Okay, so you’ve decided that you want to bring one of these outdoor rocking chairs into your house (or maybe a few of them even). You need to know, however, that while they can be a very good addition to your home and garden they also require you to be knowledgeable in how to care and protect them, as well. Also, you probably also want to know which qualities to look out for when buying those chairs, as you don’t want a cheaply made and cheaply looking one.
As for the protection, what we mean is that outdoor furniture in general is very susceptible to sun, rain, the cold of the winter and similar natural effects. To protect your chair from that you need to be prepared to cover them with some kind of clear coating, although this kind of solution only lasts for a few years. You can also try Marine Varnish products, as they are being rumored to be quite good at strengthening wood furniture. We didn’t protect our white outdoor rocking chair and they deteriorated pretty fast, so avoid our mistake.
You also need to know that the chairs that you find in general stores are usually of mediocre quality, at best. Just think about it – their costs are several hundred bucks, at most, and the best premium rocking chairs cost as much as 35000 dollars sometimes. The premium chairs are made by the finest craftsmen, who put a lot of effort into designing them to be extremely good-looking, strong and comfortable. Every detail of these chairs is carefully calculated so that your head, your body and your arms can rest effortlessly, while at the same time preserving the dimensions and shapes that guarantee the furniture to last for a long time.
Unfortunately, not everyone can afford to spend so much money on just one chair – if so, then just go to places like amazon.com and ebay.org – those are actually the places where we found our round counter height dining sets, as well. When looking for your chair make sure that you read the reviews – you need to make sure that the chair rocks properly, that it is comfortable and that it looks good (of course, in reasonable limits, as they are no premium quality there), or else you’ll just have to return it to the vendor or sell it on ebay later on.
