There are so many wonderful ways to add natural wood to your outdoor dining and today’s post will give you some interesting inspiration. We all know the adverse effects of plastics and other elements that are out of control with regard to toxicity and over-consumption. So, it’s up to each of us to do our part in reversing this unhealthy trend. To that end, below, you will find several styles and designs for adding natural wood furniture to your outdoor dining experience.
3 Inspirations for Natural Wood Furniture for Your Outdoor Dining Experience
1. Exotic, sustainable, beautiful bamboo.
Bamboo is a traditional material in use for furniture. Not only is it durable, it is sustainable as bamboo grows in abundance! In fact, it’s hard to keep it from growing! So, if you want something with ageless beauty with an exotic flare, bring bamboo furniture into your outdoor dining experience.
However, keep in mind that damp weather is the number one enemy of bamboo. So, be sure to use an outdoor sealer and protect it with a nice water proof cover. You might also consider bringing it in during the Fall and Winter seasons.
2. Treated natural finish wood for an authentic outdoor experience.
Warm wood furniture is a fantastic option for your outdoor space. Some people even like to make their own outdoor wood furniture. But, whether you buy or DIY there’s a wide variety of wood finishes from which to select your amazing outdoor furniture.
Interestingly, most wooden outdoor furniture is made of woods like teak, eucalyptus and cedar. After you make your selection, be sure to follow manufacturer’s instructions for the maintenance and care of your new furniture.
3. Why not enjoy a touch of vintage romance?
Lavender and lace adorn this romantic vintage dining along side a still lake. Of course, you probably don’t want to leave these out in the rain! But, as a temporary setting for an intimate dinner for two or as one setting of many for a wedding reception, it’s delightful! Perhaps you could move this scene to a covered porch for every day use.
