Garden Furniture Buying Guide

 
Summer is fast approaching so why not transform your garden into the perfect outdoor living space with our fantastic garden furniture range for quality dining and relaxation. Our range is designed for all types of outdoor spaces and stands the test of time, whatever the weather. With huge furniture brands such as Supremo, Hartman and Leisuregrow we are sure to have the perfect furniture for your garden this summer.

Which furniture suits my needs?

Here at Newbank we understand that choosing your garden furniture can seem like a complex decision. To help you make the right decision, here are a few questions you should ask yourself.
 

What will I use my garden for?

Social gatherings – Whether it being a few friends or a bigger occasion we have a huge selection of lounge and lounge dining sets for everyone to enjoy. Also why not think about a beautiful addition to your garden with a pergola or gazebo, enhancing the look of your garden and providing much needed protection on those hot summer days.
Sitting in the sun – for those who use their garden as an escape or even to just sit and read, why not view our beautiful range of garden swings and benches. With so much choice we are sure to complement any type of garden, patio or decking.
Dining – whether it’s just two of you for breakfast or a large family gathering, we have a wide selection which ranges from 2 seater bistro sets to 8 seater dining sets. With extreme comfort and timeless looks our rattan and cast aluminium sets will never go out of fashion
Relaxing – If you use your garden as a place to unwind or to just enjoy the outdoors a lounge set or day bed could be the perfect purchase this summer. For those who just wish to sunbath, a sun lounger could be the ideal accessory to help top up that tan.
Barbeque – when barbeque weather arrives cook up a storm on one of our fantastic gas or charcoal barbeques, smokers and broilers. As night falls no need to hurry indoors, keep warm using one of our many chiminea’s or fire pits and roast a marshmallow or 2.
 
 

How much space do I have?

Before shopping for your garden furniture we recommend measuring your available area and considering making the most of the space to suit your needs. For example you may have the space for an 8 seat dining set but would prefer a smaller set and a sunbed.
You can also make our furniture work for you with our choice of lounge sets that can be alternated to your desired layout, and with some of our lounge dining sets you can add a chair or 2 to make the most of the area you have.

 
 
 

What material should I choose?

A factor in the selection of your garden furniture is which material should you choose? It’s no secret that each material has good and bad points. So to help you make the right choice for you, here are a few pointers on each material.

 

Resin

Resin furniture is generally more practical rather than beautiful but can be a great addition to your garden. It is a cheaper option as it isn’t as durable as other materials but it is maintenance free and UV protected so therefore will not fade in the sun. A great quick fix for your garden this summer.

Wood

A beautiful material used by many which suits any garden and can last a life time if maintained properly. As the saying goes, “you get what you pay for” with this material as the quality of the wood will affect the lifetime of the product. Generally wooden furniture needs to be treated periodically to protect it from the outdoor elements and also to help it maintain its colour throughout its lifetime. When wood weathers, it will naturally gain a majestic almost silver glow if not treated. Wood is usually a very popular choice for garden benches.

Metal

Our Iseo ranges are made from rust free aluminium frames, and are very durable. If furniture such as bistros and benches and made from powder coated steel , they will need covering in bad weather.

Resin Weave

This is our most popular material for garden furniture as it is light, comfortable and easy to maintain. We have a wide selection of this furniture including, dining sets, lounge sets, lounge dining sets and much more. Many see resin weave as a modern twist on traditional wicker and given it is weather resistant and very easy to clean; it has fast become a very popular choice. Happy in both hot and cold temperatures, resin weave can be left out all year round.

Please note we have a selection of furniture covers and oils to help you maintain your furniture throughout the year.
