Outdoor Furniture Cushions - Beautify your Furniture
Replacing your cushions
If there is one thing that can enhance your outdoor furniture, it is cushions. Not only will they improve the aesthetics of your furniture, they will also improve its comfort levels.
The key when it comes to buying or replacing cushions is simple – if the furniture itself is high-quality, the cushions should also be high-quality.
If the cushions are one of your top priorities when buying outdoor and patio furniture, then look for materials such as heavy-duty nylon and quick drying foam that are made for the harsh outdoor elements. Also remember to look for materials that are UV and stain resistant.
If you cant afford new outdoor furniture, but want to inject some new life into your old set, how about a few replacement cushions to give it a whole new look?
Replacing the cushions can be as simple as contacting the manufacturer and viewing their latest season’s lines. Most manufacturers just advance each line for the following season that is based on similar measurements, so fitting the new cushions to the frame of your existing garden furniture should be relatively easy.
Alternatively, a number of web-based companies manufacture and supply generic cushions in various sizes and colors. This is an ideal option for people looking to find something a little different and unique for their outdoor furniture set.
This is also a great idea for replacing ruined and ageing cushions.
Caring For Your Outdoor Cushions
Cushions should be removed from the furniture frame before cleaning. Spot clean noticeable stains using a sponge, mild soap and water, and then rinse the cushion with clean water. Then allow to it dry completely before using or storing, in order to prevent mould and mildew growing.
Some types of cushions are resistant to mildew, but if you do find you have a problem with it, use a mix of one cup of bleach, two cups of dishwashing detergent and one gallon of water to clean. Mix the ingredients together thoroughly and spray on the entire cushion. Allow it to soak in for 30 minutes, and then scrub the cushion with a sponge or clean rag. Rinse the cushion clean and then allow it to dry properly.
