Sometimes, it can be a daunting task to choose the right variety of furniture for your outdoor areas. The right outdoor furniture Miami has to be a rare mix of functionality, comfort, and durability.

Of late, wooden furniture has claimed the status of the most preferable open-air furniture. Not only do they offer a quaint look to the sitting area of your patio, or garden, they are also more durable. Given below are some of the best varieties of wood that are resilient to outdoor elements.

1. Pine Creations

This is a variety of softwood that is abundant throughout the hilly areas of the world, including North America. Due to the great supply of this kind of wood, they come at a lower price than their other counterparts. They may be untreated and pressure treated, in accordance to your unique budget. The latter variety, of course, has been known to be more durable.

As for manageability, both kinds of pine furniture can be easily cleaned, and coated with industrial sealers, to ensure that they look new for many years. You should take care, however, to ensure that your outdoor pine furniture should be preserved away from the natural elements, during the winter. This will guarantee their greater longevity.

2. Jarrah Wood Furniture

Wood specialists swear by the fact this kind of hardwood is naturally defiant of fire, termite, and other common maladies of wood. As a result, they need minimum maintenance efforts. Just place them in your outdoor areas, and say goodbye to all your anxieties of losing your patio furniture to the elements of nature.

Although they are more expensive, their sturdiness, along with their unique grain of salmon pink hue, are definitely worth the price. They can be cleaned easily with common bathroom soap, and spruced up with a special finishing material, every once in a while, to maintain their natural polish. They have been known to last as many as five decades, with some elementary care.

3. Teak

Teak is a kind of hardwood that is primarily found in the southern hemisphere of the world. This means that they are heavily imported from Africa, South America, and certain parts of South Asia.

It possesses a honey-brownish hue that turns an antiqued color of light silver gray, if left untreated. It is highly resilient to decay. Thus, you can expose it to the elements to a greater degree, without the fear of losing them. In fact, most teak furniture last as much as 50 years, with very little maintenance efforts put in. A special teak-appropriate soap can be used to wash it, once in a few months.

When it comes to outdoor furniture, you want it look appealing to you and your guests. Yet, at the same time, you can not afford to compromise on the hardiness quotient of your furniture, just for the sake of some dainty piece of furniture that only looks pretty, and nothing else. For this precise reason, wooden outdoor furniture is the way to go.

Wood furniture allows you the option to customize it with paint to match your existing wood or metal furniture. Wood also allows you to distress furniture in such a way that it doesn't look brand new.

If you choose not to paint your wood furniture, consider cleaning your furniture at regular intervals to keep your furniture in good condition. Cleaning is a must for any patio furniture, but even more so for wood furniture is using a protector for the wood.

- Consider getting an oil based water repellent polyurethane. This is especially necessarily for areas of the country where it rains quite often.

- For sunny regions, polyurethane that has a UV protection capability, or paint that has built in barriers to prevent color fading.

-During the colder months, it's a good idea to store your wood patio furniture inside. Many people do not have the luxury of extra space so consider investing in patio furniture covers for the winter months. If you don't have the space, consider the folding chairs above, which are easier to store.
