Sunlounges are a particularly relaxing form of outdoor furniture. This is because sunlounges are designed especially for what their name entails – lounging in the sun! Although lying in the sun isn’t recommended due to risks of developing skin cancer, you can still enjoy lying on a sunlounge by your Brisbane pool under a nice shady umbrella.
Sunlounges have been part of homes and especially homes with pools, for decades. Vintage and Retro sunlounges are still around, with bright prints and cushions or metal and wire detailed frames. Most people are familiar with the banana sunlounge – an easy to fold, colourful vinyl sunlounge that was very popular during the 70’s and 80’s, and still available today!
These days, the most popular styles of sunlounges are made from timber or aluminium. Both types have their advantages and choosing which style to buy depends on other existing outdoor furniture, style of house, style of pool and surrounds, presence of shelter and other factors. Both sunlounges usually have an adjustable back, so the user can be sitting upright, to lying down flat and other degrees of reclining in between. Kwila timber sunlounges look beautiful and timeless and are usually used with a full length cushion for comfort. The cushion should be made of hardy acrylic canvas to withstand outdoor conditions. Timber sunlounges often have wheels attached to the back legs to allow easy movement of the sunlounge. Aluminium sunlounges are very popular these days as a lot of outdoor furniture is made from aluminium. Lightweight and easily adjustable, these sunlounges usually have their own cushions or fabric attached to the frame. Whichever style of sunlounge is chosen, they are an essential part of outdoor living, especially beside the pool. Keeping your eye on the kids in the pool can be done in extreme comfort!
