Outdoor furniture can often be tricky as it has to balance the features of being able to dry quickly while still maximizing comfort. First of all, outdoor cushions need to be able to drain moisture and liquid from rain and dew quickly and fully. If your outdoor cushions don’t drain properly, they will quickly get moldy or build up mildew. In addition, your outdoor cushions should be just as comfortable as your indoor cushions, despite using materials that drain properly. To properly make comfortable outdoor furniture cushions, you should always use reticulated (also known as dry-fast) foam, which has large “pores” to easily drain rain water and other moisture. While many manufacturers use sub-standard and inexpensive outdoor foam, FoamOrder offers three high-grade levels of outdoor foam comfort (soft, medium, and firm).
A second problem many homeowners experience with outdoor cushions are back cushions that don’t hold their shape and are too fluffy. We recommend using soft outdoor foam for your back cushions, surrounded by a soft quick-draining layer of polyester or dacron batting. If your existing outdoor furniture isn’t comfortable, you can replace your cushions quickly and easily with our high-grade outdoor foam in your preferred firmness. Just select your foam type, enter in the custom dimensions, and your new custom cushions will arrive in just a few weeks.
