When the sun makes an appearance during these summer months, you should take advantage of the warm climate while you can. Your garden is the perfect outdoor area to soak up the sun and to spend quality time with family and friends, so you need to make sure that you equip your garden with the right garden and patio furniture.

Whilst many people are still satisfied with a plastic table and chairs, garden furniture is becoming increasingly more sophisticated and people are investing more money into their garden space, paying as much attention into the design and furnishing of their gardens as they do the interiors of their homes.

Garden daybeds are one area that offers a luxurious and stylish means of making the most of relaxing outdoors. They are a comfy way to make the most of the time in your garden or conservatory and offer that extra something to your outside area. Manufactured from Ecolene, which is a durable synthetic wicker, resistant to temperature and safe from cracking and splintering, day beds are a sizeable addition and so become a great focal point to any garden.

The Apple daybed is one of the most popular beds available on the market. These day beds are large enough for two people looking to escape the strongest of the sun's rays, however the top half can be removed for those looking to sunbathe. The 360-degree swivel base means you can change position to keep up with the movement of the sun all day. Manufactured in cappuccino Rattan, the apple day bed is low maintenance requiring only a quick wipe over with a spray of water and a damp cloth to keep it looking at its best. They are resistant to wine and sun tan lotions, and if the Mediterranean look is what you’re after, a stylish white weave colour option is also available.

Today's garden daybeds are designed for contemporary lifestyles, and many are suitable for use in a conservatory setting, allowing you the option of a spare bed for the night if visitors decide they wish to stay. You can also find larger day beds that have features such as a built in sunshade in a flat, Ecolene weave with contrasting cushions and cushion storage when not in use.

Rattan garden daybeds are certainly reminiscent of days gone by when style and comfort were a must. It seems those days are returning once more, and we are happy to report that whatever your taste and budget you can be sure to be able to find a day bed that suits your garden and lifestyle.
