Both rattan and wicker furniture is a less expensive alternative to hardwood, if you want to have furniture that is made from natural sources. These types of patio furniture don`t require a lot of maintenance and can be used in or outdoors all year long. It`s also possible to change the outlook of Wicker or Rattan furniture by giving the furniture a new coat of color. So, if you`re inclined to change the decor of your patio frequently without buying new patio furniture every time, then wicker or rattan furniture would be the best choice for you.
Most shops selling furniture for patios usually categorize the furniture pieces to help customers pick the best furniture for their patios. Some of the categories include: Modern, Classic, Contemporary, Luxury, Functional and Traditional. There are also some shops which categorize the furniture depending on certain themes. Customers who are budget conscious can also find some furniture divided depending on the prize range. The most common patio furniture includes dining sets (tables and chairs), benches, chaise lounges, settees and rocking chairs. Others are bar stools, picnic tables, porch swings and hammocks. There are also several accessories you can add to make your patio more relaxing and comfortable. Examples are cushions, throw pillows, outdoor lightings and storage deck boxes.
Wooden patio furniture is the most popular. Many varieties of wood are used for making outdoor furniture and some are more durable than others. This means that outdoor furniture made from the less durable varieties will need regular attention like painting, staining or oiling. With some woods, e.g. pine, this maintenance may be as regular as every year. The more durable timbers are jarrah and teak and usually a quick oil or stain every 2 to 3 years is ample. Sometimes, wicker furniture is painted. However, it does not need a great deal of attention.
Cleaning Wicker Sets: Wicker sets can be made of true rattan or synthetic rattan. Often, the wicker is sealed with some sort of finish to protect the material. Using a mild soap with warm water and gentle scrub brush or sponge, clean the surface of your furniture. Allow the furniture to air dry completely, or use a towel to dry. Address any areas that need repair or repainting while the set is clean and dry. Cleaning Metal Sets: Most metal sets are sealed with a powder coat finish to ensure a longer life.Using a mild soap with warm water and gentle scrub brush or sponge, clean the surface of your furniture.

When the warm summer months are coming to a close and you start to see the leaves turn and drift to the ground, it is time to start preparing your patio furniture for winter storage. While it is always difficult to close up that umbrella and acknowledge that it is your last dinner on the patio for the season, a little planning can make sure you will be able to enjoy your patio furniture set for many years to come.
