16th January 2018

The ultimate guide to buying rattan garden furniture

Okay, we know. It's not even February yet. But there's no such thing as being prepared! With a shipment of rattan garden furniture set for mid-March so we want to make sure you're ready to buy. Buying garden furniture is a big investment and not one that should be taken lightly, so make sure you take note of this blog post. We'll run you through all the most important factors to take into consideration before making that big purchase!

Our range of garden furniture

We have a huge range of outdoor furniture and accessories, including marquees and parasols to keep you shaded from that summer sun. However, today we're just going to talk about our rattan sets - and there's plenty to discuss! Whether you're after a huge sofa set or a modest dining table, we'll have something to suit your needs. Keep reading to find the perfect rattan set for your garden.

Choosing the right set for you

First of all, think about the space you currently have and what you need to fill it. Do you have a huge garden that could home a fabulous, sprawling set with all the works? Or perhaps you have a small decking area that would benefit from a neat little dining set? If you've got a lot of unused space then it's definitely worth considering some of our larger sofa sets as they can look really luxurious. However, bear in mind that if you do have a smaller area, all of our sets are modular so you can rearrange them in which shape or structure suits you!

Dining sets

Do you eat outdoors a lot and regularly host BBQs as soon as the sun pokes its head out? Consider your al fresco dreams realised. Our rattan dining sets are the ultimate solution to anyone who enjoys dining in the sun. Is your household home to a small family or just you and your partner? If so, you'll probably love our Bilbao dining set with 4 chairs included. Check it out here:

The great thing about this set is it can fit in pretty much any garden or yard space. It looks especially great on a decking like in the picture above. The glass-top table is tempered safety glass to prevent shattering in case of any accidents! You'll also get cushions for each chair included with the set so you can't complain about comfort. This set really has it all for the small family or group of friends - when it's priced at £289.99 you can't really go wrong.

Need something bigger?

Maybe you're looking for something a little on the larger side? If you've got a large family or regularly entertain large groups, you'll perhaps prefer our Granada set which you can see in the image below:

This amazing set can seat up to ten people so you'll never have to worry about bringing down a spare chair from the office for someone to perch on! Can't you just imagine it now? The spring sun is beginning to break through the clouds. A cold bottle of prosecco has just been opened and all your nearest and dearest are gathered around the table. There's plenty of fresh food on offer and everyone has somewhere to sit! That's what we call bliss if you're asking us. And for a reduced price of £899.99, this entire bliss-inducing set can be yours.

There are a couple of other dining sets for you to check out if these two haven't ticked your boxes:

Corner sofa sets

So, maybe a more formal setting isn't really your thing. If you prefer to kick back with a chilled glass of wine and soak up the sun with a nice playlist in the background... you'll be a big fan of our informal sofa sets. For the smaller garden, the Cadiz garden set is the perfect solution. It seats up to four people so it's perfect for small get-togethers or afternoon chillout sessions. The Cadiz is currently on sale at £349.99 so snap up this set in time for the spring sun! It's also suitable for a conservatory if that's your thing. Check it out in the image here:

For those with a bigger family or those who like to spread out, we'd recommend a larger sofa set like the Torino. This set seats six people and is ultra comfortable. It's perhaps not suitable if you've not got much room but if you've got a sprawling garden then this could be everything you've ever dreamed of. With a mixture of armchairs and sofas, you can customise this set to be whatever you want - perfect for watching the sunset on a summer evening with friends! The Torino is currently priced at £899.99 so be sure to check it out.

If these two sets haven't tickled your fancy, we've got plenty of other options for you to browse through:

Considering colour

It's worth noting that all of our rattan garden furniture sets come in three separate colour options: brown, grey and black. Of course, brown is the most traditional and popular colour of rattan furniture. However, don't let this sway you. Black and grey can offer a real contemporary alternative and are sure to have your friends asking, "Where did you get your garden furniture from?!" You heard it here first. That said, if you're looking for something more typical and already have a brown colour scheme in the garden then perhaps the brown furniture is the best option for you.
