It’s that time of year the weather is getting warmer, days are sunnier and nights are longer.  So, with all these natural occurrences happening we find we love to entertain, enjoy a BBQ, a few drinks, sit around the fire pit and have a laugh with friends and family. Are your outdoor cushions looking tired and rundown? You may be in the process of building new seating for outside! As a result you would like to know how you can make these areas inviting and comfortable for you and your guests. Revamping existing outdoor chair cushions or creating an inviting outdoor space using custom cushion covers, is not as difficult as it may seem. Read on to find out how measuring custom cushion covers is easy…

Measuring Custom Cushion Covers for Daybeds

Daybed covers come in all shapes and sizes, from rectangular to round and those in-between. When measuring custom cushion covers, the rectangular daybed insert only requires a few measurements: Length x Width x Depth Daybed cover & cushion dimensions

If your daybed is circular, measuring custom cushion covers is simple. Only 2 measurements are required. See our diagram below: Diameter(across the middle of the circle) x Depth Round Daybed Dimensions

It’s that simple…  

Outdoor Cushions

What about outdoor chair cushions you may ask… Let’s take Bolster cushions for example, because these cushions are usually used for arm/back support, or decorative purpose.  By measuring the Diameter (across the middle of the circle) x Length  we can give you an idea of cost.

Throw cushions come in all shapes and sizes. Depending on the size of the insert you have or want to get, will depend on the size of the cover.  For a plump filled cushion you should always go up a size for your insert.  For example, if you have a 45cm x 45cm cover you should have a 50cm x 50cm insert.  Similarly, a 60cm x 60cm cover will need a 65cm x 65cm insert. As a result you will have a plump and filled custom cushion that will look inviting on any day!

Even outdoor cushion covers that are different shapes can be made, for instance we have an example below: Outdoor cushions in odd sizes are no problem!
