Wicker furniture, along with wicker resin furniture and rattan furniture, has long been considered one of the best options for beautiful, long-lasting outdoor furniture. Wicker chairs, couches, and tables provide a beautiful, elegant alternative to wood, plastic, or metal patio furniture. While wicker stands up well to the elements, some of your wicker furniture accessories may not last as long as the furniture itself. You may find that you need replacement cushions for your wicker furniture, as the fabric that is used in the cushions may show signs of fading, fraying, or other wear and tear. If that is the case, consider purchasing your replacement cushions from an online retailer like Wicker Paradise.
If, instead, you are planning to replace your wicker furniture with furniture made from a more long-lasting substance, consider a wicker-like material like resin wicker. While wicker is durable and generally withstands the elements well, some shoppers dislike the fact that natural materials like wicker eventually disintegrate, simply by its nature. Resin wicker looks just like wicker, but is made from resin and will not deteriorate over time in the same way that wicker will.
Like natural materials, but not the look of wicker? Don’t worry — retailers like Wicker Paradise offer furniture made from a wide variety of natural materials. If you love the woven look but not the texture of wicker, consider wicker rattan furniture instead. Made from a different material, rattan furniture gives you a similar natural outdoor look.
Many people are finding they like the look of a rattan dining room. You can arrange it so that it will suit the occasion, whether you need something casual or something formal. You can choose between a dark wood color or a light wood color. They come with a wide range of cushion materials and designs. A glass top on the table can add a bit of elegance. If you are going for a more casual feel, add in whimsical decorations or accessories reminiscent of a tiki bar.
Rattan also makes very nice sunroom furniture. With light, bright colored cushions and live plants around the room it will be a true sunny room. It will become a great place for entertaining or a quiet family evening together. Make sure you keep it a non-television room. A sound system would be fine; something for a bit of background music while entertaining. It very well might become mom’s favorite room in the house. A game table in part of the room would bring more use to it from the kids.
If you are thinking about new patio furniture, resin wicker furniture is a good choice. It is not affected by the weather like other outdoor furniture can be. You can use it with or without cushions and it easily cleans up. It will add a touch of class to your patio, but not be so stuffy no one will want to sit out there. Pick your color and enjoy a nice glass of iced teas.
A rattan sofa can become the centerpiece of your living room. It is not necessary to have a completely matched set of furniture in your living room to make it look good. Having one piece that is different, yet fits the color scheme, allows you to have a room that is more your style and tastes that those of whoever put together the sets in the furniture store. Find the sofa the fits in with your colors. Decide on the material you want and go from there.
You may be surprised at how much you like the new sofa and decide to use more wicker furniture in the room, or in other rooms. Many people are finding that wicker goes well in almost any situation or atmosphere. It is no longer relegated to the screened in patio. Because it can be painted, wicker is showing up in every room of the house. It may be a small piece you do not notice until you look right at it, or it could be the big piece that everyone sees first thing.
There are many different colors and designs when it comes to rattan wicker furniture. You can use it in a formal room, or in a room that is casual. Find the right color and design of the wood pieces and then get the cushions in a pattern that fits in with the rest of the room. You may even just have rattan accents on different pieces to bring the room all together.
