Patio furniture such as bench or sofa can normally accommodate 1-3 cushions depending on its size. Therefore, if you have a complete sofa or bench set, you might need around 5-6 cushions. Now, if you already have this number, do you think it is enough? For a start, the answer might be yes. However, in the long run, you will just find out that you need more than 6 patio furniture cushions. If you want to know the reasons, read on and find out why.
First of all, these cushions are exposed to the heat of the sun and some other environmental risks. If it is placed there for more than 5 months, expect that they won’t look as great as they were the moment you’ve bought them. This is the main reason why there is a need for you to buy many sets of cushions; you have to alternate the use for at least once in every quarter or more often than that. This will allow you to extend the life of your cushions. It would be better if you have at least 3-4 sets. You can play with the designs if you want. Just keep the others first and make use of what you have there. Yet, don’t make changing as often as daily. It will still forfeit the purpose. Just check your cushions from time to time, and if you feel that there is a need to really change them, go ahead and do it.
Finally, even if you don’t need to change them yet since they are still usable, and some unwanted incidents took place, damaging these cushions, at least you have spare cushions to place in there right away. You need not to purchase all these cushions at once. Each time you have some money to spare, you can buy one set. Just make it a habit, and you will definitely have a lot in your collection.
The same thing applies for your round chair cushion especially if it is placed outdoors.
