Important Tips

When measuring your outdoor furniture, a good tip is to try to imagine new, made to measure outdoor cushions 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.
