We intend to explain all we know about patio furniture. We will discuss what kinds of furniture are included in the phrase “outdoor patio furniture”, what materials they can be made from. What to look for when choosing your own outdoor setting, how to look after it and how to get the best out of it. We hope you will find plenty of information here to help you make the best choice for you and your outdoor space.
What is outdoor patio furniture? Basically any furniture that you use outside, but it is generally designed to withstand the elements. Most patio furniture is made of durable, easy care materials that survive rain, wind, snow, sun and hail. Some materials last longer than others. We will discuss this in a another article. Most common types of patio furniture are obviously tables and chairs(called sets if purchased together), porch swings or rockers, chimeras , chimeneas(or other forms of heaters), umbrellas, BBQ’s, benches, gliders, hammocks, steamers, chaise lounges and basically anything you like.
