Are you giving your backyard an update? Pairing a pergola with rattan Leisure Chair furniture is a great way to create an inviting space that is both stylish, trendy, and practical. There are many benefits that come with buying rattan furniture that you may not know about. Keep reading to find out why this combo is so amazing. Longevity We did say these points would be in no form of hierarchy but it's hard not to see this as one of the most important reasons to invest in synthetic rattan. Artificially produced rattan furniture has a much longer lifespan than its authentic counterpart. In our more in-depth blog post, we mentioned that synthetic garden furniture could last anywhere between 10 and 20 years. Weatherproof properties Okay, so this is kind of combining two points into one. But why does it last so much longer? Simply, because it's crafted to be UV resistant and waterproof which real rattan doesn't tend to be. Its weatherproof properties mean that it's going to be much more hardy when left outside during the spring and summer months. (That doesn't mean you shouldn't look after it, however!) Strength Now, this next point may come as a surprise to some of you but synthetic rattan is a lot stronger than the real version. This is due to the fact that it is man-made and so doesn't contain those natural fibres that can sometimes be the downfall of authentic rattan. This is another reason that synthetic furniture will last much longer as it is less prone to damage! Lightweight That being said, synthetic rattan furniture is a lot more lightweight than real rattan. You will find it very easy to move it around if you fancy rearranging your garden or the format of your furniture. (Did you know all of our rattan garden furniture sets are completely modular? This means you can customise the layout so your specific preference.) Cheaper to buy Of course, it's a no-brainer that an artificial version of a material can be cheaper. This is the same across any industry from wood to fur. However, this can really make a difference to families who might not have the budget for real rattan but would love to achieve that beautiful look in their own garden. Easy to maintain Rattan is easy to maintain, especially when compared to other wood furniture currently in the market. You don't need any fancy wood cleaner to ensure that your rattan furniture stays clean. Simply use a soft washcloth and regular dishwashing soap to clean as needed. You should also use a small brush to get at the little nooks and crannies that are difficult to clean with your washcloth.
