The external space of the house can develop according to different conformations – whether it is a balcony, a patio, a large terrace or a garden – and it can hide potential that is often underestimated.
Considered as a real extension of the livable environment of the house, in the warm seasons this space is particularly exploited, only to remain a simple corner without particular functions.
In both cases, furnishing it in a beautiful and functional way can make it even more usable. On the market it is possible to find furniture designed for every type of need. Such furnishings, such as outdoor wardrobes, if chosen in the right way, they help to enhance the environment giving continuity to the interior of the house e they can also represent additional storage space and place everything that does not fit in the house or what we need when we are outside.
How do you choose the outdoor wardrobe?
Outdoor wardrobes are an interesting complement both to furnish and therefore give a personal style to the outdoors, but also to store objects and tools that we do not know where to keep at home, without the balcony or terrace being messy.
There are outdoor cabinets of different shapes, functions and materials, designed to satisfy any need. But there sure are factors to consider before choosing.
To buy the outdoor wardrobe that is right for us, we must, for example, calculate the space available and the place: where will it be located? What space is available?
Once these questions have been answered, we must also be careful resistance to atmospheric phenomena evaluating if the place where it will be placed is covered by a canopy, a veranda or is completely open.
Based on this we will then have to choose which material is best suited to withstand rain, wind and UV rays. The ones that most resist and adapt to climatic variations and bad weather are aluminum, PVC and resin. But if the wardrobe is still covered, materials can also be evaluated such as wood, rattan and bamboo.
So check that it is treated to withstand rain, to sudden changes in temperature, to attacks of mold and fungi and to UV rays.
The intended use is also important: if our aim is to cram what does not find space in the house, we will have to focus on outdoor wardrobes with shelving, drawers and optimization of the available space.
Otherwise we will be able to focus more on aesthetics and on design which may also be less conventional to better characterize the space taking into account the other elements present (tables, sofas, plants, chaise longue, carpets, vases, etc.)
Once these considerations have been made, we can devote ourselves to choosing the most suitable outdoor wardrobe. Here are some proposals.
