But seriously, how do you make a choice when there is natural rattan, synthetic wicker and then synthetic look wicker - so much choice and the truth is everyone simply wants to sell you something. We're different, a family company that come from the Garden Lounge Set world, let us give you some truths to help you decide:
Choose the Right Frame
Please take note that the frame material of the rattan furniture has a relation to its life expectancy and price. Also, you can find pieces of rattan furniture with one of two frame materials: aluminum or steel.
Aluminum frames tend to be more expensive than steel structures. But, aluminum is more resistant to rust than steel.
Rattan furniture with steel frames can be ideal for people who want to bring additional comfort to their gardens while following a strict budget. But, you may need to remove the rust off of the steel structures at least once every couple of years.
On the other hand, you can have better peace of mind with rattan garden furniture equipped with aluminum frames.
Aluminum is a weatherproof material, so it can brave cold and damp conditions without rusting. Still, if you decide to buy outdoor furniture with aluminum frames, be prepared to pay for the expensive price tags.
How important is price?
Very important and a very grey area. You should gauge the amount based on what you can afford in comparison to how much time you spend or enjoy being in the garden. If you use your garden only when the sun shines, then somethineg that costs under £300 but lasts you five years would be a great investment. Alternatively, if you are lucky enough to have a conservatory and outdoor living area then just go with your gut and perhaps choose something you can use indoor during the winter
A great way to benchmark prices on the high street is to cross check that with similar items on websites like our and always remember that with any online purchase you are protected by the distant selling law which means you can return anything you've purchased without reason within 7 days and the retailer even has to come and collect it from your house for free!
How much space do I have?
If you've only got a small garden, you need to think about how much space you're prepared to spend on furniture. If you have a modest garden and only use it in the summer, don't be afraid to take up plenty of the available space so that it becomes functional, such as with a dining set. A small functional garden is better than a large empty one.
If you have the space and a decent budget, then why not buy a dining set and a lounge set to really enjoy the space. You can then wine and dine guests and laze on the lounge set for a post dinner critique. Our Garden Lounge Set will become the focal point of your garden or patio. It is ideal for al fresco dining or for simply relaxing and enjoying the weather. Click https://www.insharefurniture.com/product/garden-set/ to learn more information
