Outdoor bar stools don’t have to be boring anymore! Choice is now the RAGE! Coming in multiple shapes and optional colors, not to mention size, the decision is only limited by ones imagination! Consider your intentions for use, for example do you want it for family, friends, a combination of them both? Finally, assess how you plan to use the seats, and, of course, location!
Whether chairs or stools, consider the purpose you wish to use them for. For example, if you want a kitchen table effect, then chairs. But if a bar is the location, then by all means, for both indoor and outdoor areas, bar stools should be your selection.
You are in luck, as the look you seek can be found in a LOT of outdoor bar stools!
Form follows function, so once you decide on the use of the bar stool, selection comes naturally.Materials in bar stools come in wood, plastic and aluminum, heavy as well as light, so the options are many and varied. Keep in mind the type of wear and tear you expect will be critical to the ultimate decision.
Cushioned seats are often more comfy, but also more open to abuse and to the elements. Other issues for consideration include effects of the sun, particularly on leather cushions, and rain, of course, will wreak havoc on leather as well. Therefore, placement of cushions when not in use, as well as coverage options, must be considered.
Storage is particularly an issue if in a climate likely to suffer weather extremes, including, of course, the dreaded winter snow storm! If that is a concern then the storage location must be of the size to accommodate your choice in outdoor bar stool. Generally, your best option is a stool that both fits your patio and is most durable, which also cuts down on maintenance!
Enjoy the search!!
So, you bought a few beautiful patio chair cushions to put on your outdoor furniture on your patio but you want to make sure that they remain in good condition for more than just one season because you spent quite a bit of money on them, right? Well, then it is important to take a few steps to make sure that your cushions are well cared for so they look as good next year as they did when you first bought them. And the best thing is that it doesn’t take a whole lot of effort to keep your cushions in tip-top shape. Here are a few tips to follow to properly care for your cushions:
Bring them inside when you are not using them. This is probably the easiest and best way to prolong the lifespan of your cushions. If you are not outside enjoying the comfort and beauty of your patio cushions, then don’t leave them outside simply to be exposed to the elements. Either bring them inside with you or store them in a garage, shed or even a covered bench or storage box. The less time that the cushions sit outside being exposed to the sun as well as rain, the longer they will typically last.
Periodically clean off your cushions. It doesn’t take long to gently wipe down vinyl cushions or spot clean fabric cushions, so if you do it periodically or when you get some dirt or a stain on them, you will keep them looking good for a long time. If you leave the dirt and stains to build up over time, it will be harder to remove them and your cushions will start to look old and worn.
Start with high quality cushions in the first place. The higher the quality cushion you start with, generally the more life you will get out of it, if it is properly cared for. Therefore, don’t skimp on quality if you want your new cushions to last.
The next time you are heading to a sporting event, planning a picnic or hosting a family outing you just may find that the pop up gazebo can come in very handy when you need some shade. It can also be useful if your house is in a location where you could use some protection from the rain or snow.
These sun canopies are often seen in many public parks but if the one you visit does not have them, it is easy enough to bring your own. They are also great to have on a camping trip or anywhere else you need some protection from the sun.
Most golf courses do not have a lot of trees, so naturally you will not find much shade despite the lush lawns that are all around you. It is easy to tire out if you are exposed to the sun for extended periods of time. When it is time for a rest and a cool drink, there is no need to pack up your golf cart and head back to the club house. Just grab your pop up shelter and kick back in the shade until you feel you are ready to go again. Relaxing on a golf course with a cold beverage is great way to spend part of the day.
These gazebos can be completely set up in just a minute or so and there are no tools whatsoever required to finish the job. They make a great companion for the pop up tent a lot of people use when they go on a camping trip. If the rain starts to fall during a hike, put the camping gazebo up instead of dealing with the hassle of erecting your tent. If it is just a passing shower, you can be on the move again within seconds after it stops raining.
Most of these canopy gazebos are waterproof and many are also coated with a special material that protects against ultraviolet rays. Your camping excursion will be so much more enjoyable if you have this kind of protection immediately available to you. You will never have to worry about getting stuck in bad weather again because you will be ready for anything.
Gazebos that pop-up are usually priced between forty and two hundred dollars depending on the shape, size and features that you choose. The most common size is 10 feet by 10 feet and this will fit up to six people comfortably. The very largest gazebos can hold from 200 to 1000 people are great choices for outdoor wedding receptions and other large events.
