Looking after your rattan furniture in winter
Rattan garden furniture is an investment, and one you want to keep enjoying for years to come, so you need to make sure you’re giving it the TLC it deserves this winter. Naturally, when the weather starts to turn colder and the nights draw in, you probably aren’t going to be using your rattan furniture as much (although, hello winter garden parties). So, you’ll have to take a little extra care to keep it looking gorgeous all year round.
Can you leave rattan furniture outside in winter?
Our rattan furniture is crafted from high-quality, UV-resistant, and weatherproof rattan, which is perfect for handling the ever-changing British weather. Because it’s such good quality, you can leave your luxury rattan furniture outside in winter, but it’s worth noting that keeping it covered during winter – either by storing it in a garden shed, or by using covers that go over the furniture – it’ll keep it looking as good as new.
If you’ve got a set of rattan dining chairs, make sure they’re clean and dry before stacking them up and covering them, to keep them protected in case it gets windy outside.
The only bit you’ll need to keep inside are the cushions that come with your rattan furniture. They can handle a little rainfall but not a whole winter out in the elements so remember to bring them indoors.
How do you clean rattan furniture?
Okay, so it’s not the most glamorous job, but like anything that’s left outdoors all year round, your rattan furniture will need a clean every now and then. Give it a quick once-over with a vacuum or study brush to get rid of any dirt or debris – if there’s any stubborn bits in the weave, a toothbrush should do the job. Then, grab a bowl filled with warm, soapy water and wipe it down thoroughly but gently with a soft cloth. And there you have it – looking beautiful!
How long does rattan furniture last?
High quality rattan furniture, like Luxury Rattan’s range, lasts for years and years, even if it’s left outside all winter – but to keep it at its best, just make sure you’re taking proper care of it throughout the year. That way, it’ll carry on being the stunning centrepiece of your garden for longer – and all of the garden parties, barbecues and fun that comes with it.
