your own Reading GardenWhen it comes to natural wood Adirondack furniture there is one thing that you must bear in mind; not all woods are equal. For example, Adirondack furniture made of teak doesn’t require being painted. This is primarily because teak wood contains natural oils in it and these natural oils protect the wood so it stands up very well to the weather and doesn’t even need to be brought inside in the winter. Teak Adirondack furniture is durable enough to withstand conditions even during the winter season. Therefore it won’t matter whether you are using your Adirondack furniture during winter or any other season. That is why such furniture is called all weather furniture. Cedar Adirondack furniture also stands up well to the elements and is considered ‘all weather’ furniture.

You may come across some cheaper versions of these items in your search for the perfect Adirondack furniture. You need to beware though as they may not be ‘all weather’. These chairs may be sufficient for your needs, but make sure to move them from the porch during the winter and during bad weather to keep them from being damaged.

Painted Adirondack chairs are yet another category of Adirondack furniture. Today you have a huge variety of beautiful colors in painted Adirondack chairs to choose from. You have such a wide choice of colors to choose from that many times you are able to have some pieces of furniture in one color tone and other pieces in different hues of that same color. However, you can also add any color of your own choice to reflect your own style. You definitely have the ability to choose the Adirondack furniture that matches your style or taste.

Cedar Adirondack furniture, on the other hand, may be painted if primed correctly though it doesn’t need to be. Teak Adirondack chairs, unlike the woods mentioned prior, are generally not recommended to paint. This is primarily due to the fact that the natural oils in the wood do not allow for proper adhering of the paint to the chair.

Another option would be to choose plastic Adirondack chairs made of recycled milk jugs and resin. These, like every Adirondack all weather furniture piece, are desirable because generally there are virtually no maintenance problems with it.

As you can see, you have a number of choices when deciding which Adirondack furniture will best suit your needs. Adirondack chairs help you in the best way to make your garden or patio look elegant and spectacular.
