When talking about an outdoor furniture, the first thing people think of are the modern pieces they see in the many interior designer online and offline magazines. Don't get me wrong, being trendy is great, but when it comes to furniture, you budget probably doesn't allow you to do that on a regular basis. So, when buying new furniture pieces for your outdoor space, durability and longevity should be the first things to consider.
Even though today's technology and industry has evolved a lot, the statistics show that wooden furniture pieces or to be more precise timber garden chairs and table sets are the most favourite choices among buyers. Besides its quality and material properties, timber furniture pieces like outdoor timber garden chairs, tables, benches, etc., allow you to style and combine with different materials, creating a more comfy and cosy atmosphere. Simply said, outdoor furniture made out of timber is a great investment, and here's why:
Natural, Quality and Good Looking
When looking for the right furniture for your patio, quality should be one of the first things on your mind. Outdoor furniture pieces should be quality and sturdy, they need to be able to withstand all weather conditions and not to get damaged after the first rain nor lose their colour after some time under a burning sun. Out of all types of patio furniture, timber has all of the aforementioned properties. Thanks to its natural oils and rubber, timber has its own natural protection against sun, water, and insects as well as heavy rains. The natural oils also offer a protective layer against dry rot, as well as against fungi and parasites.
Pricier but Affordable
Due to its many incredible properties and qualities, it is understandable for timber to be pricier than other types of wood. But don't let the price fool you. Yeah, it is true that timber is pricier, but look in the long run; you are buying this outdoor timber set to serve you a long time, not just for one season, making it an affordable option.
Easy to Maintain
Lastly, since timber is a durable material, it doesn't need any special treatment or maintenance. You just need to remove any possible stains, dirt, and dust once or twice a year and that's it. In case you stain it with red wine, barbecue or tomato sauce, you will need to use a special cleanser for timber which won't cost you a fortune. For maintaining its colour, you can use any type of oil to coat timber or use specialized products for sealing.
