Using natural wood really helps - it has a warm and cosy effect, is incredibly individual and beautiful to look at. But it also needs a lot of care so that it stays beautiful for a long time - because of weather influences, such as withstanding the rain, sun and frost. Even insects or fungi can damage the furniture in your outside area. There is only one thing that helps protect wood, a coat of paint. Whether you use wood paint, varnish or special wood preservatives, it depends on the type of wood and what your goal is for coating it. For furniture, it is often advisable to apply a paint, it not only protects the wood from the influences of weather, but also makes it more durable. Seating in particular is often in need of protection. In addition, the painted coating can visually increase the appeal. There is only one thing to consider: paint is completely opaque, this means that the natural grain of the wood is lost. Stain or varnishes on the other hand adds protection but is transparent and maintains the natural appearance of the wood. It is particularly suitable for fences or privacy screens, but also windows and doors. All other important information about the different materials and their characteristics can be found on our advice page.
