Before making a purchase, it is a good idea to know the different materials used in making outdoor lounges in order to decide on one for your home. Aluminum chaise lounges are a popular choice for outdoor use, as aluminum has a high strength to weight ratio and is relatively inexpensive. Its not the most environmentally conscious choice, however, as extracting aluminum from the earth is a destructive process.
Everyone deserves a little added comfort when they are outside taking in the scenery, or as most of us do, falling asleep. The wooden chaise lounge is among the most favorable chaise lounge chairs currently available. There are many different styles, colors and materials widely available today, from recycled plastic for the environmentalist to the Adirondack or teak. Person style is very important when considering the perfect chaise lounge for your outdoor area.
The hardest decision you will encounter on your journey for the perfect outdoor chaise lounge chair for you yard will more than likely be buying only one. It is not all that uncommon for a person to set out to buy an outdoor chaise lounge to go into a particular area of their yard. Once getting the chair home in put into the precise location imagined, the person then realizes they want to add a couple to the pool area, the side yard and anywhere else that could use some added comfort.
Other wood chaise lounges suitable for outdoor use include those made with other rot resistant woods, such as cedar. Wicker chaise lounges are a newer entrant to the market, but they have already become popular due to the strength and beauty of wicker, a natural material. Natural wicker is more suitable for use in patio chaise lounges where there is a roof to protect the lounge from rain, however, as wicker does not like being wet. Resin chaise lounges are safer for outdoor use.
Plastic, often used in pool lounges, is probably the cheapest in terms of cost. However, this cheapness also applies to quality, as plastic generally doesnt hold up to the sun that well. It tends to get bleached and brittle, fading if it is a color rather than white, and discoloring if it is white. Protective covers are a must for most plastic outdoor furniture left directly exposed to the elements.
If you want a modern type of chaise chair, then you can acquire the ones framed by metals and then made more relaxing by foam, leather and cloth. If you want it to be more of a decor, something antique like, elegant and rare, I suggest you buy those which are made from wood, bamboo, rattan. With it, you are not only helping small industries and workers who are designing and hand-crafting these products, you are also developing a more elegant sense of fashion in your home.
