Teak furniture has always been a popular choice. The wood itself looks great in the outdoors and the natural characteristics of wood makes it ideal for the patio. Teak has natural oils that help protect it from insects and plant growth. The oils also protect the wood from moisture and prevent it from rotting. Teak is also a very durable material and can last for years.
On the other hand, another alternative for natural rattan furniture is the synthetic rattan furniture. Since this furniture is made of plastic, it is more resistant to outdoor environmental conditions. Synthetic rattan furniture is also more popularly known as artificial rattan furniture. While these furniture pieces offer the same natural elegance that rattan furniture offers, these also offer greater durability, more color options, and even lower cost. In addition, with synthetic rattan furniture, you don't actually have to regularly retouch it to maintain its shine and luster, as most plastics are processed to have long lasting luster and shine. Moreover, contrary to most plastic products, the fibers used in artificial rattan furniture are non toxic, recyclable, and environmentally friendly.
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.
