Rattan Garden Furniture Buying Advice from Wovenhill
There are a number of stages to go through when deciding on what Wovenhill rattan garden furniture is going to best suit you. With over 200 products to choose from, we can help steer you in the direction of something that suits your individual needs.
1. Choose your space
Presuming your Wovenhill rattan furniture will be situated in the garden, look at where you be positioning the furniture. Is it a patio or decking area? Will it be in view from the patio, or tucked at the bottom of the garden? Before you can go further in your decision, it is best to have an idea of the size of the area where the furniture will be going. And not just the area either - the shape is also crucial for deciding on the composition of furniture, or shape of dining set if that is what you choose. Also take into consideration how much sun that area receives, and whether that is a factor in your decision. Use our measuring guide

2. Practical considerations
Garden furniture needs to suit your lifestyle, especially if you have children. Synthetic rattan is great as it simply wipes down, it won't stain, and is completely weatherproof so requires no maintenance. Comfort is just as important, if not more so, than looks; who wants to sit on fabulous looking outdoor furniture if it feels like a torture device. Look closely at the dimensions of the furniture; this will indicate how right it will be for you and your family.
3. Style preferences
Whichever style of garden furniture you choose, it is important that it complements the style of your garden. If you have a country garden with a cottage feel, traditional furniture may look best, or if you have lots of decking then maybe go for something more contemporary. Style your garden the way you would style an interior room in your house - keep it cohesive. Matching your garden furniture pieces gives your garden a much more polished look than having mismatched furniture.
4. Choice of colour
Black, Brown, Grey or Natural? Wovenhill flat weave rattan furniture comes in four distictive colours. The 8mm thick rattan weave is the same quality, but the colour and feel varies. If you are going for a natural look, the natural and grey coloured synthetic rattan has an authentic rough feel to it. Alternatively, the black and brown have a beautiful smooth feel to them, and suits those with modern perferences. If you would prefer our half-round weave furniture, this is available in two beautiful shades smooth textured Pecan and traditional rough Ash.
