Shopping for new furniture can be expensive, but it can also be a lot of fun. If you have already replaced the old furniture of your living room and of your bedroom, you might be wondering what will come next. Here are 8 signs it’s time to start shopping for new patio furniture.
1. The wood of your patio furniture is starting to rot
If your patio furniture is made from wood, it will eventually start to rot if you don’t maintain it properly. If you notice rot on your patio chairs, the only thing left to do is getting rid of them to replace them with new ones.
2. Your patio furniture is getting rusty
Rusty patio furniture produces unpleasant squeaks, and can even stain your clothes. If the metal frames of your furniture are rusted, or if you notice rust on metal bolts and nuts, it’s time for a change.
3. You’re not able to get rid of mold and mildew
If your seat cushions have been staying outside too long, mold and mildew might be growing on them. If you can’t get them clean, you can simply decide to buy new seat cushions or, of course, you can shop for a new set of patio furniture.
4. The style of your home has evolved
If the style of your home is constantly evolving with new upgrades and changes, your outdoor space might be starting to feel jealous. It can be a good idea to upgrade your patio furniture with a brand new, modern set.
5. Your patio furniture is older than you are
If your patio furniture was given to you by your parents or another member of your family, it might be older than you are. It might still look like it’s in good condition, but you could be surprised to find out that new patio chairs are a lot more comfortable than your old ones.
6. Your patio furniture appears in old photographs
Maybe you simply don’t remember when or where you bought your current set, or who gave it to you. If your patio furniture appears in photographs that are more than 10 years old, it might be time to invest in a new, modern set.
7. You are ready for grown-up patio furniture
Maybe you currently have cheap, plastic patio furniture in a colour that you simply don’t like anymore. Maybe you simply feel like your current set doesn’t represent who you are now. If you feel like you are ready for grown-up patio furniture, it’s time to go shopping.
8. You fell in love with a new patio furniture set
Finally, if you simply fell in love with a new patio furniture set you saw online or in a store, you can replace your current set even if it’s still stylish. If it’s still in good condition, you might want to give it to someone who can’t afford to buy a new set.
