In tropical countries, some ingenious minds have also designed those that are made of coconut, fiber, and jute. These materials are natural coolants and play a highly instrumental role in the prevention of over heating. If you are planning upon installing them, then we would really recommend those made with fiber and jute. Both the substances are natural heat insulators and are extremely economical. In fact, if you set your mind to it, you can also make them at home.
Patios are beautiful open-air spaces that are constructed in the backyard, porch, or garden. Like indoor home furniture sets that include seating arrangements and a center table, there are many ideas for patio furniture, as well. However, you can choose to make your patio, either a dining or a relaxation area, thus choosing the furniture, accordingly. This outdoor furniture can include sofa sets, coffee tables, chairs, round tables, dining sets, patio umbrellas, etc. But, if you want to find all these in an affordable price range, you can choose inexpensive materials which they are available in. Mentioned below, are a few alternatives you can use.
The problem with stamped concrete is the fact that it is made of concrete! Being one continuous surface, there is absolutely no place to expand with the heat or contract as it is cooled. So, when Mother Nature changes her moods, internal pressures within the slab cause cracks to develop on the surface. Crack repairs are an expensive and time-consuming affair, usually involving replacing the entire slab. Rain and snow are especially damaging to the surface. One way around this issue is to pattern a textured finish to better hide the cracks.
Plastic: Plastic furniture is light in weight, therefore not suitable for windy areas. It is not advisable to use plastic furniture near the barbecue or fire-pit area, because the heat might have an adverse effect on it. It is cheap in terms of cost and maintenance and can be cleaned with soap water as well.
