Important Tips

  • When measuring your outdoor furniture, a good tip is to try to imagine a new patio cushion sitting on your furniture. This helps to know how high and far you would like the cushions to come to the new edges.
  • Back and seat measurements are very important as these will tell you where the hinge will be.
