Three Ways To Set Up Rattan Outdoor Furniture

Rattan outdoor furniture has become a staple of gardens, patios and porches worldwide in recent decades, for a variety of reasons. In addition to being visually appealing, durable and, in the case of synthetic rattan, weather-resistant, this material has the added advantage of being highly versatile, and easily inserted into any patio or outdoor area.

In fact, owners of rattan outdoor furniture sets are usually pleased to find they can insert their new items into their pre-existing garden configuration without having to alter it too much. Furthermore, these pieces can usually be incorporated into a garden in a number of different ways, to suit all styles, sizes and types of garden. The article below lists three potential ideas garden owners can take inspiration from.

Scatter Them About

The first way in which garden owners can incorporate newly-bought rattan outdoor furniture into their garden without it looking too jarring is by spacing out the items or placing them in different spots around the garden. While many home-owners prefer to have their rattan sets together in one area, there is no rule that states they have to be configured this way. In fact, spacing out or separating the different items in a set can actively help maintain the visual balance in a garden, by using the furniture to fill empty spaces rather than place it all together in a spot where it will attract attention. Of course, for many garden owners, the whole point of purchasing rattan outdoor furniture is to have it stand out from the rest of the garden, but should this not be the intent, spacing out the pieces may be a solution to bear in mind. Likewise, home-owners with smaller gardens might want to look into this option, as it does help maximise real-estate usage.

Create a Dedicated Area

Creating a dedicated area for their rattan outdoor furniture set is another option for home-owners who have recently purchased this type of item, and arguably the most common in modern society. Most garden owners tend to set aside a portion of their garden for their furniture set, usually in a corner where the set can shine without making moving around difficult or detracting from the other elements of a garden. This configuration is particularly winsome for home-owners who tend to use their outdoor areas to entertain or host functions, as the rattan outdoor furniture will make for an excellent seating area for guests who wish to rest their weary feet.

Clusters

Finally, a third potential configuration for rattan outdoor furniture within a garden is a clustered arrangement. This solution might prove particularly effective with larger sets, which are more easily divided into numerous different parts or sections. These sections can then be placed in different areas of the garden or outdoor area, creating an effect akin to a picnic area or beer garden, with any number of small table-and-seat combinations. This is, again, particularly effective for home-owners who tend to frequently entertain or host company, as it would not only provide the guests with seating options, much like the previous example, but also allow for several groups of guests to sit separately, highly facilitating interaction and mingling.

There are, of course, a number of other possible configurations for a rattan outdoor furniture set within an outdoor area. Ultimately, it is up to the home-owner to assess how much space he or she has at his or her disposal, and to decide what furniture set-up would best make use of that real estate. Whichever configuration he or she might end up going for, however, one thing is for certain: their new rattan outdoor furniture is likely to provide an appealing, durable addition to their garden!
