Why do your grandparents love sitting outdoors in their rocking chairs? Simple: there is something comforting and relaxing about staying outdoors and observing nature while sitting in a chair that steadily rocks back and forth. To make your outdoor rocking chair more comfortable, some necessary touch ups might be in line.
Most old-timey rocking chairs do not have cushions, as they are usually placed in locations where they are battered by the elements. If you want to breathe new life into your old hard rocking chair, you can simply use rocking chair cushions. Before buying just any cushion, however, you must make sure that the cushion you install will fit perfectly. Make sure to measure the seat and the backrest of the rocking chair; this way, you won’t waste precious time and money for cushions that don’t even fit.
Next, you should choose what kind of fabric works best for your rocking chair. When it comes to outdoor rocking cushions, it’s a good idea to buy those made from 100% spun polyester, 100% Sunbrella Acrylic, or 100% Bella Dura. These materials provide much-needed comfort, are durable and can stand the elements. To keep them spotless, remember wipe them with mild detergent and let them air-dry.
