Finishing Details

While the bulk of the furniture may look good, it is the finishing details that will separate the good to the perfect pieces of teak furniture. It can be difficult to tell whether the finishing details are quality or not, so this is why you need to engage quality stores or designers, as they will be able to walk you through all the important details.

It is also a good idea to ask about warranty options as well as if there are any available. When you look at your final product it should be finely sanded meaning that it is smooth to the touch in every area. Look for consistencies in any patterns as well.

Wood Quality

It all starts with the piece of wood, this is the base and everything moves up from here. This is why it is so important that the quality of wood is high. If it is not, then it is to be understood that all other aspects of the teak furniture will be of poor quality as well.

The designers and builders of teak furniture should have good relationships with the wood suppliers so they can go and choose the best pieces of wood. It is especially important when building large pieces of furniture as you would usually want one large piece of wood, so the quality needs to be very high to ensure your piece of furniture lasts a long time to come.

Construction Quality

It can take a designer/builder a few weeks to put together a quality piece of teak furniture. If you are looking for something that is more one of a kind, then it can take a little bit longer. You can also work with your designer/builder each step of the way and provide feedback on how the piece is looking in its current state. Generally speaking, the longer a piece takes to build, the higher the quality will be.

This is why you shouldn’t be shocked when ordering a piece (especially a one-of-a-kind one) if the estimated time for completion is over a month-long.  There are lots of things that can go wrong when it comes to designing a piece of teak furniture, which is why the best companies will take their time to ensure only the most quality pieces are constructed.
