Understanding Your Needs

When selecting cushions for your outdoor furniture, it’s important to consider the environment and climate you will be using them in. You don’t want to buy cushions that won’t last through rain and sun if you live in a more unpredictable climate. The weather can affect the longevity of your outdoor furniture cushions, but you may also not want to spend a fortune on top of the range fabrics if a cheaper alternative can be used. Make sure that whatever kind of cushion you choose is able to deal with whatever kind of weather comes its way so that your outdoor furniture stays looking good and remains comfortable for years to come!

When shopping for outdoor cushions, make sure to consider the size and shape of your furniture. The cushion cover should fit snuggly like a glove. That’s why we prefer custom made replacement cushion covers, rather than stock sizes off the shelf. Not only that, but make sure it complements your personal style as well. You want to make sure you love the look and feel of your outdoor cushions!

All in all, when shopping for outdoor cushions for your furniture, be sure to pick something that is both comfortable and weather-resistant. Look at the quality of its fabric and make sure to choose something that can withstand rain and sun if your furniture is no under cover. High-quality cushions should last longer than regular ones and you’ll be able to enjoy your outdoor furniture without worrying about replacing them year after year.

If you’re in the market for replacement cushions for your outdoor furniture, you should definitely check out what’s available. Whether you’re looking to replace a cushion on an existing set or are replacing all of them, there is a wide variety of sizes and styles available to choose from. With so many options, you can find something that is perfect for both the style of your furniture and your budget.

As mentioned, when shopping for outdoor cushion covers, it’s important to look for materials that are water-resistant and durable. After all, you want your cushions to be able to stand up to the elements and still look great year after year. Look for cushions made from synthetic fabrics such as polyester or olefin that can handle rain, wind and sunshine without fading or tearing too easily. You should also make sure your cushions are treated to resist mold and mildew growth in humid climates. Investing in quality outdoor cushion covers can really pay off in the long run!

When it comes to outdoor cushions, if your cushions will regularly be exposed to the sun and rain, it’s important to choose covers that are color-fast and can withstand the outdoor elements – like our Sunproof Olefin. Otherwise your cushions would quickly fade or become damaged. Investing in a quality fabric designed specifically for outdoor use can ensure your outdoor cushions last season after season. If you are on a budget, and your cushions will be under cover, not exposed to sun and rain, then polyester fabrics can be more appropriate. 

Similarly, when shopping for outdoor cushion covers, it’s important to make sure they fit the cushion measurements correctly. This will ensure a snug fit and maximum comfort while using your outdoor cushions.

Finding the Right Size and Style

When it comes to choosing outdoor cushions, the right size and shape are key. Measuring the cushions you’re looking to cover is a must before you make your purchase! Remember to measure the length, width and height, and ideally measure the existing cushion insert, as your old covers may have stretched. This will help ensure your new cushions fit perfectly on your patio furniture and provide maximum comfort for you and your guests.

If you also need new cushion inserts or foam, we recommend going for a quick dry foam. No matter how water resistant a fabric is, the manufacturing process adds holes when stitching, and water has a great way of always finding its way into a cushion! With quick dry foam this is not so much of a problem. But again, this foam comes at a cost. If your budget is limited you can go for other foam’s, but if your cushions get wet, ensure you remove the covers and dry everything thoroughly to prevent mould and mildew developing.

Thus, when choosing outdoor cushions for your furniture, it is important to consider the amount of weather they will be exposed to. This will help determine the kind of cushion padding and materials you need for your cushion cover in order for it to last. Making sure that you have a sturdy outdoor cushion with long-lasting materials can help prevent having to replace cushions too often.

Selecting Colors and Patterns

If you’re looking for a way to create the perfect outdoor look in Australia, selecting the right colors and patterns for your outdoor cushions is key! Piecing together a variety of colors and patterns can be intimidating, but don’t be afraid to experiment. By finding the perfect combination that works with your aesthetic, you’ll end up with an inviting outdoor atmosphere.

Choosing the right outdoor cushion colors and patterns can be tricky, so make sure you take into account things like the color of your furniture, any existing plants in the area and the overall atmosphere. Doing this will help you come up with a combination that will elevate your outdoor living space and tie everything together for a perfect look.

Furthermore, the cushion cover you choose for your outdoor cushions is also very important in terms of maintenance. If you are looking for something that will not require a lot of regular cleaning and upkeep, you may want to select darker colors and materials that will hide dirt more easily. On the other hand, if you plan on laundering or washing your cushions frequently then lighter colors may be a better choice.

Making the Purchase

If you’re looking to buy outdoor cushions, you can either buy stock cushions of the shelf, or get custom replacement outdoor cushions made. Custom made cushions will cost more, but they will fit your space or existing furniture perfectly and not look under or over-sized. 

If you’re looking for new outdoor cushions for your patio or deck that is exposed to the sun, one of the most important factors to consider is UV-resistance. If your cushion covers don’t protect from the sun’s rays, they can fade and become discolored over time. It’s worth investing in especially durable materials that are designed to withstand UV exposure so that your outdoor cushions can look fresh and vibrant for longer.

Finally, when buying outdoor cushions for your furniture, make sure to consider the cleaning of the cushions. How easy are they to clean? Some fabrics can be machine washed, whereas others can be removed and hosed down. Regular cleaning and maintenance will help in ensuring a longer lifetime for your outdoor furniture, regardless of your budget.

The Final Word

Finally, we recommend you do not leave your cushion covers outside all the time. With some fabrics, like our Sunproof Olefin, you might be tempted to do this. But if you can store them away when they are not in use, you will get years and years more use out of your outdoor cushions.
