When it comes to outdoor dining, rattan garden furniture, when compared to other types of outdoor furniture, is coming out on top. Take a look at our categories and see how rattan compares with other options on the market...
· Style – there really is no accounting for taste and everyone goes for a different look; it’s what makes everyone and their home so unique and interesting. Rattan dining sets are universally popular because you can have the natural look that you would get from wood for example, combined with the sophisticated design that you might get from a metal dining set. You can go for the traditional style or the more modern style, but whatever your taste there is a rattan set to suit you.
· Durability – outdoor furniture is notoriously difficult to maintain. Wooden dining sets need to be carefully cared for to stop them from splitting and becoming damaged, and even then they often have a limited lifespan. You may need to re-paint, re-varnish or apply a special treatment to the wood every year in order for it to keep its strength, its weather resistance and its looks. Similarly with metal dining sets; keeping rust at bay can be an ongoing battle and treatments for rust, stiffness and staining are often very expensive and difficult to do yourself. Rattan dining furniture on the other hand, is so easy to care for because outdoor rattan is made from a synthetic version that has been specially designed to look as good as rattan and yet it is weather resistant (it can handle rain, salt water, snow, ice, wind, sunlight and extremes of hot and cold temperatures). You can keep the furniture looking good easily using a damp cloth, no need for special treatments or formulas that cost a fortune and have to be bought repeatedly in order to keep your furniture safe, strong and looking good.
· Comfort – wooden furniture and metal furniture, as well as the various types of plastic furniture available at the moment, are all comfortable to a degree, and can be made more comfortable with the addition of cushions and other accessories. What sets rattan furniture, from rattan sofas to rattan dining chairs, apart, is the way that they flex to give you added comfort. The movement that a rattan chair gives you means you are completely supported and able to dine easily, but you are also comfortable as the rattan remains soft and comfortable, even underneath the extensive range of cushions available for you to personalise your dining set with.
