October 21, 2021 4 min read

In recent years, with the improvement of people's living standards, more and more people tend to decorate their homes with high-quality furniture. If you are considering buying new furniture or changing furniture for your home, I think rattan style furniture is a good choice for you. Although this style of furniture is simple in color and not as colorful as European style furniture, it also has its own unique style. With the rapid development of society, this kind of furniture with pastoral style has risen again, and it is deeply loved by people because of its elegance and exquisiteness. If it is placed in the living room, it will bring you a feeling of getting away from the hustle and bustle of the city and returning to the embrace of nature. Nowadays, it is no longer a patent for indoor furniture, and it can also be taken outdoors. Among all environmental protection materials, only rattan outdoor furniture can adapt to different climatic conditions. It can weatherproof and resist ultraviolet rays, so it can be put outdoors for a long time. This means that you don't have to worry about the summer sun or winter frost damaging it. Therefore, whether in appearance or practicality, rattan furniture can always meet your various needs and become the most eye-catching decoration in your home and outdoor garden.

Rattan Furniture

Rattan style furniture can be widely used indoors and outdoors. Because it is convenient to move, you can move your rattan sofa to your outdoor garden in summer, and then you can sit on the comfortable sofa to enjoy the sunshine and beautiful scenery. Generally speaking, the service life of this furniture is relatively long. If you can take some time to maintain it, its service life will be longer. But none of the furniture will remain intact all the time. Because of the wicker technology used in its production process, it will inevitably be damaged after you use it for a long time. In addition, the woven fabric may be scattered, which will make your beloved furniture look shabby. However, this does not mean that it needs to be replaced. If you plan to repair it, you will be surprised to find that the steps are relatively easy. All you need is a little patience and the right tools. In the following article, I will teach you how to repair your damaged rattan furniture. Don't worry, it's not difficult at all, and you can do it by yourself at home.

Preparation before repair
Please don't start repairing your damaged rattan furniture in a hurry. The preparation before repair is usually very important, because it can help you to carry out the repair smoothly. Before starting the repair, please make sure that all the materials you need are ready. You need to prepare some replacement wicker or rattan cane, wood glue, a big bowl, some scissors, olive oil, a clean cloth and warm water. If you want to make the repaired furniture look more beautiful, you can also use varnish. Secondly, it is also important to choose a suitable area. It is worth noting that you had better choose to repair your rattan style furniture outdoors on sunny days. In order to facilitate your next repair, you can also find a huge object. You can put the furniture on it to avoid back pain, so you don't have to bend over all the time.

Method of repair
Next, I will teach you how to repair damaged rattan furniture. First, gently wipe the surface of your furniture with a clean soft cloth to remove dirt. This step is mainly to prevent dirt from sticking in glue or varnish to leave an unsightly rough surface. Next, determine where your furniture needs to be repaired. Common damaged areas may be the legs or armrests of rattan garden table and chairs. They may scratch on walls or other surfaces. If you find scattered rattan cane, you can apply a little glue and plug them back into the braid for fixation. Some parts of your furniture may be too damaged to be simply glued back in place. If so, please cut off the damaged rattan neatly. Then soak the rattan to be replaced in warm water for more than 30 minutes. This will ensure that the replaced rattan is strong and flexible enough. Then weave them into damaged furniture, fix them with glue and dry them. After you have repaired the furniture, you can also apply a layer of varnish. This can not only fix the rattan cane better, but also add a protective layer to ensure that the repaired rattan furniture set has a longer service life.

Through reading this article, I hope you can master the method of repairing rattan furniture. This is not difficult for you, but it only takes you some time to repair it at home. In order to prolong the service life of your furniture, please learn to do so!
