Teak:

Teak loungerTeak looks absolutely stunning when it is oiled regularly.  If it isn’t looked after properly it can turn silvery grey.  The pros of this kind of furniture is that it looks absolutely beautiful. The cons are that it will need regular maintenance. You can wash it lightly with warm soapy water and you would need to oil it at least twice a year.  Our advice, if you don’t have the time to look after it, don’t buy it.

Hardwood:

Hardwood lounger

Similar to teak and it will change colour if not looked after.  It can be washed down with soapy water and will be given two coats of oil at least twice a year. Our advice, if you don’t have time to look after it, don’t buy it.

Theres no denying it, plastic comes up clean after a good wipe over.  Granted some pieces can look quite “cheap” but it comes in a variety of colours these days and again, it is easy to clean.  If you are busy person, this could be right up your street.

Rattan:

Rattan day bed

Rattan is UV and weather resistant so it pretty much looks after itself.  The frame is usually made of aluminium so you would need to keep the exposed metal parts maintained by applying exterior metal paint at least once a year. If you find any rust, using steel wool, remove the rust then apply an exterior paint.  You can then apply wax to give it more protection from the elements.

Metal

Metal furniture can be washed with soapy water or a pressure washer on a low setting.  Be careful though if it has a glass or fragile table top.  To prevent it rusting, you can use steel wool to remove any rust then apply an exterior paint.  You can then apply wax to give it more protection from the elements.
