Can I leave the cushions on my Rattan Furniture when it rains?

27th May 2017

Leaving the cushions on most top grade synthetic rattan furniture during light rain will not be a problem. You can bat away any water droplets on the cushions after any shower. Although the cushions are water resistant they are not waterproof. Forecast bad weather should warn you bring your cushions inside. A dry, aerated space is best as this will help to prevent mould.

Before storing the cushions away for winter, It is recommend to give the covers a wash. You should always follow the manufacturers instructions. Ensure the covers are completely dry before placing back on the cushions. This helps to prevent mould, which can develop quickly, especially in a dry dark environment. We recommend buying a outdoor storage box, such as this one from Tesco Direct. These boxes are great as they are available in a range of colours to match your furniture. They also provide a dry area with good airflow for your cushions.
Cushions on lower grade rattan furniture sets however are unlikely to be water-resistant. Due to this they should not be left outside when the furniture is not in use.
