Death Match in the Patio Furniture arena! Wicker vs Plastic!

When you are making the all-important decision about plastic patio furniture, an equally important question just might pop into your receptive mind: Wicker or plastic? When you are making a decision with regard to the kind of outdoor furniture you will use, you have to realize that wicker and plastic both have their own pros and cons, meaning that you are going to have to consider both the pros and the cons of each of these patio furniture materials. Let us look at some of the key differences, key pros and key cons of each of these two materials.

Probably the most attractive aspect of plastic patio furniture is the fact that it costs the least of the two materials. Furthermore, plastic patio furniture is also the easiest to find in stores, as it is a very popular type of material for outdoor furniture. Some additional advantages of this kind of patio furniture are that it is quite easy to move around once in your backyard or patio, it is waterproof, and it also will not cost you an arm and a leg. That said, though, there are also drawbacks to this type of furniture. For one thing, plastic patio furniture will likely blow over during very windy conditions and it also will not be able to withstand a lot of wear and tear! Further, the chemicals in the plastic material may put some people off, and the plastic will also get too hot if left in the sun for too long a period of time.

Now, on to the alternative to plastic, which is wicker? Wicker is a material, along with rattan, that was once used quite a lot for outdoor furniture. However, that trend has died down somewhat, and the use of wicker for outdoor furniture is not as popular as it was some years ago. You see, since it is made of an all-natural material, wicker is susceptible to deterioration if it is abandoned outside uncovered. If you want to use wicker outdoor furniture material instead of plastic, be sure that you first paint it and then keep in a space that is sheltered such as a porch. Lastly, if the weather in your neck of the woods is particularly bad for a certain stretch of time, then you are strongly advised to store it away or at least cover it for the duration of the bad weather.

So as you can see, both plastic and wicker have pros and cons, but plastic appears to be just a little bit more durable than wicker. In addition, you do not quite have to look after plastic nearly as much as you would have to with wicker. However, if the chemicals on plastic patio furniture have you a little bit worried, and then wicker is, of course, a nice, natural alternative.
