With springtime just around the corner, the time to think about your outdoor patio and deck furniture is now. Before we jump into the benefits of sturdy, durable, stylish outdoor furniture, let’s check up on the basics: have you protected your outdoor furniture properly throughout the winter? Hopefully you have covered your patio and deck furniture with water resistant coverings to keep the winter rains or snow off of the places where you’ll be sitting all summer with your friends. Even if you have covered your outdoor furniture, check under the covers to see if there are any signs of rust or other damage caused by the winter elements. If there has been damage, the time has come to restore your patio and deck furniture.
Durability is the Key
The number one aspect of long-lasting patio and deck furniture is durability. You have to make sure to only purchase furniture that will last in the sun and under a covering of some sort in the winter. Some deck furniture will be damaged in cold, wet conditions even when properly covered, so make sure your next outdoor furniture set is built to last even in winter storage conditions. Often times, the finish of metal furniture will tell you all you need to know about how durable the table or chair is. A side table, for example, with a smooth, shiny finish is more likely to hold up in the outdoors longer than competitors.
Don’t Forget the Cushions
Seat pads are perfect for adding some more comfort to a sturdy, durable chair, couch, or loveseat. Whether the furniture is wicker, metal, or wooden, seat cushions are a must have for patio and deck furniture. Once you have stylish, comfy cushions for your family and friends on the patio, you’ll want to protect them as best you can from wet conditions. Cabana Coast cushions are made with water resistant material, and cushion and furniture protectors are available.
Creating an Ensemble
Think about your patio or deck as another room of the house. When you decorate the interior of your home, you think about the aesthetic appeal of the room as a whole, not as the sum of all the knick knacks and pictures you have on the wall. You’re thinking about the overall ambiance of the room. Treat your patio the same way. Your patio and deck furniture should fit into the area’s overall charm and ambiance. Each furniture piece should flow and complement the others. Think about color, finish, material, line, and structure of the patio as a whole with the furniture you need to make it part of your home. This process is more than making sure that your patio furniture all “goes together”, it is about using your furniture to create a comfortable and friendly space for your friends or customers. The furniture should not only fit in with each other, the pieces should bring out the natural beauty of your outdoor patio or deck area.
