Tips to Know Before Buying Outdoor Rattan and Teak Furniture

  • This is the time of year when Minnesotans are itching to spend time outside and we’re preparing our outdoor spaces for warm weather entertaining. Be it the patio, deck, or porch, outdoor furniture is an extension of our home and allows us to enjoy time outdoors. Beautiful and comfortable places to dine and relax are at the top of my wish list and I don’t think I’m alone. Teak furniture for many reasons has long been on many wish lists for outdoor Plastic Rattan Set and here are some tips to know before you plan your teak furniture layout.

    Care and maintenance.

    Neither rattan or teak requires any special care and maintenance. Synthetic rattan is specially designed to resist the harsh outdoor conditions, while teak is naturally resistant to the outdoor elements. As a result, occasional cleaning is all that is required to keep rattan and teak garden furniture looking beautiful.

    Synthetic rattan is engineered to withstand the effect of the harmful UV light and does not fade if exposed to direct sunlight. Teak, on the other hand, eventually changes colour. This is a result of the so-called weathering effect which is in the first place caused by the exposure to UV light. This colour change is completely normal and does not have any effect on the wood's strength or durability. However, you can prevent teak from turning silvery grey by treating it periodically with teak sealant. If you discontinue treatment with teak sealant, your furniture will change into silvery grey colour. This, however, is not the case with teak oil which destroys the natural protective oils and makes the wood unable to withstand the outdoor conditions on its own. Once you start treating your furniture with teak oil, you must continue. We therefore strongly advise against using teak oil to preserve the "new" teak colour.

    Both rattan and teak garden furniture are safe to leave outdoors regardless of the weather conditions and the season of the year. Outside garden season, however, it is a good idea to protect the furniture from dust, dirt and bird droppings with a garden furniture cover because unfortunately, neither rattan or teak is resistant to dirt.


    Beside the ability to resist harsh weather conditions, being able to remain undamaged despite everyday wear and tear is also a vital factor making the best outdoor furniture. We all need a kind of material that is enough to support

    heavy use.

    In this case, wood might be slightly superior to synthetic rattan outdoor furniture. There are various types of hard wood such as teak, oak, maple, etc, which are well-known for their strength. These kinds of wood will be ideal if what you need is such a strong furniture.

    Nonetheless, synthetic rattan is also a good idea for both home and commercial use in comparision to any other types of materials.

    In conclusion, while wood is stronger, outdoor synthetic rattan furniture performs better in terms of weather resistance. Cost differences are variable and usually, wicker is cheapler than wood. Each type of material has different styles to go for and the choice is up to you!
