Patio furniture, there are obviously a variety of beautiful and practical materials to choose from. But how do you pick the one? That's right for you and how you live. Hopefully, this video will help you make the right choice.. One of the more important decisions you'll need to make is what type of material should you choose for the frame of your set. Aluminum furniture is lightweight and easy to move.
Pull a chair into the shade rearrange to accommodate unexpected guests, but it's also durable and stands up to the elements.. Aluminum does not rust, but does form aluminum oxide a hard material that protects the aluminum from further corrosion. This oxide can dull the look of your furniture, but can be removed with simple soap and water. Because it's so tough aluminum is often used by hotels, restaurants and public pools. It also doesn't conduct heat as well as other metal, so it doesn't get as hot when sitting in full sun, but it's also beautiful. Finishes, adhere well to aluminum, allowing for smooth surfaces and a wide choice of colors and unique designs..
Steel is heavier than aluminum. While it's not completely impervious to the effects of weather, modern, primers and paints can help keep rust to a minimum. Steel does respond to temperature, so it will be hot or cold to the touch depending on the weather. So if your area experiences extreme weather, keep that in mind. Steel furniture is highly durable, but only requires minor maintenance and can be protected against rust with a coat of car wax..
Another popular choice is all-weather wicker. Today's low-maintenance woven resin material is versatile, durable and available in distinctive weaves and natural-looking colors. Unlike traditional painted wicker made from natural materials, the surface won't peel or flake. All-weather wicker lives happily indoors or out and is great for sun rooms, porches or patios, and all of our all-weather wicker sets are hand woven. So if you like the traditional look of natural wicker but are concerned about the beating, it can take from the elements all-weather resin wicker is a great alternative.
Always a classic wrought iron is a highly refined form of iron. That is a popular choice for small patio. Dining areas or bistro-style seating due to its durability. Because it's so sturdy, it's comfortable and safe for people of all sizes., It's rust-resistant, but not rust-proof, so it may need occasional maintenance or paint touch-ups to protect any exposed raw material and maintain the consistency of the surface. Last but not least, the weight of wrought iron means it won't be blown away in strong winds, but it isn't difficult to move. Now the natural warmth and beauty of wood are always appealing, and each species has unique.
Properties. Teak is the most popular wood used in patio furniture and is known for its beauty and durability.. The oil content in teak acts as a natural preservative, which is why it can remain outdoors with little or no finish. If untreated it does weather to a soft silvery gray patina, but it also polishes and takes varnish well. Teak won't rot warp, shrink or swell making It ideal for climates with temperature extremes.
