A quick and easy way to spruce up the outdoor area of your home is by picking up a few new patio chair cushions. This article will give a brief primer on what to look for when redecorating your deck chairs, and also a bit of what’s out there in the marketplace.
There really is no reason to leave the furniture on your patio exposed all night when you are closed. Also, it is just silly to allow it to be drenched with rain on those days when the patio does not even get opened. Outdoor furniture is made to enjoy outside, but it is not designed to be exposed to environmental elements 24 hours per day.
Swiffer Wet Jet. This thing is AWESOME. It gets up dirt quicker than I used to be able to fill a mop bucket. I use it for spills and for my weekly mopping. Occasionally, I scrub the floors with a scrub brush, but for the most part, I use the Wet Jet. All you have to do is put a clean pad on it, and insert the cleaner bottle and batteries. Press the trigger to release the solution, then mop over it. The solutions have a nice, clean smell and they dissolve dirt fast. The solutions and pads can be a little expensive, depending on how often you mop, but there are often coupons out for them. The ease of using the Wet Jet as well as it’s cleaning power make it worth the extra money.
If you have a table with a set of chairs, push all the chairs in before you start to measure. First, measure from the ground to the top of the chair. Then measure the width and length of the table from the back of the chair to the back of the chair on the other side. Make sure the legs don’t stick out farther than the back. If they do, factor that into your measurement.
Also be on the lookout for ties in the cushion. These are helpful for one reason: so that when you sit down on your Patio furniture you don’t go scooting off of it! With this feature you’ll be able to harness chair to cushion, and you will have a much more solid seating arrangement. Another benefit of the ties is that they will keep your new patio cushions from being blown away by the wind, whether you live in the desert or the stormy Northeast or even Tornado Alley, this is not a small thing to consider. You do not want to lose your seat, so to speak!
Can it protect against the sun, high winds, insects and the rain? Not all of these factors may be important to you but generally it is a good idea to know what you want before you go shopping for an awning. For example, do you want an awning which will protect you from insects whilst eating outside? Many awnings come with mesh which stop insects from getting inside and that allows you to eat in peace.
