Made of wood, polypropylene or hard plastic to withstand the weather, outdoor furniture chairs are not always the most comfortable when you sit on them for too long, captivated by the stories of your friends you hang out with, in a beautiful corner of your garden. Therefore, our recommendation is to cover them with cushions that you either buy at outdoor patio retailers like Lehrer Fireplace and Patio at where popular Sunbrella fabrics are offered.

DIY cushions are an option as well. The good part is that they are not difficult to make and you can create them from recycled materials. Specifically, it will not cost you anything because you can make them from fabrics and other materials that you have in the house.

First of all, make sure that the materials you use for creating your seat cushions are not synthetic, plastic or ecological leather because they do not allow the skin to breathe and whoever sits on them will sweat very easily and feel quite uncomfortable.

The fabrics must be durable and easy to wash. We recommend, for example, thick cotton, jeans or any other material that meets the above conditions. One of the simplest practices for making a chair cushion is to reuse a pillowcase for the bed, made of a material that can withstand outdoor exposure without breaking easily, and to fill it with soft cloth pieces.
