How to Rent Furniture for the Outdoors

If your backyard is looking a little dull this spring, consider sprucing it up!  You can rent furniture for your backyard or patio.  What better season to spend some time outside?  Take advantage of the weather and entertain guests outdoors, or simply relax outside with a good book.

Whether you’re working with an apartment balcony, a small patio, or a spacious backyard, renting a little outdoor furniture can really change the way you look at your outdoor space.  Here are CORT’s top tips for choosing the best outdoor furniture.

Why Rent Furniture?

When you choose to rent furniture for the outdoors, think about where you’ll be placing the furniture.  Will it be under a covered canopy?  Out in the open?  Beside a pool?  Consider what kinds of conditions it need to stand up to.  Next, think about what you’ll be using the furniture for.  Do you entertain guests frequently?  Do you have children who like to play outside?  Whether that means you choose child-safe furniture, large couches, cocktail tables, or loveseats, make sure that you rent furniture that will fit your needs.

Rent Furniture with the Right Materials

When you rent furniture for your backyard or patio, keep the materials in mind.  The best outdoor furniture is made of a sturdy metal frame or dense, well-sealed wood that will hold up against wind and all kinds of weather, and that won’t deteriorate.  If your outdoor furnishings have any fabric, it should be durable, quick drying, and mildew and stain resistant.

Rent Furniture at the Right Price

Next, figure out how long you’d like to rent.  Furniture for your backyard doesn’t have to be year-round!  CORT offers lease terms that last that last anywhere from one month to over one year.

Settle In

Last, once all your outdoor furnishings are all in place, have a party!  There’s no better way to celebrate the season than to gather with friends or family.
