Here at RSH Décor, we know that you were outdoor spaces are extensions of your home. Whether you have a patio, sunroom, balcony, or deck, it is just as important for these spaces to be as relaxing, comfortable, and inviting as your living room. However, when it comes to furnishing your home’s exterior, comfort isn’t the only factor to consider.
You also want your outdoor spaces to reflect your unique style and personality, and one of the best ways to accomplish that is with custom outdoor cushions.
In this article, we will take a look at a few different aspects of designing custom outdoor cushions, such as patterns, colors, shapes, and materials. So, if you are looking for custom outdoor cushions to create the perfect outdoor hangout, be sure to read to the bottom of this article to get a better understanding of everything you will need to consider.
Designing Custom Outdoor Cushions
In order to design custom outdoor cushions that work perfectly for your furniture, it’s important to first understand all of the details that go into creating these personalized seating options.
Determine the Style of Your Custom Outdoor Cushions
Before you start designing your custom outdoor cushions, you need to know what kind of furniture you’re working with. Whether you are designing your cushions for a patio dining set, rocking chair, wicker chairs and sofa set, a chaise lounge seat, or would simply like to add some custom pillows to your current setup, this will determine how you proceed with designing your custom outdoor cushions.
Take Measurements for Your Custom Outdoor Cushions
It is important to take accurate measurements of your outdoor furniture to get a perfect fit for your custom outdoor cushions. Here’s how to take the correct measurements in just a few simple steps:
- First, measure the depth of your seats, starting from the front edge of the seat to where the seat meets the backrest.
- Next, measure the width of your seats at the front and back. It is important to take both of these measurements because, in some cases, they will not be the same.
- Once you have taken the measurements for your seat cushion, you will need to measure your backrest. Take a measurement from the top to the bottom, then subtract the depth of your seat cushion from the total measurement. For example, if you are going with a seat cushion that is five inches deep, then the measurement of your back cushion will be the total height of the backrest minus five inches.
Choose a Material for Your Custom Outdoor Cushions
Here at RSH Décor, we create custom outdoor cushions from two types of material – polyester and acrylic. While both materials are perfectly suitable for outdoor use, each has its own qualities that tend to perform better under specific circumstances.
Polyester – Our polyester fabric is a highly resistant material that provides excellent durability in many outdoor seating setups. Polyester is a stain and mildew-resistant material that keeps its color for many years without fading. However, it’s important to note that polyester performs best in spaces that do not receive direct sunlight throughout the day, making it perfect for covered patios, sunrooms, gazebos, and the like. Additionally, to get the most out of your custom outdoor cushions, we recommend storing them when not in use.
If you are looking to add some colors and patterns to your outdoor areas, then polyester is a versatile and affordable choice that can fit any style and budget. We carry an extensive selection of polyester fabrics, so we are sure you’ll find something you will enjoy!
Acrylic – If performance and longevity are important to you when it comes to your custom outdoor cushions, then we highly recommend acrylic fabric for your outdoor spaces. Acrylics are some of the most popular fabrics used in outdoor cushions and pillows due to their color-fast dyes and manufacturer guarantees. Depending on the manufacturer, our acrylic fabrics are guaranteed to last anywhere from five to ten years.
Acrylic fabrics get their bold colors from solution-dyed yarn woven into the acrylic fibers, ensuring that their patterns will stay bright and sharp throughout the lifetime of your acrylic custom outdoor cushions. Additionally, acrylic fabric is water-resistant, durable, and surprisingly soft, which means it will provide you with comfortable seating for many years to come.
Furthermore, acrylic fabrics are easy to clean. To clean your acrylic custom outdoor cushions, simply apply a cleaning product that is suggested by your manufacturer and gently scrub your cushions to remove any stains. After thoroughly scrubbing your cushions, rinse them with a garden hose until all of your cleaning solution has been removed. Once they are fully rinsed, simply allow them to dry in a sunny area.
Pick a Pattern for Your Custom Outdoor Cushions
Choosing the perfect color and pattern for your custom outdoor cushions is all about harmonizing your personal style with your outdoor surroundings. Start by considering the existing color scheme of your outdoor space, such as the colors in your landscaping and architectural elements.
If you are trying to create a calm and relaxing atmosphere, you might want to go for neutral colors like beige or gray. However, it’s best to go with bold colors like teal, coral, or yellow for a vibrant and inviting feel.
Also, it’s always a good idea to try out some fabric swatches in your outdoor environment to see how they look in different lighting conditions. So remember to visit our website to request a set of free fabric samples!
When it comes to polyester fabrics, you can choose from floral, paisley, and Bohemian-style patterns to solid colors, stripes, and plaids. Additionally, you can mix and match by adding decorative pillows to your custom outdoor cushions.
On the other hand, if you decide to go with acrylic fabrics, you can choose from a wide range of solid colors, stripes, and plaid designs.
