Why rattan is good for your sunroomWe’ve all had trouble choosing how to style our conservatories. From the colour, to the ceiling height, to the flooring it’s a nightmare, and that’s before you even furnish it!

Well at least that part can be relatively simple, that is if you choose some luxury rattan to sit on. I honestly cannot recommend this enough, it’s the most comfortable lounging furniture that you could have in the corner of your room, whether it’s a chair or a sofa set, you won’t be disappointed!

Benefits of Rattan Conservatory Furniture

There are so many reasons to choose rattan in this situation, including:

  1. Comfort – the hand woven design means the furniture naturally cushions you, even without cushions!
  2. Durability – this furniture is built to withstand both outdoor and indoor use, and so is designed to last for years.
  3. Flexibility – you can purchase modular furniture which can be moved around independently to help fit your specific needs.

Here’s a useful video to watch on the subject:

Choosing the right colour

I have to say this is one I found difficult, how to match the colour of furniture with the style and shade of your room. It’s a very tricky business, but this article by Do it Yourself has some great information about it.

Types of Furniture to Buy

There are various options to purchase, including:

  1. Sofa sets – these can come straight or in a corner (or modular), and are perfect for lounging around inside your conservatory.
  2. Chair sets – these are nice if you have a small space that you want to enjoy with a friend or partner.
  3. Dining sets – these are great if you also need to eat in your conservatory, offering a flexible yet comfortable place to dine.

So basically you have to choose a set that will fit your situation. From what I’ve seen and read, the best rattan online is the type from Garden Centre Shopping UK, which is perfect for both a small and large conservatory.
