Patio furniture options have never been more diverse, and wrought iron's durability and beauty have made it one today's more popular choices.
Wooden patio furniture requires more maintenance and will typically break down over time. Plastic options are often not satisfactory complements to an outdoor space's design. This makes wrought iron a great choice for those looking to add some attractive, long-lasting appeal to their patio.
Wrought-iron patio furniture is generally more expensive than wood or plastic options, but there are several reasons why it's viewed as a good investment.
Firstly, it's very durable. It won't break or damage in almost any weather conditions, and it requires only minor maintenance, mainly in the form of a new coat of paint after a few seasons.
Wrought-iron patio furniture is also quite heavy. You're highly unlikely to find it at the bottom of the pool or in the neighbor's yard after a heavy wind, or even a tropical storm. Despite the fact that it's heavy and hard, wrought iron patio furniture can be quite comfortable through the use of pillows, cushions and throws.
Lastly, because its an extremely shapeable, malleable material, wrought iron can be worked into intricate and attractive designs that can provide a visually interesting complement to any patio.
