Rattan sun loungers are very popular and many people prefer them to any other type of sun lounger. They are great for relaxation on a hot summer day, especially when you are surrounded by lush green surroundings. When you are choosing a rattan sun lounger you will have a wide range to choose from, depending on what type of shape or design you prefer. Choosing the right outdoor lounger is very important as it is an item that will last a long time, and therefore you will need to pay attention to the quality and material of the chair.
When buying a sun lounger you should make sure that it has a quality, strong and balanced weave, so that rattan does not get damaged whilst it is being used outdoors. Rattan is very durable and is made from the natural latex plant. This means that the material cannot be broken down or decomposed, and so it will not crack or break into smaller pieces. This is why rattan is so useful as a material for outdoor furniture and is very strong and sturdy.
It is also important that the rattan sun lounger has a good and secure base. The base needs to be robust and well made, and the best types of bases are made from resin or plastic. These types of bases provide the sun lounger with a solid and secure base that does not easily shake or slide around. There are also some types of sun lounger that come with a built in feet.
It is vital that the rattan or wicker lounger is designed so that it will be easy to clean. Some types of wicker outdoor loungers are lightweight and can be easily swept aside. However, a rattan patio lounger is more complex and heavy, and so it needs to be cleaned and maintained on a regular basis so that it remains appealing and comfortable. An occasional brushing and waxing will go a long way towards keeping the sun lounger looking nice and new.
As the rattan or wicker furniture is held up by the ends of the ladders, it is essential that the sun lounger is kept upright. If it is not, then the person using it may become injured, as they may stumble or slide off. For this reason, the wicker outdoor lounger should always have at least two tie-downs. The first type of tie-down is made of strong rope or wire, which will hold the entire sun lounger up. The second type is a simple band, which fit tightly around the end of the ladders, and helps to keep the lounger upright.
Once the rattan or wicker chair or sun lounger has been assembled, it should be left to dry thoroughly in an outdoor area. It is important to ensure that the rattan does not get wet, as this can cause fungus to grow on the materials. After the materials have dried thoroughly, a protective coating should be applied to help the rattan weatherproof it, and to help keep it looking new. If there is a problem with the rattan sun lounger at any point, then it should be replaced immediately. By using a regular brush, or a damp cloth, the sun lounger will be able to maintain its new look for many years to come.
