Why We Love Rattan Furniture for the Garden

6th April 2018

Why rattan furniture is a must-have for the garden

Now that 'The Beast from the East' is finally over and done with (fingers crossed), it's time to start getting excited about summer. Spring is definitely in the air and after that long Easter weekend, we're definitely ready for some relaxing days in the sun. And what better way to have a holiday-ready back garden? Fill it with rattan furniture. It's the ultimate solution to having a vacation on your front doorstep. Okay, we get it. Investing in rattan furniture is not going to miraculously make you feel like you're abroad. However, there are plenty of reasons that this glorious furniture belongs in your garden this summer.

Reasons that we love rattan furniture

First things first, let's just say that you might think we're a little biased. We sell rattan furniture so of course, we're going to love it. However, rattan is quickly becoming one of the most popular types of garden furniture for those in the UK. And we totally understand why. So, without further ado, here are our top reasons for spicing up your garden with some beautiful new rattan...

1.  It's super lightweight and portable

If you're going to have any furniture in your garden, it makes sense to choose rattan. Rattan furniture is the most lightweight choice out there. You'll never have to worry about moving your furniture around the garden or pulling it inside the garage for storage. It is really easy to manoeuvre and doesn't require much strength to shuffle it around. This is going to be handy when organising BBQs and garden parties where your garden will be overrun by guests! You can really customise sets of rattan furniture to suit your event's needs.

2. It's highly durable and strong

Whilst you're doing all that moving around to prepare for your party, it's unlikely you'll damage rattan furniture. Unlike wooden furniture which is heavy, hard to move and easily damaged, rattan is the perfect combination of lightweight and durable. You can also leave it outside for the whole summer; artificial rattan is weatherproof!

3. It looks really stylish

These days, rattan furniture is actually one of the most stylish kinds of garden furniture you can buy. Once upon a time, it was considered old-fashioned and people were opting for plastic furniture. However, plastic furniture is no longer seen as the sought-after accessory for the modern garden. The great thing about modern rattan furniture is that it looks really expensive and elegant, even if you are buying the cheaper synthetic version. Our rattan garden sets are available in three shades: black, brown or grey. You can really customise the furniture to your personal style.

4. It blends into the outdoors

No-one likes garish furniture, especially when it comes to the garden. The great thing about rattan is it is a completely natural material. Yes, you are likely to be purchasing artificial rattan, especially if you shop with us. However, good quality artificial rattan looks just as good as the real stuff and blends perfectly into a naturual, outdoors environment.
