Roomy as all outdoors, plus size is a big plus
Outdoor furniture is supposed to be relaxing, but how do you kick back in a deck chair that buckles at the slightest pressure? Have you ever had one of those scrawny wicker chairs clamp onto your caboose and refuse to let go? Those days are over now that patio furniture designers have caught on that people bigger than leprechauns enjoy the good life too. Even lanky teenagers love having the extra room to spread out. And standard patio furniture can often look dwarfed when placed on a large patio space next to a large house. Move up to luxurious plus size patio furniture using this helpful buying guide to show you around.
Elbow room at last
The second you sit in oversized patio furniture, you'll feel the difference. Notice how those armrests aren't digging into your ribs. Look at that: your knees aren't up in your face. The difference is just inches, but in a patio chair, that makes all the difference. Sit and rise with ease. Enjoy having room to breathe. You can put your full weight on heavy duty patio furniture because it's made of sturdier stuff, built to last. Real outdoor furniture for real people.
Before you buy, verify
We list the dimensions of all our outdoor chairs and couches so you know what you're getting. Oversized outdoor furniture is anywhere from 2 to 10 inches wider, and you can see exactly how much room you're getting by checking the specs. Don't limit yourself to outdoor patio furniture labeled as plus size outdoor furniture or oversized outdoor furniture, because many mainstream patio sets today offer plush roominess, too. Outdoor loveseats are built for two, but they're especially comfy for one. Consider commercial patio furniture too, because it is usually built to higher standards. Measure the outdoor furniture you have now, then imagine how much extra room would make it just right, and start looking for that size.
Tall people should also consider seat height. Long-legged loungers know nothing wrecks a chair like being too short. Your knees stick up, your back aches, and you tend to lean on the back legs, courting disaster. Just a few extra inches in seat height makes all the difference. Counter height and bar height patio furniture gives you lots of foot-dangling room. These sets are also perfect on balconies to avoid a railing taking up your view.
Bigger and better saves money
The funny thing is that heavy duty outdoor furniture can save you a lot of money. It's not that heavy duty patio chairs are expensive, but that flimsy furniture is cheap. Which costs more: buying one nice heavy duty outdoor chair in a decade, or replacing that rickety one every year? No joke, you have to include the cost of the chiropractor if you're sitting in a chair that doesn't support you properly. If you need a chair to hold 300 pounds, spend a little more to get one that can. You'll be amazed by how trust makes a chair more relaxing.
Buying right includes sticking with quality brands. The big names in big outdoor furniture include - to name a few - Winston, Telescope, and Woodard. New designs arrive every day because designers are learning that people with large patios to furnish, and a desire for roomier seating are a big market.
A broken chair and bruised behind take all the fun out of sitting outside. You deserve so much more. We're excited for you to discover the many luxurious and roomy heavy duty patio furniture sets available, so you can finally kick back and truly relax.
