It’s always a good thing when a piece of furniture can have multiple uses, especially when you have limited space. This is the case with storage benches. You can store all sorts of gardening implements in them, without the need for a separate storage box. Look for models that are topped with a cushion, as they are more comfortable to sit on for long periods.

Outdoor wicker furniture adds a contemporary style to your backyard deck or patio. To keep your wicker furniture looking like new, take a little time to schedule a regular clean-up time. Wicker furniture can be cleaned by using the soft brush of a vacuum along with a damp cloth slightly dipped into detergent and water. Make sure though that your wicker is reed or resin wicker and not paper wicker which can be damaged if wet. Of course, if it’s solely used for outdoor furniture, then it needs to be reed wicker.

If the chairs are very light, there is a possibility that they could blow over on a windy day.
When you’re setting up your back deck or patio to ensure that there is enough of a seating and serving arrangement for guests who drop by, consider adding an outdoor wicker ottoman coffee table to the mix. Not only will the ottoman serve as a coffee table, but it can also be used as an extra seat or foot rest if needed. Make sure to protect your wicker furniture first by spraying it with Scotch guard water proofing to protect it from the elements.

Spending time socializing or just plain relaxing on the patio or deck is a great way to enjoy the spring and summer months. Stylish and comfortable, a black wicker outdoor furniture set featuring two chairs, a love seat and coffee table can be all you need to enjoy your down time. If you do plan to keep your wicker furniture outdoors all year long, make sure to buy all weather resin wicker furniture to keep your set looking good year after year.

Of course, black isn’t necessarily the first color we think of when shopping for lawn furniture. White is probably far more popular, and brown as well. Perhaps this is because black absorbs all the colors of the rainbow, and so tends to get hot. On the other hand, with a few strategically placed pillows, this problem is easily resolved.
White wicker storage baskets can be used in a variety of ways to hold everything from craft supplies to magazines to sweaters and clothes items. However, there are issues sometimes with wicker baskets that smell. An easy way to fix this, is to place the wicker basket in a plastic bag, throw in a generous amount of baking soda, and then shake the bag well. Do this for a few days then take the basket out of the bag and hose it down. The smell should then be gone.
