Advantages to Teak Outdoor Furniture

Teak is one of the most popular materials used in furniture design. It is trusted by manufacturers and interior designers alike to give your body proper support. But can teak be used for outdoor furniture? Yes! Here are the advantages of choosing teak outdoor furniture for your home.


Unbeatable Durability


Teak is valuable for both its elegance and durability. Unbothered by harsh weather like heavy storms and blistering heat, teak is one of the strongest hardwoods on the planet, making it perfect for outdoor furniture. Teak can hold screws and nails well, rarely taking damage from overuse like plastic outdoor furniture often does. Moreover, thanks to its imperviousness to rotting and termites due to the abundance of natural oils inside the teak base, it is almost impossible to damage a piece of teak outdoor furniture.


Extremely Versatile


No matter the type of outdoor furniture you need, you will find a piece of teak outdoor furniture perfect for your space. This is because teak is an unusually versatile material; tables, benches, chairs, sun loungers, and storage cabinets can all be made from teak.

This furniture can be left 'natural,' so your furniture can blend in seamlessly with surrounding nature, or it can be painted, stained, waxed, or varnished to match the style of furniture you have in mind for your home. We recommend purchasing outdoor furniture that is of a similar style to the furniture inside your property, so it feels like an extension of your home.


Low Maintenance

Even if it is furniture is left uncovered outdoors, teak outdoor furniture will not be damaged by excess sunlight. Instead, when exposed to direct sunlight for long periods of time, the wood's color will slowly change until it is a beautifully weathered silvery grey that will reflect the sunlight around your outdoor space, creating a scenic glow on your patio.

The only maintenance that teak outdoor furniture requires is a brief brush down and clean. This can be done with a household brush and cloth. If you want to bring your outdoor furniture back to its roots, all you need to do is give it a light sanding and polish it with a stain of your choice, and then it will look as good as new. It couldn't be easier to care for teak outdoor furniture.


Stunning Designs


The natural brown tones of teak outdoor furniture appeals to many. Tight straight grain patterning and varying textures bring an element of visual interest to any outdoor area. If you are looking for outdoor furniture that can add some color to your space, you can accomplish this with wood paint or a tinted stain. Paint bonds well to teak, and wood stains are easily absorbed into the wood's grain to enhance the design of teak outdoor furniture.
