Patio tables and chairs made of resin look great, but over time in the sun, they become brittle and lose bold and vibrant coloring. It also applies to outdoor patio furniture made of wood and wicker.

While you shop, ensure that the metal furniture is painted or has a powder-coated finish that is uniform to prevent it from rusting. In the same way, wood furniture should be sanded and have a smooth surface. Garden benches made of wicker shouldn’t be loosely wound on the frame. Likewise, chairs and outdoor ottomans should be comfortable and sturdy.

Go for Indoor- Outdoor Furniture
