What are garden day beds?
How inviting it may sound, garden daybeds are not beds you spend all day in. The garden daybed is an area you can sleep on but is also a sofa to sit on. The main feature of a daybed is that they have three sides around them and an opening. The garden daybed is a piece of outdoor furniture that is perfect for sunny days, some comes with a retractable canopy to keep you cool in the shade; others are open or have a fixed canopy. Daybeds are perfect for use either indoors and outdoors due to the option for using them as a bed or a sofa, but garden daybeds are mainly used for relaxation.
What are garden daybeds used for?
When the UK finally has some beautiful weather, it can be short lived. Having the ability to enjoy the Sun in comfort is important. The sunshine has an ability to raise a person's mood and nothing is more comfortable than lounging on a lazy Sunday afternoon. A round outdoor daybed offers protection from the sun at uncompromising comfort!
Staring at the stars
Space is amazing; the stars are beautiful; a lot of people are fascinated by the universe. Daybeds and outdoor furniture are an elegant solution to observing the many mysteries of the universe.
What materials are garden daybeds made from?
The majority of the most popular garden furniture are made from rattan styled materials. PE rattan is a recycled plastic alternative to real rattan and is much more resilient to the elements. The material is still woven together to create a strong and sound piece of furniture.
Aluminium is an alloy that is lighter than iron, strong enough to withstand a large amount of weight, and is designed to be anti-rust. Weather in the UK is very diverse and any garden daybed will need to be resistant to the elements. Aluminium reacts with the air and develops a microscopic level of aluminium oxide over its surface, which acts as a barrier. Aluminium is also a versatile material and can be shaped to virtually any size, so if you need small outdoor daybed for your smaller spaces, aluminium could be the answer.
When the weather undoubtedly switches from beautiful sunshine to torrential rain, you will see people rushing outside to grab clothes drying on their washing lines. They would also need to rush to bring any non-weather-proof cushions from their garden furniture. Our garden daybeds have weather-proof cushions so they do not need to be stored away until they are needed.
