Best Outdoor Chaise Lounge Chairs

A super comfortable, stylish outdoor chaise lounge can make relaxing in the sun into a magical experience. Sitting by the pool with a good book, or lounging in the back yard, listing to the birds chirp while you sip an iced tea, aah! But which are the best outdoor chaise lounge chairs available? We have looked at several, and have determined that the Keter Pacific line of outdoor lounge chairs is an outstanding purchase. Available as a set of two, in three color choices, the Keter Pacific chaise lounge chair is made completely of resin material, and has no metal. There is no concern about rust, and these can be placed directly in the water!

They are a little bit curvier than we would prefer, but the curves are quite comfortable, and the Pacific chair has four adjustment options for maximum configuration. And best of all, Keter covers these chairs with a two year warranty, so you can be sure they will last and last!

For a complete review, please see below.

Runner Up Best Outdoor Chaise Lounge

If you don’t need a set, and aren’t concerned about rust, the Estrella multi-brown chaise lounge chair is an excellent choice. With a classic, modern look, a beautiful white cushion, and a PE wicker weave around a cast iron frame, the Estrella looks, and feels, lovely! With little assembly, you can be relaxing in modern style in minutes.

To protect against rust spots, be sure to cover this chair when not in use, and it will last for years.

Runner Up Best Budget Patio Chaise Lounge

If you don’t want to spend an arm and a leg on a set of patio chaise lounge chairs, the Lisbon set of two chaise lounge chairs is a fantastic choice! Made of acacia wood and eucalyptus, these curved chaise lounges are striking, and portable. They fold up for easy storage, and have a handle that enables them to be moved around to the beach, the park, or wherever you need!

They are not adjustable, and the curve design prevents people from laying down on their chest, which is a negative for some. If you aren’t concerned about laying down on your chest, these chairs are quite comfortable, and great for reading.

For their price, they are an outstanding choice! For a full review, please see below.

Product Reviews

In this section, we will look in detail at five different options for patio chaise lounge chairs, consider the positives and negatives of each, and look at how they fit together in terms of budget.

Estrella Outdoor Multibrown Wicker Adjustable Chaise Lounge Chair w/ Cushion

Estrella Outdoor Multibrown Wicker Adjustable Chaise Lounge Chair with Cushion

Estrella Outdoor Multibrown Wicker Adjustable Chaise Lounge Chair with Cushion

The Estrella Outdoor Adjustable Chaise Lounge Chair is a modern, simple, elegant chaise lounge. It is well-constructed with a sturdy iron frame, wrapped in PE wicker in a stylish brown weave. The Estrella chair is available as an individual unit, or as a set of two. A water resistant white seat cushion is included in the package, which is a nice extra.

Dimensions and Specs

  • Dimensions: 77.5″ x 26″ x 14″
  • Weight: approx 35lbs
  • Constructed of PE Wicker and a iron frame
  • Easy Assembly
  • Weight capacity: 250-300lbs
  • Has Five Adjustable Settings

The Details

Estrella Outdoor Chaise Lounge Wicker Detail

Estrella Outdoor Chaise Lounge Wicker Detail

The Estrella Outdoor Multibrown Wicker chaise lounge is a beautiful piece of outdoor furniture, with some really great features. The chair is made of PE wicker, which is a high quality material that can be left out in the sun and rain without damage.

The frame is made of iron, and is solid. Though no iron actually touches the ground, some users have reported rust spots forming at the bottoms of the chair legs, so beware. It would be wise to pick up a furniture cover for these chairs if you plan to leave them exposed to the weather.

The cushions are rather thin, and are acceptable in quality, though over time you may want to replace them with something a bit thicker, and with higher quality fabric. The included white cushions are a great start, however.

Estrella Outdoor Chaise Adjustment Options

Estrella Outdoor Chaise Adjustment Options

The Estrella chaise lounge can be positioned in five different ways: four angled positions, and completely flat.

This chair can be used as a bench if it is positioned flat. Be sure to consider the weight limit if there are multiple people sitting on it.

Assembly and Care

Assembly of this outdoor chaise lounge is as simple as can be. All that is required is to attach the legs to the body, and to secure the cushion straps.

The seat cushion covers have zippers on them to enable users to unzip the cushions and wash them. The fabric is not Sunbrella, and will almost certainly get dirty over time. We strongly suggest covering the chair, or storing the cushions in a deck box when not in use.

The white cushions look great when new, but they are hard to keep clean. The good news is that they won’t fade!

The Bottom Line

The Estrella Outdoor Chaise Lounge is a lovely piece of patio furniture that is simple, built of high quality materials, and requires almost no assembly. If cared for, it will look great for years to come. For its price, the Estrella is an outstanding choice for the patio or by the pool!


Lakeport Outdoor Adjustable Chaise Lounge Chair (Set of 4)

Lakeport Outdoor Adjustable Chaise Lounge Chair (Set of 4)

Lakeport Outdoor Adjustable Chaise Lounge Chair (Set of 4)

The Lakeport line of adjustable chaise lounge chairs is stylish and contemporary, with graceful curves and a slew of options. With 18 options to choose from, you can pick the quantity of chairs in a set, the color of the wicker, and the color of the cushion (or no cushion at all!). It is shown here in the brown configuration, set of four, with no cushion.

Dimensions and Specs

  • Dimensions: 79.5″ x 27.5 x 13.8″
  • Weight: Approx 40lbs per chair
  • Weight Capacity: 250-300lbs
  • No assembly required
  • PE Wicker covering a powder coated steel frame
  • Has five adjustable settings

The Details

Lakeport Outdoor Adjustable Chaise Lounge Chair with Cushion

Lakeport Outdoor Adjustable Chaise Lounge Chair with Cushion

The Lakeport Outdoor Chaise Lounge has five angles it can be adjusted to, including fully flat. You can comfortably lay down on your chest in this chaise lounge, or use the unit as a bench should you desire to set it up that way.

You can choose to purchase them without a cushion at all, or go with cushions. The chaise lounge is quite comfortable even without cushions. Unfortunately, you cannot purchase cushion covers from Lakeport, so if you want to replace them, you’ll need to find a different universal cushion that fits, or make something custom.

If you happen to like your patio furniture in matching sets, Lakeport Outdoor Furniture sells a matching patio table to go with these chaise lounges.

Lakeport Outdoor Adjustable Chaise Lounge Stacked

Lakeport Outdoor Adjustable Chaise Lounge Stacked

These chairs are stackable, which makes storage quite convenient. That said, the legs sometimes want to collapse into the stacking position when the chairs are moved, so if you move the chair, check to make sure the legs are locked before you sit on it!

Also, by stacking the chairs, you can get away with using only one patio furniture cover to protect multiple chairs, which is helpful as well.

Assembly and Care

There is no assembly required for these chairs, just unpack them, place the cushion on (should you have purchased a cushion), and set it in the sun. Be sure to wear your sunscreen!

The Lakeport Outdoor Chaise Lounge has rubber feet that help protect the ground beneath the chaise lounge, but some users have reported rust stains forming at the bottom of the feet. We strongly suggest a patio furniture cover for these chairs, as a cover will protect the chair, the cushion, and the patio itself!

The Bottom Line

The Lakeport line of Adjustable Chaise Lounges is a great series of chairs, with several options available for customization. These outdoor chaise lounges are attractive, sturdy, solidly built, require no assembly, and are comfortable with or without cushions. What more can you ask for? These units are not the cheapest on our list, but are a great value.


Keter Pacific 2-Pack All-weather Adjustable Outdoor Patio Chaise Lounge Furniture, White

Keter Pacific Adjustable Outdoor Patio Chaise Lounge

Keter Pacific Adjustable Outdoor Patio Chaise Lounge

Keter is an expert company at making durable outdoor products, including sheds and deck boxes. The Pacific all weather chaise lounge set is no exception, and is a stylish contemporary chaise lounge set that can fit into most any decor. These are only available as a set of two, and do not include a cushion. There are three color choices available: white, charcoal, and whiskey brown.

Dimensions and Specs

  • Dimensions: 77.6″ x 29.5″ x 15.9″
  • Weight: Approx 32lbs per chair
  • Weight Capacity: 250lbs
  • Made of Polypropylene Resin
  • No assembly required
  • Has four adjustable settings
  • Two year manufacturer’s warranty

The Details

Keter Pacific Adjustable Outdoor Patio Chaise Lounge Whiskey Brown

Keter Pacific Adjustable Outdoor Patio Chaise Lounge Whiskey Brown

Unlike many of the other wicker chairs on this list, the Keter chair is not constructed of a metal frame with a PE Wicker wrapping; rather, it is made completely of polypropylene resin, wrapped in wicker, with no metal frame at all. This means that the Keter chair will not rust, as there is no metal on it at all.

For those looking to partially submerge their chaise lounge in the water, the Keter Pacific chaise lounge would be an excellent option.

There are four adjustment settings, including an option to lay the chaise lounge completely flat.

The Keter Pacific chaise lounge set is an attractive, contemporary-styled lounge chair that supplies a great deal of comfort. While it does not include a cushion, the chair is indeed very comfortable without any cushion at all.

Should you decide to purchase a cushion, you could find a universal one, or get something custom made. If you can find a cushion that’s 70″ x 22″, that will fit well. Just keep in mind that it is not easy to secure the cushion to the lounge chair.

Keter Pacific 2-Pack All-weather Adjustable Outdoor Patio Chaise Lounge Furniture, White

Keter Pacific 2-Pack All-weather Adjustable Outdoor Patio Chaise Lounge Furniture, White

The white Pacific chair does not get hot in the sun, but the two darker colors can heat up if left outside in direct sun for a while. If that happens, simply lay a towel down and lounge on that, and you’ll be comfortable.

The Keter Pacific chaise lounge set is stackable, which is always helpful. Using a patio furniture cover with these chairs is recommended, though unlike the metal and wood chairs on our list, the Keter Pacific chair does not have any rust concerns. A cover will help keep the chair clean when not in use, so it is still recommended.

Assembly and Care

No assembly of these chairs is required: just unpack them and place them where you want, and you’re all ready to relax!

To clean these chairs, Keter recommends using one of the simplest cleaners in the world. Just mix one cup white vinegar with 5 quarts water, and wash down the chaise lounges with that mixture. You can scrub away any pesky stains with a soft brush or sponge, and use an old toothbrush for the hard-to-reach spots. Hose down with water to complete, and wipe off to dry.

The Bottom Line

The Keter Pacific Outdoor Chaise Lounge Set is an excellent choice for those who are concerned about rust, or who would like to put their chaise lounge partially in water. These only come as a set of two, and do not include any cushion, so some buyers may be put off due to these issues. However, they are extremely high quality, and the lack of a metal frame is a huge plus in our eyes. The fact that they come with a two year warranty is a great extra as well. They are an excellent choice!


Lisbon Outdoor Folding Chaise Lounge Chair (Set of 2)

Lisbon Outdoor Folding Chaise Lounge Chair (Set of 2)

Lisbon Outdoor Folding Chaise Lounge Chair (Set of 2)

For those looking for a wooden framed chaise lounge, the Lisbon Outdoor folding chaise lounge chair (set of 2) is a cool, curvy, convenient option! Made of beautiful acacia and eucalyptus wood, the Lisbon line of lounge chairs is a clever design that offers a surprising amount of comfort, but is also quite portable. These are only sold as a set of two chairs, but they are sold at a fantastic price point!

Dimensions and Specs

  • Dimensions: 70.25″ x 20.75″ x 26.25″
  • Weight: Approx 32lbs per chair
  • Weight Capacity: approx 250lbs
  • No assembly required
  • Made of Acacia and Eucalyptus wood

The Details

With a gently curving, modern minimal design, the Lisbon set of outdoor chaise lounge chairs provides unparalleled beauty and comfort. The wood is finished in an attractive yellow patina. No cushion is provided, though a generic chaise lounge cushion should fit, and would likely look nice. Most users find that they don’t need a cushion, and just use a towel for a little extra buffer.

These chairs are not adjustable, and cannot be configured to lay flat. Consequently, you can’t lay down on your stomach in the Lisbon chaise lounge. If you plan to lay on your stomach on your chaise lounge, it’s best to choose a different chair.

There is a nice, comfortable head rest on the top of the chair, which is helpful. The curves of the Lisbon chair are well-designed, and while the chair is not adjustable, the position it is crafted in is fairly middle-of-the-road, and most people will find it quite comfortable for sitting, reading, and relaxing.

Some may find these chairs too low to the ground; at their lowest they sit about 6″ off the ground. For those that struggle to get in and out of chairs, a higher chaise lounge may be a better option.

Lisbon Outdoor Folding Chaise Lounge Chair Folded Up

Lisbon Outdoor Folding Chaise Lounge Chair Folded Up

These should be stored or covered when not in use. Part of the design of these chairs is a folding mechanism, and a handle, making these quite easy to store. You can also easily carry them with you like a brief case, for when you’re “working” at the beach!

Assembly and Care

No assembly is required with these chairs, just unpack, unfold, and you’re all set!

For care, simply wash down with water, and wipe clean. Be sure to keep these chairs covered, or stored away from the elements when not in use. While the wood is designed to deal with the elements, prolonged exposure to sun and rain will fade the finish, and you will need to refinish the wood. They are so easy to fold up, there’s no reason to keep them out.

The Bottom Line

As wooden chaise lounges go, the Lisbon Outdoor folding chaise lounge set can’t be beat! The price is excellent, and the craftsmanship is superb. We love the folding design, and all of the thought that went into these chaise lounges. They are quite comfortable, assuming you don’t mind being low to the ground, and assuming you don’t care about laying down flat. Positioned at a fantastic price point, the Lisbon set of outdoor chaise lounge chairs is a great buy.


Best Selling Waveland Adjustable Chaise Lounge with Cushion

Best Selling Waveland Adjustable Chaise Lounge with Cushion

Best Selling Waveland Adjustable Chaise Lounge with Cushion

The Waveland Adjustable Chaise Lounge by Best Selling Products, is an attractive, modern PE Wicker chaise lounge with included cushion. It is made of PE Wicker wrapped around an iron frame, and has some attractive modern angles without going crazy on curved designs, like many manufacturers do.

Dimensions and Specs

  • Dimensions: 76.7″ x 28.5″ x 12.5″
  • Weight: approx 30lbs
  • Constructed of PE Wicker and a iron frame
  • No assembly required
  • Weight capacity: approx 250lbs
  • Has Five Adjustable Settings

The Details

Waveland Adjustable Chaise Lounge Flat

Waveland Adjustable Chaise Lounge Flat

The Waveland Adjustable Chaise lounge is simple and classic, with a fitted white cover that looks modern and timeless. The frame is made of iron, and is wrapped in a stylish brown PE Wicker weave. It is quite sturdy, and can hold a good deal of weight.

There are five positions that can be configured in this chair, from nearly completely upright to flat. You can dial in the exact angle you need, and when you’re ready to turn over on you’re back, this chair is good to go!

It can also be used as a bench when placed fully down. Just beware of the weight limit if there are multiple people sitting on it.

If left out in the elements, there is potential for rust spots to form where the legs meet the ground, so beware. We recommend grabbing a furniture cover for this chair, as a cover will protect the frame and the chair cushion as well.

Assembly and Care

The Waveland chaise lounge requires no assembly; simply unfold it, and secure the cushion cover to the frame. It’s very simple, and you’ll be lounging in no time!

The cushion cover has two zippers on it, one at each end, to enable users to extract the cushion from the cover. The cushion can be washed, and since it is an off white/light beige, will not fade. That said, the cushion should be stored in a deck box when not in use.

The Bottom Line

The Waveland Adjustable chaise lounge is a nice, classic piece of outdoor furniture, and is suited to many uses. It is perhaps slightly higher quality than the comparable design of the Estrella chaise lounge above, though it is significantly more expensive. Unless you absolutely love the look of the Waveland, we would suggest leaning toward the Estrella as a better value purchase.

Algreen Rain Barrel Pump Kit Review

Algreen Rain Barrel Pump Kit

Algreen Rain Barrel Pump Kit

Collecting water in a rain barrel can be easy, environmentally friendly, and cost effective. However, once the water is in the barrel, the question becomes what to do with it! Most people use their collected rain to water their lawns, gardens, etc. However, rain barrels generally use only gravity to push water out of a garden hose, which is only somewhat effective, as there’s not much pressure. By adding a pump to your rain barrel, you can do much more! An Algreen Rain Barrel Pump Kit (compatible with any Algreen Rain Barrel), the pump provides significantly more oomph to the water flow, enabling you to use your rain barrel to water the lawn and garden much more effectively.

The Algreen Pump Kit is also quite helpful should you wish to chain more than one barrel together. The Rain Barrel Pump will move water from one barrel to another as needed.

This pump is a a great add-on to any of the elegant Algreen Rain Barrels on the market. It is easy to install and durable. This article provides a detailed look at the product’s functionality and specs, and reviews it.
