Outdoor accessories and furniture come in different form, styles, colors and different material. It is your questions now, what to choose. If you carefully design the setting that you need in your garden and the nature of your design and the garden would make you choose the best material option for the furniture.
As outdoor furniture comes in different material, we can see what are they and how they differ from each other. One major type is wood, which is the most popular material type used for furniture and the most elegant and durable material chosen by almost every country in the world when forming furniture. Among those wood, Kwila and Teak remain two of the most renowned ones which are known to be the best durable and rich looking woods that are expensive. These two are commonly found in South East Asia and in some of the Pacific islands. Kwila has got the natural wood colour and quite durable and Teak too is durable as it is hard and it has got a natural waxiness.
Apart from these two there are some other popular woods used for furniture. Even though the patio furniture in Melbourne are mostly done using wood, Aluminum too remains to be a popular material for them. Its light weight and durability make it a good material for furniture making especially for the outdoor ones. However aluminum ones should be made with a high quality coat finish of powder since it works as an anti-corrosive method and it increases the toughness of the surface.
Stainless steel is another popular type of material used for furniture for outdoors as it is known to be one of the strongest materials. The common grades they come in are 304 grade and 316 grade which is a high quality marine one. They are required to be included higher content of nickel since it helps reduce the discoloration of the surface. The finishing form of stainless steel differs as it comes in different types namely brushed, natural, electro polished or polished.
Concrete too can be used to make products for outdoor use. As concrete is very strong and heavy, it is the best material to make furniture that are strong and heavy which should not be blown around. However concrete items cannot be brought from one place to another as they are heavy and permanently fixed to one place. However currently there is a new type of concrete which is called still concrete that is basically light weight. In this the weight has been reduced and can be easily used in furniture making.
