How to Measure > Sofa + Loveseat Covers
Measuring for sofa and loveseat covers is easy, though slightly different than for chairs and chaise lounges. Follow these step-by-step guidelines:
H = Height, determined by measuring from the ground to the top of the back of the furniture.
L = Length, found by measuring your furniture from left to right across the front.
W = Width, calculated by measuring from the back to the front of your furniture.
- Outdoor furniture covers aren't intended to touch the ground so that air can properly circulate underneath the furniture. Don't worry if the cover doesn't come all the way down to the ground.
- If you have a sectional and can't find a cover for it, you might try separating the pieces slightly, measuring them individually, then trying to find a suitable sofa, loveseat, bench or glider cover for each piece.
- Bigger is better, so select an outdoor protective cover size that's slightly larger than your bench, glider, sofa or loveseat dimensions.
