How to care for rattan garden furniture
There are two main types of rattan, the natural wooden cane of the polyethylene blend known as polyrattan.
Polyrattan is best for longevity – it’s waterproof, UV-resistant (it won’t fade in the sun) and rust-resistant, making it a great alternative to wooden or metal garden furniture. It can stay outside come rain or shine.
The natural wooden rattan is great for outdoor use too, however, you’ll need to make sure it’s covered and/or stored inside when wetter weather is forecast. This’ll help keep it dry and make sure it remains as durable as possible.
Do I need a cover for my rattan furniture?
While polyrattan is designed to stand the elements, it is advisable to still use a cover over your rattan furniture to keep it in tip-top condition and stop your furniture from attracting mould or mildew in the winter months.
Where possible, natural rattan should be taken indoors in the wet seasons or stored under a shelter and covered to help it last as long as possible.
Before buying, make sure to make note of your furniture measurements so your cover will fit perfectly!
