Practical patios furniture covers are as important as the furniture itself. A patio is generally a paved open-air extension of the house and ideal for lounging around with food, drinks and friends.

The problem is that the elements are sometimes unkind and each time Nature frowns it is not possible to lug in the furniture indoors. The obvious answer is patios furniture covers.

Before actually purchasing some points need attention. Outdoor furniture consists of a wide range of items made from wood, wicker, wrought iron, wicker or plastic of different sizes and shapes. Thus one must have a clear idea of the specific requirements of individual.

The next point is to note carefully is the weather conditions in the locality. If rain dominates then the covers should be made of plastic that is thick. If the area is humid then the covers must be such that it prevents the furniture from being affected by it.

The same applies to snowy conditions where frost dictates the weather. Winter is particularly a bad time for outdoor furniture especially because of its cycle of thaw and freeze. The water that settles in the cracks freezes and expands causing irreparable cracks. Ice and snow can even form below the tarp.

Teak products require a breathable cover. If not protected mould and mildew will form. In some cases the manufacturer will give the best advice. Iron furniture can rust and glass can crack with weather fluctuations. Vinyl and plastic too is vulnerable to cold spells and can break with the weight of ice.

Patio chair covers usually fit most of the outdoor chairs. The features include Velcro tying system. The waterproof covers have been treated so as to prevent UV damage and will last for many years. There are round covers for spherical tables. The vinyl material is soft and thick that will give the patio a look of luxury.

A point to note is that the covers do not have holes for umbrellas to pass through. There are also chaise lounge covers, table and chair combination covers, covers for barbecue grill, fire-pit, chimenea, umbrella, wicker furniture, gliders, ottomans as well as storage bags for cushions. The chimenea need special protection from nesting insects.

Some companies cater not only to popular sizes but to most bizarre sizes also. The covers are generally light gray in colour so that the dust does not show but colourful prints are also available. The process of colour infusion prevents fading. The hook and loop systems are full proof against depredations of Nature.

The underlying and most important fact is that the costlier the material the better protection is it for the furniture. This holds true for most purchases and also for practical patios furniture
