Tips On How To Organise Your Outdoor Furniture

Decorating and organising an interior can be a real challenge; you’ve got to think about colour, furniture and of course the overall atmosphere that you want to create. But when you think about your outdoor area, it poses some of same challenges. Usually there are rules and guidelines when it comes to decorating indoors, but often there’s no road-map when you’re doing so outside! If you’re looking at ways to arrange your outdoor furniture that will best suit your environment but you’re not sure where to start, some of these tips might just help you out.

Accessories Are the Key

One of things you’ll want to keep in mind that often makes your outdoor area work and binds the pieces together are the accessories and other decorative items you utilise. This can include a huge range of items! Some of our favourites are unique lighting options (lamps, lanterns can work really well), pot-plants, umbrellas, vases, ceramic tables and hammocks. These items can really bring it all together and add that cohesion that was missing. Remember that the furniture and decorative items you use outside don’t necessarily need to be for outdoor use only; you can always bring a few pieces out from inside!

Mix-up Furniture Sizes

You may have a set of furniture items, whether it be a table and chairs or a pair of sofas and matching coffee table that all fit together nicely. However you’ll find that often you can make things more interesting and charming if you use furnishings of various sizes, with their own characteristics. This adds depth and character to the outdoor setting and when done effectively is a winning move. Don’t be afraid to experiment with different styles in your outdoor furniture if the situation calls for it. Just maintain the regular cleanliness of your outdoor furniture and keep your outdoor space always charming

Stick to A Colour Scheme

Generally speaking, your outdoor setting is more forgiving than your interior when it comes to colour selection. Being an open space, colours that may clash indoors can actually work nicely in your outdoor area, depending on various factors.

However, you should still try to have some method in terms of choosing colours for your furniture, so that it gives your outdoor area the best chance of working. Colour can act to disguise an awkward stylistic match further unify the space.


Dividing the space from other outdoor areas is another way to enhance the look and create a comfortable, relaxed setting. For example, creating a closed space with where sofas and other furniture is facing inwards creates a separate, intimate little area, giving it a room-like feel that people can relate to. It’s also really helpful when you have a larger outdoor area with two or more areas that are quite different in terms of what they are used for. For example, if you have a lounge area and table and dining area, creating a boundary in the way you arrange the lounge furniture is especially effective.

The great part about creating an outdoor space is that you can easily mix, match and experiment until you find something that works. Interior design isn’t as flexible by any means, so with these tips you have every chance of making it work. Good luck!

How to Clean Traditional Mahogany Furniture

If you have a collection of beautiful traditional mahogany furniture, you may be wary of how to clean and treat the wood without damaging the surface. Mahogany differs somewhat from other woods in its grain, structure and density, and when it comes to cleaning, this type of wood needs its own special treatment, especially as an antique piece.

Cleaning your antique mahogany furniture depends on why it needs to be cleaned and the types of stains that have been left on the surface. For simple dusting, a microfiber cloth is recommended for wooden surfaces as its super soft texture will not harm the wood in any way. When using any cleaning solution, ensure that it is intended specifically for wooden surfaces, and in this case mahogany.

Dust on a regular basis Dusting on a regular basis will help the build-up of dirt and grime, as the dust in the air will have nothing to cling to, and polishing the wood can even act as a dust repellent when antistatic surface sprays are involved.
