Plastic resin garden furniture is one of the most affordable materials you can buy. It’s perfect for something portable, or something inexpensive to get you started. If you’re considering buying this kind of outdoor furniture then here are the pros and cons of doing so.
Benefits Of Plastic Resin Garden Furniture
1) It’s Easy To Move Around: Many people own a few items of plastic resin garden furniture on top of their more permanent garden furniture thanks to the fact that it’s easy to bring out if you have a few more guests than normal. It’s also easy to bring round to a friend’s house if they need to borrow some extra chairs for a special occasion, or even to bring with you to the park and the beach if you wanted to! It’s pretty much the most lightweight furniture you can buy.
2) It’s Cheap: This kind of furniture is also cheaper than any other popular garden furniture type. It’s a good starting point if you don’t want to splurge on something more permanent yet, or if you want something the kids can use in the garden.
3) It’s Waterproof: Being made from plastic, this kind of furniture is extremely waterproof. The water simply runs off it. You won’t need to worry about treating it, as you would with wooden furniture, or rust, as you would with wrought iron furniture.
Drawbacks Of Plastic Resin Garden Furniture
1) It’s Very Lightweight: Although being lightweight means it’s easy to move around, it also comes with a number of drawbacks. For one, you could find that your furniture has blown away during very strong wind! If you want to use a table with an umbrella, you might also find that it topples over from the weight.
2) Can Be Difficult To Keep Clean: Maintenance tasks for plastic resin garden furniture are extremely easy: simply wipe down the plastic whenever you need to. Unfortunately, though, plastic furniture can get stained, or even scratched, over time. No matter what you do, you may find it impossible to get those grass and dirt stains off the furniture. It can start looking old very quickly.
3) Not As Stylish: Although resin garden furniture now comes in a huge range of styles, it doesn’t usually have the elegance and style that you’ll find with other garden furniture materials. This is especially true of the cheaper range, where a lot of resin furniture looks alike. It might not be the best choice if you’re going for a completely unique and original look in your garden!
