4 Reasons it Makes Sense to Choose Rattan Outdoor Furniture

I live in a house with very little outdoor space, but I still wanted to grow some of my own food, so I started a container garden on my patio a few years ago. The first year was a steep learning curve with a lot of trial and error, but I've learned a lot about growing vegetables in containers and believe it's a valuable skill for everyone to have. I started this blog to share what I've learned and provide tips for making the most of the outdoor space you have. You'll find posts on a range of topics, such as the nutrients required for healthy vegetable plants, how to prepare your soil, companion planting for natural bug control and succession planting to grow more vegetables in the space you have available. I hope you enjoy my blog.

4 Reasons it Makes Sense to Choose Rattan Outdoor Furniture

With so many parts of the country benefitting from great weather throughout so much of the year, it only makes sense to invest in outdoor furniture so you can make the most of those balmy temperatures and clear skies.

Of course, you'll find there are plenty of options when it comes to outdoor furniture, and that can make it hard to decide on the best material to meet your needs. While everything from wrought iron to timber outdoor furniture offers its own benefits, most homeowners are going to find that rattan makes the best choice.

Here are just four reasons why.

1. Exceptional Comfort

Comfort should always be one of your top concerns when choosing furniture—after all, it doesn't matter how good something looks or how well it holds up if it isn't also nice to sit on. Luckily enough, rattan furniture provides a level of comfort on par with indoor furniture. It's large enough to support deep cushions and big enough to provide space for you to sit back and relax. Whereas options like aluminium and wood can become uncomfortable after a while, rattan furniture should be comfortable enough to sit in all day.

2. Light Yet Stable

Rattan furniture can be made in the same size and shape as indoor furniture, and yet it still remains nice and light. This is ideal for outdoor furniture since you can easily move pieces around when you want to bring a chair into the shade or make room for a garden party. At the same time, the wide base and solid construction of rattan furniture mean it isn't going to be blown around very easily by the wind.

3. Durable and Easy to Maintain  

Outdoor furniture obviously needs to be more resilient than indoor furniture, and rattan furniture can cope with the elements extremely well. It isn't damaged by water and is resistant to damage from UV rays. And when the weather does look bad, you can simply pick up any cushions and move them inside in a flash. It's also extremely easy to care for rattan furniture. All it's going to need is an occasional wipe-down with warm soapy water.

4. Wide Range of Styles

Rattan outdoor furniture is available in a huge range of colours and styles, so you can use it to fit around almost any design aesthetic. Better yet, rattan can be used to make almost any type of outdoor furniture. This is ideal when you want to invest in a larger set since everything from sun loungers to tables and chairs can be found in matching styles.
