Teak Outdoor Furniture - Where Function Meets Beauty
The wonderful thing about choosing teak outdoor furniture is that you have such diversity. From chairs to benches to tables and more, teak is the perfect wood for outside entertaining.
Grown in tropical rainforests, teak is naturally saturated with oil, making this an extremely durable wood. In addition, teak is strong so you have the confidence of using this as your outdoor furniture week after week. Although you will usually spend a little more for teak outdoor furniture, knowing each piece will last and last, it is well worth the small investment.
One of the most beautiful additions to any deck or patio is a full patio set. With teak outdoor furniture, you get a sturdy table and matching chairs. Depending on the manufacturer you buy from, such as Kingsley-Bate, you could choose from styles in-house or buy a one-of-a-kind style.
Regardless of the choice you make, you will love the beauty of teak wood. Some people prefer to let teak wood season naturally in the sun, adding a light coat of sealant as protection. However, some people will actually paint their teak outdoor furniture although most manufacturers cringe at the thought of painting teak.
When you begin shopping around for your teak outdoor furniture, in addition to the quality of the wood, you also want to consider other things such as the construction of the furniture. For example, you should look for joint construction of mortise and tenon or tongue and groove, both which provide top stability. In fact, there are some teak outdoor wood designers that actually build the pieces with double dowed joints for added strength at points of stress.
In addition, ask about the finishing process of the teak outdoor furniture. In this case, you want to look for furniture pieces that have been kiln dried appropriately as a means of preventing cracking and warping and you want to choose pieces of furniture that are void of any knots. When working with the manufacturer or furniture designer, if at any time they are hesitant in answering your questions, then you would do best to continue your search.
You also want to consider the guarantee offered by the manufacturer. Remember, teak outdoor furniture is respectable wood that should be cared for properly. Because you will be paying a little more for teak, you want to make sure you are provided with a guarantee just in case something should happen.
Without doubt, teak outdoor furniture will outlive your other types of furniture, both indoors and out. Therefore, you have every right and the responsibility to ensure you are buying only the best available quality. Top grade teak is not hard to find but take time to research and ask questions. In addition to a patio set, you will find beautiful tables, planters, lounge chairs, standard chairs, and many other wonderful pieces, all beautiful and the perfect way to enhance your patio or deck.
