We know that researching and trying to decide on which patio furniture to buy can be very challenging. Too often are these questions asked without any solution. Look no further, we have provided 3 helpful tips on how to buy outdoor furniture that lasts!
Invest in Good Quality
Buying patio furniture should be considered an investment, not a cost. Outdoor furniture is not given as much attention as it deserves. Indoor furniture can take precedent however outdoor furniture has to go through much more wear and tear. Patio furniture has to be UV resistant, weather resistant, and mold resistant. That is why it is important to do thorough research and possibly spend a bit more to get better quality.
Check the Details
Although some patio sets may look beautiful if they are not properly built you may run into problems a few months down the road. This is why it is extremely important to check all the details of the patio furniture that you want to purchase. Many of these details can be found online, in a catalog, or at the store. This is especially important with the type of material the furniture is built with. Resin wicker, cast aluminum, and stainless steel are materials that will last long and will not disappoint. These types of material will stand up to all the elements for years. It is also imperative that when you are browsing for patio furniture in person that you make sure it is sturdy and solid. Testing it out in the store can help you make a decision as you will be able to see if the furniture is right for you or not.
Pay Attention to Cushions and Fabric
Outdoor cushions and fabric are just as important as the patio furniture itself, especially when it comes to quality. Cushions and fabric designed for the outdoors are specially made so that they are weather resistant, water resistant, fade resistant, and dry quickly. We recommend purchasing 100% solution-dyed acrylic as it is stain and fade resistant, water repellent, and offers unsurpassed durability while providing up to 98% UV protection. With the Quick Dry foam option available you can now buy cushions that allow water to drain efficiently and lets fresh air circulate freely.
