You’ve always wanted a cosy leisure area to spend time with your loved ones and host your visitors.
You got it right when you bought the rattan garden furniture. It was easy to choose because rattan comes in:
Now, as you sink into your comfortable rattan sofa, soaking up the sun and enjoying the warm summer weather, you notice your glorious outdoor furniture set looks dull. For now, you decide to brush off that feeling.
However, the following day, you look out your window, and you get that same impression again. You finally decide it's time to look for decor ideas that’ll help brighten up your rattan garden furniture.
Today, we’ll give you three gorgeous decor tips to help you do just that.
You can’t go wrong with stylish throw pillows on rattan garden furniture. Most throw pillows blend well with the furniture. In fact, the pillows even blend well with the dining sets that may accompany that furniture.
Yet, did you know you can custom-make your throw pillows to brighten your Grey Aston Rattan Corner Sofa Set? You can do this by including any of these pillow designs:
Throw pillows should complement the rattan cushions by creating a colour balance that leads to a striking appearance.
If your current cushions are dull, change them for a mix of brightly coloured and dark pillows — Bright colours include orange, yellow, blue or maroon. They go well with darker pillows like grey, dark blue and deep brown.
You can also have trending pillows customized to include a photograph. Perhaps of yourself, an animal or a famous person you admire.
Expert tip: Digital art and painting prints are also currently trendy and hot sellers.
Important note: Buy throw pillows made from highly durable material if your patio furniture is in an open space. Direct sunlight and precipitation can damage your pillows.
A wide variety of suitable outdoor materials are available for throw pillows. This table shows the best outdoor throw pillow fabric for your rattan garden furniture.
|Outdoor Garden Furniture Pillow Fabric||Features|
- Stylish, soft and versatile
- Resistant to stretching and scratching
- Easy to clean
- Unaffected by mould
- Smooth texture
- Dries fast
- Easy to customise
- Hardly wrinkles
- Resists mould
- Doesn't fade easily
- Soft and comfortable
These fabrics are easy to manipulate and style because they’re heavier, flexible and absorb colour well. They're also great for custom printing on because their fibres are strong and bring out all the elements in a design.
Setting up rattan garden furniture gives your outdoor space an exquisite look instantly. The rattan material has a traditional natural look that adds a warm ambience.
Going further by adding planters around your rattan furniture can significantly highlight the natural atmosphere.
You can use vertical garden designs, colourfully styled planters, or raised garden beds to augment your patio — even with an already green landscape.
Planters you can add to your patio include:
The fresh air from plants and the fragrance from flowers help you relax as you enjoy your time on your Black Cote Rattan Garden Furniture.
That said, it's vital to choose the best planter material that enhances your rattan garden furniture colour and blends well with your overall garden appearance.
The six types of planters you can choose from are:
Expert Tip: Get other benefits from your planters by growing herbs for cocktails or cooking. You can also grow insect-repelling plants.
Parasols are a great addition to your patio because they offer both a decorative and protective function.
A beautiful parasol can add pleasant visual effects like colour, light and elegance to your patio. They also add a stunning reflection to your rattan garden furniture.
Factors to consider before buying a parasol are:
There are primarily three types of outdoor parasols.
The classic patio has a central pole secured at the centre of your rattan table or attached to a heavy base. Most of these umbrellas have a tilting canopy to angle them against the sun.
Ensure the umbrella you buy has a wind-up mechanism that allows you to open or close it without much effort. Another great feature to look out for is height adjustment allowance.
The cantilever stands freely and has a curved canopy which allows for greater flexibility and positioning. Cantilevers are the best choice for your rattan garden furniture.
Choose one with a tilt and crank mechanism as well as a 360 degrees rotating arm. A locking mechanism helps to keep the parasol in your preferred position.
If your patio has an awkward shape, you can get a half-moon patio umbrella. These umbrellas are also great for a balcony or small courtyard. It's a simple, attractive addition that enhances your outdoor decor and still offers protection from direct sunlight.
Once you’ve picked a parasol for your garden furniture, you need to buy one that fits your furniture set. For example, an eight-seater dining set like the Brown Kemble 8 Seater Garden Dining Set won't fit properly with a four-seater sized parasol.
The table below has measurements you can refer to:

Ready to install your parasol? Here's a video showing you how to do it.
At Laura James, our Rattan Garden Furniture Set comes with a cantilever parasol that complements and adds to the stunning look you desire in your patio.
Most colours go well with rattan furniture because of their natural tone. Brown rattan would match with beige, peach and yellow ochre. Black and grey would match with lilac, orange, shades of blue and other bright shades.
The best oil to use is boiled linseed oil. You can apply it twice a year if your rattan furniture set is dry, split or cracked. The alternative, raw linseed oil, leaves a sticky residue and doesn't dry well.
If you wish to replace your rattan garden furniture, Laura James offers you a wide variety of the best rattan garden furniture. We have cube sets, dining sets, sofa sets and bistro sets.
