Teak is the hardest wood on earth. When planning your outdoor furniture arrangement, a teak table and chairs are durable and attractive choices. The light color of teak wood allows you many options for the colors of cushions, umbrella and other accessories to create the look and feel you're going for.
A teak table and chairs are light in color, making it easy to create different looks, such as light and airy or dramatic. Some people enjoy their outdoor furniture year round, and buy multiple cushions with matching umbrella to offer different looks for the different seasons. Try some of these looks to make your deck, patio or poolside a mood enhancing visual display.
For a warm, summery look, choose furniture accessories in the colors of the sun, such as reds, yellows and oranges. The light teak wood balances these dramatic colors. Warm colors give the effect of opening up small spaces, so these colors are perfect for small areas, such as under an awning or in a grouping near the barbecue grill. Selections are available by Bristol and Haywood.
The cool colors of spring, such as blues, greens and purple, are calming. If you use your outdoor space to relax and unwind in the evenings or on the weekends, cool colors are excellent for setting a soothing tone. Like warm colors, cool colors can open up small areas, so these are great choices in small nooks where a few chairs fit.
Deep, bold colors create a rich look. These colors are dramatic against the light color of a teak table and chairs. Burgundy and deep green work especially well with a background of light colors, such as the white concrete around the pool or set against a light wall of the exterior of the home. These are also great color choices for using the patio furniture during the fall and winter months.
Nobody knows your mood and how colors affect it better than you do. Any colors that create the look and feel you want for your outdoor seating and dining areas are the right ones for you. Experiment with seat cushions of different colors. Swap them out frequently to keep them fresh and change up the look of the outdoor dining area often.
To enjoy some shade in your dining area, get a coordinating outdoor umbrella to cover the table and match your cushions. Bring in other accessories, such as flower pots, vases and fountains to give the area a fully furnished feel.
