Although wrought iron patio furniture can be a bit more expensive than plastic and wicker, it costs considerably less than furniture made of aluminum or teak. This makes it a very affordable furniture option for homeowners who desire timeless elegance. You can get an iron outdoor furniture set for as low as $450. While the same set made of aluminum is about $950 and a teak furniture set can be priced well over $1,300. Wrought iron patio furniture can give you timeless elegance, durability and versatility that no other kinds of furniture can provide. With this kind of furniture proudly showcased in your outdoor living area, you are assured to enjoy its aesthetic value, comfort and functionality for decades to come.
Rattan (originated from a Malay word - Rotan) is technically a tree, although it grows like a vine along the ground. They are usually found in the tropical regions of Africa, Asia and Australia. The rattan vines are cut and peeled, then steamed to make them pliable, and then they are used as rattan weaving materials. Rattan furniture can be made of stripes of Rattan that are woven together when the wood is wet. It can also be strips of Bamboo or other materials woven around straight rattan slats. Rattan easily accepts paints and stains like many other kinds of wood, so it is available in many colors and it can be worked into many styles.
Cleaning Wood Sets: Wood sets can vary, from a classic picnic table to a set of Adirondack Chairs. Using a mild soap with warm water and gentle scrub brush or sponge, clean the surface of your furniture. Allow the furniture to air dry completely, or use a towel to dry. Address any areas that require sanding, painting, or staining. If the wood has a natural finish, consider rubbing a furniture oil or mineral oil into the surface to keep the wood from splitting or becoming brittle during dry winter months.
Because quality outdoor furniture is made to withstand the elements, you may wonder whether protective covers are really necessary. Patio furniture covers provide an extra layer of protection to help keep your outdoor furniture in good shape, to prolonging its life. You should consider using them anytime your furniture won`t be in use for long periods of time or if you expect severely inclement weather.
Iron is probably the most durable material when it comes to outdoor furniture. It has the ability to hold a variety of weights and sizes making it an excellent material for tables and chairs. Wrought iron patio furniture can withstand all sorts of weather elements. The luster of plastic and wicker furniture tends to fade after being subjected to harsh weather conditions. But that doesn`t happen to wrought iron since it has a low carbon content which allows the furniture to remain strong and beautiful even after undergoing adverse weather conditions. Furthermore, iron is so durable that you need not replace your outdoor furniture as often as you would if you had furniture made from a less durable material.
