If you have an enclosed patio, it will be perfectly safe to purchase patio furniture that isn't made of water proof material. In that case, you can rest assured that regular household furnishings can become the perfect patio furniture. If your patio is open to the elements, you will want patio furniture that is waterproof. Your patio furniture can be made of plastic, wrought iron, aluminum, wicker or wood. Plastic patio furniture can be a bit flimsy, but it is light and easy to move. The heavier materials add durability and expense.
Rattan (originated from a Malay word - Rotan) is technically a tree, although it grows like a vine along the ground. They are usually found in the tropical regions of Africa, Asia and Australia. The rattan vines are cut and peeled, then steamed to make them pliable, and then they are used as rattan weaving materials. Rattan furniture can be made of stripes of Rattan that are woven together when the wood is wet. It can also be strips of Bamboo or other materials woven around straight rattan slats. Rattan easily accepts paints and stains like many other kinds of wood, so it is available in many colors and it can be worked into many styles.
You can always go with the classic and traditional patio furniture made out of metal, like wrought iron furniture that will give a very romantic look to your patio as well as being extremely durable and strong, relatively easy to maintain and simple to care for. Whatever kind of furniture you decide to purchase you should always make sure that you have an idea of how it will fit in your patio, don't let your eyes fool you and take the measurements necessary so you will know exactly how much space you got in your outdoors for your quality patio furniture.
