The color of your patio furniture is very important as it needs to harmonize with your patio. Most wooden patio furniture is stained or oiled and so retains the natural grains of the timber and, because of its natural look, often blends in to most patio styles. Metal or iron furniture will only come painted for durability reasons. However, the right metal furniture can look good in many styles of patio. For that tropical feel, wicker garden furniture can look great. Wicker furniture is usually left in its natural state and can add an earthy relaxed feel to you patio.
Once you have cleaned and dried your furniture and accessories, try to consolidate the pieces to minimize the space that will be required for storing everything. Stack chairs, remove cushions, and dismantle any components that might be susceptible to damage. Select a storage location that is as sheltered from the elements as possible. If feasible, bring your fabric items inside for the winter, or consider putting them in a sealed tote or plastic bag for dry storage. There are a number of commercial patio furniture covers available on the market for a variety of patio furniture types. These covers are usually made from heavy duty canvas that is sealed to keep out moisture and protect from damage. Other options could include having your set professionally wrapped in plastic film or simply using a large tarp that can be secured with rope or bungee cords.

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.
