Garden Furniture For Your Villa

If you have just bought a new house in the suburbs, holiday home or cabin, you'll need to furnish it of course, and choosing the right furniture can make a big difference. 

Outdoor Furniture

Of course, you'll also need some outdoor furniture, despite the often unreliable British weather, and for many homeowners, wooden garden furniture makes the ideal choice. Wooden furniture looks good and is at home in just about any setting, whether it's the modest back garden of a semi-detached, a cottage by the sea or a second home in the countryside. There are different types of wood when it comes to choosing the ideal furniture for your outdoor space, although in general wood makes a great choice, as it is typically durable and long lasting, easy to maintain and is available in a variety of styles and wood types.

Why Wooden Garden Furniture?

Wooden furniture evokes a rustic look, and even if your outdoor space is in the heart of the city, or in a suburban garden, wood can easily make you feel as if you're in the countryside. Wood is simply more appealing than other common materials, such as metal or plastic, although wood may cost you more. Furniture made from wood tends to be well built, and you may well find that it lasts you for many years when properly maintained. It typically doesn't take much work to look after wooden outdoor furniture, although you may want to treat your wood to help it withstand extremely hot temperatures, as well as the coldest winters. If you have small children who will routinely be using your outdoors furniture, that may be a good reason to get something more durable, and treat it so that it's stain proof. Wooden furniture for your garden or patio is available in a variety of styles and sizes, making it easy to find exactly the right pieces, and it's also affordable.

Types of Wood

There are different types of wood that are widely available, if you're considering some wooden tables and chairs as an addition to your garden. Teak is pest resistant and won't easily rot, making it ideal for places where damp conditions or rainfall are more likely. It's also one of the most durable types of wood, lasting for up to 50 years, but you can also expect to pay more for furniture made from teak. Redwood can also last a long time, up to 25 years, and is resistant to moisture. It also costs a little less than other types of wood, such as teak. If you don't have the time or inclination to finish your wood, cedar may be the best choice, and it also lends itself to being glued or nailed. Your local DIY shop may well have furniture designed for outdoor use in other types of wood, and it can sometimes be overwhelming to decide. Do some research, determine what your needs are, as well as the climate where you live, and of course your overall budget.
