Depending on where you live, your outdoor or garden furniture will be exposed to different weather elements throughout the year. These weather elements can end up destroying the furniture, forcing you to go out shopping for new ones. It does not have to be so because there are a few things you can do to ensure your outdoor furniture lasts as long as possible.
Place Furniture in Covered Areas
This might not be feasible for everyone but if you have trees on your property, you can observe which areas are often covered and place your furniture there. The furniture will be less exposed to the weather elements, but this is an option you should only use if you do not have an alternative. A better option would be to build a pergola over your deck or porch and place the furniture there. Doing so will leave you with protected furniture as well as a pergola.
Use Weatherproof Furniture Covers
We have all seen car covers out and about, but did you know there are weatherproof furniture covers too? These covers protect your furniture, but they do a lot more too. One, they help keep dust away from your furniture and, two, they also prevent the growth of mould. These covers should be used in addition to placing your furniture in a shaded or protected area which is not inside the house or structure. The edge of the shaded area can get wet during heavy rains destroying the furniture. You do not want to buy an outdoor furniture set to only have it destroyed because you did not protect it as well as you should have. These covers are great if you think you will not be outside for a few days and are a must if you leave your furniture outside during the winter.
Buy a Pillow Deck Box
A pillow deck box is simply a box that you use to store your pillows. You can store the pillows when they are not in use so that they are not out in the open. These boxes are also great for storing toys if you often have a lot of those lying around in the garden.
Choose Weather-resistant Furniture
Sometimes, no matter what you do, the weather will still get you and destroy your outdoor furniture. To reduce the chances of this happening, shop for furniture made of weather-resistant materials. Garden furniture made of PE (Polyethene) rattan can withstand the weather elements very well. The outdoor tables Vidaxl are made from this material and are thus very resistant to the elements. Their construction materials, regular washing and covering will help keep them in top shape for years to come.
Store Your Furniture Inside
There is no better protection for your outdoor furniture than your house, garage, or other inside space. This option is great when you know you will not use the furniture for extended periods or are going on vacation.
You likely have spent a lot of time researching and shopping for the perfect outdoor furniture. If you do not want to do this again soon, you should protect the furniture in any of the ways discussed above.
