Rattan furniture for the home

Although many people associate rattan with garden furniture, it actually makes stylish and practical indoor furniture too. Rattan furniture can be used in all sorts of rooms from your living room, to your dining room or even conservatory. The great thing about rattan is that it fits in with both traditional and contemporary decors.

When shopping for rattan furniture, you will find that it comes in a wide range of colours. Unless you are creating a specific look, we highly recommend that you choose a neutral shade. If after a couple of years, you fancy a change, you can simply give it a lick of paint to give it a brand new look. Rattan furniture is often painted white to give it a rustic-chic finish, which goes well in country-style kitchens and vintage-inspired bedrooms. There are many tutorials available online to help you paint your rattan furniture. The most popular method involves spray painting.

Rattan furniture for the garden

Want to add a touch of luxury to your garden? The easiest way is to invest in rattan garden furniture. There are many different types of rattan garden furniture available including dining sets, coffee tables, loungers and pods. Whether you choose to purchase matching sets or combine new rattan furniture with existing pieces made from other materials, you are sure to be pleased with the finished look.

Many people choose rattan furniture for their gardens as it blends in well with the natural surroundings. Synthetic rattan is often preferred as it can withstand all weather conditions. Unlike other materials it will not rust, grow mould or crack. Rattan furniture is suitable for gardens of all styles and sizes.

Benefits of choosing rattan furniture

We have already discussed many of the benefits of choosing rattan furniture, but here is a quick reminder. Rattan furniture is one of the most affordable types of furniture. Whilst it may be budget-friendly, it has a luxury aesthetic that makes it look more expensive than it actually is. Simply style it up with cushions, throws and blankets and it will look like it has stepped straight off the page of a luxury homeware magazine.

Rattan furniture is practical, durable and versatile. It can be used both indoors and outdoors, making it perfect for all year round use. You will also find that rattan furniture is incredibly durable and will last years and years, with little maintenance. If you want to keep your rattan furniture looking as good as the day you purchased it, we highly recommend giving it a wipe down with a soft cloth dipped in soapy water, every couple of weeks.


If you are looking to invest in high quality furniture for your home and garden, make rattan furniture your number one choice. Not only is it affordable, but it is also stylish, practical and long-lasting. Unlike other furniture types, rattan is extremely versatile and will compliment all types of décor. You can even paint it to give it a brand new look. With so many benefits it is not surprising that rattan furniture is so popular with homeowners.
