Outdoor Patio Wicker Furniture Sets
What types of wicker furniture will you need
The wood type is not weather resistant. It is made of Rattan, Bamboo or Cane material. The water and sun will destroy this type of material. It is best suited for a covered area or an inside room.
The resin type of wicker is a aluminum frame with a synthetic material to look like wicker. The synthetic is made of a composite of wood and resin. This material is very resistant to water and sunlight. It can be powder coated or dyed in a variety of colors to match any decor. I have more detailed information on the Better Homes Gardens Azalea Ridge Patio Furniture set in the feature photo above follow this link to see what it has to offer.
What upkeep is there with wicker furniture
Rattan type wicker will need to be cleaned with just dusting and occasional polishing.
Synthetic wicker is easier to clean and upkeep. It can be hosed off with a mild dishwasher detergent to remove any dirt or rain spots. It will retain its color in most any conditions outside.
Cushions should be stored out of the weather, if they do get wet just stand them up the let the water drain out before storing them away. This will prevent mold and will make the cushions last longer.
Advantages of wicker
Synthetics have a lower cost and can be made of a lighter material. They are more durable and weather resistant. Just wash them off with a hose when necessary.
Almost all tables will have a hole for an umbrella for shade.
Some sets come with chairs that stack for easy storage when not in use.
Wood wicker is not weather resistant. It has to be stored out of the weather and sunlight when not in use. Cannot be left in an outdoor room without cover or protection.
Wood wicker can be very heavy and bulky. This will make it hard to move in and out as the weather changes.
