Measuring Patio Cushions

The first step in selecting cushions that will fit your patio furniture is to take proper measurements. You can measure your existing cushions or the patio furniture itself. Once you have taken the measurements, you should be able to easily find the replacement cushions that you need.

Measurements presented on our site: Width x Depth x Height
  Length x Width x Height x Hinge/Break

Important Tips

  • Older cushions tend to spread or flatten out over time and may throw off measurements
  • Remember not to flatten or press your cushions down while measuring
  • Make sure to measure seam to seam, not edge to edge
