Outdoor Furniture Covers
Creating a nice, outdoor living space is a great way for you to be able to add additional living space to your house which is great for being able to spend time with your family and friends out on the patio or in the backyard. It can also be great when it comes to trying to sell your home, while that additional space doesn't quite count on the square footage, it will definitely excite any potential buyer because they know that the space can be useful for them and their family too.
Decorating your outdoor living space with furniture will allow you to enjoy the space more than you would without any furniture there. But, in addition to buying some nice outdoor furniture, I would also suggest that you buy some nice outdoor furniture covers and cushions that can help you to protect your investment.
Here is some more information about picking and buying an outdoor furniture cover:
Polyester Furniture Covers
When deciding on what type of fabric to use for your furniture covers for outdoor furniture, you'll definitely want to make sure that you pick a fabric that is durable and weather resistance, since you'll be leaving it outside. Various types of weather can definitely affect your furniture and so if the covers are not solid, then you can possibly damage your furniture by exposing it to the elements.
This is where polyester cover come in. They are high quality and also meet the above criteria of being weather resistant and also very durable. It can manipulated easily to be able to provide custom covers, as well as easily stores since it comes in rolls. It is also very easy to wipe down and clean. These types of covers aren't as fashionable and so they should only be used when you are probably not going to be using the furniture for a long time (while you are on vacation, or during the winter months).
Eco-Friendly Outdoor Furniture Covers
Many people these days are becoming more and more concerned about taking care of the environment and using materials that are environmentally friendly, and so when looking at various outdoor furniture covers it is important for me to share with you some of the eco-friendly options that are available.
The key is to find covers that are made in a way that cuts down on the use of harmful products during the manufacturing stage, as well as not creating chemicals (or as few as you can) during production. This definitely is possible.
You can find outdoor patio furniture covers that are made out of recycled materials. Plastic water bottles are a pretty popular material, as is other types of recycled plastics. When buying products, most people don't think of the packaging and containers and boxes that stuff comes in. These can be made out of various materials to help make it eco-friendly as well as printing with inks that are naturally created, such as soy-based inks.
Tips for Choosing Outside Furniture Covers
Here are some great tips to help you out when it comes to finding the right furniture covers for you:
- Be sure to measure your furniture before buying. While something in a store or online might look like it will fit, it is always important to double check and make sure to measure before purchasing something. You want it to fit snug, but not too snug that you won't even be able to take it off and put it on.
- Choosing waterproof materials is important since rain, sprinkles, splashes from a pool and other types of moisture may damage the furniture. Also be sure to look and make sure that it can help to protect your furniture from other weather elements such as frost and other issues related to low temperatures. Not all covers do this, so definitely make sure.
- Covers can sometimes be blown away, so I would suggest finding a type of cover that has straps or pull cords so that they can be secured to your furniture so they are no blown away causing you spend more money, but also exposing your furniture to the elements.
