Materials used in outdoor furniture. The most common materials that are used in the making of furniture are wood, aluminum, plastic and also wrought iron. As the wooden outdoor furniture can easily suffer because of the exposure to various elements, it essentially has to be treated. Teak is also a very commonly used material for garden or outdoor furniture. It contains natural silica and this makes it highly resistant to any type of fungal decay. Most of the effects of water and also chemicals are put away because of silica.
While many would say such decorations and added detailing for the outdoor furniture can be stored inside the house, it would be a complete hassle to go back and forth indoors especially when the outdoor space is frequently used. You don’t wish to go trudging in and out in the afternoon to bring cushions to your outdoor seats. Or, have to fetch table linens or placemats from your stock room when you decide to take dinner al fresco every day.
