Teak furniture

Teak is a durable, yellowish-brown timber used in making furniture, indoor flooring, layer for indoor furnishings, and boat decks. The wood has natural oils, making it highly resistant to rotting, insect infestations, and weather disturbances like heat, rain, snow, or frost. It is also highly desired as outdoor furniture because it is water-resistant.

As shower stool, teak shower bench provides stability and comfort whether used in the bathroom or shower. Attractive, stylish, and lightweight, the rectangular teak bath bench has a compact design that perfectly fits any bath or shower. Despite being made of wood, you do not have to worry about wetting it since teak naturally resists growth of molds, mildew, and bacteria.

When it comes to taking care of teak chairs, there are often a lot of questions asked. Most people who own teak chairs know they love the way they look, feel and even the smell of them. But when it comes to taking care of them, they don’t always know what to do. Here’s a look at a few common questions asked about teak chairs.

What should I do to keep teak chairs looking like new?

This is a great and easy question. Teak chairs don’t need a lot of care to keep them looking like new. This is thanks to the oil that is naturally in the wood. Teak will keep looking new and beautiful for years to come. All you need to do is dust it from time to time and clean up anything that spills on it.Teak will change color over time. This is part of the charm to the wood. Teak wood that is set outside will lighten. Eventually it will lose those brown colors and turn to a silver shade. Teak chairs that are left inside all the time will take on another role. They will instead become darker and darker over time.

Should I stain my teak?

You do not need to stain teak wood. It comes with naturally beautiful colors and is sealed by it’s own oils. If you really want to change the color of your teak chairs, you can stain it, but you should be very careful before you select a stain. Look for a wood specialist, possibly a furniture maker, in your area and ask them for advice on how to best achieve the desired effect in your teak.

Can I paint my teak chairs?

Painting teak will do nothing more than make a major mess of a beautiful piece of furniture. Here’s the problem. We’ve already mentioned that teak has a lot of oil in the wood, naturally. Well, you can’t get that to go away. So, if you were to paint the teak wood, that oil will keep coming to the surface of the wood and pushing away anything that is trying to get in. This includes paint. If you paint teak, you will notice that the paint has a tough time sticking to the wood and instead will peel and make a mess.

Should I seal teak?

Many people do choose to seal their teak in an attempt to give their teak chairs an extra level of protection. This is not a problem. The wood will allow this, although the sealer will wear off over time and will have to be reapplied. Often this route is chosen by those who have teak patio furniture and want to give it a little extra strength against the elements.

The good news about a sealer is that if you decide later on that you no longer want the sealer on your teak, you can just let it wear off gradually and not reapply it.

There are several types of teak bath chairs depending on your needs: regular teak shower benches, benches with unbending legs and underneath shelf, wall mount teak shower shelf, teak shower bench that can be folded, triangular teak shower chair, adjustable teak shower seat, teak shower benches with aluminum legs, and many others. You can find them in the Internet and home improvement stores. You can also have them custom-made or handcrafted to add natural touch to the bathroom. Triangular teak benches fit neatly in the corner and do not get in the way of your bathing.

Worried about cleaning a teak bath chair? You actually do not need to exert extra effort to maintain and clean a teak bathroom chair. A regular detergent and water may be used to wipe out dirt. You can also follow the instructions of the manufacturer as to cleaning process. To regain the original honey brown color of teak wood, cleaning products are also available in the market.
