Whether you have a small or large space on the balcony or backyard, IKEA has a vast variety of patio furniture to choose from. If you have limited space, IKEA offers individual pieces of chairs that fold and stack, small tables and outdoor storage options. With large spaces, we have a variety of outdoor dining sets and sofa sets with ottomans available! Maybe even try an activity space for the whole family to dine, relax, play or cook.




Wooden Outdoor Furniture

When the weather turns nice and you want to get out on that back deck or porch you may give a quick look at your wood furniture and realize it needs a little care. That means it time to learn how to refinish outdoor furniture so you get a full season of enjoyment out of it.


Wood outdoor furniture is by far the most desirable, that is if you can manage the maintenance it needs. We all know plastic patio furniture is pretty low maintenance, but it is weak compared to solid wood and gets more and more brittle every year until it eventually dies a crumbly death.


In every climate, but especially southern areas, UV rays relentlessly break down the lignin in the wood which is what bonds the wood fibers together and strengthens it. This process is call photo-oxidation and without any protection on your outdoor wood furniture it is happening every time the sun is up.


This silvery appearance may not be a problem if you have hardwood furniture like Teak or Ipe since the density of hardwood keeps the insides healthy with natural oils and the grey skin gives a weathered, matured finish.


Pick a shady working area like the garage or workshop to do your refinishing and lay down a drop cloth or some plastic. For the best results you want to refinish outdoor furniture in a place protected from rain, excessive dust or leaves and away from direct sunlight which can affect the drying of the finish.


After scuffing wipe the surface down again with a clean tack cloth to remove any sanding dust and apply another coat of finish. Let everything dry at least 24 hrs before putting your furniture back into service and be gentle with it for at least three days while the finish fully cures.


What. Out some existing cracks? I have bought some lovely furniture for outdoor use and the chairs have some cracks. How do I repair these? Also heat protection? We live in a place where it gets to 126 on average during the summer. Thanks!


Here at Summer Classics, we have wooden furniture styles as diverse as our customers. From transitional dining tables to classic chaise lounges, we have designed a wooden patio set for every family and home.


Unrivaled in its strength and longevity, this Indonesian timber is also incredibly beautiful, developing an attractive grey patina over time. Most forgiving in damp climates, teak is ideal for coastal homes or environments with high humidity or precipitation. Our world-class product designers now exclusively use teak in all Summer Classics wood collections. Learn more about teak outdoor furniture.

Despite its durability, yes, eucalyptus wood will eventually fade. If the wood is left untreated, it will transform into a silvery, soft gray tone many owners like. But you can restore the rich color of your eucalyptus wood furniture by gently sanding it down and applying an oil designed for eucalyptus.


Linseed oil is made from flax seeds while tung oil is made from seeds of tung trees native to Southern China. These oils are typically combined with mineral spirits and polyurethane to make a durable finish for outdoor wood.


The number of coats you need to apply will depend on the type of finish you choose and the level of protection you desire. In general, three to five coats of finish are recommended for most outdoor projects.


Regular maintenance is important to keep your outdoor wood furniture looking its best. This includes cleaning the furniture regularly, reapplying finish as needed, and storing the furniture in a covered area during the off-season.


The most common question I received when sharing this project on Instagram was what kind of paint to use on outdoor furniture. For outdoor metal furniture, I always recommend oil-based paint, but for outdoor wood furniture, I think that high-quality exterior latex paint is acceptable, as well.


We know that you have an incredible array of options when it comes to choosing furniture for your home. It can be overwhelming to find pieces that are the right style and fit for your space, not to mention the quality that will provide comfort and durability for years to come. You don't want the cookie cutter furniture so common on the market; where do you go for the quality and style you want and deserve? At Southern Outdoor Furniture, our goal is to help you sort through the clutter to find furniture you can be happy with for life.


Keeping your patio furniture in good condition is a priority for most people. After all, no matter what kind you bought or how much you spent, you want to keep the furniture looking good for as long as possible. Replacing the furniture, or doing serious restoration jobs, are both a hassle.


You can, and must, leave wooden furniture outside. Wood furniture should be pre-treated by the manufacturer to protect it from the elements. Still, if you want the wood to perform better and last longer, it is wise to add your own sealant, on a yearly or bi-annual basis.


There are other ways to protect your wood furniture from sun, rain, and other elements. You can cover them with patio furniture covers, or with any number of fabrics. You should also consider placement. If you move the furniture beneath a pergola or gazebo, it will be better sheltered from the elements.


Yearly you should restore the protective coat on the wood furniture. This involves cleaning the furniture, sanding down the old sealer or varnish, and re-applying. Be sure you get into the nooks and crannies of the furniture, or those spots will lack protection.


Under the heat of the sun, wood furniture may dry out and crack. It may also lighten, over time. You can protect wood furniture from sun-damage the same way you protect it from rain. Renew its coating, try to keep it covered, and buy higher-quality wood that is less likely to fade over time.


Metal furniture does not need much protection from the elements. It is naturally resistant to rain and ultraviolet rays. However, it can rust over time, especially if it is exposed to salt spray, as that wears off protective coatings faster.


As with wood furniture, you can add a cover or other fabrics to the metal furniture to protect it from rusting. The better it can be sheltered from rain, the slower the rusting process will be. So, tucking your metal patio furniture beneath a gazebo or other shelter is a wise idea.


Most metal furniture will have a powder coating from the manufacturer that slows down rusting. Still, it is a good idea to apply your own coating to the furniture once a year, or once every other year. For metal, wax is a good option, as it will cause water to roll right off. You can use an automotive wax, or buy wax made specifically for outdoor furniture.


Protecting plastic furniture is more about protecting it from long-term staining than protecting it from the elements, as it does well in rain and snow. However, if you leave moss, algae, or dirt on the plastic it may stain permanently.


Purchase aerosol spray paint in your desired shade. Then, prepare an area to lay your furniture on. Spray the wood with a bonding primer first. We recommend starting by flipping the furniture on its top so that you can spray the bottom first. Make long, consistent passes while pressing down on the nozzle. Do not start or stop in the middle of the furniture because this can lead to drips or uneven marks. Apply at least two coats for an even, rich finish.


We recommend spray painting your furniture outside on a day with minimal wind for the best results. Take proper safety precautions, like wearing a mask and goggles while using spray paint or other chemicals on your furniture.


Clean outdoor wood furniture lightly with a damp cloth and mild soapy solution or warm water. If the piece requires deeper cleaning, scrub with a soft scrub brush or toothbrush and mix of water and dishwasher detergent. Always scrub in the same direction as the wood grain. If you have any challenging stains, you can lightly sand and rinse the surface until they disappear. Wipe away all excess water.


When cleaning your outdoor furniture, consider the type of wood. Hardwoods, like oak or teak, are scratch-resistant, so you can clean these more aggressively. However, softer wood, like pine or cedar, should be cleaned cautiously.


Go to your local home improvement store and match the color of your furniture to a sealant. Then, use this sealant on individual pieces of furniture. Always apply in the direction of the grain to keep yourself from overlapping. 041b061a72
