The Best Outdoor Cushions Covers and Slipcovers

If you already have outdoor cushions but are looking to refresh your space, then outdoor cushion covers or slipcovers are a great affordable solution. Not only do they give you an opportunity to switch up your style, but they can help extend the life of your cushion by offering a barrier between the cushion and day to day elements.

The best cushion covers are durable, fade resistant, and easy to clean. Here are a few of our favorite outdoor cushion cover picks.

As discussed in our article about how to pick the best outdoor cushions and covers, the material matters. One of the most popular fabrics used in outdoor cushions and slipcovers is Sunbrella, which is featured in this Huntington cushion slipcover.

The comfortable, canvas-like finish is water-repellent and dries fast when damp. This slipcover is also UV resistant, preventing fading, and does well against stains. Sunbrella material is great in all different areas and climates. When you need to wash, simply remove the slipcover and throw in your machine.

This option is great for those looking to upgrade their outdoor cushions to a more sleek, neutral finish. This line of cushion slipcovers is also available in more colorful options.

Another option from PotteryBarn, this Sunbrella finish slipcover set is great for square arm sofas. Water repellent, quick-drying, and fade and sun resistant, this is a good option for homeowners looking to cover old, stained cushions, or protect their new ones.

This slip cover is removable with a zipper, and is machine wash friendly.

If you’re looking to go further than cover your cushions alone, this slipcover line is designed to protect your furniture as a whole unit. Available for couches, loveseats, and outdoor chairs, the Sunbrella fabric is soft enough to relax against, but durable enough to stand up against rain and sun.

The covers secure and detach using zipper closures. Unfortunately, this outdoor slipcover is not machine wash friendly. To clean, spot clean using warm water and gentle detergent. Blot spots with a clean, colorfast towel or sponge and allow to dry.

If you’re looking to upgrade your space on a budget, or protect your outdoor furniture without breaking the bank, Amazon has some great options.
