Outdoor Storage Benches Add Beauty to Your Garden, Porch And Patios

Now that spring is in the air, you will be spending more and more time outside. You would love to have nice seats to sit and enjoy the sunshine and cool breeze – enjoying some snacks and long cool drinks. But do you have enough space to relax in your garden? With gardens tools occupying more space and children spending more time outside playing, there sure will be a space crunch in the garden, porch and patio areas. Outdoor storage containers can do double duty as benches and ottomans for nice and comfy seating as well as to store things handy and ready. You can store garden tools, seeds, fertilisers and water hoses. You may keep seasonally used personal effects like raincoats and gumshoes, and children’s playthings and sports goods. Most of the times, they can be used as dumping place for whatever we think as clutter or extra inside the house.

What would you expect from outdoor storage benches/containers? Wet or warm climate, snow or sleet, rain or shine, they must keep the interiors dry and keep the stored things safe from elements and other hazards. They should serve as additional seats in garden looking pretty with low maintenance year-round. And these containers do that and more. These are usually manufactured out of sturdy but lightweight stuff and withstand the vagaries of weather. There are sturdy wooden containers – long or square; there are metal ones like of aluminium or iron, and there are durable and long-lasting plastic containers. But before deciding on what kind of outdoor storage containers you want, think of what are all the items you will be storing in those containers. All have the options to double as seats with or without cushions and withstand the rigours of 24/7 direct or partial exposure to elements.

Pretty Looking Parasols And Utilitarian Umbrellas – A Must for Summer Months

Now that the summer is actually here, it is essential to have some protection when you are sitting out in the sun – either near the pool or in the garden. When the sun rays are most intense – especially between 11 a.m.to 4 p.m., it is always advisable to wear adequate sunscreen, protect your eyes from the glare and protect yourself from direct exposure to too hot a sun. Parasols or sun-shades offer efficient protection during the hot hours of the day when you run a chance of getting heat stroke, too much suntan and UV radiation etc. Most cases of melasma occur essentially because of being exposed to intense sunlight without any sunscreen. Skin gets coarse and leathery and even hair and lips get affected by harmful UV radiation.

You have a multitude of parasols available in the market today. There are different sizes, different shapes and different materials that are used to make these useful summer accessories. While aluminum is the most popular choice for the frame and lever and base stands, wood is also a pricey option. Combination of canvas and PVC works best for the material to cover the frame. Generally the diameter of the parasol must be some 4-5 feet larger than the area it needs to cover. The mechanics should be quite sturdily made as well easy for operation. Manual operation has been replaced by push button type that is fixed on the base which anchors the parasol. There are some with electronic remote control options available.

Cantilever types of umbrellas are as much popular as the telescopic type both offering an easy way to make it functional. Actually cantilever types are popular poolside and in the garden whereas the other telescopic one is less space occupying. Likewise today the fabric cover- mostly a canvas-UV combo is UV resistant and wears well with 24/7 sun exposure. For stiff breeze/strong wind conditions, there are vents built in the fabric cover so it is not wind-blown or damaged. These vents are so constructed that rain water does not leak in. Pure canvas is sometimes treated for making it waterproof. Now parasol/umbrellas come with castor wheels so you can push it where you want.

Here are some beautiful parasols/umbrellas from Scolaro-Parasol. With both cantilever type and telescopic type frames with sturdy and stunning looking fabric covering, these parasols look really beautiful. Each one is making the patio, garden or terrace look outstandingly beautiful.

I am sure you also will like to get one such beautiful parasol for your home?
