Easy Way to Cover Outdoor Furniture

Outdoor Patio Furniture Cover

As much as I may want to enjoy my backyard patio, deck, and garden year round, sometimes the weather just gets too cold, or too hot, for comfort. Last year when it was finally time to head for the indoors, I pushed and pulled my patio furniture under my porch and some into my garage.  I can hardly make room for my car so I don’t know what I’m thinking trying to store furniture in the garage too.  There is really no great place for me to store bulky furniture and so each year I watch the rain and snow age it a little more.  By the time I have to buy new furniture because the other is worn out I could have protected it with a cover and saved money in the long run.    Your patio furniture may be weather resistant and able to withstand tough elements like ice, snow, and torrential rains, but you can extend the life of your outdoor furniture by covering each piece with a high quality, durable Outdoor Furniture Cover.  Make sure to buy Protective Covers and  NOT slip covers.  Protective covers are meant to help protect your outdoor furniture and accessories from harsh winter weather. I also found out that these covers are not meant to be form fitting.

In the long run I believe outdoor furniture covers will cover alot more than just my furniture.  They will cover my wallet too because I won’t be shopping for more patio furniture!

    Last year, I bought inexpensive furniture covers from a discount store for my patio furniture, thinking that they would do a fine job. Over the winter, the outside layer of the covers couldn’t take the cold and ended up cracking. When I removed the covers after the winter (or, I should say when I peeled the covers off of the furniture), the fuzzy layer that was supposed to protect the furniture from bumps had stuck to the furniture surfaces — what a mess, and what a waste of money! I had to pay to have the furniture re-finished AND I had to pay for new furniture covers. This time, though, I spent a little extra for much better quality covers. It is worth the extra cost for good covers that don’t ruin the furniture!!

      I did the same thing, Lisa — I bought cheap covers and completely regretted it! That’s why I love these covers so much — they really weren’t that much more expensive than the cheapies, but they last a long time and do the job they’re supposed to do. Thanks for sharing your experience!
