With these considerations, one furniture material that is very ideal for outdoor applications is rattan. Rattan is one of the most durable and long lasting natural materials used in furniture making. Although, rattan is a little expensive, it lasts long and is very easy to maintain and clean. Rattan also has a natural appearance that goes perfectly with the natural environment that patios offer. Moreover, rattan patio furniture offers an aura of relaxation and elegance that no other outdoor furniture can offer. To top it all, when rattan wears off its luster because of environmental exposure, it can be conveniently revived by applying lacquer or varnish.
If you have a large patio with plenty of room, you may want to consider getting a entire patio furniture set with multiple pieces. Sets may include chairs, coffee tables, sofas, lounges and/or sun beds. With so many components to choose from in the patio furniture realm, mixing and matching sets is easy. You and your guest will always feel comfortable moving from a chair to a lounge for example after a meal. Having a conversation around the table while drinking beverages, then getting cozy with your spouse on a sofa is another ideal situation. Remember, as long as you have the space you can maintain several different types of furniture. For smaller sized patios such as those included with condos and apartment complexes, you will have to compromise on what you get. Unless you have more space indoors to store extra patio furniture, you may want to get a table and chair set rather than sun beds and a sofa. Couples with no children will find a few chairs and a coffee table suits them just fine in most cases.
Wooden patio furniture is very popular and lasting. In general, wooden patio furniture can stand up to the elements like very hot sun or summer storms pretty well. However, if you decide to use wooden patio furniture you should treat it with a water resistant coating to protect it from drying out in the sun or becoming damaged from being out in the rain. It is a good choice if you do a lot of entertaining because it's very strong and rigid, thus can accommodate people of all different sizes. It's also simple to change the look of wooden patio furniture with just a new coat of paint in the color of your choice. Good quality wooden patio furniture can be expensive but if you carry out regular maintenance of painting or protective coating on the wood every few years, the furniture will inevitably last for a long time.
