Choosing a colour palette
Wondering how to paint outdoor furniture? Let’s start by selecting your colour palette. Go for shades that will fit with your existing garden design and your plants. For example, if your garden is filled with bright flowers, choosing darker furniture colours will let the flowers pop event more.
To channel feel-good summer vibes, brighter colours like yellow, orange, bright blue and hot pink are a go-to. For something that will last through the seasons, opt for colours like navy, natural wood and beige. This will provide a great base so you can change up the soft furnishings as the seasons change.
Top tip: Use sample pots to make sure you’re getting exactly the colour you want and always go with a wood paint that has been specially formulated for exterior use. This will ensure your chosen colours last longer. Go for exterior grade colour pigments, as this means the colour you choose is the colour you’ll see for years and years.
