Without wind chimes, the wind blows through and there’s no music to be heard. With wind chimes, you’ll feel the song of the wild come through your patio. Which one do you prefer? Well if you’re here, we assume you’re a wind chimer. In your search for the best wind chimes, there are a few things you should consider first. From the sound it makes to the way it looks, we’ve found some basic characteristics you need to look through before making your purchase. Here are a few things we’ve found that will help you pick out the best wind chimes for you!
Chime Material: Some like the beach, some like the mountains. Picking a wind chime material is entirely up to your preference. Whether you’re looking for something to match your outdoor decor or something to match your personality the material really does matter.
Sound: The last thing you want is a noise complaint. Finding a wind chime that doesn’t annoy the life out of you is just as important, if not more important than the chime’s material. Better yet, if you can find a wind chime that plays a specific song, you’ll have an audience outside your porch every night!
Length: Finding a wind chime that reaches all the way to the floor might be a challenge, but the length of your wind chime can change the way it sounds, too. Look for a wind chime that will fit into your space perfectly to avoid the clanging against walls, tables, and chairs.
Base Material: Knowing what holds your chime together is key. Wind chimes are meant for the outdoors, but if your base doesn’t hold up in the weather, neither will your music. Find a sturdy base material to keep your chime together for years to come!
Outdoor Safe: If your wind chime plans to find a home outside of the house, you’ll need to ensure its outdoor safe. A sharp wind chime that breaks could cause injury to you, your home, plants, and animals. Be sure to double check that your new chime is safe for everyone!
Guarantee: We all love a good guarantee. If your wind chime chips upon arrival or doesn’t make a sound when the wind blows through, you’ll want to get a new one. Find out if a guarantee covers these things before having it sent to your house!
