If you are fortunate enough to have a swimming pool in your backyard, you will want to maximize on the design of that space with a cozy pool seating area. You may have a lot of space available near your pool or just a small spot of concrete, but either way, creating a pool seating area will be a great way to both socialize with your guests while keeping careful watch over the swimmers in your pool.
There are different ways that you can design your pool seating areas to become the perfect spaces to relax within. One of the most classic designs of casual furniture for your pool seating areas is wicker furniture. Think about how lovely the classic white of wicker will look when it’s set against the calming blue waters of your pool. What better place can you imagine to relax within?
Outdoor pool furniture can range from casual to more formal. One style of outdoor patio furniture that can be versatile enough to range from casual to formal is wrought iron furniture. Another style that can transform from casual to formal is teak patio furniture. Depending on the design of teak furniture you choose, you can completely change the look of your pool seating area.
If you are having an event and have run out of adequate seating for your guests, consider simply adding furniture from other areas of your home rather than investing in spare furniture that might not get used often. Dragging deck furniture or kitchen furniture outside can instantly double the number of seats you have available. Patio and pool furniture can also be easily added to with folding lawn furniture pieces that will easily accommodate your extra guests.
Perhaps you would like to enjoy the great outdoors – from inside of your pool! You don’t have to master floating on water for long periods of time – just invest in floating pool chairs. What a better opportunity – surrounded by calm and relaxing water but yet not getting wet unless you want to. Swimming pool chairs can come in hard or soft designs. Deck furniture can also be placed in extremely shallow areas of your pool – those six inch deep splash areas – to combine the comfort of water with the luxury of fresh air.
There are many pool accessories that you can consider when designing your pool seating areas. Your outdoor wicker furniture will thank you when you buy covers for it. Although sturdy, the constant battering of wind and rain can deteriorate this type of furniture and so covering when not in use will help to extend its lifetime. No matter what type of furniture you have chosen for your pool seating area, you can find appropriate covers to preserve.
One of the best and most versatile accessories you can choose is an end table. This can be used to prop drinks on top of – or hide swimming pool supplies inside of. You probably have a great many variety of pool supplies for cleaning and balancing and such and although necessary, it is not necessary to have them out on display. Instead, tuck them inside an end table to have close at hand but not marring your design.
Outdoor furniture cushions are also must have accessories. Your Adirondack chair may be extremely attractive, but without a cushion, it can also be extremely uncomfortable. Better yet, you can use outdoor furniture cushions to change the design of your pool seating area from season to season without the large expense of changing out all of your furniture each year. From casual furniture to more formal designs, accessories can complete your style!
