Why You Shouldn’t Buy Assembled Rattan Furniture


Rattan furniture — it’s the perfect mix of gorgeous and practical. But since the best-quality rattan often costs more than people feel they can justify, many customers end up purchasing the option with the lowest price tag instead. But here’s why you shouldn’t buy cheap, assembled rattan furniture (and what to do instead).

It Won’t Last Long

Rattan struggles with damp climates at the best of times, and when you buy the cheap stuff, there’s a high chance weather damage will affect it within the first few months or years. Manufacturers know this and rarely give a good guarantee. 

Being cheap will cost you more in the long run — better-quality furniture with a proper guarantee might seem more expensive, but the lifespan is long enough to justify the cost several times over.

What’s the point in having outdoor furniture if you can’t enjoy it during rain, sun, and snow?

Less Comfortable

As if the lack of durability wasn’t bad enough, cheap, assembled rattan furniture simply isn’t very comfortable to sit on. Manufacturers cut corners when making designs and choosing materials, resulting in seating that you probably don’t want to sit on for more than an hour at the time.

In contrast, higher-quality options are ergonomically built to ensure you can sit on them comfortably all day long if you wish.

Think Long-Term, Choose Quality

So, if cheap, assembled rattan isn’t the perfect outdoor furniture you thought it was, what should you choose instead? Something with better quality — it might seem more expensive than first, but the cost evens out considering it lasts much longer.
