Polyvinyl chloride pipes are known for their quality, lightweight, and sturdy features and widely used in residential and commercial plumbing projects. These pipes which are mostly used for piping projects can be used in making furniture, too. PVC piping can be turned into really amazing pieces for outdoor furniture.
Before you start browsing through various ideas, it is essential to know more about the material. There is a variety of pipes available, but the thin ones with a diameter of an inch are commonly used. Moreover, these pipes are rated as 'furniture quality' and have greater strength and stability. This makes them ideal as frames for beds and relaxing chairs.
The fittings are the most important elements when making the entire structure. Straight and curved two-way pipes, including elbow, three-way elbow, and four-way fittings make up an entire piece of furniture. The diameter of the pipe must be considered while buying these fittings.
While the pipes are basically available in white, you can ask the manufacturer for colored pieces, as well.
