7 best teak outdoor lounge ideas
Teak is one of the most durable types of outdoor furniture and can be left to patina, making it virtually maintenance free.
Teak outdoor furniture is the most durable timber for outdoor living and a sustainable option if made with FSC certified teak or teak that has been reclaimed and recycled.
Teak has a very high natural oil content, is resistant to rotting, fungi, warping and water absorption, and remains durable in extreme climates.
Teak can be left to patina to a silver grey or the golden hues can be maintained with a teak cleaner followed by teak oil every few months. If left to grey, the performance and quality of the timber will not deteriorate but will benefit from occasional cleaning with teak cleaner to remove dirt and mildew.
