How to Choose Patio Furniture that Stands Up to Any Weather

High quality outdoor furnishings for your luxury backyard oasis are an investment. As such, you expect them to last for years and still retain their good looks. That is why is important to make wise choices and ensure that the pieces you select can withstand sun, rain, heat and saltwater spray. Here is a short checklist with tips for how to choose patio furniture that stands up to any weather.

What is It Made From?

The first thing to consider is the material. Outdoor furniture can be crafted from natural materials, such as wood or metal. Today there are many of synthetic choices, as well, which mimic natural materials. While raw material such as teak wood has long been a popular choice due to their natural resistance to warping, they do require a certain amount of maintenance and regular refinishing to ensure they retain their beauty through the years.

A synthetic material, such as a “rattan” created from polymers, is a great choice if you do not want to invest a lot of time in the upkeep. Stainless steel is always a durable choice, but once again it is likely going to require a fresh coat of paint from time to time. Wrought iron is another great selection in terms of its longevity as it is heavy and nearly indestructible.

Finish It Off

No matter what type of material you choose for your outdoor furnishings, do be sure it is finished with an appropriate paint or stain that is industrially applied. This is particularly important for solid wood pieces, which need to be stained with a product that makes it waterproof. Metal such as aluminum, as well, should be powder coated to ensure it is completely covered and not prone to rust.

Cushion Upholstery that Lasts

In addition to the frames, patio furniture that stands up to any weather requires upholstery fabric made to withstand the effects of sun, rain, smog and ocean spray. All our luxury outdoor furnishing manufacturers offer a selection of fabrics that are specifically designed for outdoor use. Sunbrella is undoubtedly the best-known brand but there are plenty of others first designed for marine applications that have crossed over to the consumer outdoor furniture market. Many of the materials are specially treated to resist UV rays, mold and moisture.

Also, pay attention to the support for the upholstery cushions. Vinyl polyester mesh is a good choice as it is waterproof and will last a long time when kept clean and out of the direct rays of the sun.

Cover It Up

Although you probably enjoy using your luxury outdoor furniture year-round, there are times when it makes sense to cover it up. Even for patio furniture that stands up to any weather, investing in a set of snug, custom fitted covers will go far toward keeping the frames and cushions in their best shape.
