Buying your first Outdoor Lounge Set is almost as exciting as buying your first house with a garden. Before you rush out to shop, take the time to figure out the best all-weather pieces for your patio, deck, or porch. Learn from my mistakes and avoid making expensive errors when shopping for outdoor furniture.
Think Of The Colour Scheme
Whether you choose grey garden furniture, or furniture sets of any other colour, it’s important to strike the right tonal balance to suit the surrounding environment. Classic colours tend to be the most popular, be it greys, blacks or browns, which are available in a range of different shades. Opting for one of these colours means that even if you move home, or the garden or house aesthetic changes, the rattan garden furniture remains adaptable enough to still fit in.
And don’t forget, if you want to change up the look of any of your garden furniture sets you don’t necessarily have to go out to purchase brand new alternatives. Use throws, blankets and cushions to add a fresh new twist to their aesthetic. This is also a great idea during the winter when you might want to make the space feel more cosier as the temperature begins to fall. Rattan garden furniture can also be repainted very easily, which allows you to get creative with your colour palette without having to spend a fortune each and every time.
Consider Your Weather
Is your weather hot and dry, or do you live near the coast? Does it rain often? Does the midday sun beat down on your outdoor space? These are all important questions to answer before selecting outdoor furniture because outdoor exposure is hard on all furniture, no matter the climate. Hot, dry conditions can make wood splinter and crack, while frequent moisture can promote rot. Strong winds can send aluminum furniture flying; iron won't blow away but also won't stand up to salty air. The sun is perhaps the worst of all. It dulls and discolors paint, bleaches fabrics and wood, and generally degrades plastic and other synthetic materials.
To choose furniture that'll last, be realistic about the material's inherent properties. Metal is largely unaffected by sunlight, while plastic and rubber are always vulnerable to UV damage, no matter what the product's manufacturer claims. This is doubly true at high elevations. Likewise, wood furniture may come with a quality, factory-applied, weather-resistant finish, but, eventually, that finish will wear and break down, and you'll be faced with refinishing the wood or replacing the furniture. Think about how the furniture will look five, 10, and 20 years down the road.
Is rattan furniture durable?
Rattan furniture is “extremely durable” according to Bridgman, which makes it “the best material that we’ve found for outdoor furniture”.
It's expected to last a minimum of 10 years, but the furniture’s durability is affected by how it is made. While all rattan furniture is hand-woven, some manufacturers use nails to secure the material in place. "They’re the bits that would rust or fail”, says Bridgman.
Instead, you should opt for furniture where the rattan material has been wrapped around the frame and not secured with metal fixtures.
Try choosing the right color according to your surroundings.. You are not limited to natural tones of wood; the black, white, and beige of wicker; or metal pieces. Colorful finishes flourish in the world of outdoor furniture, for stylish longevity, reserve bold splashes of color for cushions and accent pieces.
