What to Look for in Outdoor Chair Cushions

Posted by Pillow Perfect Inc. | June 23, 2015 | Category: , , |

Outdoor chair cushions come in many styles and patterns. They are sold in mass market retailers, garden shops and by catalog. With so many options, how does one choose? A good thing about all these options is you have choices. These are key things to keep in mind as you shop for outdoor chair cushions.

It is best to avoid inexpensive outdoor chair cushions sold by questionable retailers – those who do not specialize in outdoor furniture or that do not feature a designated outdoor furnishings area. For example, you may not want to purchase a pillow from a specialty food retailer that happens to also sell a few pillows in their catalog.

Instead, rely on the best, most reputable brands for outdoor chair cushions. Why? The outdoor elements – bright sunlight, rain, moisture – combined with wear and tear from sitting, cause outdoor chair cushions to wear faster than other types of cushions or pillows. Also, from the very nature of the product – it being meant to sit on – it will lose its cushioning ability faster in a low-quality product. For reliability, seek a reputable manufacturer to help ensure the outdoor chair cushions you buy will last for many years — not only one season!

While it may seem that the most expensive cushions also should be the most durable, this is not necessarily true. Examine the fabric content, weave and finish helping determine if it will last. Sometimes, items are priced at a premium due to fashion trendiness and high mark-ups versus quality and durability.

With warm weather upon us, look to buy outdoor chair cushions now for the best selection.
