Outdoor cushions often need to be replaced as they get damaged by the elements. Consider replacing your outdoor cushions at least every 6 – 8 months, if your furniture is not covered. Here are some tips on how to replace your outdoor cushioning and purchase a new set of custom outdoor cushions.

Measurements – Start off by measuring your cushions and noting it down.

The filling – There are many types of foam fillings that are added to outdoor furniture to make it feel more comfortable. You could choose the cushioning you currently use if it has served you well and it is durable. However, if you feel that you need stronger more durable foam, consider flexible polyurethane foam. This type of foam is affordable and durable if it is encased in a water resistant cover. You could also mix your foam, by adding a thin layer of memory foam, to increase comfort.

Choose your fabric – If you are planning on replacing your cushions outside, it is best to choose a fabric that is water and sun resistant. Although these fabrics are more expensive, they will require a lot less maintenance and would look their best all year around.

Colors – When choosing a color for your outdoor space, remember that neutral colors work best as they can be dressed up or down with accents, like throw pillows, lanterns, and fresh flowers.

Choose a vendor – Once you have your requirements, visit online websites that sell custom outdoor cushions and choose one that suits your criteria and budget.
