Beyond its singular beauty, waterfront living comes with its own set of challenges. Namely, harsh weather patterns marked by corrosive wind, drying saltwater, & quick-moving coastal storms. So, how do we resist these elements & enjoy the view? The answer is simple. Expertly engineered beach-friendly furniture.
So, what’s the best beach house furniture made out of? We’re going to cover it all!
Choose Tough Materials for Coastal Climates
You only need three elements to make up the perfect beach––sand, surf, and sunshine––but infinite possibilities emerge when it comes to designing your coastal abode. Where to begin when the inspiration is boundless? First and foremost, materials matter when it comes to selecting outdoor furniture, especially in a seaside setting.
Choose furniture that will withstand the sands of time like Teak furniture and Wicker furniture. Both of these materials are dense and strong enough to withstand the salt air. Our plantation grown teak and N-dura Resin Wicker are the two most popular materials that our experts recommend for homeowners with property near the coast.
Materials to Avoid for Beach House Furniture
Because patio furniture tends to take the most severe beating from the ocean air, it is important to know what not to buy before looking for the best beach house furniture.
Typically powder-coated iron furniture is what you are going to want to avoid as it will easily chip or erode from the harsh salt air. If it is too late and you already have metal furniture at your beach-front home, treat it immediately or rust will take hold.
[TIP] – Apply rubbing alcohol to the area, sand it lightly and then use some touch-up paint from the manufacturer to cover the spot.
