The pandemic that started last year has confined most of us to our homes. And this has most people yearning for the feeling of being in the outdoors. Inside the confines of our homes, the only place for this is the rooftop, balcony, or patio for those who are lucky enough to have one. And during the pandemic, many people have started working on these spaces. Dhaka rooftops have become a haven for gardening enthusiasts, who have created beautiful rooftop gardens. The balcony has also become a place for relaxation, with many creating relaxation corners in balconies. To make spending time in these places comfortable, you must also place outdoor furniture in these places.

Now you might think about bringing in some furniture from your home, but you have to keep in mind that in the outdoor, furniture is exposed to nature. So, just like when buying furniture for the indoors, you must put in a lot of thought when buying outdoor furniture. Another thing to keep in mind before purchasing outdoor furniture is to buy covers for them, as they will last longer if you put covers on them. Putting covers on them when they are not in use or when it is raining outside, will protect the furniture from degradation and make them last longer. So before looking at the types of outdoor furniture you can buy, let’s look at the types of covers you can get for your outdoor furniture.

But more importantly, they must completely cover your furniture and protect it from rust and rain. They must also dry very easily, otherwise, they might cause mold to form inside the furniture.

Types of Outdoor Furniture
