But for many people, the difference between the various types of braided salons is rather obscure.

They will allow you to know how furniture of both types are made and what are their main advantages as well as their disadvantages.

The rattan garden furniture is made of furniture made from natural materials. It has a very long history since the first furniture of this kind was used by the ancient Egyptians and was made by means of marsh plants in this region of Africa. While they accompanied men throughout their later history, these pieces of furniture became very popular during the time of Queen Victoria of England and have not ceased to be so until today.

The furniture of the resin garden furniture as for them, have not been known until very recently. This is because resin is essentially a kind of plastic, that is, a material created by man only a few decades ago. With the birth of environmental protection movements, some of the manufacturers of this type of furniture have also started producing products from recycled materials, such as bottles of water, for example.

What are the main advantages and disadvantages of both types of furniture? Those, made of rattan, have a natural and friendly look, very suitable for a garden or for a sunny terrace. Rattan outdoor furniture, on the other hand, is also less durable, especially when exposed to sunlight and rain. However, this problem can be easily remedied by covering its chairs and table when not in use.

Being made in a kind of plastic, outdoor furniture made of resin is more durable than that made of natural materials. To maintain it, just use a damp cloth and a little soap. In addition, the resin furniture is sold in different colors. They can also be repainted and customized to better fit into your outdoors. One of their major drawbacks: they are not biodegradable and must therefore be recycled when they are no longer usable.
