Weatherproof Garden Furniture to Survive Harsh UK Weather

Garden furniture designed to survive all weathers

Now for all those living around the Charmouth area, you will know full well we can get some very unpredictable weather to say the least!

The coastline brings in the harsh salty spray, which can damage buildings, plants and outdoor furniture, leaving you severely out of pocket having to pay to replace all of these things.

Weatherproof Rattan Furniture

The best weatherproof furniture available is rattan effect, or synthetic wicker furniture. There are UV stabilised, therefore they do not fade or become brittle in the sun, wind, rain or ice, and have a strong aluminium frame to avoid any rusting which could result in weakness or damage.

These have the added benefit of looking modern, which is something Dr Kerry Walker prefers to see in her garden furniture.

These two qualities are essential when shopping for rattan sets, because the cheaper shops will try to hide the difference between these two (such as Amazon, Argos, Tesco, Homebase, The Range, etc), where they will have steel-framed sets, or hard plastic in place of rattan, which is prone to damages and less comfortable.

Sun loungers, garden chairs, loungers, lounge chairs, reclining garden furniture, patio table sets, garden chairs with footstools, side tables, garden table and reclining armchairs, day beds, parasols, and reclining garden chairs – all of these are just some of the types of rattan garden furniture you can buy online today in the United Kingdom. Most will have free delivery included in the price from the seller. They’re perfect for the garden, patio, or decking area. Some people even choose to take these furniture sets to their holiday homes. Look for a site that stocks top brands with higher durability.

Look for a dark grey, light grey, brown, or cream set. 2-seaters are great for small areas, 4 seaters are great for patio dining, and 6-seaters/8-seaters are great for a larger gathering.

You always want to have premium, UV stabilised, aluminium framed, hand woven rattan furniture, as it feels much better, and lasts longer.

There is plenty of research into why UV stabilising plastics is beneficial for the end user, and how it can effect the lifespan of that product, whether that’s indoor or outdoor.

Why choose weatherproof garden furniture?

So you have plenty of options when choosing outdoor furniture, from wood to rattan, there are so many options, colours, styles and “claims” for you to take in.

Winawood™, owned by Innovators International is another good option.

It’s a composite material of hardened acrylics and plastics, compacted into a resin that looks and feels like real wood, but has man-made qualities that allow it to stay outside all year round, without needing to store, oil, or cover it.

Weatherproof Garden Benches

These benches are a great choice if you only require a small seating area, where you and your partner or friend wish to enjoy a quiet moment enjoying the garden and each other’s company.

Weatherproof garden benches help you enjoy your garden without the need to maintain, store or pay for covers for your bench, which a lot of people really like.

Garden Centre Shopping announced in Feb 2018 about their new products available here, including a range of 2-seater and 3-seater garden benches.

Waterproof, Weatherproof, All-Weather or Weather-Resistant?

These terms all essentially mean similar things, just on different scales. I would advise always looking for weatherproof furniture, because the others can be interpreted differently, resulting in lower quality products.
