How to Keep Your Outdoor Furniture Looking New

Very few pieces get more punishment than outdoor furniture. Whether it is the blazing sun, a blizzard, or getting soaked at a party, it is bound to receive some abuse.

That is why it is important to give your outdoor furniture regular maintenance.

While modern wicker outdoor furniture can withstand some elements, annual maintenance enhances their longevity. If you want to get value for your money, have a look at some of these tips from Wicker Paradise.

Cushion Care

Today’s wicker fabric is highly durable. However, do not smile yet, dirt and grime can dull even the resilient weaves.

You should not let this happen. Start by dusting off the surface first before applying some detergent. Rinse thoroughly to remove all soap. Give your cushion time to dry.

In the end, the cushions should be as cheery and bright as the day you bought them.

Wicker Maintenance

Is your furnishing in good shape? Well, despite this they still need some vacuuming.

Dip a cloth in the mild detergent solution and wipe down the furniture. Scrub off the stubborn grime and stains with a brush.

In the end, you may rinse the furniture using a cloth saturated in plain water.

What happens when you notice that the wicker is splitting and drying out? Well, choose a windy day to mist it with the garden hose. Allow the wicker to dry in a shady environment.

Avoid misting your rattan furniture more than twice in a year unless you want to prevent the glue joints from becoming weak.

Using wicker furniture effectively when designing your interior

Good interior design is all about balance. Accentuate one element too much, and it will throw the entire room off. You won’t know what exactly, but something will not feel right. What is too much? That is quite subjective and will depend on the person, the room, and the existing furniture. Here are some tips from Wicker Paradise on using wicker furniture in the home:

Appropriate furniture

There is a popular phrase that goes “when the only thing you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.” The same applies when using wicker. The fact that your patio or your backyard looks great with all that wicker furniture does not mean that will translate well in the house. Some pieces like Lane Venture furniture are good both indoors and outdoors, but of the time you need to be very selective for indoor furniture.

Look at the space

As was alluded to above, most furniture choice needs to take the room and the context into consideration. Most areas in a home will be well served with some wicker furniture to accentuate the existing furniture. For example, wicker baskets for an open cupboard, or wicker items for a nursery. There are a lot of options.

Theme

Lastly, the other consideration is the theme of your home. Some homes carry an overarching theme throughout the entire property. If you don’t have a theme, you can create one, using a particular type or color of wicker through the entire house to accentuate each room.

 

How to Incorporate Wicker Furniture Inside a Home

Summary: People typically put wicker furniture outside on their patios or porches, but you can easily incorporate wicker into your home. Make sure to keep a couple things in mind so your wicker room complements the house.

Typically, when one thinks of wicker furniture, they think it is outside on a patio or porch. However, wicker is quite easy to put indoors and gives rooms a naturey feel, while still looking clean cut. Here are some things to think about when you want to add wicker into your home.

Find the Room With the Most Natural Light

The more sunlight that enters the room, the more natural the area looks. Natural light is the perfect way to accentuate your wicker furniture sets. You can feel like you are sitting outside, without having to actually be outside. For this reason, putting wicker furniture in sunrooms is a highly popular choice.

Complement the Warm Light

Remember that the sunlight will make the room warmer, and it will make the colors in the room look warmer too. Keep a fan close and choose wall paint and other furniture colors accordingly. Dark colors will look lighter and brighter. Light colors will have a little hint of a glow.

Wicker furniture also comes in different tones, usually of brown. So make sure all the colors in your room complement each other. Decide whether you want your walls and furniture to contrast drastically or not. This will also help you determine the colors for the furniture cushions. You can always get spare sets of cushions from a furniture store, like Wicker Paradise, and swap them out from time to time if you cannot decide on one color.

Adding wicker to your home is not a difficult task. It can make a room feel more relaxed and casual, while maintaining a certain elegance at the same time.

How to maintain wicker patio furniture

Summary: Wicker is perfect for the outdoors, but can take a beating from the weather. With some care and maintenance like regular brushing, adjusting the weave, covering it, and a touch-up paint coat, wicker furniture will last for years.

The iconic look of wicker lends itself to patios, backyards, poolsides, and other outdoor areas. Unfortunately, when outside, the exposure to the elements can wreak havoc with any furniture. The only way to get the most out of your wicker furniture is consistent maintenance. Here is a quick primer on how to look after and maintain wicker furniture:

Wicker is easy to care for, all you need to do is brush the furniture regularly. The most dirt and grit you find the most often it will need cleaning. When you don’t brush them, little bits of dirt and organic matter will collect and cause mold and mildew to form.

Alternatively, another method to preserving the furniture is to cover them when nobody is using them. You can take it one step further and even store them away during times of extreme weather, thereby reducing the exposure to the weather.

In addition to the brushing, have a look at the weave every month or so and move them back in to place. The weave moves around and gives enough time can cause the substance to stretch and fray.

Painted wicker will fade and get damaged over time. A touch-up coat from a spray can keep it looking new and protect the wicker at the same time. Look at the frame, as some frames are painted and will require a touch-up coat.
