Turn your garden or balcony into a cosy and dry living room with a few simple tricks. Read on to find out which outdoor furniture and fabrics don’t mind a bit of rain.

1. Weather-proof fabric

Fancy an outdoor pillow fight? There’s one thing that makes every living room look cosy and inviting: cushions. The same goes for your outdoor area; mix and match decorative, seat and pallet cushions such as the ones below, which come in pretty designs and are made of water-repellent fabric.

Festive atmosphere: Your outdoor dining table is completed with place mats made of water-repellant fabric such as polyester. Should it rain, all you need to do is wipe them off and you’re ready to lay the table.

Happy Feet: Rugs add to the homely atmosphere in your open-air living room and make sure there’s no need to wear shoes in your garden. Most outdoor rugs are made of PVC, as this material is easy to wipe clean, retains its shape and is anti-static. These rugs are extremely versatile in use and in design.

2. Low-maintenance garden furniture

Dry in no time: Newly developed fabrics and fillings have made it possible to use your garden lounge shortly after rain showers without getting wet. Go for cushions with breathable foam or furniture without upholstery and you won't have to miss out on any sunny spells.

3. Protection from summer rain

Keeping order: Storage boxes and weather covers are great to protect your outdoor furniture. Cover up or create a roof for your outdoor living room and you don’t need to worry about unexpected rain showers anymore.
