What to Look for in Quality Outdoor Furniture

The finishing touch on almost any luxury outdoor living space is the furniture. You can have the most striking deck or the most elegant pergola, but if you don’t have a place to sit, your space isn’t finished yet. Just like with your pergola or pavilion, when it comes to furniture, you expect the best. We have your list of what you need to look for in quality outdoor furniture.

At The Backyard Showcase, we’re a one-stop-shop for everything you need to transform your outdoor living space. Not only do we build centerpiece luxury outdoor structures, but we also carry a wide variety of quality outdoor furniture. In our latest blog, we’re highlighting the 7 essential traits that all the best patio furniture possesses.

7 Traits of the Best Patio Furniture

The best patio furniture complements your outdoor décor while standing up to the elements 24/7 for years on end. The Amish-crafted poly furniture we offer both looks amazing and doesn’t demand any routine maintenance work on your part.

Here are the 7 key traits of quality outdoor furniture:

  1. Maintenance Free — You want to enjoy your outdoor space, not work tirelessly to maintain it. That’s why all of the best patio furniture is made from polyurethane or vinyl — not wood. That way you don’t need to repaint or re-stain your furniture every year to keep it looking presentable.
  2. Color Options — Outdoor furniture is more than just a place to sit — it contributes to your outdoor color scheme, too. That’s why we carry outdoor furniture in a whole rainbow of different color options, ranging from bright pastels to realistic wood grain. You really can match the color scheme of your furniture to your pergola, your siding color, or anything else!
  3. Resists Mold & Rot — While rot and mold can quickly spell the end for cheap wooden furniture, high quality poly furniture is completely immune to it. This is essential because you want your furniture to spend years on end in the elements — without having to replace it.
  4. Heavy & Durable — If you’re reading this blog, you are NOT looking for super cheap plastic lawn furniture. You know the type — the kind of lightweight plastic chairs that blow over in a breeze and can barely support your weight. All of the best outdoor chairs, tables, and other furniture are heavy duty enough that they won’t blow over and will be sturdy enough to do their jobs for years to come.
  5. Easy to Clean — While your high-quality outdoor poly furniture won’t grow mold, it can still get dirty. Making sure the furniture is easy to clean is important to having it look as good as the day you bought it. Any dirt or grime that gets on the surface of our poly furniture can be easily wiped off with a wet cloth or washed down with a standard garden hose.
  6. Fade Resistance — You know poly furniture comes in a lot of different beautiful colors, so the next question you need to ask is if the colors will stay beautiful. The Amish-crafted furniture we offer is designed specifically to be fade-resistant, meaning the color you choose is the color you’ll have for as long as you own the furniture.
  7. Good Price — Your luxury outdoor space is an investment, no doubt about it. However, homeowners would generally prefer to put their money into the centerpiece structure like the pavilion, pergola, or gazebo — rather than the furniture. So, the final thing you should expect from the outdoor furniture you buy is a good price. Fortunately, our high-quality backyard furniture comes in at a very fair price point considering all of the advantages!
