Rattan furniture is stylish, comfortable and practical, perfect for the warm season when you spend plenty of time in your garden. However, what happens with this furniture when autumn comes and rainfalls become the daily norm? Can you leave your rattan furniture outside?
Then read along…
Yes, you can leave your rattan furniture outside even if it rains. The materials can withstand the moisture. That said, the furniture needs to be of good quality materials, otherwise, the weather will destroy it.
Let’s elaborate on that.
What features does the highest quality rattan furniture have that separate it from the lower end competitors?
Generally, high-quality rattan furniture requires almost no maintenance and shows little wear and tear over the years. If you are not sure whether your rattan furniture is high or regular quality, just lift it up. If it’s surprisingly lightweight, its frame is likely made of aluminium. If you still have the packaging somewhere, check to make sure.
In theory, with all said so far, high-end rattan furniture can safely be left outside in rain and snow and should sustain almost no damage. Still, some extra protective measures won’t hurt to prolong its life. And if you have found that your furniture frames are made of steel and not aluminium, then definitely follow these tips.
If you are not sure what kind of rattan furniture you have in terms of quality, it’s best to keep it in storage over the winter. And if you know for sure that the furniture you have is of lesser quality, then storage space is highly recommended.
