When the weather is friendly, the sun is up in the sky and your day is wide open, what could be more pleasant than relaxing outside? Of course, having a bed there would also help. The beds that you see on porches or in gardens are different from the ones we use in our homes. First of all, they have to be made from special materials in order to withstand the conditions.
Outdoor beds need to be waterproof and, if they’re not, then they need to be kept in protected areas. They also have to be resistant to sun and to other elements. But the thing that all bed types have in common is the fact that they’re designed to be comfortable. They have cozy upholstery and they are soft and pleasant to the touch.
Most often, outdoor beds have a special kind of design for their frame and they feature poles meant to sustain canopies, curtains and other structures designed to provide shade during summer. There’s also another distinct characteristic that defines outdoor beds. They also feature a color palette based on bright shades and bold colors. That’s because the neutral shades we often choose for our indoor furniture won’t match the outdoor décor and will only make the beds look out of place.
