How to cover patio furniture cushions

Do you want to know how to cover patio furniture cushions? Your home is not complete without an outdoor space you love. A place for you to enjoy the glorious Australian weather, spend time with family and friends or take some downtime to relax and escape daily stresses. If you’re looking to decorate your patio furniture and elevate your outdoor cushions, read on for this guide to covering your patio furniture cushions.

Think about colour

When covering your patio furniture cushions, there are many design aspects to consider. Arguably the most important one is colour. Whether you’re looking for covers for the patio couch’s base cushions or decorative throw cushions, it’s important to take into account your desired colour scheme and what shades may complement each other and which ones would clash and should be avoided.

For example, if you’re going for a neutral tone like beige, cream or white, you may want to look at decorative cushions with a pop of colour. Navy blue is often a popular choice and subtly varies in shades that may make your furniture more dimensional. However, if you feel your patio furniture is likely to be exposed to a lot of wear and tear, perhaps you have small children in the house, for example, you may want to avoid a light colour for the base cushions such as cream or white as stains will show up easily. Try a charcoal grey which will be more forgiving to wear and tear and appear fresher for longer.

Consider a pattern

Pattern designs can be a great, fun way to spruce up your patio furniture but too many patterns can clash. If you have striped base cushions covers, it may be that polka-dot decorative covers for your patio throw cushions create an eyesore. Try to save the patterns for your throw cushions and compliment them with block colour covers in the same shade to add some subtlety and avoid harshness.

Look for good quality

Your patio furniture will go through a lot. It has to withstand weather changes along with general wear and tear with daily use, not to mention the damage from any garden events you may host. This means it’s important to prioritise purchasing high-quality covers and check for reviews and further details on products before purchasing.

Although higher-quality covers may be slightly more expensive, they are an investment. Opting for cheaper and lower-quality covers may save you money initially, but in the long run, it’s the least cost-effective option. By choosing lower quality covers you put not only the covers but the cushions at risk of damage too. This makes it more likely for needing replacements more often which will cost a lot more money and stress.
