Summer Garden Lounger Guide 

When choosing a good garden lounger, our Summer Garden Lounge Guide breaks down what each type of lounger suits your lifestyle and budget.

TeakTeak lounger

Teak looks absolutely stunning when it is oiled regularly and is quite expensive to purchase brand new.  If it isn’t looked after properly it can turn silvery grey.  The pros of this kind of furniture are that it looks absolutely beautiful and really makes a statement in the garden.  The cons are that it will need regular maintenance.  You can wash it lightly with warm soapy water and oil it at least twice a year.  During the winter months, it is better to store it somewhere dry, however, you can pick up some covers to help protect it in the wetter seasons.  Our advice, if you don’t have the time to look after it, don’t buy it.

Similar to teak, this type of garden furniture will change colour if not looked after.  This type of lounger is hardwearing so out the outset, it may set you back a few pounds.  In the long run, it is worth the money, but only if you take care of it.  Wash it down with soapy water and give it two coats of oil at least twice a year.  Our advice, if you don’t have time to look after it, don’t buy it.

There’s no denying it, plastic comes up clean after a good wipe over.  Granted some pieces can look quite “cheap” and is great if you are on a budget.  Available in a range of colours and styles and is very easy to clean with not much maintenance required.  If you lead a busy lifestyle, this could be right up your street.  No need to cover in the winter, just give it a good clean and you are good to go!

Rattan is UV and weather resistant so it pretty much looks after itself.  There are many different styles available and the prices vary greatly but definitely worth the investment.  The frame is usually made of aluminium so you would need to keep the exposed metal parts maintained by applying exterior metal paint at least once a year.  If you find any rust, using steel wool, remove the rust then apply exterior paint.  You can then apply wax to give it more protection from the elements.

Metal furniture can greatly differ in price (depending on what type of metal you want to invest in).  It can be washed with soapy water or a pressure washer on a low setting. Be careful though if it has a glass or fragile tabletop.  To prevent it from rusting, you can use steel wool to remove any rust then apply exterior paint.  You can then apply wax to give it more protection from the elements.
