Are you looking for an affordable wicker furniture set for your outdoor patio, screened-in porch or sun room? Instead of going with the more expensive natural wicker furniture, you may want to look into resin wicker patio furniture. Resin wicker patio furniture is an affordable, low maintenance, durable, all weather alternative to natural wicker.
How much will it cost you? That depends on how much you want to spend and how long you plan on keeping the furniture. You can run down to your local big box store and find a resin wicker chair or accent table for under $100 or a full dining set, including a table and four chairs for a couple hundred dollars.
If you shop at a specialty patio store you may find the same individual pieces for a couple hundred or maybe even a thousand dollars; or a similar resin wicker patio furniture set for a couple thousand dollars.
Why such a difference?
This is because the lower priced items are usually machine woven with the weather resistant resin, but the resin is woven onto a less sturdy frame. While the same item at the higher price is most likely a tighter hand woven resin, placed on a sturdier steel or aluminum frame. The higher priced item will most likely last a lot longer than the lower priced option.
So how much you want to spend, depends on your taste and lifestyle at the moment. You may be renting a place and want cheap plastic patio chairs for your small outdoor patio. Or you may have just built your dream home and want to furnish your huge outdoor patio and living area. Buying resin wicker patio furniture is a great alternative to the real natural wicker. It is low maintenance, durable and weather resistance. It comes in all kinds of styles, colors, patterns and prices.
