  • High quality outdoor furniture can last years if cared for properly. At KETTLER USA, we offer a wide range of patio furniture to suits anyone’s tastes, from aluminum to resin to wrought iron to wicker.

    There’s nothing quite like outdoor dining – the cool breeze, the fresh air, the openness among friends sharing a bottle of wine against the backdrop of a lovely summer evening’s illuminant sky...

    Try as you may to stay on top of your outdoor furniture maintenance, life and its inevitable accidents happen. Don’t let rips and damage to your furniture go ignored. Here are a few surefire signs it’s time to look into purchasing new patio furniture.

    There’s been a big spill. Nothing ruins the elegance of tapas outdoors like red wine stains on your guest’s chair. If food or drinks have left irremovable stains on your patio furniture, it’s time to upgrade. To avoid this, clean up spills as soon as they happen. Don’t wait until after dinner.

    The furniture is unstable or rickety. Wind and bugs can make outdoor dining a nuisance, but there’s no excuse for unstable dining surfaces. If you have an outdoor table that won’t sit still, look into getting it repaired, or purchase a new one.

    Slings are ripped. Obvious but worth noting, ripped slings on outdoor furniture hinder their aesthetic and safety.

    Your cushions are moldy. Don’t hold onto cushions with mold developing. Clean your cushions on a regular basis to prevent this. Regular cleaning aside, cushions that have been outside during rainstorms are very prone to mold, so make sure to bring them inside if you’re expecting rain.

    Disastrous weather has hit your area. Tornadoes, hurricanes, intense storms, etc. If your area has been hit by hard weather, make sure to do a thorough check of your patio furniture to make sure everything is still in place and safe to use. Even better: move what furniture you can inside before the storm.

    Don’t let maintaining your patio slide. Your outdoor space should be just as wondrous as your indoor one. If you need a refresher, here are a few tips for how to care for and repair your outdoor furniture.
