What Materials Are Commonly Used for Outdoor Furniture?
Rattan, wicker, synthetic fabrics, plastic, wood, aluminium and steel are commonly used materials for outdoor dining and lounging furniture. These materials are tested and designed to hold up to the elements, such as sunlight and moisture.
Echo Grove uses a combination of natural and synthetic materials to craft pieces that are both functional and aesthetically pleasing. For instance, the Pretzel outdoor seating range features an aluminium frame coated with rust-resistant powder and thick rope weave. Olefin outdoor fabric accents create a bohemian aesthetic, perfect for outdoor lounging.
Can I Leave Outdoor Furniture Outside All Year Round?
Outdoor furniture can generally withstand a range of weather conditions, but we recommend taking additional precautions to extend the lifespan of your furniture such as constructing permanent shade in the form of roofs or umbrellas to avoid fading and drying caused by prolonged exposure to sunlight or moving the furniture into shaded areas when not in use.
Outdoor furniture is made to survive the effects of harsh weather but using waterproof covers during heavy rainfall will prevent moisture from seeping into the furniture and reduce the likelihood of mould and mildew growth.
What Factors Do I Need to Consider Before Buying Outdoor Furniture?
When buying outdoor furniture, we suggest considering the following:
- Functional Needs
Think about how you plan to use your outdoor living space. Will you be hosting BBQs or dinner parties often? If so, an outdoor dining piece like our Resort Extension Dining table should be on your list. You can transform it into a smaller table for more intimate get-togethers.
Consider the different ways you’ll be using your outdoor furniture so you can prioritise pieces that best suit your needs.
- Environmental Factors
Do you live in an area prone to rainfall or are you blessed with sunshine all year? Know the natural elements in your outdoor living space to choose outdoor furniture that can best withstand the natural elements in your area.
When buying steel or aluminium furniture check whether they are coated with rust-resistant powders and paint to protect them from heavy rainfall. For example, our Resort Outdoor Stacking Chairs are made with this and UV-resistant PVC to avoid discolouration from too much sun exposure.
- Aesthetic Preferences
Just because outdoor furniture is made with durable and weather-proof materials doesn’t mean it can’t be pretty. The natural colours and textures of rattan furniture are versatile — you can opt for a coastal, tropical or boho-chic vibe.
When picking out outdoor furniture, you don’t have to sacrifice style or uniqueness for functionality. The pieces you choose should complement the aesthetic you already have or serve as the inspiration for a new theme.
- Space Availability
The size and scale of your outdoor furniture can make the space feel roomy or restricted. It’s important to measure how much room is available so you can select pieces that will fit.
TIP: Pairing a few wicker chairs with a glass table to make narrow decks and patios feel airier. If you have an expansive poolside, indulge in outdoor daybeds and a complete outdoor dining set.
