Most retirees nowadays no longer have small children around, save for the occasional visit by some grandchildren. But retirees may have the family dog or cat to think about. Having easy-to-maintain, pet-proof patio furniture is a must for senior citizens. The beauty of having wicker, rattan or bamboo furniture is having separate plump cushions that are usually covered with washable cotton fabric.
If you have small children or pets, your furniture might have stains or unpleasant odors. It is therefore more practical to have easy-to-clean furniture that you can wash, wipe, or spray with scented furniture cleaners. Needless to say, your patio floor should also come in easy-to-clean weather-proof material in warm colors that blend with your furniture. Think of dressing up your patio as an enjoyable way of expressing your preferred lifestyle. It is an extension of your personality, your moods, your favorite relaxation area, and pleasant getaway from a hectic working day, so express yourself.
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.
