Choosing Poly Furniture for Your Outdoor Space

Your outdoor space is meant to provide relaxation and a beautiful oasis — not extra stress. That’s why poly furniture is ideal when furnishing your outdoor space

Poly outdoor furniture is made from high-density polyethylene (HDPE), foaming compounds, UV-inhibiting pigment and other additives. HDPE comes from recycled materials, making it an eco-friendly and sustainable furniture option. HDPE is often made using the following:

  • Shampoo bottles
  • Bleach bottles
  • Milk cartons
  • Detergent bottles
  • Pipes
  • Cereal box liners
  • Grocery bags
  • Cutting boards

HDPE gives these materials a second life by molding them into beautiful wood-like furniture pieces. In addition to sustainability, poly furniture has several other benefits, including stunning design possibilities, versatility, durability and easy maintenance.

HDPE is so versatile and pliable that it can be made into various types of furniture or outdoor accent pieces. Unique furniture is no problem with HDPE. With so many color and design options, there’s sure to be poly furniture that fits your design style.

Why Poly Furniture Is the Best Low-Maintenance Furniture Option for the Outdoors

We’ve already discussed how poly furniture is beautiful, but is poly furniture easy to maintain? Absolutely. Poly furniture mimics the look of furniture you love without all the hassle and maintenance that comes with them. From vibrant furniture colors that last to weather-resistant materials, low-maintenance poly furniture is the best choice for homeowners looking for high-quality furniture that lasts. 

Consider the following low-maintenance benefits of poly furniture for your outdoor area:

Maintains Color

Maintains Color

Poly furniture includes a UV protective agent to keep the color of your furniture vibrant and beautiful despite sun and moisture exposure. With poly furniture, you don’t have to worry about repainting or restaining your furniture. Poly furniture resists peeling, fading and cracking. The color you see when you purchase your low-maintenance outdoor furniture is the same color you’ll see after years of owning and using it. 

Easy to Maintain

Luckily, poly furniture does not require consistent cleaning like other types of furniture. Every now and then, your poly outdoor furniture will collect some dirt or debris, but cleaning is easy. 

First, remove any cushions, pillows or other decorative items. Make a simple solution of mild dish soap and warm water and wipe down the furniture. Pay extra attention to any grooves that may hide dirt. Once you’re done scrubbing the furniture, rinse off any remaining soap with clean water and allow the furniture to air dry. Another cleaning option involves creating a bleach and water mixture.

You can also use a pressure washer to clean your outdoor furniture as long as you ensure your machine’s pressure is below 1500 pounds per square inch (psi). However, pressure washing is only recommended for tough stains. Poly furniture is fairly stain-resistant, so you should rarely need to pressure wash it.

If you’re looking for the best low-maintenance patio furniture, look no further than poly furniture options. Unlike wood outdoor furniture, you don’t have to worry about your poly outdoor furniture rotting or splintering. Poly furniture is built to last and can withstand scratches or other cosmetic damage.

Wood outdoor furniture will need periodic sanding and sealing to keep the furniture looking good and safe to use. Sanding and sealing take time and costs money. Other timely and costly furniture maintenance includes stripping, coating, staining and waterproofing. When you own poly furniture, you can avoid time-consuming maintenance. Poly furniture is truly a one-time purchase, and the only maintenance it will need is a quick, occasional wipe down.

Mold and Mildew Resistant

Keeping your furniture looking great is important, but you also want to make sure your outdoor furniture is safe for you and your guests to use. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), mold exposure can cause reactions as minor as a stuffy nose or as serious as fever or shortness of breath.

Furnishing your outdoor area with poly furniture takes away the stress and worry of mold or mildew accumulation because HDPE is mold and mildew resistant. Your furniture will be safe to use, and you can avoid the mold or mildew that other types of outdoor furniture are more susceptible to. With poly furniture, there will be no more time wasted examining your furniture for mold or mildew.

Weather Resistant

Poly furniture makes excellent low-maintenance deck furniture for homeowners in various climates. Rain or shine, poly outdoor furniture can handle it all. Even strong gusts of wind are no issue for poly furniture. Poly furniture is extremely heavy, so you never have to worry about your outdoor tables or chairs blowing away in a storm. 

Sun exposure will not damage the look of your poly furniture or compromise the furniture’s integrity. Even if you live in a warm, sunny climate with no shade, your furniture will continue to look just as good as the day you bought it. No need for paint to revive the vibrant colors. 

Even in rainy areas, poly furniture is built to last. You don’t have to worry about waterproofing your furniture or moving it to shelter every time it rains. Unlike other types of furniture, a little rain or moisture will not damage your poly furniture.
