Technically, it’s still winter – but it’s reaching into the high 70s, which means it’s almost time to get your pool ready for entertaining again. This year, you can make a big splash with new pool furniture (and if you’re buying Scottsdale luxury real estate, you get to start with a fresh palette). Check out these four types of must-have pool furnishings:
- Bistro sets
- Chaise lounges
- Outdoor sectionals
Here’s a closer look at each.
4 Types of Pool Furniture You Need This Summer
#1. Bistro Sets for Poolside Dining
The perfect place for a light lunch or an al fresco dinner poolside? A charming bistro set designed for outdoor use. Typically, outdoor bistro sets seat two to four people – any more than that and you’ll want to invest in a full-sized dining table.
Pro tip: A bar-height bistro set may be the perfect choice to keep your fare safe from splashes.
#2. A Hammock for True Relaxation
You don’t need to tie a hammock between two trees to enjoy it – modern hammocks use wood or metal stands that you can set up anywhere you’d like. Some hammocks even come with shade covers to keep you protected from the sun.
Pro tip: Choose a rope-woven hammock so you can enjoy the breeze and drip-dry after a dip in the pool.
#3. Chaise Lounges for In-and-Out Pool Fun
Hands-down, the most popular poolside furniture type is the chaise lounge. Opt for wicker or rattan to dive into a beachy look, or pick chaise lounges featuring solid wood or metal construction for something sturdier.
Pro tip: Choose changeable all-weather fabrics for cushions. That way, you can create a fresh look whenever you’d like to.
#4. Outdoor Sofas or Sectionals for Day and Night Entertainment
A cozy outdoor sectional is perfect for spending time with family and friends in the backyard. Like chaise lounges, you should opt for all-weather fabrics that can handle sun, a dry environment, and damp conditions.
Pro tip: Look for a sectional that has a matching storage ottoman so you can store your pillows and other accessories when you’re not using them.
