Rattan Dining Sets

Summertime offers one the best opportunities to get outside and enjoy the fresh air and socialise with friends and family, and that’s the main reason you need a rattan dining set. All sounds very quick and easy to do, but with the right garden furniture, it now becomes comfortable and practical too. We all love the thought of dining outside but often lack the space or the setup to be able to host such a get-together. We often wonder just how we could get a decent quality dining table and chairs into the garden. We also wonder just how we are going to be able to store such big, bulky tables without having to un-assemble them and put them in the garden shed. Well, there is a solution and a simple one at that! Made from sturdy powder-coated aluminium or steel frames and interlaced with PE rattan, a beautiful, practical and luxurious dining experience is very doable. Whether you are looking for a large round glass top table to a compact cube dining set, we can help and offer advice if needed.

Our full range of garden furniture products can be purchased for a small intimate gathering of close family to a large party with family, friends and neighbours all being catered for. Not only can you focus on the dining experience, but with our full range of garden furniture, you can ensure that the party goes off with everyone comfortable and relaxed in every area of your garden.

Outdoor Rattan Dinning Sets

Outdoor dining furniture is readily available in different colours, shapes and designs. Let’s start with colours. Throughout most rattan designs there are 3 base colours. These are grey, brown and black. Most companies will be able to offer a full range of matching garden furniture in these basic colours. Once you start going to the high-end outdoor living styles you will start to see other, more natural colours become available.

These will often be accompanied with luxury scatter cushions and accessories too. Once you have decided on the colour, it’s then down to the shape.

The shapes can give you lots and lots of different options and this can be an area where you need to think a bit more carefully and have your ideal vision and end goal for your outdoor living space in mind. Be bold and experiment.

  • How many seats? Do you need a 6 or 8 seater round table set? – Very practical and sociable for larger gatherings
  • Do you go for the practical rectangle dining set? – Very versatile and easy to expand upon
  • Need something small and compact – well maybe it’s a cube dining set you need?
  • Do you want to possibly expand in the future – if so then rectangle dining sets are ideal as you can push them together to make long tables for many guests?
  • Is your dining set going to be part of your rattan corner dining set, again a rectangle table is best as a circular table with a square corner sofa causes problems?
  • Want something small? Get a rattan bistro set. Intimate and cosy just for the 2 of you.

How do i decide on my rattan furniture?

This can all seem a bit daunting but it really is down to the question of what you want to be doing in your garden? Don’t be afraid to make a drawing and try the different shapes and setups before making your final decision. Your furniture will last a lifetime so make it look as good as possible!

The last real thing to consider is the style of your rattan garden furniture. This s mainly personal preference and doesn’t really affect many other areas. With dining tables being the main focal point, there isn’t much you can change here. At the end of the day, a table is a table!

Most companies will offer pre-defined rattan dining sets that you buy, however, there is always the option of buying individual items so that you can mix and match designs a little bit. Being able to change your chairs from a low back style to a high back is an important consideration for your dining set. Do you want arms on the chairs? Again a consideration that shouldn’t be overlooked.

Most garden dining chairs will come complete with seat cushions for extra comfort too. Some other small things to look at for your outdoor dining experience are

  • Do you want a rattan lazy susan for your table?
  • Do you need a parasol hole for an umbrella?
  • Are you likely to expand your set? Check that extra seating is available to purchase separately.
  • Do you want a glass top or just the normal rattan?
  • Is the dining furniture already assembled? Free delivery maybe?

How do i look after my rattan dining set for the winter?

The one area that a lot of people forget about is ‘What do i do with my rattan garden furniture during the winter?’ hmmmmm.

We have all enjoyed the hot summer sun with your luxurious rattan garden dining furniture. We’ve all done outdoor dining most weekends and our nice new dining sets are now broken in well. But what do we do when the weather gets cold and the dining furniture is now redundant until next summer. The last thing you want to do is just leave the furniture in the garden.

Although strong and robust, your dining sets will get affected by the weather unless you protect them. Of course, the best scenario is to ensure your dining set is brought inside and kept dry and away from the winter frosts.

If you are able to it’s always best to stack your outdoor dining sets in your shed or garage. Failing this option, you will, as a minimum need to get a protective cover. These covers will keep the rain off the garden furniture. It will also ensure that the frost does not get directly onto the rattan or the metal framework.

This is extremely important to ensure you get the full life span from your rattan furniture.
