Fans of retro, rustic, or intricate designs will be pleased with the patio furniture trends coming up this spring. Of course, you may be wondering which pieces you need to replace this year.
The quality of materials, age and weather conditions all play a role in determining if it is time to replace your patio furniture. Signs to keep your eye out for include:
- Excessive rust
- Wobbling legs
- Mould growth
- Discolouration and stains
- Creaking noises
- Rips in the fabric
If you notice any of these issues with your patio furniture, it is likely time to consider replacing it. The good news is replacing your patio furniture should be fun! Here are the hottest trends to get excited about.
1. Rustic Outdoor Sofas
Outdoor sofas will remain a popular choice for patio furniture in 2019. They allow multiple people to enjoy the comfort of an indoor living room, outdoors.
2. Lightweight Pieces
Lightweight pieces are becoming increasingly popular because they are easy to move. With light outdoor furniture, you can follow the sun or rearrange the space as more people arrive. Plus, they make putting everything in storage for winter and pulling it out again in spring, a breeze.
3. Retro Patio Furniture is Trending
Retro furniture is set to make a comeback this spring. Look for ‘80s or ‘90s inspired styles in orange and green. If you prefer neutrals, brown and grey will be on-trend too.
While not necessarily retro, unique furniture shapes and metal legs are other features to look out for. Don’t forget to complete outdoor sofas and chairs with fluffy pillows.
4. Intricate Frames
The framing that supports our seating isn’t sitting on the sidelines anymore! Look forward to personalizing your patio with creative framing patterns. Popular designs include geometric and floral, especially on the back of chairs.
In addition to furniture, unique string lights are expected to be increasingly popular in 2019. Lights are a great way to add character to your patio and highlight your beautiful furniture. Strings of lights come in unique shapes and colours.
Not into string lights? Fountain lights, garden lights and fire pits can all add the right kind of light for your patio space.
