Wicker furniture comes in many forms and can include natural rattan, synthetic wicker, and synthetic looking wicker. Therefore before investing in an expensive wicker furniture set, here are some questions that you need to get answered.

Should I go for natural or synthetic? – Natural wicker garden furniture can look more natural in a garden setting, but will not be as durable as the synthetic wicker variety. Synthetic wicker can also be divided into the hand-woven synthetic wicker variety and the synthetic wicker that is made to look like it is woven. The latter will not snap or unravel and therefore will last you between 3-5 years without much maintenance.

What will work best in my garden? – You will have to look at your current furniture style as well as your garden layout. If you have a modern deck, for example, a modern set of wicker lounge furniture will work best. If on the other hand, you want to use your outdoor space for dining, you can look at investing in a wicker dining set.

What color wicker should I choose? – You should look at choosing neutral shades of wicker furniture in white, black, natural or beige. Add color by adding decorative cushions and throw pillows. Remember to invest in an extra set of wicker replacement cushions to make sure you have a clean, festive set for special occasions. Lloyd and Flanders replacement cushions are a good place to buy pre-made replacement cushions of good quality.
