Buying patio furniture can be intimidating since there are so many types to choose from. Your patio is an extention of your home, as well as a relection of the taste and preferences of you and your family. The fact is, having patio furniture is just a great way to enjoy a nice summer day or night. When you are choosing your patio furniture, first, of course, you must consider the space available to you. There are many pieces you can choose from including coffee tables, small drink tables and side chairs for you to just sit and enjoy a beautiful day. But what type of material should you get? Here are some ideas of different types of patio furniture that may be right for you.

If you are looking for something traditional, use wrought iron. Wrought iron has a very distinct and comfortable look. It is incredibly durable and solid, and will remain in place even in strong winds. While this choice isn’t much for color, you can decorate using colorful cusions and umbrellas. Wrought iron works well in any garden setting. The new powder coat method used today keeps it looking elegant and beautiful for years to come. Wrought iron is practical and low key. Although with time all iron will rust, and may need a little touching up in the future.

If you want something a more contemporary, you can choose aluminum frames with colorful cushions, slings, and straps. This style of furniture works well with pool side settings because of the fact that it can float, in case your furniture finds its way into the pool. Aluminum frame furniture has generally wider feet and comes with replaceable nylon glides. These glides will prevent scratching from your deck material. Just in case your furniture does get scratched, most manufacturers provide touch up paint to repair minor nicks. Cleaning and maintenance of aluminum furniture is easy and inexpensive, since there is no sanding or refinishing involved. Just a little soap and water is all you need.

Teak wood patio furniture is particularly known for its durability. Much easier to maintain than other materials, it has the potential to last for years without becoming worn and rotted. Teak furniture is reminiscent of an old English garden, and is comfortable with or without cushions. Wooden furniture is typically light weight and easy to move around if need be. A perk of  teak wood furniture is that it doesn’t need to be covered or stored in threating conditions.

No matter what look you are going for, whether it be a small setting or possibly even a whole new room for your home, be creative. The choice is yours.
