While shopping for outdoor spaces, our initial thoughts are about the frames’ material and each furniture piece’s size. However, much of the beauty, comfort, and longevity of an outdoor seating collection are achieved through cushions — so we should definitely give them some serious thought.

We’ll tell you everything you need to know about selecting the right cushions and styling your outdoor spaces in the best of form by taking inspiration from the indoors.

1.Brighten the space with colors
Bright colors of cushions breathe new life into outdated or old patio or porch furniture. You can continue a color scheme already existing in the indoor of your house. If your indoor space is designed in a contemporary style, pick neutral-colored cushions or go bold with accent-colored pillows.

2.Style it up
Although it can be tempting, designers don’t suggest choosing one type of cushions for the whole outdoor area. If there is only one type of cushion on every seat around a table setting, you lose a good opportunity to incorporate some texture and depth into your outdoor living space.

You can choose 2 or 3 styles of cushions that you like and purchase a few of each. Avoid restricting yourself to the same shape or sized cushions; either a mixture of rectangles and squares can be a great combination in your outdoor setting.

3.Perfect Placement of cushions
Now in the last step, scatter your rightly selected cushions around different elements of outdoor space. Place them on an angle to break the symmetry of chairs and cushions.

If you have a bench seat or sofa, try using rectangular and square cushions for a more contemporary look. A simple rule that designers follow while adding cushions in an outdoor space is choosing cushions in an odd number for a more eclectic look and an even number for a traditional look.

Adding cushions not only brings style into your outdoor space but also incorporates a sense of comfort and luxury. We hope these tips will spark your interest to the point that you want to redesign your outdoor space. You’ll be amazed to see how you can transform your outdoor space entirely by adding a few beautiful cushions.
