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.
Patio furniture used to be just plastic lawn chairs and matching plastic tables but it has evolved since then. There is new outdoor furniture technology available and there are many new styles and materials to choose from, when planning what kind of patio furniture would suit you and your house. There are many types of outdoor furniture available, no matter what your budget is. Your personal taste needs to be taken into consideration, as does how often the patio furniture will be used and what kind of climate you live in. You need to think about how the outdoor furniture will be used, whether it is going to be used for dining, around a swimming pool or just a comfortable place to sit, relax and enjoy the sun. If you can choose something that looks good and matches your décor and surroundings, your friends and family will love visiting you and relaxing in your new outdoor garden furniture.
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.
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.
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.
