Teak furniture is great. It is made from one of the strongest timbers out there and the coloring also makes some very attractive statement pieces for your garden. So, whilst teak furniture can be great on its own, there are also a number of different accessories that you can add to it to increase its perceived value whilst also making your life easier.
In this article, we give you 4 of these accessories, the reasons for buying them, and how they have the potential to improve your teak garden furniture.
- Teak furniture cushions
If you are prioritizing comfort for your teak furniture then some simple cushions could be a great accessory to add. They are inexpensive and usually come in a variety of different styles that can improve not only the comfort of your teak furniture but also the overall look.
- A cover for your teak furniture
If you are looking for an inexpensive way to keep your teak furniture dry during the winter and ready for the summer, look no further than a humble dust cover.
These are a great way to help prevent the weathering process without treatment and are an accessory that you can add to your teak furniture that will certainly provide value. If required you can also get more comfortable covers that can add to the sitting experience of the furniture.
- Teak furniture varnish and treatment
This is less of an accessory and more of a necessity in some cases. If you have teak or any kind of timber-based furniture and you want to maintain it’s unweathered look, it is always best to go with a varnish or treatment to keep the timber in the best possible condition.
This will help stop the weathering process and add to the overall look of the teak furniture. This is naturally one of the more important and practical accessories on our list.
- Potted plants for teak tables
If you are lucky enough to have a teak table in your garden, you may want to spruce it up a bit with some greenery. Potted plants are a great way to do this as not only do they add that touch of nature to your table, they are also very low maintenance. If you want an even lower maintenance option you could go for a plastic plant, however, this will of course not have entirely the same effect!
