Consider the Shape and Size
You need to find outdoor cushions that will fit your patio furniture. This means taking size and shape into consideration. As you shop for cushions, you’ll see that the most common options are cushions for outdoor chaise lounges and patio dining chairs and benches. Choose the cushion that best fits the type of seating you have on your patio.
First, make sure it is the right size. After all, not all chairs and benches have the same measurements, so get out your measuring tape and determine the width and depth of the seat. Then, think about how high you want the seating to be by considering cushion thickness.
Choose Your Preferred Fabric
Types of Filling
As you shop for outdoor chairs, keep an eye out for a few extra features you might like. Ties, for example, allow you to securely attach the cushion to the seat so it doesn’t slide around or fly away on a windy day.
If you don’t like stepping outside and seeing the same cushions every day—but you don’t have the budget to buy new ones regularly—go for reversible cushions that have a different color or pattern on each side. A similar option is a slipcover, which lets you quickly change the aesthetics of each cushion within minutes.
