31 Outdoor Concrete Furniture Ideas With Pros And Cons
What’s the most contemporary and edgy material to make furniture? Concrete! Famous designers create amazing chairs, tables, lamps, coat racks, benches and racks from it. But is it as suitable for outdoors as for indoors? Here are some pros and cons to consider before you buy or make such pieces.
Pros Of Outdoor Concrete Furniture
Concrete, as a material, is very budget-friendly compared with many of the other options available. For example, a concrete countertop costs a good deal less than one made of tile.
When you plan concrete furniture, you are limited only by your imagination. You and the concrete contractor you hire can create any size, shape, or design of mold that you wish, and turn your creations into reality.
The days when concrete was available only in dull gray are long gone. With integral color, concrete staining, or both, you can get pretty much any decorative hue that you like. Because it can be molded so well, concrete can be textured to simulate wood grain, or just about any texture your imagination can invent. It can also be given a wide variety of attractive finishes.
Concrete can withstand a lot of bad conditions; it’s resistant to fire, water, decay, insects, and more. Concrete furniture will stand up to just about any wear and tear.

Cons Of Outdoor Concrete Furniture
It’s tough. You can cushion a concrete chair or sofa all you like, but it will never have the give and spring that a conventional sofa or chair has. Frankly speaking, it may not be as comfortable as a usual upholstered chair.
It’s heavy. If your chairs are made of concrete, you won’t be able to move them when you clean. You’ll have to vacuum or wash around them.
Since concrete is porous, a concrete tabletop or counter may absorb spills, resulting in unsightly stains. If you decide to go with a concrete countertop for your outdoor kitchen, you’ll need to apply a sealer – and then you won’t be able to put hot items directly on it.
It cracks. While concrete is strong long-lasting, it is also susceptible to cracks if it is dropped or something heavy falls on it. Now you know all the points, will you get some of such pieces for your outdoor spaces?
