Get outside this summer
Enjoy the warm wooden tones of luxury teak garden furniture this summer.
The summer solstice has been and gone and the reminder that our days will slowly become shorter draws us outside and into our gardens to savour the long and lazy days of summer. Many an evening is spent sitting in the garden, hosting and enjoying barbeques and generally making the most of the great Cornish summer.
“The timeless appeal and outstanding durability of teak furniture is built to last with very little maintenance, so you can enjoy your furniture for many years to come.”
The more time we spend in our gardens however, the more we may notice the little improvements that we’ve been meaning to make. If you’ve been thinking about updating your garden furniture this year, it couldn’t be a better time to invest in some new outdoor pieces so that you can enjoy the height of summer in comfort. We absolutely love the feel of solid wood furniture, especially in our gardens surrounded by greenery and trees. The natural tone and grain of wood is totally befitting of an outdoor space.
Patio Furniture Ltd has a huge range of teak garden furniture, which they carry in stock ready for delivery. Following our visit earlier in the year, we catch up with Emily who explains the benefits of going for teak furniture. She tells us: “We’ve always got plenty of special offers, new products, ideas and discounts to tempt you. Each month we have a new selection of two to six seater teak garden furniture sets, including cushions and parasols, available in a selection of colours and with astonishing discounts to help you completely refresh your garden.” The timeless appeal and outstanding durability of teak furniture is built to last with very little maintenance, so you can enjoy your furniture for many years to come.
Plus, with regular showroom exclusive deals and savings, it’s definitely worth dropping in to the showroom at Rustic House in Par, where the friendly and knowledgeable staff are always on hand to help you find what you’re looking for. From dining sets to benches and loungers there’s something to suit all tastes and requirements, so take a look at the collection and enjoy the rest of your summer outside in complete comfort.
DID YOU KNOW?
When summer comes to an end these simple jobs will help maintain your teak furniture:
1. Clean down your furniture taking care not to damage the surface of the wood
2. Fill any small cracks or openings with exterior wood glue to prevent the wood splitting
3. Lightly sand surfaces as desired with fine sandpaper
4. Check fixings on folding chairs and tables
5. Apply a coat of wood treatment
6. Place it in a sheltered position
7. If you’re using a waterproof cover, place some wood blocks underneath so that the cover doesn’t rest on the furniture, this will allow air to circulate and prevent condensation
8. Apply an algae and mould treatment to keep your furniture looking great over the winter months, ready for next spring
