Wicker: At the mention of wicker, many people think of rattan fibers. But wicker actually describes the woven style rather than the fibers used in it. These days, many beautiful sets of outdoor furniture are constructed from synthetic resin wicker. This material holds its color well against the sun's rays and it is generally more weather resistant than the better known natural fiber wicker. As with wooden furniture, a wicker outdoor coffee table can be preserved by bringing it in during the winter and during periods of bad weather.
In small garages or sheds, use garbage cans to keep brooms, shovels, rakes, and other long-handled gardening tools all in one place. You'll also have relatively new garbage cans on hand when the ones you use every week for trash need to be retired. Hang a board with hooks in the garage to keep tools neatly in place and also use small glass jars for keeping nails and screws visible but neat.
Wood: In your outdoor living spaces, especially when matched with coordinating lounge chair sets, wooden tables are a very handsome addition. They are often made from weather-resistant, durable varieties of wood, teak and the similar looking but more affordable eucalyptus being two very popular choices. These two wood varieties hold up against outdoor use far better than many others. However, they need some maintenance to help them retain their like new look. Do not leave them outside during the winter or during long periods of bad weather. Also, to keep them from weathering to silver-grey and to preserve their new look, they must be oiled at least once or twice a year with teak oil.
Nearly every home has at least one television, and depending on the size, TV's can take up a lot of valuable space. Be sure to keep yours on a piece of furniture that can be used for storing other items like books, DVD's and video tapes. Or, consider hanging the TV from the ceiling with a kit similar to those used in hospital rooms.
A common mistake is not making use of vertical space. Shelves and hooks give empty walls a purpose and greatly help to free up space turning them into storage areas. Hooks can be used to keep coats and scarves in one place and off of the furniture, as well as providing a good place to keep keys, umbrellas, purses and bags. Inexpensive shelves can be found in just about any store or it's easy enough to make your own with a piece of wood, some stain or paint, and a few screws and brackets. The unused space over windows is perfect for shelves that display items that you enjoy looking at but don't need to have handy.
