In a perfect world, every chair would do everything we needed it to do all the time, but this isn’t a perfect world and even the best outdoor chairs have their limitations.</br></br>With the exception of convertible chairs, a good chunk of <a title="Outdoor Seating" href="https://www.atgstores.com/outdoor/patio-furniture/outdoor-seating/" target="_blank">outdoor seating</a> is either rigid or reclined; you sit straight up or you lounge. The former you can probably picture, and the latter are comprised of your <a title="Adirondack Chairs" href="https://www.atgstores.com/outdoor/patio-furniture/outdoor-seating/adirondack-chairs/" target="_blank">Adirondacks</a>, gravity chairs, chaises, loungers and the like.</br></br>So, not knowing what kind of outdoor relaxation you’re going to want from day to day, if you could only pick one – which one would you pick?</br></br><strong>Rigid Outdoor Chairs</strong></br></br><span style="text-decoration: underline;">Pros</span></br></br>Cost: The quintessential lawn chair is going to offer you rock-bottom pricing, which is its greatest asset. You can pick up a four-pack of these babies for next to nothing at a yard sale that’s probably happening down the street from you right now.</br></br>Versatility: They can be used for dining, as part of a conversation set or as a place to let leaves gather in fall, because of the aforementioned great prices! But, then there are nice ones, too – lots of flexibility there.</br></br>Mobility: When compared to loungers, this is huge. You can move an outdoor recliner, but it’s not always easy.</br></br><span style="text-decoration: underline;">Cons</span></br></br>Comfort: You can’t recline in them, and sometimes the economy models are a bit uncomfortable.</br></br>Durability: Some of them are tough, but some are not. This isn’t so much of a con as a weakness sometimes found in a low-priced chair.</br></br><strong>Outdoor Loungers</strong></br></br><span style="text-decoration: underline;">Pros</span></br></br>Comfort: You just can’t beat lounging outdoors on a nice day. Think about this: You never get into that position unless you expect to be there a long, long time. That’s what makes it so great.</br></br>Durability: Loungers are built under the presumption that people will be lying on them, which demands a minimum standard of durability and balance. Lawn chairs, on the other hand …</br></br><span style="text-decoration: underline;">Cons</span></br></br>Mobility: In a strict comparison, they’re just not as easy to move as patio chairs. But, some of them do come with wheels.</br></br>Cost: They’re usually more expensive than your average lawn chair, and that’s to be expected.</br></br>Versatility: You won’t be eating in a lounger unless you’re doing it like the Romans, preferably with someone gently waving a palm frond over you.</br></br><strong>Results</strong></br></br>We usually waffle, but this time we’re going with patio chairs. Versatility rules the day when you don’t know what the day is going to bring. But, it’s always good to have an <a title="Chaise Lounges" href="https://www.atgstores.com/outdoor/patio-furniture/outdoor-seating/outdoor-chaise-lounges/" target="_blank">affordable chaise lounge</a> as a backup!
