How much ever one likes to stay at home, it is difficult to resist enjoying the outdoors on a sunny afternoon, with a snack and a drink. And along with the good food and company, good outdoor furniture is equally important. Though markets are filled with furniture made of steel and iron and plastic, there is something special and unique about owning wooden outdoor furniture.
Wooden outdoor furniture is available for every single need of the user, in the form of dining tables and related equipment, lounging and relaxing furniture, flooring, and decorative pieces. These range from simple picnic tables to elaborate setups, complete with grills and bar counters in wood. Available in both classic and vintage designs to cater to your historical taste, or in extremely contemporary and quirky forms, handcrafted by the best designers in the business, there is always a wooden piece waiting to adorn your outdoor space.
Usually, wood from trees like cedar, eucalyptus, oak and teak are used to make these pieces of art, and hence they cost a little more, in comparison to their steel and plastic counterparts. It is important to ensure the wood used is weather resistant and durable. One’s choice of wood depends on a number of factors like color, need to move the furniture, cost, durability of the wood and its life expectancy.
While trees like acacia and cedar provide wood which is light, thereby easier to move, but not very durable in terms of harsh weather and insect attacks, redwood and teak prove to be slightly more expensive, but long-lasting. Experts on the subject suggest that darker colored wood, found in the center of the trunk, is more durable and stronger and is called the ‘all heart’ part of the tree used to make the furniture. Unique furniture makes your garden area great.
