How to Tell Your Outdoor Furniture Cushions Need Replacements

You might think it’s obvious that your cushions need replacing, but some people put the task off for years before they ever do it. Stores like Wicker Paradise offer great bargains on cushions, and replacement accessories, so it’s never been more affordable to give you patio a face lift. Here are some thoughts and tips to get your started.

The Fabric Is Frayed or Faded

When a homeowner has been ignoring the condition of their outdoor furniture, the cushions might be in deplorable condition. It is easy to know that the cushions are in bad shape when the fabrics are faded or frayed. If the cushions on a home’s outdoor furniture are not covered with fade-resistant fabrics, then the material begins to discolor, leading to an ugly appearance. It is impossible to fix the faded fabrics, but it is possible to buy replacement cushions in the right size for chairs and sofas.

When a Cushion’s Fiberfill Is Flat or Lumpy

Patio furniture cushions can also flatten with a lot of use, and when the fiberfill in the cushions is lumpy and flat, it is easier to replace the entire item. At an online specialty store, it is easy to find an assortment of cushions that are made with high-quality pieces of outdoor foam. In addition, these cushions are typically covered with fabrics that repel moisture and resist fading in sunlight.

Make Sure That the Seat Cushions Coordinate

The best way to have coordinating wicker furniture sets is by having matching seat cushions. When someone buys different pieces of wicker outdoor furniture at garage sales, the items won’t look like a set unless there are matching seat cushions. By measuring all of the benches, chairs and sofas, it is possible to find cushions that coordinate to create an attractive ambience on a home’s lawn or deck.
