Any keen gardener will tell you that while traditional wooden garden furniture looks great it has a fundamental flaw. No matter how much you polish and care for it – traditional garden furniture will eventually rot with natural weathering. Experienced gardeners have started to overcome this problem through the clever use of Rattan garden furniture which is made out of PVC material. This means that it is completely weatherproof and can be left outdoors all-year round. Most importantly, Rattan furniture looks like the real thing to help you maintain a traditional country garden look!
Rattan furniture is made with the colour and look of natural rattan, yet it has a much longer life expectancy and is much more affordable. It’s easily the best way to enjoy a traditional garden look without having to completely replace your garden furniture every two or three years!
The main advantages of Rattan Garden Furniture are:
- Life expectancy: Unlike real rattan, which can fade in the sun, or crack from the extreme cold of winter, PVC Rattan furniture is designed to withstand the heat and cold, meaning you can leave it outside all-year round.
- Easy to care for: Another reason that experienced gardeners choose PVC Rattan furniture is because it is very easy to care for. Plastic PVC furniture is not going to be eaten by bugs and you don’t need to spend time polishing it, just a wipe down with a damp cloth is enough to keep it clean. This saves you a lot of time, which you can better spend enjoying your garden.
- Strong yet light: Since Rattan furniture is made of PVC it is much lighter than real wooden furniture. This makes it much easier to lift and move around, meaning that when the BBQ is finished you can easily put it back into storage yourself – without needing to ask the neighbours to help! This makes Rattan furniture ideal for the elderly. At the same time PVC Rattan furniture is much stronger than normal rattan and keeps this strength with age. This greatly adds to the life expectancy of your furniture and helps protect it against rough treatment from children or pets.
- Huge selection to choose from: Rattan garden furniture has greatly increased in popularity in recent years and there is now a huge selection available to choose from. Just by spending a little time on the internet, you will see that Rattan garden furniture is available in so many different colours and styles. It is certain that you will be able to find something to match the distinct feel of your garden. Some manufacturers will also allow you to customize the colour of your furniture. Want to give your garden furniture a different look to match the seasons? Why not buy several sets of different coloured cushion covers. You can change these as the year goes by to completely change the character of your furniture!
