Can I Leave the Cushions on Rattan Furniture Outside When It Rains?

Can I leave the cushions on rattan furniture out in the rain?

We are getting very close to spring and our blog is becoming increasingly centred around getting your garden ready! However, we all know how temperamental the British summertime can be. Although we like to fantasize about sitting outdoors with a cocktail every night from May to August, we're all aware that this isn't always the reality. There will be those gloriously hot days, of course, but there is also likely to be some showers too. When those rainy days take us by surprise, it pays to be prepared. Especially when it comes to cushions on rattan furniture.

Synthetic vs artificial, quality vs non-quality

If you buy your outdoor sets from us here at Lakeland Furniture, you are safe in the knowledge that our furniture is all of the highest quality. Our synthetic rattan furniture is weatherproof and is very durable. Likewise, the cushions that come included with our garden furniture sets are also weatherproof! This means you don't have to panic about what to do with the cushions on rattan furniture if there's a slight drizzle. However, we do recommend that in the eventuality of extreme weather or heavy rain, you bring your cushions inside. By that same token, it's probably a good idea to store away your furniture too. Although we make very high-quality furniture, there is no point taking risks when it comes to bad weather that could potentially damage your beloved garden sets.


In a nutshell...

However, in minor cases such as light showers, spilt drinks or splashes from your paddling pool, your cushions will be absolutely fine! Bear in mind that purchasing cheap and low-quality garden furniture will only make your life more difficult when it comes to bad weather. Poorly made cushions or furniture are even less likely to withstand heavy downpours. It's important to consider this when choosing your furniture this summer.
