It is lovely to have a nice set of patio furniture available whenever you want to enjoy the outdoors. Many people work stressful jobs and have busy lives and coming home to enjoy nature and relaxing is something that is very important to encourage balance in our lives. Most people do not relax enough. You can choose from a comfortable patio furniture chair surrounded by pretty plants and scented foliage or a swing chair or rocker if you want to rock yourself into a better frame of mind while watching the world go by. You can mix and match both styles and even plan a water feature such as a outdoor fountain, to help set the tranquil mood.
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.
Wooden patio furniture is the most popular. Many varieties of wood are used for making outdoor furniture and some are more durable than others. This means that outdoor furniture made from the less durable varieties will need regular attention like painting, staining or oiling. With some woods, e.g. pine, this maintenance may be as regular as every year. The more durable timbers are jarrah and teak and usually a quick oil or stain every 2 to 3 years is ample. Sometimes, wicker furniture is painted. However, it does not need a great deal of attention.
Iron patio furniture never goes out of style. Whether you opt for antique elegance or modern simplicity, furniture made of wrought iron is always considered classy. Having these kinds of outdoor furniture speaks volumes about your personal decorative style. It shows that you are fashionable and have exquisite taste in furniture. Plastic chairs and tables can be easy and laid-back, but they undoubtedly look cheap. That is definitely not the case with iron furniture. Sets of outdoor iron furniture give your guests the impression that you care about quality and you go the extra mile to provide only the best. Wrought iron furniture has sophisticated and intricate detailing. They are usually crafted artistically which makes wicker and plastic outdoor furniture look indistinguishable and outdated in comparison. With the timeless appeal iron furniture offers, your patio will surely be a visual delight for many years to come.
Both rattan and wicker furniture is a less expensive alternative to hardwood, if you want to have furniture that is made from natural sources. These types of patio furniture don`t require a lot of maintenance and can be used in or outdoors all year long. It`s also possible to change the outlook of Wicker or Rattan furniture by giving the furniture a new coat of color. So, if you`re inclined to change the decor of your patio frequently without buying new patio furniture every time, then wicker or rattan furniture would be the best choice for you.
