Types of Outdoor Furniture
Wood - hardwoods (teak and kwila)
Teak wood has a natural wax and is recommended for outdoor furniture. The wax gives the wood stability and durability because it is able to withstand harsh weather such as rain. Kwila furniture makes the outdoor surrounding looks fine and easy to maintain. The wood has beautiful appearance and grain. The furniture is also durable due to its natural oil which makes it waterproof.
Aluminium is a good metal for outdoor furniture because it is lightweight, durable and rust free. Most furniture is finished with powder coat which works as an anti-corrosive barrier. This also improves rigidity and strength of the furniture. The aluminum outdoor furniture is ideal if made from high quality aluminum tubing and professionally welded joints.
This type of outdoor furniture is not common because is too expensive to purchase and maintain.
The furniture is made of polythene or polypropylene and fiberglass strands may be added to strengthen the design. Plastic furniture is available in different shapes and colours.
This type of furniture is cheaper compared to stainless steel or aluminium furniture. To make the furniture durable, powder coat and galvanizing protection layer are preferred.

Outdoor Furniture Tips.
1. Always choose or insist on good quality furniture.
2. Make a list of what type of furniture you want.
3. Buy the furniture you will manage to maintain.
4. Choose a stylish colour for cushions.
5. Have a budget and ensure you stick to it when purchasing the furniture.
6. Sit down before you buy. Comfortable outdoor furniture will be used all the time so make sure what looks good is also comfortable.
7. Go for easy to care for materials. You should use most of your garden time enjoying the space, not maintaining furniture. Go for more easy to care outdoor furniture. Most teak, cedar, metal and weatherproof wicker pieces can take whatever nature throws at them.
8. Think of storage. You can add years to the life of your outdoor furniture if you store it in a protected location like a basement or garage in the off-season. If the toughest furniture will last much longer if it’s stored well when not in use.
9. Think of quality. You get what you pay for. Plastic chairs and side tables might look nice in the show room and will keep their looks for maybe a few years out in the sun, but they will lose their colour and get brittle in time. Check consumer reports and online reviews before spending a lot.
10. Choose furniture that is built from strong materials that will stand the test of time – look for sturdy frames and resilient materials like wicker, rattan, metal, solid timber or other hardwoods.
