Metal and aluminum furniture of eloquent design are also available for people trying to decorate their homes outdoors. It has been said that choosing your outdoor furniture is as important as choosing a dining room table. I have seen beautiful metal and / or aluminum furniture designs that are absolutely alluring. Some of the metal and aluminum furniture available today is designed with eloquent, luxurious style. Some people like to have glass table tops, while others prefer the entire design to be of metal or aluminum. You really can enhance your garden, pond, or patio ambiance with outdoor furniture and accessories - sometimes with only a few changes! There are several types of outdoor furniture to choose from, depending on your overall outdoor home décor, and of course, your personal style.
The first step in the proper care of your outdoor living furniture is a good cleaning regardless of its construction material. Dirt and leaves will always settle around and in your furniture so a good brushing with a soft bristle brush or broom will help get rid of the debris. A simple garden hose will wash away any residue. For stubborn dirt or stains use a sponge drenched with water and mild soap. This washing should probably be done at the beginning of each outdoor season. Make sure the all nuts, bolts, and screws are tightened; replace any that are broken, rusted, or missing. If your furniture has hinges or wheels, grease them with a silicone lubricant. If you lubricate with oil it will usually cake up and attracts dirt.
If you want to put moisture back into the wicker soak the furniture in water once yearly. This furniture will last longer if you keep it in the shade. You will need to wash and refinish wicker garden outdoor furniture every once in a while to keep in good condition. Wrought iron, steel, and aluminum framed outdoor furniture can also be washed with the mild soap and water treatment.
