Rattan Furniture: The Winner of Garden Furniture

July 21, 2021 2 min read

When it comes to the choice of garden furniture, you may need to consider many factors. In order to achieve a balance between practicality and beauty, the choice of materials for garden furniture is very important. Garden furniture has many different materials, each with its own distinct characteristics. Rattan garden furniture and metal garden furniture are the two materials that people most often hesitate to, so today we specifically listed the characteristics of furniture that weighed these two materials to help you make a wise decision for your garden.

INTRODUCTION
Rattan & Rattan garden furniture: Rattan is a natural woven material that is native to tropical areas in Australia, Asia and Africa. However, most of the rattans currently used in rattan furniture sets are synthetic rattans, and the best quality is PE rattan, because natural rattans will deteriorate due to excessive humidity and sunlight. The exquisite weaving design of rattan is something that cannot be produced by a machine, which makes rattan effect garden furniture highly attractive.
Aluminium & Metal garden furniture: Aluminum is a kind of metal, it is durable and corrosion-resistant, so many manufacturers often use it in the production of garden furniture, and different metals may also produce different quality garden furniture.

PROS & CONS
Rattan garden furniture set: Synthetic rattan is weatherproof and UV resistant and can withstand all weather, so you can put your rattan garden tables and chairs outdoors all year round without any worries. This also makes rattan furniture durable and thus lasts longer. Moreover, the maintenance cost of rattan effect furniture is also very low, regular simple cleaning is enough to keep your rattan furniture set always beautiful. In addition, compared to wooden furniture, rattan outdoor furniture often much lighter, which makes it can be easily moved when needed. It must be admitted that in order to ensure the quality of rattan furniture, its price may be slightly higher than other furniture, but this seems to have become reasonable after showing all the above advantages.
Metal garden furniture set: Through a special protective coating, metal garden furniture can have a certain resistance to outdoor weather. Otherwise, it may be too light and thus at risk in high winds, or it may become hot in the sun, creating the risk of burns on your skin. But the special powder coating also means that you may have to pay extra for this.

STYLE & APPLICATION
Aluminum is a kind of metal, so metal garden furniture also has an industrial atmosphere, which is more suitable for some fashionable and modern outdoor environments. In comparison, the style of rattan garden furniture will be more varied, and the application will be more extensive. Most rattan furniture sets are in neutral tones, which can coordinate a variety of outdoor environments and styles well. The chic rattan sofa set is very fashionable, while the natural woven rattan style furniture creates a classic and elegant style, providing more possibilities for your garden design and choice.

All in all, although metal garden furniture is also a popular choice, after weighing the above pros and cons, rattan outdoor furniture, which is light, chic and low-maintenance, is obviously better in this comparison. Therefore, we recommend that you invest in a more cost-effective rattan furniture set.
