Garden Furniture Outdoor Bench Cushion Buyer’s Guide
A bench is a garden staple but if you’re going to appreciate it in all its glory, you need the best outdoor bench cushions. There’s a huge range on the market, but choosing the most comfortable and long lasting cushions can be tricky. Outdoor cushions need to be durable, weather resistant and comfortable to sit on. Here’s what to look for.
Bench cushions are available in a range of designs and colours to suit any garden. Thick handmade cushions will be more expensive but comfortable, while cheaper cushions may be easier to care for but basic in design.
Garden benches aren’t the most comfortable of furniture, but a comfortable cushion can make them a lot nicer to sit on. Look for a thick foam or polyester cushion that won’t flatten over time.
Great quality fabric is essential, as this will ensure your cushion lasts for longer. Go for a cushion that’s either water resistant or fully waterproof like the iStyle Mode Outdoor Bench Cushion, as well as one that won’t fade in bright sunlight. Most cushions will need to be brought inside during heavy rainstorms.
Ease of Cleaning
Machine washable cushions are easy to care for, but hand made cushions like Pillow Perfect Loveseat Cushion may need to be spot cleaned and air dried. If you’re expecting a few spillages (for example if you have kids around!) a machine washable cushion is essential.
A good outdoor bench cushion can add a lot to the look of your garden, as well as providing you with a comfortable spot to sit and read. The Gardenista Garden Bench Pad is our top choice, thanks to the lightweight design, ease of cleaning and range of bright colours available.
