Now, more than ever, people are looking for effective ways to add value to their homes. If this sounds like you, we’re here to tell you that maintaining and furnishing your outdoor space isn’t something you should ignore!
Read on to discover whether teak furniture adds value to your home…
Add value to your home by transforming your outdoor space
Of course, ensuring you have a beautiful and functional outdoor area will have a beneficial effect on your lifestyle and day-to-day routine, but from a property value perspective - is it worth it? Well, we asked the experts.
Established in 1991,Town and Country are a market leader in the estate agency industry, with successful branches across Chester, Wrexham, Mold, North Wales and Shropshire.
Here’s what they said about how your outdoor space can add value to your property:
“We do believe that when thinking about selling your home, you should definitely consider your outdoor areas. I’d say a safe figure would be up to a 5% increase, which doesn’t sound like a lot, however, if you have a house for £200,000 - it could add an extra £10,000!”
We also askedTown and Country whether taking care of the front of the house had the potential to increase the overall value of the property. Here’s what they had to say:
“If you look after the front of your property, you’re making sure that the property has great “kerb appeal”. As they say, first impressions do count, and any potential buyers will already have a positive opinion before they’ve even stepped foot into the house.”
So, according to leading experts in the field, taking the time to ensure you have a beautiful garden space is well worth the investment. And one of the best ways to do that is by beautifully furnishing your existing landscape.
How teak garden furniture can add value to your home
When creating an immaculately presented outdoor space, you’ll need to consider how you furnish it to reveal the overall potential of your outdoor space. Remember, prospective buyers will want to be able to visualise themselves living there.
Solid garden teak furniture is ideal for creating a functional outdoor space, without compromising on the appearance and style of your garden. Plus, it’ll provide you with the highest quality furnishings needed to transform your garden into a high-value space.
As solid teak is a highly versatile and durable material, it is used to create a wide range of furniture features. This can include (but is not limited to) full garden sets, sun loungers, benches and even worthwhile accessories.
You’ll be able to use solid teak furnishings to showcase the full potential of your outdoor space. It’ll be easy to demonstrate functional and stylish areas with real purpose, that somehow slot in together to create a full picture.
For example, here at Cotswold Teak, you would be able to use our collections to create spaces for alfresco dining and socialising, as well as additional smaller pieces of furniture for relaxing and unwinding.
Additional benefits of teak garden furniture
Apart from adding value to your home, there are many other benefits associated with investing in this type of garden furniture.
Furniture made from solid teak is beautiful in appearance, highly durable, long-lasting, and low maintenance, which is often why teak garden furniture is seen as an excellent investment. We’ll explain how in a little more detail below.
If hassle-free outdoor furnishings sounds appealing to you, solid teak would be an ideal choice. Solid teak garden furniture requires very little maintenance to keep its immaculate appearance.
Of course, all outdoor furniture pieces will require a little maintenance every so often, simply because they are exposed to the elements and environmental factors that can cause damage over time. For solid teak garden furniture, all you’ll require is a simple solid teak care and protection kit.These solutions will ensure your garden furniture remains clean, protected and shielded from the elements.
Another reason why solid teak garden furniture is so sought-after is because of its long-lasting qualities.
Solid teak is incredibly durable and renowned for its longevity, sturdiness and reliability when creating premium outdoor furniture. So, when you furnish your space with teak features, they'll easily last a lifetime - with the proper care and attention!
If you’re an eco-conscious consumer, you'll be glad to know that solid teak is a much more eco-friendly alternative to other common outdoor garden furniture pieces - and we’ll briefly explain why below.
At Cotswold Teak, our entire solid teak furniture selection is strictly made using the finest quality solid teak, which is also FLEGT licensed.

Of course, the quality of the solid teak will depend on the retailer, so we’ll use ourselves as an example.
As we mentioned above, at Cotswold Teak, we only use premium quality solid teak to create our beautiful outdoor furniture. We'll explain why this type of solid teak reigns supreme below:
- High oil content - solid teak is renowned for its high oil content. This means that it offers enhanced protection against UV rays and humidity.
- Tight wood grain - the solid teak we use has a naturally tight wood grain. This is renowned for being an accurate indicator of the overall integrity and strength of the timber.
- Strongest hardwood option available - solid teak is one of the strongest hardwoods available, which is why it's used to make products that require long-lasting durability, such as outdoor furniture.
- Naturally resistant to harmful factors - not only is solid teak water-resistant, but it's also fungi-resistant and insect-resistant.
- Long-lasting beauty - outdoor furniture crafted from premium solid teak will maintain its beautiful golden colour for many years, with very little maintenance required. Eventually, the timber will start to transition into a striking silver tone. If, for whatever reason, you would prefer to preserve the golden colour - a simple teak care and protection kit will do the trick.
Solid teak is an incredibly durable material, meaning that it can be used to create many garden furniture styles.
For example, we offer an extensive range of premium garden furniture collections, suitable for many lifestyle preferences. In addition, most of our collections are available in many sizes, styles, and designs - making it easier than ever to choose the right pieces for your home.
We’ve been sure to carefully curate our collections to also include pieces that complete and complement our solid teak furniture. For more information on our collections, see below for a list of our extensive ranges:
