Soaking up the sun during vacation time is one of my favorite things to do. There’s nothing more pleasant than waking up to bright sunshine peering through your window or enjoying an ice tea with that special someone on a tranquil evening with perfect weather on a perfect patio furniture set. Yep!

But not everyone has that pleasure because where they live, it might be too cold or too hot making it virtually impossible to enjoy the exterior.

For those lucky few who get to pick and choose where they live, I have a topic for discussion: the perfect outdoor furniture set and how to choose one.

Key elements of the patio furniture set you want on your lanai

There is nothing more enjoyable than being comfortable on patio furniture while being outside surrounded by nature’s scenery. It doesn’t have to be fancy furniture but just good enough so you can eat dinner, watch TV with your family and friends, or just simply enjoy a cup of coffee on the patio.

When it comes to outdoor furniture, there are two things that must be considered; durability and comfort.


Whether you enjoy sitting under the stars reading a good book, or spending all afternoon in the sun with your friends and family – choosing the right rattan furniture set is imperative to ensure you get the most out of your outdoor experience.

There are many kinds of traditional furniture such as wicker and teak but most people nowadays want something more lightweight and durable like resin wicker furniture.

The most important thing to keep in mind when purchasing all-weather wicker furniture is durability which means it is better to spend a little bit more on good quality furniture than buy cheap rattan furniture that will last you only a few years.

It is a highly versatile material that can be used in a variety of ways and is perfect for outdoor furniture because it’s extremely durable, lightweight, and resistant to corrosion.

In addition, this kind of rattan lasts longer than traditional furniture because it isn’t affected by humidity or rain which makes maintenance minimal.

But one must be careful when purchasing resin wicker furniture because there are three types of materials used to make wicker furniture:

  • The first is aluminum. It is an expensive material but has the most elegant finishes. Since it is lightweight, aluminum can become rather brittle especially in harsh climates. 
  • The second kind of wicker furniture is composite. It is a combination of recycled plastic and wood or other materials. Composite wicker furniture is durable, not easily affected by the elements, lightweight, and rust resistant; however, it also has a plastic feel to it. 
  • The last kind is PE which stands for polyethylene. However, unlike aluminum and composite wicker furniture, PE rattan must be handcrafted rather than machine fabricated. This means that it is processed slowly by skilled workers. The result is furniture with tightly packed strands which makes it more durable than aluminum wicker furniture and less prone to damages especially in a harsh climate where it will be exposed to the elements such as rain, wind, and sunlight.

Nowadays this kind of furniture is so popular because it is made from a formula that combines the durability of PE rattan furniture and the appearance of aluminum furniture. If you choose high-density PE rattan furniture, it will be lightweight and strong. 

When purchasing rattan furniture, one must keep in mind what kind of climate they live in to get appropriate furniture or simply choose handcrafted resin wicker instead of machine fabricated. When shopping for a patio furniture set, always consider what material will be best for your climate conditions – especially when you are located in Hawaii. High-density polyethylene resin will be the best choice to help your patio furniture withstand even the harshest elements. This material is long-lasting and can stand up against salt water or harsh sunlight for years with little to no wear.

In addition, when choosing resin wicker furniture, one must consider how much they will be using it. If you use your furniture a lot in a harsh climate, don’t skimp on the price by buying cheap furniture because it won’t last.

On the other hand, if you only use your patio furniture once in a while when you have guests over, it’s okay to go for the cheap stuff. Choosing the right rattan patio furniture set for the climate in Hawaii definitely isn’t easy because there are so many choices and it is very important to make the right choice when selecting the perfect furniture for your home.


There are countless reasons why someone chooses to purchase a patio furniture set. Whether they would like to spend more time outside or simply enjoy their new outdoor space, they can find the perfect seating arrangement with a little searching and a lot of patience.

Choosing the perfect rattan furniture set for you is about more than just style and design – it is also about functionality and comfort. If you live in a place where spending time outside can be very hot or humid, choosing the right rattan furniture set will not only look good on your lanai – but feel good as well!

After determining how much seating one needs and what style is preferred, it’s important to think about the materials used in the furniture. PE rattan furniture is a popular choice because it’s durable and comfortable.
