Everyone wants their garden or patio space to look its best and that is certainly achievable with rattan garden furniture, but why should you choose rattan over other materials? We delve into the benefits of rattan.

Rattan is a cost-effective alternative to wood.

Many of us like the classic look of wooden garden furniture but it comes with a hefty price tag. Rattan garden furniture is a much cheaper choice and still gives you a classic finish for your garden. Plus, rattan is not only more cost-effective than wood, but it also gives you much more choice in styles and colours and is often much more comfortable to sit on than wooden furniture.

Rattan is more weatherproof than other materials.

Rattan garden furniture is one of the most weatherproof materials on the market. The powder coated frames make the furniture rustproof and the synthetic rattan weave itself is UV protected as well as resistant to water, frost, snow and harmful UV rays that make other furniture types fade and lose colour.

Rattan is more durable than plastic.

Plastic garden furniture is one of the most commonly used furniture types in Britain. However, plastic furniture is light weight and easily damaged in rough weather conditions as well as not being the most attractive. Rattan garden furniture is much more durable and rarely needs replacing once bought with furniture lasting anywhere from 3-20 years. However, plastic will need replacing every couple of years.

Rattan Accessories

Rattan offers more choice than wood.

Wood furniture is often limited to chairs, tables, benches and picnic benches. With rattan garden furniture you are spoiled for choice. From dining sets, to sofa suites, to loungers and daybeds, to corner dining and rattan accessories, there is plenty to choose from and so many colours too.

Rattan requires less maintenance than metal.

Metal furniture such as iron and aluminium are also incredibly popular choices for garden furniture. However, these materials, like wood too, can require touch up care year-round to keep the furniture looking its best. Rattan garden furniture requires minimal care and can be left to its own devices. The only attention rattan furniture may need is a quick wipe down with a damp cloth if it has been left outdoors all winter.
