Metal is broad term. It seems pretty bland. I don’t know about you, but when I hear the word “metal” I always think of that crazy stuff Mother always told us to stay away from when it started lightning. So, I’ve always strayed away from metal. Call me a scaredy cat, but I ain’t getting shocked! In reality, metal can be almost everything. It’s pretty harmless. So, don’t be like me and stray away from metal patio decor.
Let’s go crazy with metal. If you don’t already have metal patio decor! You should get some. It’s pretty fun to play around with. Metal isn’t all that boring. You just have to play around with it a little.
If You’re Scared Beware
With metal, it can be hard to stay outside and enjoy it. This is mainly with a metal patio chair. If it rains, your chairs will be slippery and wet if you don’t have an overhead canopy. Guests hate getting their clothes wet if you have wet furniture that just holds rain. It’s also kind of yucky.
I personally don’t like metal patio chairs, but accessories are a different story. Get some metal vases or wall hangers. Your guests won’t even come into direct contact with those most of the time. If it rains, let the decor just hold it. It was going to do that anyway. Let your guests touch it at their own risk.
Loving That Covering
A nice covering or topping always goes well with your furniture. It looks great on your patio. What a lovely way to display. Really, anything metal should have something covering it. Metal is just super slippery and smooth. Your guests have an eye for comfort, and you should too.
Covering keep your guests from slipping all over your furniture. Everyone hates furniture that doesn’t compliment their bodies and keep them in place. It’s the whole aspect of comfort. I know I like to be comfortable, and if I’m not, I know I always look forward to departure time.
A Bug That Will Tug
There are just some things I don’t love about metal. For starters, metal is really hard. Sometimes even with the best cushions, you can still feel that hard metal surface underneath your bum. It doesn’t always feel too good. In fact, it never feels good. Your guests will be restless, and they will probably tumble when they stand up because your metal chairs sent their butts to sleep. Metal is the perfect lullaby.
I also don’t like how it can appear to become faded after a while. I don’t know if my eyesight is going bad or if it actually does happen with a lot of people out there. Metal is just sometimes a pest, but if you like it, go for it! It just has to grow on some people like a parasite, I guess. Make the most of it!
A Smell That Will Tell
In my experience, metal has a certain scent to it. It doesn’t always smell bad, but it doesn’t really smell good either, at all… unless your nose is just into that sort of thing. Especially when it rains, it just seems to have this smell that lingers in the air. I don’t know what it is about this metal. Because of this, I just usually limit my patio to about one metal piece of wall decor.
Obviously, you may feel different about metal. Metal is a good piece of decoration that your guests will love. If you have a lot of metal decor, maybe light some firewood are spark up a candle so that any kind of metal scent is swallowed up by better smelling fragrances.
Settle With Metal
It’s your choice. You make the decision. Are you going to sit back and settle with some metal? Your patio sure is going to look amazing. I can tell already. Yeah, I have a sense for creativity. You can’t hide it from me. Y’all are some creative people. Let’s get some metal.
Alright, you creative breed. Make it your own. Own that patio of yours! You want metal? You’ve got metal! Your patio sure is going to turn out to be something amazing.
