When it comes to rattan, there are two types that may be used to manufacture furniture, namely natural and synthetic rattan. Natural rattan is made by weaving materials such as bamboo, banana leaves and stems of rattan together, and synthetic rattan is made with man-made materials. Given these differences, they each have differing properties and purposes – while natural rattan furniture is only suitable for indoors, synthetic rattan furniture is weatherproof and can hence be used both indoors and outdoors.
Guide To Buying Rattan Furniture
With so many furniture options in the market, choosing the perfect ones to achieve your dream home may get daunting. That is why we have pieced together 3 factors that may help you to narrow down your furniture choices to aid your decision.
Other than knowing whether your space is indoors or outdoors, you should consider the colour scheme of your space as well. Take a look at the colour scheme of your outdoor space – are there mostly warm or cool colours? Warm colours refer to shades of red such as orange, yellow and brown, while cool colours are shades of blue such as green, purple and grey. Having a grasp of the type of colours in your space will help you when choosing the colour of your furniture. You can decide if you want your furniture’s colours to go along with the general theme and complement the space or you can choose to bring in some juxtaposition to make the colours pop. Colours also help to bring about some sort of vibe and you may use that to your advantage as warm colours generally give a bubbly vibe, while cool colours give a relaxing feel.
Next, the comfort of your furniture is important too, since you might be chilling in your space and having guests over. One tip to ensure this would be to head down to the physical furniture store to have a feel of their products to see if it suits your preferences and needs. You will also be able to seek professional advice from the shop’s staff so that you can make more informed choices.
To add on, while you are at the store, be sure to take note of the dimensions of the furniture and consider whether it would fit well in your home. If you know the dimensions of your home’s space well, you can make the purchase on the spot at the store. If, however, you find that you are unsure, you can have a feel of the furniture then head home to take measurements and make your purchases online if a website is available.
Having these considerations in mind would greatly smoothen your furniture searching and purchase process. Browse our modern collection of rattan furniture above to complete your home!
