Replacing Garden Furniture Cushions

When outdoor furniture comes with cushions that aren’t right for your decorating theme color palette or they don’t hold up over time.

All too often, outdoor furniture comes with cushions that aren’t right for a person’s existing decor or they don’t hold up over time. When a new season begins, there is nothing like changing cushions for a fresh new look. From off the rack versions to custom made ones, it is a quick way to freshen up existing outdoor furniture.

During this time of recession and looking to save on spending, replacing outdoor cushions can be an inexpensive way to revamp the look of an outdoor area without making major buys. This is especially true if existing furniture is still good or if there’s an attachment to it. It is very simple to change color, fabric and style by replacing them.

There is nothing difficult about finding replacement cushions. But, the selection can be overwhelming too. In this age of mass manufacturing and production, and the availability of the internet, an enormous amount of time can be spent finding just the right ones. No longer are people forced to buy replacements that look exactly what they want to get rid of.

If one sticks totally to local retail stores, the selection is likely to be slim. The sizes or styles may match only what is being sold that season rather than offering the consumer a choice in replacements. Having the brand of furniture as well as the dimensions handy can make online shopping fun and fruitful too. The choices are wide and varied.

Online, one will find there are many sites who stock wide varieties. From the websites of the big box stores to specialty sites, it doesn’t take long to realize that much more is offered online than in stores. These sites will offer not only standard fare but much more exotic as well. It is possible to replace or to completely upgrade in both cushion grade and fabric.

Finding options for shape, fabric, cushion thickness and even welting is simple. Most sites also stock unusual or hard to find items for older pieces like gliders or outdoor rocking chairs. And any who offer options will also have easy to follow guides for measuring and ordering.

Ordering custom made cushions need not cost a fortune, and it’s one way to get what you want. Having exactly the style, the color, the size and the fabric that you want can be a design boost for any area of a home and the outdoors is no exception. It is possible to order swatches or order fabric alone online and have the cushions made locally.

There are two ways of approaching outdoor furniture replacement cushions. There’s opting for inexpensive replacements that may last no more than one season. For some, temporary is more fun. They can be changed out again the following year too. Others may want to choose more expensive fabrics like Sunbrella and plan to use the cushions for years. Each can be a good choice depending on the homeowner.

Replacing outdoor furniture cushions improves not only the look and design of a space but offers additional comfort too. Shopping online is a great winter time activity when spring and summer seem far away. Order them when it’s cold and there’s no time wasted once the warm days appear again.
