Whether it is relaxing after a stressful day at the office or holding a weekend entertainment for friends and neighbours, outdoor areas – like patios, pool decks or terraces are ideal places. Whether you have ample place outside with landscaped exterior with swimming pools, outdoor kitchens, huge gardens with shrubs and plants or it is a small size terrace, you need good sturdy outdoor furniture.

What kind of furniture you can use outdoors? Wood, metal or wood and metal combo or bamboo and cane are the materials that are normally used for outdoor furniture. Not all outdoor areas will have shelters always, so you need to have furniture that cans stand the weather when it turns rainy or windy. It is essential that not only the furniture need to be unaffected by weather, but it needs to look good too.

One of the most popular choices for outdoor furniture is bamboo or cane furniture. These are environmentally sustainable. Bamboo and canes are not like hardwood trees – taking decades to grow into an adult mature tree. They rejuvenate themselves very fast. Also a bamboo or cane is never cut off from root when harvested for furniture use. The roots are left and these grow within two-three years which can be again harvested.

Wonderful Wicker Furniture Weaves Magic in Your Home And Garden

What is wicker furniture? How is it made? Is it any way different from the cane or rattan furniture? These are some common questions asked whenever the subject of wicker furniture or cane/rattan furniture is mentioned. While cane furniture is made of individual cane poles fixed to frames, wicker is made from weaving natural vines and barks wrapped around frames. Both are very popular choice of furniture – for outdoors but nowadays for indoors as well. Until recently both rattan and wicker furniture were made from totally natural materials. The frames were made of strong and sturdy natural canes bent to desired shape by heating it to high temperatures. In Asia, even today, wooden and cane frames are used and traditional natural fires from bamboo, cane, and willows are used for weaving and the wicker furniture is totally hand-made from 100% natural sustainable green products.

But today, almost all wicker furniture are made using sturdy high-quality light-weight aluminium alloy frames or in some cases heavier steel frames. And the wicker used to wrap around the frames is mostly synthetic. Recycled plastic/resin, vinyl or vinyl/resin is used for making synthetic wicker material. Resin synthetic wicker equals the wicker woven from natural fibres in looks but is sturdier and ages more slowly. It is also naturally water resistant. A good quality wicker weave should be tight, uniformly woven, close together without any visible gaps and have a smooth finish. It is flexible but quite strong. But it is advisable to keep the wicker furniture under cover in shade in extreme weathers. It is easy to clean; just vacuuming it lightly and wiping with a moist cloth should be sufficient. Occasionally a lick of varnish may help. If the cushions can be removed, the frame can be quickly washed with water and wiped dry to remove any spills etc.

Here are some beautiful and wonderful looking wicker furniture pieces from Pierantonio Bonacina. Look at the flowing chaise lounge in natural shade. How beautiful the ottoman looks? Don’t you think you would like the hanging chair in your terrace? The corner sofa set will add to the beauty and ambience to any living room! Comfortable, chic and highly sophisticated-looking wicker furniture is light, strong and durable; looks very beautiful and elegant and is easy to maintain. Coupled with contrast coloured or elegant white cushions, they are things of beauty giving joy forever. When properly taken care of, the wicker furniture lasts for long years giving excellent service. Don’t you think you would love to have some wicker furniture at your home?

Enhance Your Home with Indoor Swimming Pools

Swimming has been the popular workout for health-conscious people today. No matter what is your age, swimming has been recommended as an important part of the best overall health regimen. Indoor pools can be a boon for people in the colder region swimming outside is difficult when the weather is not conducive. Indoor swimming pools are safer option even for people with medical problems like multiple sclerosis, back problems etc.

Getting an indoor swimming pool can enhance the value of your home immensely. Because indoor swimming pool is inside an enclosed space, you have to pay more attention when you are designing indoor swimming pools. There are two common hazards that come up with indoor pools. Water in an enclosed space creates a lot of condensation and the atmosphere becomes more humid than outside where normally sunlight evaporates the excess moisture and condensation to a great extent.

Normally incorporating good ventilation inside the pool will control the moisture content sufficiently. Especially when the pool is heated, you need to see that there are windows, skylights and air vents with exhaust fans which will suck out the moisture and help prevent excessive condensation. If there is glass enclosure, sliding doors at regular intervals will help in cross ventilation to make the air inside dry and comfortable.

Also you need to think of extra moisture content and condensation that will occur when you design the enclosure and ceiling of the swimming pool. All construction, fittings, hardware and even furniture should not be affected by the excessive moisture content that is sure to be present. Today there are high-quality dependable water sealant and moisture proof treatments are available which will keep the pool area as good as newly constructed.

Another aspect you should pay attention is to have the indoor pools sufficiently well lit. Along with electrical lights, you must check for using sunlight directly and solar powered lights to light up the pool. This will help in keeping the water free from algae and other problems.

Pool border areas and the adjoining areas that surround the water level must not become slippery due to the water splashes and puddles that may occur. The drainage should be perfect to keep the area dry, neat and hygienically clean.

Here are some images of beautiful looking indoor pools from David Hallam Ltd. Don’t you think you can also have such a beautiful indoor pool at your home?
