5 Common Questions About Rattan Garden Furniture
Before purchasing rattan garden furniture, people often have important questions that will aid their decision to buy. We’ve answered the 5 most common questions, to help make the purchasing process easier.
Is Rattan Garden Furniture Weatherproof?
Our rattan garden furniture is incredibly weatherproof and can be left outside all year round. This is because it is made from HDPE synthetic rattan and powder coated aluminium frames. These materials are extremely weather resistant and rustproof meaning the furniture can be left outside all year without weather damage. Our rattan is designed to withstand temperatures of -20°C and +40°C so even in extreme temperatures your furniture is safe to be left outside.
Is your Rattan Garden Furniture Authentic?
If you live in the UK, you will probably not be able to get hold of authentic rattan garden furniture. This is because genuine rattan is not designed to withstand the UK’s climate. Real rattan rots in damp conditions and therefore synthetic rattan is used in the UK to prevent this from happening.
Is Rattan Garden Furniture Machine Made?
No, all rattan garden furniture is hand made and hand woven. This means that each piece is slightly unique and that each piece is made with painstaking care and attention to detail. This means you can guarantee each furniture piece is of top quality.
Can My Rattan Furniture Be Left Outside?
Yes, as mentioned previously, rattan garden furniture is extremely weatherproof and can be left outside all year round without cause for concern. However, if you want to add extra protection to your furniture, a range of weatherproof covers are available.
Are the Cushions Waterproof?
This is often dependent on the manufacturer, but as a rule of thumb we suggest that all cushions are stored indoors when not in use or in bad weather conditions. Most cushions can withstand a light shower but will experience some staining or weather damage in worse conditions.
Lots of our cushion covers are machine washable which will help remove any dirt or stains, however we do not recommend leaving the cushions outdoors when not in use.
