Brighten Up Your Garden With Colourful Garden Furniture
April 04, 2024

While greys and neutrals may always be popular, many gardeners are now opting for colourful garden furniture to inject some extra style into their outdoor space.

And what’s not to love? Colour brightens a space up and gives us feel-good positive vibes. It’s also a great way to show your personality and add a little individuality to your garden – just like when you design your interior. So if you're looking for colourful outdoor furniture ideas, our experts can help with their top picks. 

Balcony Bliss: Brightening Your Space with Colourful Patio Furniture

If you have a balcony or smaller garden, colourful patio furniture is one of the easiest ways to give your space a lift in the style stakes. With little room to play with, a bright pop of colour in the form of a garden chair or bistro set will give your small space the wow factor, not to mention providing an idyllic place to enjoy breakfast in the warm summer sun, or al fresco dinners as the sun goes down. This contemporary pink three-piece set creates a gorgeous contrast with any green plants, while the matching set in blue is another eye-catching piece. 

For added practicality, this folding bistro set in lime green can easily be packed away when not in use or when extra space is needed, making it perfect for balconies.  

Patio Palette: Colourful Ideas for Outdoor Lounging

Vibrant yellows are unbeatable for the sunshine factor and give happy vibes in bounds. This colourful garden table and chairs in yellow is certainly a happy piece if ever we saw one. 

Bright pink is a wonderfully fun colour to add to your space and pops in a green space (this pink bistro set simply calls out for you to lounge on it), while pastel garden furniture in pale pinks, greens and yellows has a muted yet uplifting effect.

Make a Statement with Vibrant Outdoor Dining Sets

Nothing gives the wow factor like an unexpected burst of colour as you enter the garden. Take al-fresco dinners to the next level by hosting on colourful outdoor furniture instead of something expectedly neutral. 

This contemporary pink egg set is perfect for casual gatherings, while this bold red table and bench set will certainly do some talking. If you’d prefer a muted blue, this Charles Bentley folding dining set is ideal and even folds down after use so you can bring it out only when you need it. 

Colourful Garden Benches to Unwind On

A vibrant, colourful garden bench is a great way to add a pop of colour to any outdoor space – especially if you’re creating garden zones (link to How to Create Zones in Your Garden’ when live). Sit down and unwind, read a book or simply admire your garden as you perch on your new – and oh-so-stylish – outdoor seat. Whether it’s a serene pastel green, antique-style vintage blue or bubblegum pink garden bench, it’s sure to add impact. 

Why not double up the functionality by opting for a bold colour plus storage space? This bright green storage bench will work wonders for those short on storage space. If it’s a swing seat you’re after, this sunny orange swing seat makes a statement as well as provides some gentle movement and shade. 

Compliment Your New Furniture with Bold Garden Accessories

Colourful garden furniture isn’t the only way to inject bold colours into your space: At Robert Dyas, we have a whole array of vibrant parasols and other garden accessories. 

Whether you want to spice up some neutral furniture with a complimentary parasol or need something to go with your colourful garden furniture, you’re in the right place. Check out our parasols in shades of orange, wine red, and purple, or enjoy the added style of this blue cantilever parasol hanging attractively over your dining set.   

How to Style Colourful Garden Furniture

As your colourful garden furniture will be the focal point of your garden, plant complimentary flower colours to style the entire space. And don’t forget your outdoor cushions of course – these are an easy way to add a little creativity, colour and comfort into your garden and tie in any different shades you may have.

Outdoor lighting is another way of bringing all the elements of your stylised space together. Whether you opt for classic white string lights or go maximalist and add multi-coloured solar lights, they’ll give your garden a cosy glow you can admire when dusk falls. 

Our Top Tips for Keeping Your Colourful Furniture Looking Fresh

To help maintain the vibrancy and finish of your colourful outdoor furniture, use furniture covers – especially in winter when the weather’s harsh. 

All garden furniture needs maintenance of some kind so make sure you treat it according to its needs: oil or stain for wooden pieces, or rust treatment for weathered metal items for example. You can also paint your outdoor furniture to restore its colour or refresh it with a new shade to match your garden scheme. 

However you choose to inject colour into your space, you’ll soon be soaking up those positive vibes as you relax and enjoy your garden’s new look. If your inner garden designer is raring to get creative, browse our full range of garden furniture and be inspired!
