Purchasing outdoor furniture can be a tricky, sometimes overly complicated process. You have to take in a multitude of considerations: your climate, how much use it’s going to see, and how much you’re willing to spend. Fortunately, you can cover your bases (and your furniture!) easily by investing in slipcovers for outdoor furniture. These covers help protect the furniture’s base material and extend its lifespan by many years. Whether you’re looking to spruce up old outdoor furniture or are simply interested in saving money without sacrificing quality, there’s a slipcover material and design out there for you. Let’s walk through those considerations.
Patio furniture needs to be able to withstand whatever Mother Nature throws at it. If you live in an area that experiences heavy rainfall, you’ll want to choose couch slipcovers that are waterproof, or incredibly water resistant. Tightly woven fabric, such as denim, is particularly good at this endeavor. Fortunately for you, there is also a type of fabric known simply as ‘outdoor’ — it resists stains, damage, and water, all at once. However, if you live in a sunny region that hardly ever sees a drop of rain, you might want to consider a lightweight and breathable cotton fabric.
Extent Of Use
Are you going to be throwing parties every evening, or casually lounging every once in a while? Obviously, durable material is desired for constant use, while something more simple and comfortable such as synthetic suede can be used if you’re outdoor furniture is hardly going to be touched.
Here’s where you’ll always win! While you may have to spend exorbitant fees on the material of the furniture itself if you’re electing not to use slipcovers for outdoor furniture, covers — whether they’re patio furniture cushion covers or outdoor twin mattress covers — you will be spending less. Always. Best of all, you won’t be settling for anything cheap or unattractive: high quality slipcovers for outdoor furniture are still going to be less expensive than the furniture itself.
Now that you have all the information you need, it’s time to explore the options available at your fingertips! Work your way down until you find a slipcover that is as practical for your needs as it is beautiful.
