Top Tips:


Tip 1 -Many do not realize that the beautiful layout they see in the ads for wicker furniture often does not include the padding or cushions.


Tip 2 -Maintaining rattan and wicker deck furniture is relatively easy.


Tip 3 - Wicker furniture is available in natural, stained or painted surfaces. Wicker dining furniture lends subtle and natural charm to the dining space. Most outdoor organic wicker furniture is painted at the factory, using a multiple dipping process to maintain its depth of colour.


Tip 4 - Synthetic woven furniture usually has aluminium frames for increased strength and durability. Wicker furniture has already stood the test of time and will probably be around a long time. Wicker sun room furniture can be divided into outdoor & porch furniture, semi-outdoor furniture, and indoor furniture


Tip 5 - Today's wicker is made of a number of materials. There are people who prefer wicker furniture, especially when they are considering how to accentuate their patio, or simply add a "country feel" to their home.


Tip 6 - As with many types of outdoor furniture. Genuine wicker can be used and can be an attractive material for chairs in particular., but remember it is damaged by exposure to moisture & excessive sunlight.


Synthetic Wicker can work well


There are however materials with the look and appeal of wicker., but are actually synthetic wicker, which may be more appropriate for constant outside use. . Synthetic wicker is often used on aluminium to provide sturdiness yet a wicker appearance.


Don't forget to budget for covers for your new furniture. Wicker should be kept dry, so if wicker is placed in an uncovered area, it should be brought inside when it rains or completely covered.


Molded PVC Furniture


Molded PVC furniture is a popular choice, in colors that harmonize with the natural surroundings. There is plenty of choice available to buy and can be found in several styles and designs that are priced to suit any budget.
