What Do The Reviews Say About Hampton Bay Patio Furniture?
What do customers think of their Hampton Bay patio sets? As everyone loves a rattan patio set, we took a look at one of Home Depot’s most popular ones.
The “Laguna Point 4-Piece Brown Wicker Outdoor Patio Deep Seating Set with CushionGuard Quarry Red Cushions” currently retails on the Home Depot website for $1199. It’s an attractive set that comprises a large couch, two chairs, and a low table. The five-person set is rain, rust, and UV resistant, and has a 3-year limited fabric and frame warranty.
We read some of the reviews on the Home Depot website. The Laguna patio set scores highly, with 4.5 stars out of a possible 5. Almost 1,000 customers have reviewed this product.
Purchasers like the easy assembly, and many commented on the comfortable seat cushions. It also rates highly for good looks. However, some reviewers commented that their furniture showed signs of rusting, despite being rust-resistant.
What do reviewers think of one of Hampton Bay’s cheaper patio sets? The “Gableton 4-Piece Steel Outdoor Patio Wicker Conversation Set with Beige Cushions” is usually $599, around half the price of the Laguna.
This set seats four people on a small couch and two chairs. There’s also a table. Again, it scored well with customers giving it 4.6 stars out of 5. Over 700 people have reviewed this item.
Customers love its looks, and people are pleased with how compact it is. There are also some positive comments about its quality for the price. Assembly gets mixed reviews; however, this suggests that it’s a little trickier than the slick Laguna.
The lower scores are mainly due to assembly issues, including the(for some) long assembly time. There are also a couple of comments about the quality. However, some customers do mention that this is OK for the low price point.
How Much Does Hampton Bay Patio Furniture Cost?
Hampton Bay pitches itself as a good-value brand. There’s a good choice of products at different prices. As we saw above, patio sets can range from $500 to $1200, with a great many products in between.
How Do I Store My Hampton Bay Patio Furniture?
The best way to store Hampton Bay patio furniture is undercover. Home Depot sells a range of tailor-made covers to fit a lot of its outdoor patio furniture collection.
It’s a good idea to remove the cushions at the end of every day to stop them from becoming damp in the cool night air. You can get patio storage boxes to pop them in overnight (some double as useful benches or coffee tables).
If it rains, whip the cushions off and stick them indoors or inside until the clouds pass over. They may be water-resistant, but a lot of exposure to rain could lead to mold and mildew developing on the fabric.
To winterize your Hampton Bay furniture, first, remove the cushions. Wash any removable covers if necessary, then make sure they’re completely dry before storing them in a clean, dry place.
The furniture should be able to stay outdoors under covers, unless you live in an area that gets really bad winter weather. Vacuum, wipe, and dry the furniture, then put the covers on. Make sure you tie or fasten the covers correctly, as they can blow off in a gust of wind.
It’s important to ensure the furniture is clean before storing it. If there is food debris on the furniture, you may take the covers off in the spring to find that unwelcome critters have chosen to make their home inside your dry and crumb-filled sofa. Spillages left to become stains can lead to mold growth over the winter.
Final Words: Where Can I Buy Hampton Bay Patio Furniture?
