Buying furniture for a beachfront property has a new set of challenges when it comes to durability. Salt spray and ocean air can wreak havoc on patio furniture, requiring you to replace your furniture often if you are not getting materials that can stand up to the elements.
Invest in outdoor furniture that you can rely on for seasons to come with these three must-haves below….
When it comes to oceanside property, metal is definitely not the way to go. The climate will quickly make metal furniture corrode with the heavy amount of moisture in the air. Wood will also break down if not treated for specific outdoor use. Poly lumber is a great choice for by the ocean because it does not absorb moisture, is resistant to salt spray, and can look like real wood. This material is also very easy to clean and hose off, making getting rid of sand, dirt, or debris a cinch!
Durability can’t just stop at the material! Making sure your furniture uses stainless steel hardware is important for the longevity of your furniture as a whole. This mixture of metals reacts with the oxygen in the air to create a layer that prevents corrosion. Continue your stainless steel hardware working hard by keeping it clean, preventing salt deposits from penetrating the metal.
Dragging your furniture on sealed patios can take a toll on its structural integrity, let alone if you’re dragging it across sand, gravel, or rocks that are normally native to beachy locations. Furniture with a folding frame is easier to move from one spot to another or to put it away for storage. With some types of furniture, folding isn’t an option, but when it is, choosing folding furniture will make your life easier and lessen the likelihood of it getting damaged when moving around.
Life at the beach should be relaxing, so don’t let your furniture stress you out! By making sure you choose furniture that has durable material, strong hardware, and a folding frame, you can make a smart investment for your furniture. The only thing left to do then is just sit back, relax, and enjoy!
