Outdoor chaise lounge chairs are must-haves after a busy day or week so you can relax in your backyard, around the pool, or at the beach or camp ground. There are tons for types to choose from so we have handpicked a few varieties perfect for letting you relax around the house.

TRADITIONAL

These aren't your parent's outdoor loungers. They're more stylish and high tech, but are still suitable for your backyard, beachside lounging, or camping. Enjoy your choice of reclining positions in these recliners that are extra durable, and some even have flexible materials that help release tension in your back.

Chairs from companies such as Strathwood, Faulkner and Lafuma also feature zero-gravity or anti-gravity technology to relieve muscle tension and stress, and are light and easily transportable.

You can buy traditional chaise lounge chairs with or without padded seats or armrests, and many now provide padded headrests for extra ergonomic support.

KID FRIENDLY

Your basic, white or off-white resin chairs is perfect for busy parents looking for easy maintenance. You can clean up kids' spills very easily and won't mind the dog chewing away at the chair legs.

Resin lounge chairs, such as the Roma Lounger, the Caribic Lounger, and the Adjustable Resin Chaise, all provide the easy adjustability to any position that customers expect. Some resin recliners also come with storage and wheels for easy transportability and storage.

However, there are also more stylish and upholstered resin lounge chairs, such as the Charleston Resin Wicker Chaise Lounge or the Home Rolston Wicker Double Chaise Lounge. These recliners will beautify any outdoor patio or entertainment area.

ULTIMATE COMFORT

For sophisticated style, longer lounging and a more sumptuous feeling, any resin outdoor chaise lounge chair from the North Cape collection will hit the mark. They provide comfortable armrests and many provide plenty of wiggle room. Cushions may be extra, but they're worth it.

Some Strathwood chairs maximize comfort by allowing you to lounge at gentle angles. For couples who want to cuddle, consider the Home Madaga Wicker Double Chaise, or the North Cape International Port Royal Double Adjustable Chaise Lounge for a snugger cuddle.

RUSTIC, YET ELEGANT

If you prefer a more cottage or lakeside feel, International Home's Mariscal Lounger is an ideal rustic outdoor chair. It boasts elegant craftsmanship, warm colors, and is made of eucalyptus wood from sustainable forests making it weatherproof and durable.

The Premium Adjustable Hardwood Outdoor Sunlounger Chaise is a similarly appealing rustic choice made from 100 percent sustainable yellow balau. It slides out to a full reclining position and has a large-sized drinks tray.
