Today, I will share with you how to choose the best outdoor furniture, let’s take a look~
Try to choose durable Outdoor materials
When choosing the type of furniture and materials, in addition to considering aesthetics, you should also make sure that they can be adapted to the local climatic conditions. For example, at the Ritz-Carlton Residences in Miami Beach, Greenfield and the team opted for classic French limestone and heavy ant wood.
“This project is based on a natural and elegant aesthetic, with a large selection of high-quality materials that are durable, so we selected textured natural materials for the outdoor space, resulting in a sleek and classic design,” she said.
Home maintenance needs to be practical, notes Joni Vanderslice, a designer at the J. Banks Design Group, an interior design firm in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina.
“Teak and other woods require constant maintenance, and if that’s not possible, choose other materials such as metal and wicker,” she explained.
In addition, outdoor spaces try to use functional fabrics that can withstand sunlight, wind and rain. Vanderslice said: “Manufacturers are using innovative technologies to continuously improve and expand their fabric offerings, and today’s functional fabrics have dramatically improved the look and feel.
“Thanks to the use of soft and durable fabrics, the living space can extend from indoors to outdoors.
When it comes to furniture selection, Torres prefers movable furniture because of their flexibility and adaptability. But he also likes to add some fixtures to set the tone and express the purpose of the space.
For deck surfacing, Parker favored granite and concrete, materials that work well with the weather. They don’t get too hot in the summer like less hard bluestone, limestone or ceramics, and they won’t be slippery in the rain.
“Take teak as an example, a fine-grained, resilient wood that can take on a beautiful, muted silver tone when exposed to the sun, making it ideal for patio decking,” says Parker.
