For those who love spending time in the sun – whether that be at the beach, poolside, or just on your outdoor patio – finding ways to improve this already failsafe way to relax in summer is always on the list.

Often found poolside (if you’re lucky enough to have a backyard pool), it is increasingly popular for outdoor settings – especially in summer. So, if lying down with a wide-brim hat, a refreshing drink, and a good book sounds like an activity you’d like more of this season, then you’re at the right place. 

Below, we’ve curated our edit of the best sun loungers that are made to complete your outdoor patio setting this year.

Can you leave sun loungers outside?

Depending on the material of your outdoor sun lounger, you should be able to leave it outside in all weathers. Plastic, metal or synthetic materials are all fairly weather resistant and can be left outside come rain or shine. Certain woods, such as teak, are more weather-resistant than others, but you may want to consider covering your wooden outdoor sun lounger or stashing it somewhere inside during the wetter and colder months to ensure it lasts as long as possible. Alternatively, you could consider a wood stain to help protect your lounger from the elements.

How to choose the best outdoor sun lounger for your space

When investing in outdoor furniture, there are a few important factors to consider. The first is the space itself, as you want to ensure that any furniture you buy isn’t going to crowd your outdoor area, and you want enough space either side of your lounger to walk around it.

You will also need to consider the material of your outdoor sun lounger and how much maintenance you are prepared to put in. Wooden furniture looks beautiful but may need more care, upkeep and weather-watching than outdoor sun loungers made of other materials such as synthetic fibres or plastic that can be left outside in all weathers.
