One of the things that you need to be aware of when it comes to wicker chairs is the fact that this kind of chair can be the best chair you have ever been in or it will be one of the worst. Something that you should be aware of is that if you buy really cheap wicker furniture you are probably going to have a couple of problems. The first problem that you should be aware of is the fact that cheap wicker tends to weather really really fast and will become brittle literally overnight. This can actually pinch, poke and stab you when you sit down. Another problem to be aware of is the fact that bugs tend to start to live in the wicker if the furniture is not treated properly. This is something that can cause you problems if you just want to relax and have a quiet afternoon and you have bus all over you as you sit. Bugs will actually burrow into the wicker and that also cause the structure of the chair to break down. Finally one of the most important warnings is the fact that you need to make sure that the cushions that are on the wicker are comfortable. I have invested in quality furniture and the wicker holds up well but when it comes to the cushions they were the cheapest most uncomfortable part of the entire set. You can always replace cushions if needed but it is just a simple warning to look out for when you are getting in the wicker chair market. Cushions also can come in thousands of styles and colors so that if you are trying to match colors it is not really an issue when designing your outdoor environment. These are just the basics to consider when you are just about to purchase a wicker furniture set. Hopefully these home design tips have helped you and you will take these warnings into consideration before purchasing wicker furniture.
