Planning for warm weather days by the pool? We FINALLY got our poolside area set up with the BEST pool deck furniture and it's truly made this my favorite place to relax!
When we first moved into our home here in San Diego, I had visions of pool parties, BBQs, and I knew that our backyard pool area would be the center of it all. Now, 2020 put a LITTLE wrench in the works….but you know what? We still used this area a TON (I am SO thankful for this pool).
Luckily most of this area was set up beautifully, we had some great bar stools for the area around our BBQ. But as the weather warmed up again THIS year? I wanted to finally get the rest of this area ready for summer fun.
This area of the yard is the perfect pool deck. We had a nice section of unused space, and it was ideal for sitting and watching the pool. I had visions of a pina colada (or a smoothie) in my hand, a great book on the side table, and lounging in a perfect chaise lounge chair while Lydia jumped in the pool.
My only issue? I didn't want to spend a TON of money, and outdoor furniture can get pricey pretty quickly. I did a bit of research and ended up getting everything for under $800.
Our Pool Deck Furniture
The most important parts of our pool deck furniture to me? Comfort and durability. We wanted pieces that would LAST for a number of years (they are an investment after all) and that we would ACTUALLY get a ton of use out of. We had quite the family debate about what type of furniture to get. I wanted the chaise lounges since we already have barstools and a wraparound bar area to eat at. I thought the lounge chairs would be perfect for relaxing and enjoying the outdoors. We also considered rocking chairs or regular outdoor arm chairs.
Now that they've arrived, and we've had them for a few weeks…..THESE WERE THE RIGHT CHOICE. We absolutely love these lounge chairs, and use them almost every day. I work from outside, we sit outside in the chairs after dinner and read. Lydia's biggest complaint is that we have two and she wants her own.
And the final item? We got covers for the chairs. Yes, these are important. Want to be sure that your pool deck furniture lasts? If you live where it snows or rains a TON, I'd store it inside during those months (clearly not a huge issue here in Sunny San Diego). But the remainder of the year? You'll still want to cover the furniture when not in use for a bit. These covers have worked well for us, we use them when going out of town or if we won't be using the pool deck furniture area for a few days. Highly recommend!
