Outdoor furniture covers come in all shapes and sizes. You want to find a patio furniture cover
with a bit of heft to prevent slipping over time and avoid blowing away in the wind. Waterproof patio
furniture covers also help keep your patio furniture from becoming saturated over time due to accumulated
moisture seeping through to the cushions and other surfaces. The use of a cover helps keep your upholstered
items free from mold and provides the best results for maintaining appearance.
Bench covers help keep wood and metal benches in superior shape for decades of use. With both
plastic and canvas options, you can choose your material based on the frequency of use in the off-weather
months. A cover capable of being pressure washed can make the bench accessible as a storage location when
not in use. A simple blast of water can remove salt, potting soil, and any other residue as the bench is
uncovered for a new season.
Furniture covers for chairs are available in a variety of sizes and materials. The best options
provide a high degree of coverage while protecting the chair from all outdoor elements. A fitted option
covers patio furniture with less need for added weight and provides a better seal against the elements.
Suited products can also free you from the need for custom covers by stretching to cover odd-size or highly
Chaise lounge covers
A chaise lounge cover needs to cover the seating area of the chaise fully. If you use a more
extended cover to protect the legs, pick heavily weighted canvas or weighted plastic products to prevent
blowing when the item is stored outside in the wind. A mesh chaise lounge can be covered year-round when not
in use to prevent sun damage to the surface.
Furniture set covers
Many outdoor seating and table sets feature custom covers for an additional charge. Search for your
set and filter the results for cover options to review all of the possibilities.
A custom set covers patio furniture like a glove, and each piece is sewn or molded to fit
particular design elements. When your set does not come with covers, look for a set made for it or find
products for each component, such as a set that covers patio furniture seating arrangements and a second
cover for the tables.
Glider covers take into account the shape of the gliding swing and cover patio furniture from the
top to the deck level. These are designed to form a custom fit with very little room for air pockets to form
under the cover. Often all-weather covers are neutral looking to keep the patio tidy when the furniture is
free from use. Always try to order a glider cover with free shipping when you purchase your patio furniture
to ensure you can protect it as soon as it arrives.
Loveseat covers get the same treatment as glider options. To search for the perfect set, start your
furniture cover search by looking for a fitted cover in your loveseat's dimensions. If the right size is not
available, get the nearest size you can find in an adjustable cover. Snaps or drawstrings are used to
tighten the cover and prevent it from being stripped off in inclement weather. Many loveseat covers are
available with free shipping as part of our customer service guarantee.
Ottoman covers are essential when the ottoman in your furniture set doubles as a storage option for
cushions. Even all-weather cushions for waterproof patio furniture are not immune to damage from long-term
weather exposure. Using a tight-fitting cover over your ottoman keeps it and any stored components free from
direct moisture. It takes into account the possibility of direct wind stripping a looser drape.
Much like a loveseat cover, sofa covers take into account different design elements and are
available in a size range that covers patio furniture dimensions completely. When you can’t buy
the exact size, opt for a cover that is adjustable and be sure to secure it snugly to ensure your furniture
is protected during the rainy season and hot summer days. Look for free shipping options to maximize your
Table and umbrella covers
Wood, steel, and plastic tables and umbrellas can all eventually succumb to the elements. If they
are not completely ruined, they can be sun-bleached or start to warp over time. Protect your patio furniture
with heavy-duty furniture covers that provide a waterproof element to keep your furniture looking like news.
When meeting the needs of your table, sort your order options by table or umbrella type, and find
the appropriate size. Review the products and order an adjustable option if the perfect measurements are not
available. Look for weighted canvas or plastic covers to prevent flapping and the possible loss of your
cover in high wind.
Waterproof outdoor furniture covers
A waterproof option covers patio furniture and is designed to repel and shed rainfall. This is
important for items without removal cushions that are susceptible to rusting or warping. By shedding
moisture, your item is not exposed to seepage or prolonged periods of dampness as the cover itself dries or
until it sheds other moisture, such as snow.
Types of patio furniture covers
Patio furniture covers are available in custom measurements for specific furniture sets,
particularly those offered year after year. Try to order a custom set when you shop for patio furniture, as
they are best looking and are frequently not available after the products leave stores.
Next are fitted covers designed for specific items in a range of sizes. These are an excellent
alternative to custom patio furniture covers as they fit snugly.
Adjustable covers are either stretchable or use elastic or snaps to provide additional security and
keep furniture free of exposure to the elements.
Other covers are weighted plastic and weighted canvas that is not adjustable. Small weights help
keep the covers in place, but additional security may be required.
Do I need patio furniture covers?
If you want to protect your new patio furniture for long-term use, furniture covers are a good
How do you cover patio furniture for winter?
Cover your patio furniture snugly for winter to promote smooth shedding of snow on both waterproof
and standard patio furniture covers. Avoid leaving slouching areas on couches and chairs. Instead, create a
taut, gentle slope to promote sliding and brush the covers off periodically if snow starts to accumulate.
Tight covers will also help shed rainfall and prevent covers from blowing free in the wind.
Where do you store patio furniture covers?
When your covers are not needed for a long period of time, use a garden hose or pressure washer to
clean. Allow the covers to dry, and then fold them gently for storage. Some new patio furniture sets include
ottomans, tables, or sofas with a built-in storage compartment for cushions and covers. Otherwise, store the
covers in a plastic bin in the garage or a closet until they are needed.
