Outdoor chaise lounge furniture was our first outdoor pool furniture purchase. Your pool deck is like another room of your house - only outdoors and it needs to offer some of the same comforts. Relaxing by the pool with a good book and a cold drink in our outdoor chaise lounge chairs (yes, we both need our own) is a favorite way for us to enjoy our pool area. Styles range from modern to traditional and from wrought iron to resin wicker. Check out some of the options available here ....
You can't have just one pool chaise lounge or there would be too much disharmony around the pool. Select outdoor wicker patio furniture sets that include two lounge chairs with the cushions.
Very simple assembly is usually required that will take less than 30 minutes. It just involves screwing in the 6 legs and often all of the tools needed are included. You can do it yourself, but it does require lifting the chair and turning it over so the help of another person would make it easier.
If you are looking for comfort and style at a reasonable price check out these options:
Polywood pool chaise lounges are made of a durable, no rust material that is fade and corrosion resistant. There is never a need to repaint, stain or waterproof.
Color stay technology uses the colored pigment - not just as a surface layer - but runs through the entire piece of furniture so that the colors never fade. Color options include white, grey, sand, green, teak, mahogany and black.
Our neighbor put in a new swimming pool last year, and her first pool furniture piece was an outdoor double chaise lounge.
Made of all weather wicker, it is as beautiful to look at as it is comfortable to sit in.
This chaise lounge furniture looks great and is so comfortable thanks to some really thick, nice looking outdoor wicker cushions. Add a couple of pillows to give it some color and extra comfort.
A set of two outdoor chaise lounges can double your fun when shared with a friend. With all weather synthetic rattan weave, powder coated aluminum frame and several reclining positions relaxing on one of these will not be a problem. Made of durable but lightweight aluminum frame it can be easily moved to another part of the pool area or onto your deck or screened in porch. Thick cushions make for a comfortable seat and removable cushion covers can be washed.
Our wrought iron chaise lounge is an adjustable chaise lounge. Sit upright for reading or watching kids in the pool or completely recline to a flat position which is perfect if you'd like to lay on your stomach for a little snooze.
What we love about these outdoor chaise lounge chairs are the wheels that allow us to move them easily to anywhere around the pool. Sometimes we like to be in the shade and we will move it to a shady spot. Other times some warm sun is welcome and we can move it to a sunny place. We love to relax on them with a good book, our feet up, and a cold drink.
When shopping for a metal chaise lounge you will find that they are rust resistant. Wrought iron outdoor pool furniture has been specially treated and then powder coated. Many companies state that the special treatment will give you "years of rust free enjoyment." That has been true with our metal chaise lounge. We have had it for 10 years, and I just inspected it while writing this page, and surprisingly still no signs of rust. But when it does happen you can sand it off and spray it with Rustoleum spray paint. Wrought iron chaise lounge furniture can be found at your local Home Depot or Lowes as well as outdoor furniture stores. They can also be purchased on-line at Amazon here:Wrought Iron and Metal Outdoor Chaise Lounge Chairs
Metal chaise lounges all need outdoor chaise lounge cushions. If you are looking to buy a new outdoor chaise lounge, look for one that includes nice thick cushions.
Instead of moving the lounge chair to a shady spot or moving an umbrella to the lounge chair I finally purchased a clamp on umbrella. It has a universal clamp that clamps on to most surfaces whether it is tubular or square. I clamped mine onto the arm rest.
The umbrella swivels 360 degrees so I can always be protected from the sun. It can be positioned in just about any way - higher, lower, left or right, tilted up or tilted down.
The special lining provides the maximum sun protection of UPF 50+. It's a lot cheaper than buying a tilt patio umbrella and takes up way less storage in the winter. Check it out at Amazon here:
A resin wicker outdoor chaise lounge provides a classic look with no maintenance.
The wicker is actually not wicker, but a resin material that is durable and long lasting. This outdoor furniture can be left outside (bring the cushions in during the winter). Hose it off when it needs to be cleaned.
There are many different color options, from this dark brown to white, gray or black.Resin Wicker Outdoor Chaise Lounge Chairs
Both of them are weather resistant. This wood is well-known for its natural resistance to decay, mold, mildew. The wood can withstand being outside but will weather and take on a more driftwood type appearance. As the wood is exposed to the outside elements, the color will change. Teak changes to a light gray weathered look. If you'd like to keep the original color and sheen you can regularly apply teak oil .This lounge pictured has a cool slide out tray to use for your drink or snack. An adjustable back provides a choice of several comfortable positions and wooden wheels make it easy to move or maneuver. A wood outdoor chaise lounge can be quite heavy, so get one that has wheels so that you can move it easily to another spot.
Outdoor chaise lounge cushions provide not only comfort but also style and color to your outdoor patio area. Not only is the design and color of the fabric important, so is its durability.
Whether you are buying them at the same time you are buying your chaise lounge furniture or as replacements, it is important that you check that the outdoor fabric is fade and mildew resistant.
Accurate measurements are necessary when replacing your chaise lounge chair cushions. The depth, width and length of your existing cushions will provide you with the important dimensions. Measure your existing cushions or the chaise lounge to be sure you get the right fit.
Ordering on line is convenient, but check to see what the return policy is if you don't like the cushions or if they don't fit your chaise lounge furniture.
Cushion thickness will determine comfort. If you are in the store
try the cushions out on a store model.
There are several choices of outdoor cushion fabric. Those who
like to change their cushion colors and style frequently can spend less
on their replacement cushions. However if you are looking for a durable,
fade resistant long lasting outdoor cushion fabric, Sunbrella outdoor
fabric is the most durable. Outdoor cushions made of this fabric cost
more than other outdoor cushions, but in our experience it has been
The colors don't fade and the fabric is stain and mildew repellent. Just what one needs for outdoor furniture. We keep our cushion out all summer in the rain and sun and store it in the garage in the winter. After four years our chaise lounge cushion still looks like new and the color is still vibrant.
These features mean that the cushions will keep their vibrant
colors for years with very little care or maintenance. Darker colors
will hide any stains or built up dirt better than
lighter colors. Check your cleaning instructions before cleaning, but
many outdoor cushions can be hosed off or cleaned with Woolite or Ivory
There are different edges in outdoor cushions, including outdoor chaise lounge cushions. Some of the common edges are a knife edge or a boxed edge.I prefer the boxed edge and a thicker cushion like this one. It is a full 3" and one can really feel the difference.
Give me a good book, some shade, a cold drink and this comfortable chaise lounge and I'm happy to count it as my "mini" vacation.
This portable clip on fan makes a hot day by the pool enjoyable. It rotates, is rechargeable, and the batteries last for hours.
Don't let the heat keep you inside when you can enjoy lounging by the pool in cool comfort in your chaise lounge furniture.
