6 Key Factors to Consider When Selecting In-Pool Furniture for Your Poolside Paradise

Soon, you’ll be soaking up the warm rays of the sun in your very own poolside paradise. But before you can head out and relax, you must complete a crucial step in the process – furnishing your pool area. There are so many factors to consider when selecting in-pool furniture, it can be hard to know where to start. Luckily, we’ve got you covered with our guide on how to choose pool furniture. 

Explore the six key factors to consider for poolside furniture and start making more memories by the pool.

1. Functionality

First, decide how you plan to use your pool area. Do you want to spend the time socializing, having fun, or just relaxing? The pool furniture you choose will play an important role in the scene you set up.

If you want your kids to be able to play by the pool, it’s all about the fun and games. Let your kids have a blast playing on the Signature Slide. Set up checkers or tic-tac-toe on an in-pool side table and spend the day making memories as a family.

If you’d rather spend your time socializing, set up some in-pool chairs for friends and family to gather poolside. Add an ice bin side table to keep beverages chilled and readily accessible. You could even get a poolside bar started with in-pool barstools.

Or, for a relaxing retreat, choose the luxurious lounging experience of an in-pool chaise. With a pillow under your head and a shade above, you can fully sink into serenity. Place a stylish side table nearby for easy access to your refreshing drink and favorite book.

Of course, you don’t have to want the same thing every day. Choose in-pool furniture that allows you to switch between socializing, relaxing, and playing with ease.

2. Size and Space

While you might want to do it all, size and shape of your pool area could limit your poolside possibilities.

Measure dimensions and choose furniture that fits well in your poolside paradise. An expansive pool ledge may be able to accommodate an in-pool sectional and coffee table, while a smaller space may be more suitable for chaises and chairs.

Don’t have a pool ledge? Consider in-pool barstools and pool floats.

3. Durability

Of course, whichever scene you create, you want it to last. Make sure the pool furniture can handle every element of the outdoor pool environment, from bright sunny days to stormy weather.

Look for in-pool furniture made with durable materials. UV20 Rated Resin, for example, can withstand prolonged exposure to sunlight without fading, warping, or deteriorating. Fabrics should also be waterproof, with quick-drying capabilities and mold and mildew resistance.

4. Comfort

If you want to be able to relax and enjoy your pool area to the fullest, you’ll need to be comfortable.

Look for ergonomic designs that prioritize comfort and cater to your body’s needs and personal preferences. Consider factors such as seat height and backrest angle.

You might read customer reviews to get a better idea of how comfortable the furniture is in the pool, but in the end, you’ll need to trust yourself. Only you know which seat fits you right.

5. Style and Design

Don’t confine your design skills to the interior of your home. Extend your creativity to the pool area.

You might create a jungle oasis with lush greenery or opt for a modern and minimalist pool area. It’s up to you.

Select designs that you love, whether that’s clean lines or vibrant hues. Put your personality into the pool area through your choice of colors and patterns. And show off your style within your poolside paradise.

6. Maintenance

Finally, look into the amount of maintenance that will be required to keep it in good condition. You want to spend your time making memories in your poolside paradise, not scrubbing and shining the pool furniture.

Look for resin pool furniture that is resistant to stains, fading, and corrosion. For cushions and pillows, choose outdoor fabrics that are stain-resistant and easy to wipe clean.

By selecting pool furniture that is designed for easy maintenance and care, you can minimize the time and effort required to keep it in good condition, allowing you to focus on enjoying your pool area to the fullest.
