sets, our rattan is made from a PE synthetic weave which is coated in a UV additive, making it great to use when the sun is out.

If you host gatherings throughout the hotter weather, then you’ll want you and your guests to feel refreshed. When the sun is out and it’s blazing hot, you won’t want people to feel dehydrated or to have warm refreshments.

Our rattan dining ranges feature ice buckets, which are perfect for storing your drinks. A set that’s made for you and your guests to enjoy the outdoors is the Ruxley collection. This dining set range is created for conversations and relaxing, with reclining armchairs and its round or oval ice bucket tables shaped to create an informal setting.

You’re not limited to a dining set though, as you can have a Chelsea corner sofa set with ice bucket inserts or from the Nova Outdoor Living collection, comes the New Hampshire collection, a reclining armchair set which is great for sitting back in the sun. Featuring two footstools and a side-table, it’s an excellent choice for warmer weather. We also have side tables with ice buckets available, too.

The Two P's

No matter how unpredictable the weather is, our pergolas and parasols will keep you cool and dry. We have an extensive range of parasols ranging from the wooden framed Dominica to the Galaxy, our premium cantilever parasol.

The Dominica is ideal for simpler or more traditional gardens with its retro style and pulley operated system. The canopy is supported by a ribbed frame, making it sturdy and the canopy itself has a UV rating of 50+ and a fade resistance of 5/6.

There’s also a deluxe version with a larger canopy and frame made from FSC eucalyptus wood. This wood is dense, rot and decay resistant as its high oil content repels water and moisture.

For more modern gardens or parasol enthusiasts, we have crank and tilt parasols which include the Apollo, Genesis, and the Galaxy. These parasols have the same UV ratings and fade resistance as our other parasols; however, these are larger, rotatable 360 degrees and have a PA coating, making them resistant to wet weather.

Parasols are a great option for most gardens, but if you have space then our pergola range would make an exciting addition to your garden. Suitable for heatwaves or thunderstorms, our pergolas provide you with the shelter necessary to enjoy your garden.

For flexibility, the Titan would be the best choice, as its award-winning design is ideal for those summer showers. Its double louvres keep the rainwater out, even when opened and its u-shaped channels funnels the water down the frame and into the ground.

While it’ll keep you dry, it’ll also keep you cool as when the louvres are shut, it provides ample shade. And on those hotter days, the Titan has the option of privacy screens, which not only allow you to relax in private, but provide more protection from the sun.


Whether the weatherman says there’s a heatwave on the way, or that it snows tomorrow, you can count on our garden furniture all year round. Explore our collections by visiting one of our showrooms or visiting our website.
