Time To Think About Teak Patio Furniture

26th Jan 2023

Great outdoor furniture brings comfort and function to your porch, deck, or patio. It allows you to spend time with nature and provides a much-needed break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. When carefully selected, outdoor furniture can complement the furniture and décor inside your home and enhance the look and feel of your outdoor space. Unfortunately, outdoor furniture is often exposed to damaging weather elements like wind, sun, snow, and rain. If you're looking for a furniture option that stands up to the elements and has bright eye-catching style, then teak patio furniture is a perfect choice. Teak is a type of tropical hardwood native to Southern Asia that's known for its strength, beauty, and durability. It's a particularly good choice for outdoor furniture because it's insect, rot, crack, split, and splinter-resistant even when exposed to the elements year-round. The natural oils in the teak wood act as a sealant and preservative that protects the wood, against harsh UV rays, rain, and salty humidity. It's also a natural antifungal and antibacterial, so you don't have to worry about mildew or mold. Because teak is a hardwood, teak patio furniture can last for up to 75 years if properly cared for, which makes it a great and timeless investment for your outdoor space. In fact, it is regarded as the gold standard of outdoor furniture! Here's why you should consider teak patio furniture:

It's Weather Resistant 

Outdoor furniture does not have to be moved inside during the winter or when bad weather strikes. It should be resistant enough to withstand some of the harshest conditions. While not entirely waterproof, it should be able to survive wet weather without sustaining significant damage. It should also be water, wind, and UV-resistant. This is why teak is at the top of the list when it comes to outdoor furniture. Teak has a dense structure that makes it more difficult for moisture to penetrate the wood grain.

It also has high natural oil content that keeps it supple even under high temperatures. This prevents it from splitting, cracking, and discoloring, which occurs when the wood is exposed to the drying effects of sun and wind. But the quality of teak furniture goes beyond the material. The craftmanship, quality of teak, and construction techniques used are all important factors for ensuring maximum durability. The 5pc Teak Wood Bar Set from Tortuga Outdoor is a perfect example of what can be achieved when kiln-dried, Grade "A" certified teak material, design, and quality craftsmanship all come together. This set features high-grade brass hardware, a smooth sanded finish, and an elegant design for the ideal outdoor dining setting.

It's Beautiful 

Teak furniture is known for its classic good looks, which makes it the perfect choice for any outdoor space. With a beautiful golden-brown color, this outdoor furniture fits in with most natural settings, and its smooth finish makes lounging or dining a pleasure. Its natural lines and curves also create a beautiful visual interest, making you feel like you're sitting beside a tropical resort pool or lounging in a five-star hotel. The icing on the cake? It gets better with age. Teak gradually weathers to a rich and gorgeous silver-gray patina over time, giving it a more distinguished royale look that blends in with any landscape. This Jakarta Teak 5pc Outdoor Dining Set with Wicker Chairs is a beautiful example of teak furniture with its classic lines, comfortable chairs, and weather-resistant wicker. The Jakarta Teak Dining Table is as beautiful as you'd expect, with strong joinery, and attractive curves that are sure to make this set a glamorous centerpiece of your outdoor living space.

It's Low Maintenance 

Teak has a strong reputation for being one of the most sought-after wood types because it’s full of character, attractive, strong, and above all, low maintenance. Teak wood does not require any treatment or maintenance to preserve its natural color and finish. It is practically self-sustaining and beautiful, withstanding sun and rain without any kind of special treatment. All you need to do is wash it periodically with a very soft brush or pad and some warm mildly soapy water. Then, just wash it down with clean water to restore its sheen and luster. If the furniture has some stubborn and heavily soiled spots, you can use fine-grade sandpaper to clean them. For a low-maintenance outdoor space, teak patio furniture such as Teak Wood Bar Chairs (2 Pack) is a perfect choice. These lightweight chairs are easy to move around, versatile, and come with a tropical look, making them ideal for your busy and active lifestyle.

It Lasts a Lifetime

Another important factor about Teak is that its quality and longevity make it a great investment. Teak is known for its superior durability, with many pieces lasting more than 70 years. It's resistant to rot and decay, so it won't deteriorate in harsh weather conditions. When you invest in quality pieces, such as the Tortuga Outdoor Jakarta Teak Wood 3pc Rocking Chair Set, you can be sure that it will stand up to whatever Mother Nature throws at it. This set is made from the highest-grade teak with strong joinery, beautifully carved edges, and a smooth sanded finish that is sure to provide maximum comfort and add a calming tropical vibe and ambiance to your outdoor space.

It's Versatile 

When shopping for furniture, you want pieces that are easy to care for, long-lasting, and versatile. Teak furniture ticks all these boxes perfectly. Its timeless design makes it a perfect fit for both modern and traditional homes, making it easy to mix and match with your existing furniture.
