Outdoor furniture must be dependent on the climate at all times. For every beach house, the outdoor furniture has to meet certain criteria for it to withstand moisture damage and fading due to the sun. Rather than just a nautical theme, there are major basics that must not be left out on your list. The materials used for tables, chairs and accessories must be thoroughly considered. As a result of the weather experienced around beaches, resin wicker and teak wood are the best even if there are tons of choices for the same purpose. Note that rust resistant beach furniture withstands harsh conditions such as exposure to sunlight and sogginess. Wood furniture is very common and traditional for outdoors, but it is highly tricky to make a choice because most wood is quick to splitting, warping, cracking, and rotting if proper maintenance is not observed. If wood is a preference, then always consider natural teak.
Teak wood has a natural rustic appearance and is highly durable. It holds up extremely well to very many outdoor elements such as the wind, sun damage, rain, and sand. Water repellent materials are very important for beaches, and this is exactly what teak wood offers. It is excellent at repelling water because it is imbued with rubber-like substances and natural oils. It is also resilient to insect damage and decay. Whenever opting for teak, however, one treated with a certain sealant is better than the unfinished. That ensures that the wood gets the ability to withstand natural elements and protect your furniture from fading. What’s more, this wood is very easy to maintain. All that is needed is periodic cleaning with ordinary detergent. Also, this wood just like other woods gives comfort, warmth, and a casual setting. Other hardwoods that are used include pine, redwood, cedar, and eucalyptus. Among them all, teak has the longest lasting period that can go for up to 50 years with redwood closely following with a service period of 25 years. Another basic advantage of these woods is that they do not hold heat from the sun like metal and plastic do.
Other Common Furniture Used for Beach Houses include…
After teak, hand-woven resin wicker is the second best furniture for beach house outdoors. It gives the same appeal just like the natural wicker, the only difference being that the material used is synthetic. The synthetic material is what endears it to the beach because it has the power to uphold well in that environment. Wicker is highly durable, although lightweight. It can be made from bamboo, cane, rattan and other materials. For the material to be highly weather resistant and increase the lifespan, it has to be made from synthetics. In many cases, chairs and tables made of resin wicker are constructed using all-aluminum legs and frame. The material is what protects the furniture from sand, moisture and dust. It also boosts rust resistance and peeling.
This is great for cushions. Not only does this material resist moisture, but is also durable for daily use. The cushions made from this material resist fading from exposure to sunlight.
Metal: Wrought Iron and Aluminum
Wrought iron is a durable and strong metal, and its furniture designs range from contemporary to traditional. What makes it the best material for windy environments is its capacity to avoid tipping over and the fact that it is heavy. With wrought iron on the tables and chairs, wind damage is never a cause of worry. This metal should at all times be coated not only to create a different look on it but also to boost its resistance to corrosion. Aluminum, on the other hand, does not fade or rust, especially when coated with a powder coat finish. Although it is easier to maintain, the problem with this metal is that it is light.
For the Interior Décor…
Beach-inspired shades such as light cream, charcoal, beige, light yellow or off-whites are excellent. Light teal, refreshing aqua light blues, and turquoise are perfect shades for accentuating other shades. A practical coastal setting is not all about loading a beach home with every beach motif one can get their hands on. It is about giving coastal themed ideas that showcase a striking balance between embracing sleek contemporary design and staying true to improving the outdoor ambiance of a beach house.
Indoor furniture, on the other hand, has to be chosen with a lot of information. Décor crafted from organic materials, and natural fiber is excellent. Here, the idea is to create a tranquil and serene beach house setting. Rattan and wicker furniture are perfect, and beds made of natural oak also do not disappoint. For those that love more adventure, bamboo blinds and canvas chairs are ideal.
