Furniture and Accessory Cover Tips

As promised, here is our outdoor furniture and accessory covers buying guide that will help you understand what you need to look for when choosing the best and correct cover for your needs.

Cover Sizes

There are so many different dimensions to cover, and there are many cover sizes to choose from. It is imperative that you measure your furniture and buy the cover that fits it best.

Did you know that most people don’t measure their outdoor furniture?

Well that’s true, and even when they do decide to measure them, they don’t measure them in groups, but as single units.

Here is bonus tip: clump your furniture together, such as tables and chairs, or stack chairs, and then measure. This will save you from buying too many covers, as well as save you a lot of time and space.

We also suggest you check with your manufacturer; whether they have a special cover designed specifically for their furniture, you will be surprised to find that most outdoor furniture manufacturers take the time to produce furniture covers for special items.

However, these covers tend to be expensive, so if you are on a limited budget, measure and buy from one of these best outdoor furniture covers reviewed items

Waterproof vs. Water resistant

Double and triple check the wording. Waterproof means that water will not seep through the cover even when a tidal wave covers it, while water-resistant means that it will last for a while before allowing water through.

The best materials are a combination of woven fabrics and PVC coatings. Some layered covers will have fabric on the outside for “beauty” but will have a full solid PVC lining to prevent water seepage.

Another factor to consider is cracking; the best covers are layered, this prevents cracking in any one layer. Cracking is a sign of poor materials, usually succumbing to a combination of UV light and temperature changes.

Breathing Covers

There are some methods to allow covers to “breathe,” breathing is important to reduce the chance of accumulating moisture from humidity. Humidity will occur even in the coldest climates; this is not a tropical phenomenon. The process is where water accumulates around the covered furniture; the covered furniture provides a “greenhouse” effect.

The closed space will allow the water to evaporate inside the cover, and this produces humidity that accumulates into moisture that settles on the surfaces of the furniture. Ample vents will remove this humidity, reducing the accumulation of moisture and securing your furniture from mold and other water-related issues.

Soft Lining

Make sure that the inner cover lining is a soft material; some wooden surfaces can scratch from hard plastics. The same goes for appliances, make sure that the appliance cover comes with a soft lining, in some instances fleece.

Securing against Wind

Apart from rain, the wind is a major consideration. You can get massive ballooning that lifts the cover off the furniture exposing it to the environment. If you don’t check your furniture regularly, you might end up finding it uncovered for days. A good tie down and a leg securing system is imperative to secure against ballooning, so too do air vents help against this phenomenon.
