Patio furniture that is chosen sensibly adds to the relaxing atmosphere of your patio and can actually be the focus of a calming effect on your senses. This is because there is nothing like a well maintained patio to give you the perfect atmosphere to unwind after a long day at the office. Patio furniture is available in a variety of materials including teak, bamboo, wicker, wrought iron, plastic and redwood. Each material has its own followers, but teak patio furniture is by far the most popular among consumers today. When shopping for patio furniture the prime consideration has to be the quality of the material. This is because the patio furniture is installed outdoors and is hence exposed to moisture, sunlight and sometimes rain as well.
When planning to build a patio, the kind of furniture you are planning to use will definitely affect the design of the patio. For some people, they plan their patio depending on the kind of patio furniture they like. For others, they buy furniture which blends with the theme or design of their outdoor living areas. The important thing to remember is the furniture should bring a homey feeling to your patio. Patio furniture usually includes a dining set, benches, rocking chairs, throw pillows, cushions and other accessories. Many stores sell furniture for outdoor living areas in sets. This means that customers can usually see different furniture with the same designs. For those who do not want uniform designs, they can mix and match from a wide array of furniture.
Most patio furniture is designed to withstand years of exposure to heat, rain, a little wind, and the sun. However, the harsh ice, snow, and wind that generally arrive during the winter months can dramatically shorten the life of your patio furniture. The following tips involve a little elbow grease and possibly some minimal purchases that will effectively minimize the wear and tear on your patio furniture during the winter months.
There are a number of options available for the covering or wrapping of your patio furniture sets. Ideally, it would be nice to move your furniture into a garage, shed, or basement where it is dry and sheltered. However, there are very few people that have the extra space available to store bulky items like patio furniture. If this is the case for you, there are still great methods for protecting your furniture if it must stay outdoors during the winter months.
Cleaning Wicker Sets: Wicker sets can be made of true rattan or synthetic rattan. Often, the wicker is sealed with some sort of finish to protect the material. 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 need repair or repainting while the set is clean and dry. Cleaning Metal Sets: Most metal sets are sealed with a powder coat finish to ensure a longer life.Using a mild soap with warm water and gentle scrub brush or sponge, clean the surface of your furniture.
