Patio Furniture Materials
PatioLiving only carries brands that manufacture the highest quality products and use the highest quality materials. Some materials are more suited for certain environments than others, so choosing what material your furniture is made out of is a crucial step in the buying process. Aluminum is a great lightweight material that is easily portable. Aluminum is great for outdoor furniture you want to rearrange often like dining chairs
. Cast aluminum is heavier than aluminum but is more durable. Cast aluminum will work well in almost any outdoor residential or commercial space. Wrought iron outdoor patio furniture is some of the toughest, strongest furniture on the market today. Wrought iron is extremely durable and is usually crafted into stunning, intricate designs. Wicker has always been a very popular patio material, however today all of PatioLiving’s wicker furniture is made of synthetics. This “all-weather wicker" looks like the natural material but has added durability and strength. Wood outdoor patio furniture is gorgeous, and ages gracefully. Wood is a great outdoor patio furniture material because it’s resistant to corrosion and decay. Recycled plastic is an eco-friendly and sustainable material that’s a great choice for nature lovers. Recycled plastic furniture is made from post-consumer plastics but mimics the look and feel of real wood. Resin is another great synthetic material that is durable and can stand up to the elements. Resin furniture is low maintenance and is perfect for pool-side lounging. Steel is a great material for outdoor patio styles because it’s insanely strong and durable. Steel is easily fabricated, so steel furniture is available in a wide range of frame styles and designs. Teak outdoor furniture is a great investment because it gets better with age. Teak outdoor furniture’s natural silvery patina is what makes it a great material in addition to its durability and resistance to harsh weather conditions.
