Enjoy the Teak Outdoors

It’s currently the middle of winter where I live (New Zealand), but for those of you in the northern hemisphere, it’s the middle of summer which means more time spent outdoors.

For homes with secluded backyards, outdoor patios are a great way of making the most of the sun, while still being able to work, relax, or entertain. Especially popular for complementing any outdoor setting are Teak Patio Furniture like tables, benches, and chairs.

Teak (a tropical hardwood) is often used in outdoor furniture because it is very weather resistant and long lasting. The wood contains natural oils, making it an ideal choice for exposed locations (even when the wood is untreated).

The Teakalook website offers a range of outdoor furniture, with sets finished in a light natural golden look, or a deeper brown varnished finish. There’s also a range of other outdoor needs on offer like Patio Umbrellas, heating, and decor (bird baths, garden arbors, candle holders, etc).

And if it all gets a bit hot and bright, Patio awnings and Shade Sails provide protection from the sun’s harmful rays, while still letting you enjoy outdoor living. The Teakalook site has a huge range of furniture and accessories, so there’s something for most tastes, and as a bonus there are no extra shipping charges for those living in the United States.
