Whether you are excited because it is almost fall and Patio Furniture is starting to go on sale or if you live in paradise where the sun never stops shining choosing the right color for your patio is incredibly important. Not only because you will be stuck with that color throughout the season and it has to represent you, but also because different colors will have different effects.
As much as darker colors are the most neutral and go with more objects in your garden/patio they are also absorbent to heat. So, when you sit down on that Navy cushion in your shorts it is going to feel a lot hotter than lighter colors, you will also end up sweating more on it. Same thing goes with your umbrellas and canopies.
These colors may not hide the dirt better, but they are cooler then the darker ones.
Sometimes with these metal arms on patio furniture you need a caution sign with how hot they can get. Therefore, it is important to have a patio umbrella. Keeping those arms cool will help you not burn yourself while relaxing.
I know you have heard before that brighter colors are more susceptible to fading. While that is true, having neon orange, green and yellow cushions for your patio will fade faster than the darker colors, fabrics and dyes have come a long way. Vivid colors are made to last and not dull or fade as quickly. So, enjoy your bright, eye popping furniture.
At the end of the day, choose the patio that will make you happy. With today’s advancements in fabrics and dyes the color is going to look great regardless. So, pick up that red umbrella and add life to your backyard, or go basic and clean with a beige one, the choice is all up to you. All that matters is that you transform your boring backyard into a comfortable area for you to relax.
