Materials used in outdoor furniture. The most common materials that are used in the making of furniture are wood, aluminum, plastic and also wrought iron. As the wooden outdoor furniture can easily suffer because of the exposure to various elements, it essentially has to be treated. Teak is also a very commonly used material for garden or outdoor furniture. It contains natural silica and this makes it highly resistant to any type of fungal decay. Most of the effects of water and also chemicals are put away because of silica.
These outdoor furniture are generally available in three forms. All of them consist of tables and chairs in different numbers and designs. Patio dining sets are apt for the large outdoor area like a huge porch area or a large patio. There are dining sets also available for these large areas. The Bistro sets are apt for small areas like the balcony of an apartment or a small 6 by 6 garden. The third kind is known as the conversation set. They mostly include a sofa and few chairs with a coffee table. These are also apt for larger areas as they include many pieces and are good for large group gatherings.
Outdoor furniture that is also called as patio furniture or garden furniture is that type of furniture that is specifically designed for any type of outdoor use. It is made typically of materials that are highly resistant to weather. For example aluminum is a highly weather resistant material which does not rust at all.
One can also use chairs instead of full sets. Lounge chairs are just perfect for the outdoors. These are made up of metal, wrought iron and synthetic material. These are in vogue nowadays as they are available at lower prices and offer the same sophisticated look like metal or iron furniture. These are also available in teak or hardwood but those are a bit on the expensive side.
Garden furniture is perfect for sitting and relaxing in the outdoors whether it is a barbecue party or a pool party. These are nowadays available in a variety of designs. These look sophisticated and are multifunctional. One can get them in different materials like wrought iron, bamboo, teak as well as other kind of woods. One can easily find one which will suit the décor of one’s home.
