What Type of Furniture is Best for Your Patio?June 3, 2022 Outdoor Living, Outdoor Style Show
The right patio furniture adds to the overall design of your patio and invites you and your guests to live in the space.
With so many options available, it can be challenging to find pieces that work best for your lifestyle and design.
Here’s a quick guide to some of the most popular patio furniture options.
Wicker Patio Furniture
Outdoor wicker furniture is typically made of a synthetic resin woven into a wicker pattern. It’s a popular choice because it’s durable, easy to clean, and lightweight enough to be moved easily.
Look for wicker furniture made of a synthetic resin with of High-Density Polyethelene (HDPE). Less expensive wicker furniture is often made from PVC. However, PVC is not as durable and may crack and peel more quickly.
Wrought Iron Patio Furniture
Looking for something a little more substantial? Wrought iron is one of the most durable types of furniture. You can find handcrafted pieces that last a lifetime.
When it comes to wood outdoor furniture, we usually recommend teak. Many people are attracted to its durability and natural look. Due to its natural oils, it can withstand some of the most extreme weather conditions.
Teak tends to take on a grayish patina over time, so it’s recommended to have it refinished at least every two years.
Aluminum Patio Furniture
Aluminum is the most common type of outdoor furniture due its budget-friendliness. Despite a lower cost, aluminum furniture is lightweight and hold up well.
Cushions and Pillows
Water-resistant cushions normally come with your outdoor furniture. But you can always refresh the look of your outdoor space with new cushions and pillows.
Look for cushions and pillows that are made of weather-resistant materials that can withstand moisture and long periods of sunlight.
