When it comes to picking the right patio furniture for your home, it can be hard to decide. What material should you choose? How many pieces do you need? How big should each piece be? Where should you buy them?
Unfortunately, there’s no one right answer. (Except for where you should buy them, of course. But we might be a bit biased.)
In all seriousness, everyone’s needs are unique.
One of the decisions to make first is the material. To help you decide, we’re going to share our rundown of cast aluminum.
So, let’s talk about why should you choose cast aluminum furniture for your patio?
Cast Aluminum Furniture is Lightweight and Durable
Cast aluminum is one of the most widely used patio furniture materials. Praised for being both durable and lightweight, it offers an outdoor seat solution that you can easily rearrange.
Depending on your mobility, incredibly large and heavy pieces can be difficult to move. Whether you want to clear the decks for a party, store your furniture for the winter or just mix things up, having to hire a moving company just to shuffle things around is a pain. With lightweight outdoor furniture like cast aluminum, you can move it at your leisure.
The lifespan of cast aluminum is also impressive. Unlike iron or steel furniture that can rust, cast aluminum does not. Wood can require periodic stripping and refinishing. But cast aluminum receives a powder-coated finish that can easily be washed with warm soapy water and a soft bristle brush.
Another consideration is comfort. No fibbing here. Sitting directly on cast aluminum for a long dinner might not make for a leisurely meal. That’s why at Summer House we carry a wide variety of seat cushions. All the furniture we carry is carefully selected for maximum comfort – including our cast aluminum furniture that’s ergonomically designed to provide full support. Adding in a seat cushion is that little extra we highly recommend.
Like pillows, seat cushions have the added benefit of being easily swapped if you want to change the look and feel of your outdoor space. Learn more about how to do just that.
