Perfect for outdoor siestas!
Likewise, it is the ideal instrument to enjoy a romantic or family moment: sunbathing together, chatting in complete privacy, admiring the stars or reading a story to your little one… Not bad, right? You can see that choosing a garden bed for your outdoor space has many advantages. Be careful with sunburn though, take your precautions!
Which one to choose? Focus on our top 3!
There are many different types of garden beds. Let’s try to see more clearly and find the one that suits you best with our top 3 of the trendiest. Let’s start with the classic: the four-poster bed. This timeless, which needs no introduction, allows you to both cut yourself off from the wind and offer you a corner in the shade. You will generally find wooden or wrought iron models on the market. Its price, around 1000 euros, is not low, but it is a safe bet that you can keep over time if you take care of it.
Next, our second choice: the sofa bed version. This, like the comfortable indoor sofa bed, is on the rise for its practical qualities. In fact, it is offered with modules to offer more options. In addition, its ratio between quality and price is quite unbeatable, not to spoil anything: the first prices in braided resin start at €300. In addition, there are models for one person in the form of a chaise longue. Finally, the last option for the most trendy in 2022, the cocoon. This model, which you can find in wicker, linen or wood, will offer you an item halfway between sleeping and tents. Enjoy a zen and natural place for around €500.
Good news, the garden bed requires little maintenance. Firstly, everything depends on the chosen structure and material. For garden beds in woven resin, a good wash with a jet of water, using a slightly soapy sponge, will be more than enough. It will be the same for outdoor beds in aluminum and the textile or fabric. Simple, right? Finally, it is especially for the model of wooden garden beds that it will be necessary to look after the grain and give a little more care.
In fact, you are aware that wood generally requires varnishing and oiling of its material. This will prevent your furniture from turning gray due to the passage of time. To save you the trouble, we recommend that you oil your bed well. In addition, you varnish it once a year, so that it retains its beautiful wood color and its beautiful appearance from before. Use a lightly moistened sponge for daily care. That way, everything would go well in the most beautiful garden. And now, how about tackling your sunburnt lawn? That would be the icing on the cake, right?
