How to Choose the Best Adirondack Chair
Given the abundance of options available to us, choosing the right Adirondack chair can be a daunting task. First, you must decide on how much you’re willing to maintain the chair. There is wood, plastic, and recycled plastic. Wood can have a beautiful traditional finish, but takes seasonal oiling to maintain it and can splinter.
Plastic, you get a more modern feel but may look cheap. It’s easy to maintain, and the cost is more affordable.
Lastly, recycled plastic has eco-friendly looks and mimics the wood and withstands severe conditions. But it is more costly. It’s also important to note, plastic is a lighter material and thus easier to store and move around. Overall, it mostly depends on your budget, desire to maintain, and if you’re in need to store or transport the chair frequently.
