How to Measure for Custom Outdoor Patio Furniture Covers

Get the Right Size Patio Cover Made Simple

You may find that you need Custom Covers to properly fit your outdoor patio furniture and accessories. We can custom make covers for full patio furniture sets, outdoor patio chairs, dining tables with or without umbrellas, BBQ grills, outdoor heaters, and more.

To ensure that your furniture and accessories are fully protected, it is important that you take the proper steps so that you order the correct size cover. Even though the covers you order will fit securely, we recommend that the covers be a little large rather than being too small. This will make it easier to remove and replace the cover and help prevent damage to the cover. If the cover is stretched too tightly, the material may become damaged which would reduce its effectiveness and its lifespan. However, if the cover is way too large, it can flap uncontrollably in the wind and allow rain to build up on the surface. These conditions can also cause damage to the cover and prevent it from adequately protecting furniture and accessories. Accurate measurements will ensure that you receive the best possible covers for your outdoor patio furniture and patio accessories.

You have the option to customize your outdoor patio furniture covers by adding features such as ties, drawstrings, Velcro closures, umbrella holes, elastic hems, and zippers.

Measuring for Chair Covers

  • Measure the height, width, length / depth, and arm height (if the chair has arms).
    • Height: Measure from the ground to the top of the back of the chair.
    • Length / Depth: Measure from front to back.
    • Width: Measure from side to side across the front of the chair.
    • Arm Height: Measure from the ground to the top of the chair arm.
Measuring for Table and Chair Set Covers
  • Place all chairs around and close to the table as possible.
    • Oval or Rectangular Tables: Measure the length of the dining set from the back of one chair across the table to the back of the opposite chair. Then, measure the width across the dining set from the back of one chair to the back of the opposite chair.
    • Round Tables: Find the diameter of the dining set by measuring from the back of one chair across the table to the back of the opposite chair.
    • Height: Measure from the ground to the top of the back of the tallest chair. It is recommended that the cover have a few inches of clearance from the ground.
    • Since you are covering the table and chairs as a set, it is important to remember that these measurements will be greater than the measurement of your table alone.
Measuring for a Chaise Lounge Cover
