Terrace tables


The terraces are an integral part of the apartment and require, like the rest of the house, adequate furniture and a bit of care. Tables and chairs coordinated in different colors and models allow you to furnish the terrace with elegance and simplicity, to spend days in the open area alone or in company. Even when small in size, the terrace furnished with table and chairs can be transformed into a welcoming relaxation area and this is why it becomes very important to choose the right type of furniture in relation to the space to be occupied. It is advisable to select folding or stackable chairs and tables, so that they can be stored away when not in use, making it possible to access the terrace for other purposes. During the choice of furniture, it will be necessary to take into consideration not only the available spaces but also the characteristics of the materials, as they are terrace tables, they will have to withstand the elements. There are many options available on the market, the terrace tables in synthetic material require little maintenance guaranteeing a quick and modern result, the synthetic resin and synthetic rattan also allow the creation of motifs and decorations on the surface of the table, which are more demanding instead, for this reason concerning their maintenance are the iron terrace tables, which, although more robust, can be exposed to rust and must therefore be treated beforehand. You can therefore choose from an infinite number of materials that require more or less attention, but particularly appreciated are the wooden tables, although they need more maintenance.

Teak or Teak is a tropical tree, native to south-eastern Asia. Teak wood is used not only for making outdoor tables but also for building ship decks and various artifacts destined for places that require excellent water resistance. Even the parquet floors are made of teak. Teak is easy to work with and is considered by many operators to be the best wood species in the world, as it is resistant, dimensionally stable, waterproof and beautiful. Teak terrace tables often have simple lines and small dimensions, many models are in fact extendable twice their length. The strength of this product, however, is proportional to the care it needs, its honey color, with time it darkens due to bad weather and direct exposure to the sun. To avoid this, it is necessary to treat the table with specific oil, making it penetrate deeply into the wood fibers.terrace tables: Teak table maintenance


Wooden furniture requires continuous routine maintenance, and it is often recommended to apply protective wood-specific wax. The operation is simple because through the warmth of touch, using a soft cloth, the wax melts and makes it possible to polish the wood, filling small holes and protecting the surface of the table in a uniform manner like a film. Terrace tables, even if designed for outdoor environments, require protection from external agents, so that they can last longer, it is necessary to preserve them from adverse weather conditions, covering them with plastic sheets, or whenever possible, placing them away under a roof or in a corner of the terrace not exposed to the elements.
If there is no possibility of keeping them away from rain and direct sunlight, the use of protective oils becomes essential. This also applies to terrace tables made of Teak, which even with great resistance tend to lose their luster and change the amber color to gray over time. Oil treatment should be performed at least twice a year. Through this practice, the wood remains beautiful, preserving the original features, especially the visual ones. Its shine can be renewed with a deep cleaning of all parts of the table, to be carried out using a non-aggressive detergent, preferably neutral and a soft brush. This operation eliminates surface stains, without removing the wood oil absorbed by it during the treatments carried out over the years. If you do not have a soft brush this can be replaced by a damp cloth, once all the dirt has been removed, it must be rinsed carefully, without exceeding the use of water to avoid damaging the table surface. Once rinsed, it must be left to dry in a well-ventilated place, preferably not directly exposed to the sun. Once this is done, it is possible to proceed with the drafting of the oil, which will make the wood shiny. An outdoor primer will complete the table renewal process. For particularly damaged terrace tables it is necessary to use special products in order to remove difficult dirt, for those who are more experienced, this operation can be carried out with thin sandpaper or a sander, after this first preparation step, you can proceed with the drafting of oil and finishing with impregnating agent. The treated table must be dried at least two days in a ventilated area, making sure that no insects or dust are deposited there.
