31st May 2017

It can be difficult to pick between Natural VS Synthetic Garden Sets. Rattan garden sets look really elegant, stylish and sophisticated. They are available in a host of designs and styling options. You can also choose from the natural and synthetic rattan garden sets which are available today.
However , you might wonder about the exact difference between the two and which one will be best suited for yourself. The main difference of the sets its the materials they are made from. Natural rattan garden sets use natural rattan. Whilst synthetic rattan garden sets use synthetic materials like plastic and resin.
We have made a detailed comparison of both the natural and synthetic rattan garden sets. This will surely help you choose the right rattan set for your garden.

Natural VS Synthetic Garden Sets: Styling and design:

Both the natural and synthetic rattan garden sets are available in a variety of style. Varients in designs and shapes make both look equally appealing. Hence, both these garden sets will impart a classy and sophisticated look to your garden patio. However, many buyers prefer natural one synthetic. They feel that natural rattan has a special aesthetic appeal. The weaving and the quality of fiber used to make the sets also add to their overall appeal.

Natural VS Synthetic Garden Sets: Durability

Natural rattan is very strong and durable but it cannot stand all weather conditions. Due to this, natural rattan furniture is not suited for the outdoors. They last for a longer time if kept indoors and cared for properly.
Synthetic rattan garden sets on the other hand are mostly made of plastic. This makes most sets resistant to all weather conditions. The synthetic rattan sets are quite strong and durable too. With proper care, these sets last a very long time even if kept outdoors.
Above all, the durability of your rattan garden set will depend on the quality of fibre used. We provide all our buyers with the best quality natural and synthetic rattan garden furniture.
