When it comes to decorating your poolside lounge, plastic folding chairs just won’t cut it. Instead of ‘80s-style furniture, which was mostly brightly colored and disposable looking, today’s poolside lounges are comfortable, sturdy, and stylish.
Trying to decide the best look for your poolside space? If you don’t have a particular style in mind, let the design of your home and the area you live in influence your outdoor space. For example, if you live in a modern Miami home, go for a sleek, streamlined vibe. Or, if you live in a Colonial in the South, consider an elegant, traditional look. No matter what you choose, make sure you have plenty of seating for guests, and consider adding a few umbrellas to provide shade and add an interesting design element. Also, don’t forget the sunscreen.
