How much fabric for outdoor cushions? Compared to other parts of the chair, cushions are often subjected to the most wear. Whether it’s tucked into an armchair or used to soften a sturdy frame, a cushion tends to wear out far more quickly than the rest of the chair’s upholstery. How much fabric will I need to cover a cushion?

If you are coating a box cushion, you will need to take the height of the cushion into consideration. Build a box cushion by multiplying the width by two and the depth by two, then put those values together to determine how much material you will need to assemble the sides, front and rear of the box cushion, respectively. 2 inches should be added for seam allowances.

What is the normal size of outdoor cushions?

Because most outdoor benches and upholstered chairs have just one long cushion, it is simple to measure them for replacement cushions while they are in use. Even though bench cushions vary in length depending on the seat size, most bench pillows are around 18 inches broad and 3 to 4 inches thick on average.

What is the appropriate cushion size for me?

If possible, buy a cushion pad that is the same size as or one size larger than your cushion cover in order to offer additional plumpness and comfort during use. Never choose a cushion pad that is smaller than your cover since you’ll end up with empty areas where there is no stuffing — overloaded cushions look and feel much more luxurious and comfortable.
