Why Custom Outdoor Cushions Are Worth the Investment, Milford, Connecticut

From barbecues to casual cocktail parties, the summer is a time for exciting gatherings. It’s no secret that a party requires good company and delicious food, but you’ll also need a comfortable environment. Finding the right pieces for an outdoor space can be tricky since they must withstand sunlight, heat, moisture, and the occasional food stain. Thankfully, custom upholstery allows you to craft cushions that seamlessly blend into your home decor and withstand the elements. To help you find the best functional items for your entertainment area, here are some ways custom work provides high-quality results. 

The Benefits of Custom Outdoor Cushions


Even if you find outdoor accessories for sale, they don’t always complement your interior design aesthetic. If you have a particular color palette or motif in mind, custom upholstery is the best way to achieve your precise vision. If you plan on updating your decor seasonally, your upholsterers can make slipcovers you can easily remove and replace. 


Outdoor cushions require moisture-resistant materials to prevent mildew growth and stains. For upholstery fabrics, the best options are acrylic, vinyl, oilcloth, and wax canvas, which have a waterproof coating that prevents excessive wear and tear due to the elements. The interior padding of the cushions must also be water-resistant to a certain extent, since mold and mildew can form if the foam or fibers retain too much water. Custom work allows you to choose what fabrics are used for your pieces. 

Preservation & Enhancement

Customization can also restore existing furniture. For example, if the inner foam is deteriorating or there are broken or missing springs, an upholstery service will replace them to ensure the cushion is comfortable to use and provides adequate support. If your existing item is flat, they can also improve upon it and make it softer by adding more filling.
