It goes without saying that with the coronavirus pandemic, people are spending more time at home and enjoying their outdoor living spaces more than ever. In fact, people have really taken the time to invest in their homes and yards, as it helps to fill in the time while social distancing.
After investing in stunning patio furniture and the time to create the perfect setup for your outdoor living area, the last thing you want is faded upholstery, rusted metal or weathered wood to ruin the look. Protect your investment and enjoy backyard cookouts and late-night conversations for years to come with patio furniture coverings.
Not quite sure where to start? No problem. Our team of outdoor furniture experts have put together an overview of why and how you can protect your furniture below!
Advantages of Covering Patio Furniture
Outdoor furniture may be designed to live outside the protection of your home, but that doesn’t mean it’s completely protected from weather and wear. Daily exposure to sunlight, strong winds and moisture can take its toll on uncovered furniture. Here are just a few common issues you may experience if you leave your outdoor furniture uncovered – especially in the North Carolina climate:
• Rotten wood
• Faded upholstery
• Cracked plastic
• Soggy seats
• Corroded metal
There’s nothing worse than a soggy seat. The morning dew, a light drizzle or a complete downpour can all leave your padded outdoor furniture wet. If your patio is in the shade, it may not completely dry out throughout the day, leaving you with furniture you’re unable to use comfortably. Covering your furniture prevents this uncomfortable situation altogether.
A cover is made of durable material that’s designed to repel water and prevent UV damage. Padded covers also provide scratch and chip protection in the event of hail, small falling branches or other windblown debris.
Short-term and long-term furniture coverings prevent these issues and give you a cozy seat whenever you need it. Whether you’re covering your daily backyard gathering area or your summertime patio table, find the covering options that fit conveniently and prevent these common issues.
Furniture Covering Options
Whether you’ve just purchased new furniture or you’re looking to protect your existing outdoor setup, we recommend selecting covers with these features to get the most out of your investment:
• Waterproof material
• Custom size
• Breathable design
• Soft, scratch-resistant interior
A one-size-fits-all design may not have the proper dimensions or you may have difficulties keeping it properly tied down. Select a cover that specifically goes with your outdoor set or purchase a cover based on its dimensions.
