Looking at the latest ONS retail sales figures, it seems that retailers are managing to hold their own in an extremely challenging economic environment. As we progress through the summer it is clear to see that retailers are under constant attack from the repercussions of inflation outstripping wage growth. However, retail sales have shown unexpected resilience powered by the hot weather which has left British consumers factoring retail therapy in their budgeting.
At White Stores, we understand how important it is to feel at home in your garden during those short and sweet summer months. But choosing the right garden furniture can be a tricky business, so we have come up the perfect “how to” guide for choosing the perfect patio furniture.
There are several different types of garden furniture to choose from.
There’s nothing more pleasant than spending those precious moments outdoors in your very own outdoor space. But if you really would like to make the most of these days, you’ll need some quality garden furniture.
Housing Units, Manchester’s largest home furnishings store, have provided the ultimate buyers guide to help you choose the best furniture for your space.
Whether you’re looking to transform your garden into a space to wine and dine this summer, or simply a tranquil place to unwind and relax, Forest Garden’s range of timber garden furniture has a little something to make living outdoors a joy.
For alfresco dining or an evening’s entertainment, Forest Picnic Tables are available in a range of sizes with either rectangular or circular table tops. For something more contemporary, Refectory Tables and Sleeper Benches are available individually or in sets of 1.2m and 1.8m - they’re stylish, sturdy and easy to assemble.
The trend in recent years has been to utilise your outdoor space as another room and not just as a place for growing plants or as a football pitch for the children. Create an enclosed space by putting up screens and covering them with climbers; add a parasol and you will have created a private, enclosed space.
You can make your garden almost as warm and comfortable as being indoors, with stylish fire-pits and outdoor fires, comfortable all-weather furniture and warm snuggly throws.
Do you have rattan furniture in your garden? With it being one of the most popular choices for garden furniture there is a good chance that you do. Rattan furniture is exceptionally popular due to the fact it needs very little maintenance. Good quality rattan furniture is rust-proof, weather resistant and easy to wipe clean if there are any unavoidable spillages.
However, that doesn’t mean you should neglect your furniture completely. At White Stores, we believe taking care of your furniture means that it will exceed its guarantee and continue to serve your needs for years to come.
