Cleaning Cushions & Umbrellas: Many Deep Seating Patio Furniture Sets include substantial cushioning, while other sets are accented with optional cushions or pillows.Brush off any debris on cushions and umbrellas. If cushions and pillows have removable covers, wash and dry them according to manufacturer instructions. If cushion covers cannot be removed, use mild soapy water and a sponge to wipe off any dirt on cushions. The same technique can be used on the umbrella. Let the cushions, pillows, and umbrella dry completely before storing.
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.
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.
The size you choose is very important. When deciding on size, you need to leave room on the patio for people to move around. This is most important if you entertain regularly. Your guests should be able to freely mingle. A good idea is to make a diagram of your deck to scale and then cut out some pieces of paper to represent your furniture. By placing these cut-outs in various positions on the patio drawing you will be able to see if you have sufficient room. Choose furniture that will not clutter the area. If room is limited then choices like extendable tables and fold up chairs can be the answer. Excess chairs can be folded and stored until needed. Tables can be extended when necessary.
Weather resistant materials are the best option when going for patio furniture. If your patio is an enclosed space as in covered by a roof then you need not bother with the elements and can go for the most elegant and stylish designs available irrespective of the material. Patio furniture needs to be carefully placed and cleaned because this is the first feature of your home that is noticed by guests. A well maintained patio is a sight to behold indeed.
