What is the best rattan garden furniture for my garden?
When you choose your rattan garden furniture, make sure you consider the size of your outside space and your budget and choose accordingly. There are two different types of rattan – natural wooden rattan and polyethylene blend known as polyrattan.
Polyrattan is waterproof and UV resistant which means it won’t fade in the sun. It can stay outside all year round in all weather conditions.
The natural wooden rattan is less durable, so you need to make sure you bring it inside when rain is forecast or invest in a good waterproof cover.
How do I clean rattan garden furniture?
To clean rattan garden furniture – both the natural rattan and the polyrattan types – use a soft cloth and warm water with washing-up liquid. You can also use a handheld vac to get rid of crumbs or debris and a toothbrush to remove any stubborn trapped dirt.
Do I need a cover for my rattan furniture?
It’s a good idea to get a cover for both types of rattan furniture to keep it in pristine condition for longer. Natural rattan should be put indoors or under a shelter during wet weather to stop it getting mould or mildew.

Seidel rattan love seat, £144.99 (WAS £197.99), Wayfair

Evre rattan garden furniture set 4 piece, £149.99, Amazon
Top review: "I brought this simply because the reviews were great. I was still a little sceptical because buying a set like this from elsewhere would cost you around £300+. However, once put together I was shocked at how great quality the set is. The chairs are solid. Next-day delivery was a bonus! Tip for anyone else thinking about buying, to save you time it’s much quicker to put together using an Allen key bit in a ratchet. Installed by myself which was a little challenging at times but wasn’t too difficult at all. I also used a bit of loctite thread locker to make sure the bolts don’t ever come loose on their own."
The review section is full of shoppers who are pleasantly surprised by the quality-to-price ratio of this great little set, which seats four people. It's easy to clean and made of durable, IV-resistant polyrattan, but it does arrive flat packed, and require assembly.
Abreo 9 seater corner rattan dining set, £499 (WAS £599), Amazon
Top review: "I was drawn to this over other items on Amazon and elsewhere online by the number of five-star reviews that it’s been given. I have to say I am thrilled with the sofa set, and I hadn’t anticipated how comfy it would be! I was looking for a place where myself and my family could eat outside on a sunny day, or go out there with the colouring pens etc with the kids… This ticks all the boxes. Really sturdy, really easy to assemble, with the cover sector last well and be enjoyed for many sunny days to come."
If you're fine with assembling yourself, this set is a great option for a large family group. It comes in 12 different colourways of varying grey and brown shades, with either grey or brown cushion covers - all of which are removable and machine washable.
8 seater rattan furniture set, £399 (WAS £849), Wowcher
Wowcher offers a great deal on an eight-seater set - £369.99 instead of £895 for a cube polyrattan dining furniture set with table and chairs in black, brown or grey. That's a saving of 59%. The set is made from a UV-treated and weather-resistant rattan weave. A massive plus point of this set is that the stools and chairs have fold-down backs that allow them to fit neatly underneath the table - you can easily store them away and maximise your space when the table is not in use. There's next day delivery available, but you will need to assemble this yourself.
Three-piece rattan bistro set, £74.99 (WAS £103.99), Amazon
Top review: "Given that this was less than half the price of the cheapest table & chair set in the local megastores I am actually very impressed by the quality, it looks like something that cost a lot more. Also, having read the reviews I almost didn't buy it because of the negative feedback on the packaging. They seem to have addressed that ... everything is pre-assembled and wrapped in bubble wrap, secured with tape. Nothing other than a sharp knife or scissors needed and stops it getting scraped. I'd say it took about 15 minutes to get it all off so really not a problem."
The price point of this easy-clean rattan bistro set is unbeatable. You get two single chairs, and one top side table made from durable all-weather PE wicker on a weather-resistant steel frame, lightweight enough to easily lift and carry round your garden or pation.

Top review: "Very happy with the purchase. 100% recommendable, ideal for chilling out on."

Costway Rattan sun lounger, £169.95, Amazon
Top review: "The lounger was well packaged and came with the full kit to assemble. This took a little time, but was worth it. Considering what rattan furniture costs, this is a very good alternative. I like the style which was not the usual and I like the cushions! It feels sturdy too. I bought two of them and am very happy with my purchase."
Designed with an adjustable backrest, this rattan sun lounger has 6 different positions to cater for sitting, reclining and fully horizontal. It's made of durable PE rattan and has heavy-duty steel frame, meaning it's durable and can hold up to 360kg. It also has non-slip feet and removable cushion cushions for ease of cleaning. It does require assembly.
