Are you wondering how to select furniture for the balcony and the verandah? Here' what you shoulddo. Select furniture that has synthetic fibres, which are UV conditioned for all seasons.

1 Opt for synthetic materials: Select furniture that has synthetic fibres, which are UV conditioned for all seasons.

2 Weather resistant furniture: Your outdoor furniture should be dirt repelling, very strong, environment-friendly. Moreover, it should come with lifelong warranty. Wicker, wood, teak and cherry is a very good choice. Also, select furniture that can withstand any weather conditions, such as rain, heat and snow.

3 Go for waterproof accessories: If you have cushions on your outdoor furniture chairs, choose ones that won't get ruined in the first rain storm. Find ones that are waterproof, or that can easily be cleaned.

4 Consider other things: Choose the options you wish to have. This would include an umbrella, a canopy, table and chairs.

5 Declutter: Another major thing to keep in mind is that don't use too many outdoor furniture pieces, don't decorate it like your living room. Also, the furniture should not be too bulky and heavy. The material should be light weight and easy to move, so that in case of windy or rainy season, the furniture could be easily moved inside.
