Built for looks and longevity, the best outdoor furniture can garner designers' praise and withstand weather's abuse. Still, after a few seasons on the porch or around the pool, your furnishings may start to show their age with rust marks, mildew, or stains not exactly a desired patina.

Whether your items are made of wicker, wood, metal, fabric, or plastic, the general care tips below, as well as the proper cleaning and maintenance instructions for each material, will ensure that your chairs, tables, and cushions look beautiful for years to come.

 

 

When it comes to decorating your backyard space, a few fresh details can mean the difference between a garden-variety area and a fully realized outdoor room. A lush alfresco setting is rooted in ample seating, hardy fabrics, and a healthy dose of fun.

Garden furniture has really made strides. It's not just folding chairs and wicker anymore. No matter what kind of space you have, these chairs, rugs, and swings will help you thrive and flourish in your zone. Most lumbers used for outdoor furniture naturally resist decay and withstand the elements.

Although sealants help preserve color and protect against wear and tear, they aren't necessary. Left unfinished, the wood acquires a silvery-gray patina and requires little maintenance. To protect from ultraviolet rays, dirt, and moisture, or to preserve restored color, seal the wood.
