MEASURE

How To Measure My Existing Cushions

  • Replacing your patio cushions is one of the easiest and most cost effective way to give your patio or deck an updated look. To measure your existing cushions simply follow these steps:
  • Lay your patio cushions down on a flat surface
  • Measure the length of the cushion from front to back of the outdoor cushion
  • Measure the width of the cushion from one side to the other. (Please note that you must take care when measuring the width and measure in three separate places, making note of the smallest measurement.)
  • Finally measure the thickness of the patio cushion.
  • Repeat these steps for each cushion that you would like to replace, taking care to note each measurement separately.

How To Measure Furniture For New Patio Cushions

  • Patio furniture cushions are a definite must have to complete the look and feel of your outdoor living area. Perhaps you have purchased a patio set without cushions or maybe even your cushions are so worn that you may not trust their measurements any longer. Measuring your patio furniture will give you the exact size that you may need to purchase outdoor cushions. To accurately measure your furniture follow these steps:
  • Measure the width of the seat at the very front, from end to end. If your piece includes armrests, make sure to measure from the inside of one arm to the other.
  • Measure the width of the seat at the very back, from end to end.
  • Measure the width of the back of the chair itself (at the top) from end to end.
  • Measure the width of the back of the of chair (where the back meets the seat) from end to end.
  • Measure the depth of the seat front the front edge to where the seat meets the back.
  • Measure the height of the back (from the top of the back to where the back meets the seat). This will serve as your break point if you are interested in purchasing hinged cushions.
  • Add the measurements of the back height with the depth of the seat to get your overall height.
  • Repeat these steps for each furniture piece that you would like to order cushions for, taking care to note each measurement separately.

I Have My Measurements – Now What?

  • Finally, once you’ve completed your measurements, you can move on to the fun part: deciding what color and pattern you want for your new cushions. With endless design options, you’re sure to create the cushions that fit your space and style.
  • If you’re inclined to change up the color scheme, choose solid cushions in a shade that will stand the test of time and trends.
  • Balance your new cushions with any patterns you already have in your space; for example, striped cushions might not be the best idea if your space already features bold floral motifs.
  • Don’t be afraid to mix and match colors or patterns when styling cushions. As long as you stick to two coordinating styles to avoid a busy look, mixing it up is fun!
