Choosing the right design and shape of furniture is same as important as choosing for the inside home. And what I believe is that outdoor furniture needs more consideration while bringing home. Outdoor furniture needs to be sturdy, water resistant, durable and of course beautiful. Thus, check the quality and think about the material that will last.

What material to choose

Choose a material that will last long like a metal one, whereas if you’re choosing a plastic one that will need high maintenance. Though the plastic is reasonable and light weight as compared to metal, but it will not stand long in adverse weather condition. But if you want a furniture that you can lift and move around the places, then the plastic furniture is a good option.

Wrought iron and aluminium furniture are heavy and ideal for windy weather. As it is hardwearing this has to be left outside permanently. On interval, this furniture can be refreshed by new paints. Just rub it off the rust and brush off and put it paint. If you will not do that, it will pit the surface of the paint once after drying.

Wooden furniture is eternal yet enduring and will suit both traditional and modern styles of garden. This furniture only needs re-staining or re-oiling for being durable. This furniture is again not hard to lift at places and can be moved inside and out easily. This just needs to be saved from sunlight to eliminate damage.

How to Care Garden Tables and Chairs

Whatever furniture you’re choosing, that needs protection. Hardwood furniture needs teak oil to protect from the climate elements and keep it looking new. Just make sure, the furniture is dry or sands it with fine-grade sandpaper. Try to add more than one coat of oil and make sure it dried thoroughly before the second application.

If you want to restore your furniture’s original look then you can use wood restorer for coloring. Just put a paint and let it dry and then wash off, this will make your furniture new.

For plastic furniture, simply wash it down with soapy water to get rid of dirt or stubborn stains. Try to use a sponge rather than a piece of cloth, to avoid scratch or marks on the surface, and rinse thoroughly and dries.

And if you don’t want to perform any of the above tasks then you can go for a quick spruce up by running the brush over the surface of furniture's like wood, plastic, metal or fabric to get rid of any loose dust, dirt or cobwebs easily. With following above few tips, you can go along with your furniture for many years.
