Deck Patio Furniture
Deck patio furniture is especially for your outdoor living space which deserves to be dressed for comfort and in your style.
Here at home improvement and financing we try to encourage visitors to build a patio deck design the right way...
- but when it comes to the furniture
- the choice is yours
You may be surprised by the different styles and materials now available to help you create the right look for your home.
Wood Deck Furniture
Wood and cushion deck patio furniture is widely available in many wood types and tones from teak and oak to cedar and redwood etc...
Choosing a cedar or redwood deck furniture set means that your purchase should last longer because of the stability of the wood and due to the self protecting properties of these woods against insects and decay - as well as the beautiful finish.
Wicker Deck Patio Furniture
A hot favourite for outdoor furniture has always been wicker - finished off with a stain or painted pastel colors or the ever popular white - there are many styles to choose from with higher or lower backs or broader arm-rests to chairs or loveseats.
Resin Based Furniture
Don't be put off by terms like 'plastic' - quality Resin products are different and they often meet the needs of a busy lifestyle - plus this material is so adaptable meaning that they are available - not just in wood tones - but also in many bright hues of colors and tones.
Luckily special materials like "resin" have entered the scene to bring us deck furniture that looks and feels like a traditional wicker but will often last a lot longer and are easy maintenance - they can even be hosed down after a windy day to get the dust off.
Wrought Iron Outdoor Furniture
The advantages of wrought iron is in its strength and design potential. Most traditional designs have highly ornate legs while modern design now available have a more smooth finish.
Wrought iron furniture is a great contrast to a quality wood deck, especially if it has also be used for deck railing spindles.
Matching or Contrasting
The choice you make will probably reflect the materials you have used for your deck or patio, if you used Redwood or Cedar for your decking boards - now is the exciting time when you can decide on deck patio furniture that matches the wood you have used or contrasts with darker or lighter materials.
You may also decide depending on the material you used for your deck railing designs - whether you incorporated black wrought iron spindles or created a distinct deck railings design pattern using wood or glass.
Deck Patio Furniture Cushions
- Most Materials for outdoor use are prepared for wear and weather but should always be stored away or covered when not in use.
- Bright colors will fade if not protected from the strong rays of the sun.
- An elegant plain creme woven fabric will be easier on the eyes as time goes by than a busy pattern.
- Pleasing floral patterns that reflect the flora of your garden will help bring your garden, outdoor living and home together
Outdoor Furniture Sets
Buying a complete set will be more economical, sets are usually available from two chairs and a table to two chairs, a loveseat and a table.
Matching furniture with the same color or patterned cushions will give your patio or deck a chic finish.
As we are building bigger and better - Decks and patios are growing in size and larger, more comfortable outdoor furniture is being produced to meet demand - and this means usually means that they are more comfortable.
Deck Benches and Patio Loveseats
The perfect addition to any set would be a deck bench - the best buys are those with seats that open up to provide ideal water tight storage space for seat covers.
Deck Patio Furniture Storage
Deck boxes are becoming ever more popular because they provide a water-tight storage space for your soft furniture cushions, as well as for pool toys and swimming aids - and a great place to keep the book you are reading.
Deck boxes are different sizes and shapes to meet your storage needs - with horizontal deck storage and vertical deck storage sheds.
But deck boxes are also used for other purposes - like acting as a deck cooler where you can store refreshing drinks on ice and make a perfect addition for family gatherings and entertaining on a deck or patio.
The release plug at the bottom of deck coolers allows you to release water at the end of the day once the ice has melted.
