Selecting your backyard or patio replacement cushions can sometimes be a difficult task. With so many homeware stores offering a variety of fabrics, colors, and themes, finding the right one can be overwhelming. Here are some tips on how to choose the right cushions for your space.

Let your surroundings guide your choice. – Look at your surrounding and see what you currently have in it. For example, if you have a plain neutral backdrop and you want to make a bold statement, you could choose a pop of color to differentiate your space from the garden.

Decide on a theme – Themes are great, as they will help you stay focused on what you should and shouldn’t buy. For example, a minimalistic theme will look best with soft neutral shades for your wicker chairs and sofa. If you want something that is shabby-chic, you could look into a light dusty gray with white and light pink throw pillows.

Choose styles you want to emulate – If you want your garden seating to stand out from your indoor space, you should look at themes and colors that are different from your interior. On the other hand, if you’re looking to blend in your outdoor space to your indoor area, try to match your furnishings according to what you currently own.

Comfort – The fabrics and cushioning you choose should be comfortable and suitable for its use. Your selection should change if your space is for lounging, dining or entertaining.
