Patio or outdoor furniture has gained new momentum with shifting tastes, preferences and modern lifestyle. Gone are the days when all-weather plastic in the garden was used to entertain guests on a sunny afternoon. Patio furniture includes a broad range like deck furniture, garden furniture, chairs, tables, lounge furniture that can be easily switched over for evening parties by the pool or the garden.
An awning can be either fixed or retractable. A fixed awning, as its name suggests, stays in the same position all the time. It is usually some type of shade cloth fixed to a permanent frame of steel or aluminium. Retractable awnings can be swiftly stowed away, and are available in either powered or manually operated versions. In climates where permanent awnings must be dismantled at the approach of winter and erected again in spring, retractable awnings, which can be left in their cassette all year round, are especially useful.
Patios are generally designed to catch the sun. Not necessarily, in warmer areas, the heat of the midday sun, but enough sun to give you that good sense of relaxation and well being that we get when exposed to lots of vitamin D.
Now is an excellent time to start looking for some new patio furniture. If your table and chairs have seen better days, invest in some stylish new furniture. Look for patio furniture with UV resistant fabrics. Modern all-weather outdoor furniture will go the distance without fading in strong sunlight or succumbing to damp weather if you live in Southern Australia.
