What outdoor furniture would be the best fit for a balcony or terrace?

Outdoor furniture should be chosen based on your lifestyle. Consider what activities you will typically do on your balcony or terrace. For example, if your balcony is small, choose furniture that can be adapted for both dining and reading, such as a comfortable chair with a compact footrest and a higher coffee table. If your terrace is large enough, we recommend dividing it into zones, such as a dining area, a relaxation area, and a food preparation area. This will make it easier to select and arrange furniture according to function.

The design of outdoor furniture is often coordinated with the overall design mood of the living space to maintain consistency. Nowadays, this is not difficult to achieve because outdoor furniture designs and materials are very similar to indoor furniture. Outdoor textiles are just as good as indoor textiles in terms of comfort. The current textile manufacturing technologies allow for the production of durable and long-lasting fabric that looks and feels like cotton.

It is more important to pay attention to the internal part of outdoor furniture. It is important that the foam used in soft outdoor furniture is as permeable to air and water as possible, as stagnant water can cause mold. It is very important to prepare outdoor furniture properly for the winter season. Before covering outdoor furniture with covers, make sure they are dry. Stagnant water on the furniture, when it freezes, can damage the fabric.

Outdoor furniture maintenance requires little attention. Dirt can easily be washed off with water and soap. You can use a low-pressure water device to clean off dust or leaves. Wooden outdoor furniture is a little more demanding. It needs to be oiled every season to maintain its color and properties. Grease or wine stains can be removed with alkaline soap and special cleaners.
