Whether you choose weather proof furniture or need an outdoor furniture cover to protect the furniture you do have, making smart decisions about protecting your investments means you’ll enjoy newer looking, more comfortable furniture for years to come.
Who Needs Furniture Covers?
You can virtually eliminate the need for furniture covers if you shop wisely for outdoor furniture in the first place. Look for steel or iron framed furniture with a removable outdoor furniture cushion. No weather is going to degrade properly forged wrought iron, and all you’ll have to do is find a free space in the garage or basement to store your outdoor furniture cushion over the winter months. Teak outdoor furniture is also a great solution. Teak’s natural resistance to water and rot make it perfect for outdoor uses (it was the wood of choice for building decks on boats for centuries for just this reason). And as teak does weather, it actually gets better looking, taking on an antique, weathered, silver appearance.
There are many various of outdoor furniture ranges available, from traditional wicker patio sets to modern and functional garden tables and chairs . If you are searching fashionable couch sets to transform your garden into a comfortable and deluxe outdoor place, a modern rattan furniture range will be the finest one to prefer.
Durability and Thickness
These qualities go hand in hand. Keep in mind that your outdoor furniture covers get whipped around during large storms and high winds, and if they’re not built solidly enough to withstand the punishment they will fray and tear, especially when placed over furniture with sharp edges or corners. Also, don’t forget that your furniture cover is going to be taking the beating from the sun, rain, snow, sleet, and wind that you’re saving your furniture from. In that respect, it doesn’t pay to cut corners when it comes to buying thicker material and a furniture cover material that is guaranteed to last.
