Choosing the correct outdoor furniture, like tables, chairs, and sofas are a great way to relax in style and comfort. Thoughtful planning will ensure that your outdoor living space is inviting for years to come.

Choose easy-care materials and pieces that compliment that look of feel of your landscape and home.

Here are some options:

Natural wood. It is sturdy and comfortable, but it will require regular maintenance and preservative treatments for weather and UV protection. Choose weather-resistant woods like redwood, teak, cedar and cypress that require less maintenance.

Rattan and Wicker. Natural materials like rattan and wicker provide a casual, comfortable look for your deck, but they will require weatherproofing every few years. Synthetic rattan and wicker has a resin finish that will last a lot longer.

Steel and Wrought Iron. Both materials are extremely sturdy, but will need cushions for comfort. They’re great for the outdoors, but will need to be painted or treated periodically with a weatherproof finish to prevent rust.

Aluminum, Plastic and PVC. These materials are rustproof, lightweight, inexpensive and easy to maintain with a little soap and water. However, because of their lightweight construction, they may need to be secured in high winds and storms.
