Why Buy?

First of all, think about your items as an investment in your home and your own personal comfort. Patio furniture will add to your overall available space, and secondly, holds the promise of relaxation, entertaining, and overall more enjoyment of your room. Buying patio or outdoor furniture involves much the same steps as buying typical indoor furniture, but there are some additional considerations as well.

Consider Natural Elements

Create a mental check of your patio, deck, or enclosed porch. What is your climate typically like? Do you have a significant amount of wind and rain that you'll need to make sure holds up through the test of time? You may want to consider resin or synthetic wicker and rattan over cast iron, metal, or steel (especially if you live near a salty area like we do in Wilmington). Powder coating is always an option, too, to help fight rust. Additionally, you may want to reevaluate your current patio furniture fabric--is it holding up to your environmental elements? Here Porch Concepts, we offer several weather resistant fabrics to fight any natural element, regardless of climate. We are even an authorized Sunbrella and Elaine Smith dealer, so you can depend on durable and easy-to-clean fabric, cushions, and pillows to maintain the quality and durability of your whole space.
