When looking to buy an “designer furniture” set you need to take one essential factor into account before paying for one. That important factor is the weather.
Weather considerations – Why is the weather so important? Natural elements affect almost every matter that exists in our time and space and designer furniture’s are not exempted. When making a purchase, you will want to buy a furniture set that’s guaranteed to last long. You cannot make the right decisions if you don’t know the materials used in making designer furniture sets. Common materials used in making them are Plastic, Bamboo, Wicker, Metal, Glass, Concrete and Wood. The most common ones among these aforementioned materials are plastics, wood and aluminum so we will explore these three options briefly.
Wood – Wooden furniture’s are quite common because they are quite cheap when compared to some other materials and they are also easily available. As common as wooden furniture’s may be, they may not be suitable in areas that are prone to rainfall. This is because when exposed to weather elements like rain it begins to wear and tear. For wooden furniture’s to last long un outdoor spaces they need to be treated regularly to prevent fungal decay, rot or swelling. If you prefer wood however, you can settle for teak wood. Teak contains silica which protects against fungal and termite infestation and should their appearance fade overtime, they change into a glowy color that people find still find attractive.
Plastic – Plastic acrylic is another common material found in many designer furniture store. Plastic furniture sets are highly demanded for private and business purposes because they are cheaper than glass made furniture’s for example and they are also weather resistant. These days, manufacturers have started producing plastic sets that spot beautiful patterns and colors. Plastics are waterproof meaning that should the rain come pouring down without warning you won’t need to worry about your furniture going bad. If you must use plastic furniture, go for a waterproof option for added protection.
Aluminum – Aluminum furniture’s are known to last several years if handled properly. If you are thinking of going for a set that represents value for money you may want to go for one produced with aluminum. However, it is important to note that aluminum materials tend to corrode if their protective coatings weaken.
Whichever material type you go for, ensure that it is one that will last long so you dont have to spend extra cash ordering a new set of designer furniture.
