If your relaxing indoors or out in the garden, wicker furniture sets look fabulous. But, choosing the best wicker furniture set in terms of design and durability can be difficult. There are designs that range from beautiful contemporary pieces to traditional pieces. Here are a few tips on how to choose the best wicker furniture set for you.

Consider the type of wicker – There are mainly two types of wicker. One is flat, while the other versions are rounded. If you choose the flat variety, your wicker set could be more susceptible to snapping and fading. The rounded versions are more durable and therefore the wiser choice.

Look at the cushions – Your cushions will give you the comfort necessary to sit in your furniture for longer periods of time. The thicker the filling of your cushion the more comfort you will enjoy. Thin cushions may be cheaper, but you will find that they are uncomfortable and tend to sag. Choose machine washable cushion covers with zips, to make cleaning a breeze.

Pay attention to furniture frames and weaves – To ensure your furniture lasts, choose one with corrosion-free aluminium instead of steel. Furniture made with steel frames maybe cheaper, but will tend to rust in moist environments.

Look into materials used – It is best to choose indoor rattan furniture, since rattan is stronger than other wicker furniture made out of bamboo, cane, willow or reed.
