About Rattan Beds
Styling your bedroom with a luxurious rattan bed frame
Whether you choose a fine single-layer rattan or a defined two-layer weave for your headboard, rattan is a show-stopping texture that makes your double bed in rattan the (rightful) star of your bedroom. For a natural look, opt for a neutral tone. For a romantic feel, try painted rattan in antique white.
Complete the look by matching a bedside with your rattan bed. For extra impact, choose one with a standout feature such as a unique silhouette or white-wash tint, ideal for a shabby-chic French bedroom. To reinforce the natural beauty of your rattan bed, you can style it with floral or botanical print bed linen and cushions. For larger accessories, try pairing with other natural materials such as wood textures and jute.
A coat of paint on rattan can transform the styling of a room. Go bright white for a crisp, modern look, or why not try grey for a delightfully vintage feel? Our French Grey Painted Rattan Bed is stained in a lightly distressed pale grey, creating a luxurious, elegant statement piece.
Add a rattan chair to your existing furniture to create a beautiful contrast in textures. As well as being a striking visual, rattan chairs with a dense weave are really comfy to sit on. Style with cushions that match the current room theme, and you have an instant stylish and comfortable reading corner.
How to clean rattan furniture
If you’ve had your lovely new bed for a while, it’s most likely time to do some spring cleaning! Here are our top tips for cleaning your gorgeous new rattan bed frame:
Once a fortnight, use your vacuum’s brush attachment or any small brush with non-abrasive bristles to give the rattan bed head and foot boards a general clean. A soft brush will avoid any abrasion against the rattan.
To remove any stubborn soil, use a toothbrush or a similar fine tool. This will also need to be used to get between the rattan bed’s tight weaves.
To keep your lovely new rattan bed in the best condition, once a month apply warm (not hot) soapy water to the frame without getting it too wet. Make sure you use a soft, clean cloth to gently remove marks, dust and dirt.
We would recommend avoiding washing your furniture on cooler days as it will take longer to dry out, which would in turn increase the risk of mould spores and damp appearing.
Be sure to follow these steps to maintain the beauty of your gorgeous new rattan bed frame. Bien dormir!
