Beach Chairs come in an assortment of styles. Some are easily transportable, like the folding beach lounger, some allow you to lie down flat and others have more substantial frames and are designed for use at home only.
Timber loungers are more generally used at home or in resorts since they're more substantial and more durable than their transportable counter-parts. The chair part can be available in a variety of varying materials from rattan to cotton and may have removable covering. Cleaning is a consideration when the chair is going to be used outside since certain materials easily absorb suncream and may look grubby and unpleasant pretty quickly.
A portable lounger is appropriate for just about any outdoors occasion. It is possible to take them camping, to the beach, to concerts or sports events. They are light and frequently fold down, although a few are said to be portable just because they have wheels. In such situations a better label for them might be "movable" but really this depends on the weight.
Usually, a beach lounger will have less padding than the ones that are made for use in the home, in your garden or conservatory. Plus, as expected, the frames will be not so hard-wearing. They are also designed to open out flat which is especially handy if you like to stretch out on your tummy to sunbathe or read a book. Some enable you to vary how far it is possible to tilt back so you can just put your feet up and unwind, sit completely upright or recline well back for sunbathing or napping.
Some have more complicated concepts. Even when a lounger chair reclines to a horizontal position it is often uncomfortable to read as the only way to do so is to hang over the edge of the lounger. This leaves your head without support and your arms at awkward and uncomfortable angles. The Ostrich beach lounger has resolved this difficulty by intentionally placing holes in the beach chair.
The primary hole is for the head. When sitting in a normal position it is covered by a head support or cushion that's flipped back when you want to utilize the head aperture. Lower down there are a couple of armholes which let you reach through and turn the pages when reading a book which must be placed on the ground under the outlet for the face.
As is the case with any purchase it is very important to think about exactly what you would like before you go to the store. At it's most basic, are you seeking a beach lounger or perhaps a more enduring chair/recliner. Would you need to shift it around? Will it be used inside a conservatory or outside where it is going to be open to the elements?
