Can I Leave My High-End Patio Furniture Outside in the Winter?

When you spend a good amount of money on high-end patio furniture, you may wonder if the higher quality materials make a difference in what you need to do with your outdoor furniture in the winter. While it is true that the maintenance required on high-end patio furniture in CT is much less than you would have to put in with low-end furniture, if you want to make the most of your investment, you will still want to care for it properly.

What Are the Effects of Leaving Patio Furniture Out All Year?

Can you leave your furniture outside all winter? Yes, you can. The fabrics and frames are high quality and they were built with the elements in mind. That being said, there are some things that can happen to your furniture when you leave it outside to battle the wind, snow, and rain, and it doesn’t matter how well the outdoor furniture is built.

  • The Lifespan Will Decrease – While your outdoor furniture will likely survive the winter, the materials will still take a beating. With the winds and snowfall seen in Connecticut, it is inevitable. By bringing your furniture inside, you can eliminate this wear and tear and greatly extend your high-end patio furniture’s lifespan.
  • The Outdoor Furniture Will Get Filthy – As you can imagine, with full exposure to the elements, anything left outside will get covered in dirt, mud, grime, and anything else the wind blows in. So, when it does come time to use your patio furniture again, you will first have to dedicate several hours to cleaning it up.
  • There Is a Risk of Damage or Theft – When you leave your outdoor furniture outside, you also put it at risk of being stolen or getting damaged. A strong windstorm could blow it away, or a heavy snowfall could ruin the cushions.
