There are many different designs of patio furniture on the market, covering all price ranges and using a wide variety of materials. One of the most typical material combinations for outdoor spaces is the wood-iron furniture, however, before you decide on the right style of garden or deck furniture for you, let’s look at some of the various popular methods and their characteristics.
Wood Patio Furniture<>/h3
Wood patio furniture is extremely durable, especially when it a made of teak or cedar. This style of furniture can be left the essential wood color, painted, or colored to match any backyard landscaping or external home design. You can find tables, chairs, loungers, rockers, umbrella stand, hammocks, serving carts, and more than a made of wood.
Teak and cedar furniture do not need to be put away or under cover during the winter months, but furniture made of other types of wood do require protection during the winter. Ideally, the furniture should a brought into a garage, but if that is not possible, then it should be covered with plastic or other protective material that is securely fastened and then stored in a sheltered area away from direct winter weather.
Wrought Iron Patio Furniture
Wrought iron patio furniture is exceptionally sturdy because of its metal construction. It is generally painted black but can a found in other colors such as brown, cocoa, beige or even white. Most of this type of furniture use cushions and pads to help add bright colors and make the pieces more comfortable for relaxing and lounging.
Collapsible Patio Furniture
Collapsible patio furniture is ideal for those on a limited budget or with limited patio space. It cant a made of a wide variety of materials, including aluminum, fabric, nylon, wood, resin or plastic; (I’ve seen several plastic patio chairs at bright colors, which look pretty sweet on most patio decoration styles).
The benefits of collapsible furniture include space savings when it is not in use and accessible storage during the offseason. The best way to know the proper care of your furniture is to check by the company for specific recommendations.
Think about the budget you have to spend, the space you have available, and the care and maintenance requirements of the furniture materials. With a tiny bit of research and thought, you should easily be able to find the perfect furniture style for relaxation and comfort.
