Outdoor Wicker Patio Furniture
Rattan wicker furniture has been a staple of outdoor spaces for years. The more modern and just as good today is the resin wicker outdoor furniture. The frames are built with aluminum or powder coated steel materials. Most resin wicker is made from recycled materials to help with the environment. The woven material can be repaired by reweaving straps in the damaged area.
Your outdoor sitting space can be a place to relax with friends and family with the addition of an outdoor resin wicker sofa or conversation furniture. If you have the space you can look at getting a complete set of outdoor wicker patio furniture for your outdoor space that can include dining, conversation or pool side sets.
What to look for in resin wicker furniture
Frames will be made from aluminum or steel. The steel will have to have a good powder coated finish to last under outdoor conditions. The aluminum will be more lightweight, this will be the type you need if you are looking for furniture that you will want to move frequently.
Frames will be covered with a synthetic wicker that is woven just like the natural wicker. The look is very natural with the durability of synthetic. Synthetic material will out last regular wicker in the outdoor environment, the big drawback is the way the color is given to the resin wicker. Resin wicker with the color molded in will last longer, those with a painted surface will have some weather related problems with color retention.
Look for cushions on your furniture to be made of a mold and mildew resistant material. The Oefin material is one of the best for outdoor furniture. Look for zippers and removable covers that will help in the care and cleaning of your cushions. Due to the shape of some cushions, they can be hard to replace when needed. I would suggest that you have some kind of storage during the time that you do not need them.
I recommend some storage solutions in a post, follow the link and see what will look best in your outdoor space.
Styles and types of wicker furniture
Your wicker furniture will come in many sizes. The starting seating size is a relaxing chair that is made for one to relax. You can go get seating all the way up to a sectional that will seat up to six people.
Dining furniture can start with a small bistro set for a balcony or small patio all the way to a dining set for six.
Loungers and beds are available for by the pool.
Styles can go from just getting a skirt with wicker finish to a full wicker style. The Better Homes and Gardens Azalea Ridge line has the most choices and has been a staple in the outdoor wicker furniture for years.

What I think about resin wicker furniture
If you like the look of wicker furniture, the resin wicker will give you a chance to purchase this style at a price much cheaper than the regular rattan wicker. The finish on the frames will last many years in outdoor conditions. Resin wicker material will be made from recycled material to help the environment.
The premium look of wicker can be enhanced with the proper cushions and accessories. Cushions for any outdoor furniture will most likely be the weak point, I would recommend storage solutions for any cushions or other items made of fabric.
