Outdoor furniture

  • Choose waterproof materials
    • One key consideration is to use materials that have been proven to endure rain and humidity. Weatherproof galvanized steel and concrete composite, water-resistant synthetic wicker, and teak, which is naturally weather-resistant and fungus-resistant, are just a few examples. Acacia wood is another great outdoor material, although it takes more maintenance than its metal-based counterparts.
  • Choose your cushions wisely
    • When shopping for outdoor pillows, opt for fabrics like durable Sunbrella, which are designed for outdoor use and will resist fading. Make sure all the cushions you use outdoors are intended for outdoor use, they contain fillers that resist mold and mildew.
