Which woods work well for outdoor wood furniture?
Outdoor wooden furniture fares well made with pine, cedar or cypress wood. They offer durability and the warm look of wood furniture.
Cedar Wood for Outdoor Furniture
Cedar wood features rich red hues, a relatively straight grain and medium texture for an outdoorsy and inviting look. Cedar scores with a hardness rating that can handle the job outside, creating supportive furniture that will last. An added bonus for cedar is its natural resistance to rot and decay and its ability to utilize natural oils in the wood to repel bugs and insects, preventing them from taking up residence.
Pine Wood for Outdoor Furniture
Pine wood offers another fine option for outdoor wooden furniture. Pine is pressure treated to be strong, dense and resistant to wear. Pine offers light, natural colors that can be stained, painted, or left unfinished. It’s an economical wood choice that you can trust.
Cypress Wood for Outdoor Furniture
Cypress wood offers another fine option for outdoor wooden furniture. It can handle wet weather, it’s soft yet durable, it’s easy to work with and like cedar, it contains a natural oil that contributes to its ability to resist rot and decay.
How does outdoor wood furniture compare to poly?
While poly furniture comes with its own list of beneficial features, it doesn’t offer the same look as wooden outdoor furniture. Outdoor wood furniture acquires a weathered look over time, adding to its character and offering a natural look and style.
In comparison to poly outdoor furniture, outdoor wood furniture is a more economical option that offers a great look and long-lasting durability.
Remember when choosing outdoor furniture to think about where you will place it, whether it will sit on a hard or soft surface and if there will be any overhead protection from outdoor elements. Less protection might warrant an added layer of sealant protection for your outdoor wood furniture.
