Rattan Outdoor Furniture VS Aluminum Garden Furniture

October 29, 2021 4 min read

Summer must be the time when your outdoor garden is used most frequently. There is plenty of sunshine and beautiful scenery in summer, so it's time for you to go outdoors and get some fresh air. If you already have a beautiful outdoor garden or patio, maybe you can put a rattan corner sofa in your garden or patio. You can sit leisurely on your outdoor sofa in the warm summer afternoon and read books or newspapers. You can also invite a few close friends to hold a summer carnival party in your garden. Therefore, having good outdoor garden furniture can not only add a touch of beautiful colors to your garden, but also bring you unlimited fun and enjoyment in summer.

Outdoor furniture is one of the most important furniture used frequently in every family. In recent years, with the continuous improvement of people's living standards, more and more people have begun to pay attention to and tend to buy outdoor furniture set with beautiful appearance and high quality. According to statistics in recent years, rattan outdoor furniture and aluminum outdoor furniture are the two best-selling outdoor garden furniture types in the British furniture market. These two kinds of furniture have won the favor of many people because of their exquisite workmanship and superior quality. If you have an idea of changing your outdoor furniture or buying new outdoor furniture recently, you may wish to consider buying from these two kinds of furniture. But if you don't know these two kinds of furniture well, it may be difficult for you to make a choice. So, which of these two kinds of furniture is more suitable for your garden? From my point of view, I think rattan garden furniture is more suitable for your garden than aluminum garden furniture. In the following article, I will divide into two parts to introduce these two types of garden furniture in detail. After reading this article, I hope you can clearly understand these two types of furniture and know why rattan style furniture is more suitable for your garden.

Rattan garden furniture
First, we need to know what it is. As its name implies, it is woven from hard rattan cane. Rattan cane can be generally divided into two types, one is natural rattan, and the other is synthetic rattan. Natural rattan has no special treatment on its surfaceand it is easy to rot in the humid climate of Britain, so it is generally not used to make outdoor furniture. On the contrary, synthetic rattan is the best material for making outdoorfurniture, which is widely used in British furniture market at present.

Why is rattan outdoor furniture made of synthetic rattan more suitable for your garden? The reasons are as follows. First of all, this PE synthetic rattan is very suitable for the changeable weather in Britain. It can be placed outdoors all year round, and will not melt or freeze when it is placed in high temperature in summer or cold temperature in winter. What's more, it also has the characteristics of weatherproof and ultraviolet resistance so that it will not be easily damaged. High quality synthetic rattan outdoor furniture is made of powder coated aluminum frame, so you can safely leave your rattan furniture in your outdoor garden. Secondly, this type of furniture is durable and the maintenance cost is very low, so you don't need to worry about it too much. Finally, this furniture is easy to clean. Even if it is left outdoors for a long time, there is not much dust on its surface. Therefore, it only takes you a little time to clean it thoroughly.

Aluminum garden furniture
I believe aluminum garden furniture is no stranger to many people. When it comes to this type of furniture, most people will think of aluminum garden chairs with exquisite carvings and beautiful shapes. Aluminum is a strong and lightweight material, and furniture made of aluminum is easy to move. It is more modern than rattan garden furniture, and has incredible weatherproof performance. Aluminum garden furniture has many advantages, so it is also a good choice for outdoor furniture.

However, this type of furniture also has some inevitable shortcomings. First, like all metals, aluminum has a breaking point. This means that if you use it frequently or leave heavy things on it for a long time, your aluminum furniture will bend and cannot be repaired. Secondly, not all aluminum outdoor furniture is weatherproof. You must use powder coated aluminum to achieve this function, but it will cost you more. Last but not least, aluminum garden furniture will absorb heat and become very hot in summer. You can't sit on it unless you have a thick cushion. But for warm summer, who doesn't want to sit on outdoor garden furniture to enjoy the sunshine? But if you put aluminum garden furniture in your garden, you will lose this pleasure.

Aluminum Garden Furniture

By reading this article, I believe you have a better understanding of these two kinds of furniture. Compared with aluminum garden furniture, rattan garden furniture is more suitable for your garden. It has some advantages that aluminum garden furniture lacks. Please use this type of furniture to decorate your garden and enjoy the summer fun!
