They are wonderful for adding a cozy layer to your space (just like my favorite indoor outdoor rugs) and they can bring in such cheerful color and texture. No matter what style of furniture you’re working with, cute new pillows are sure to breathe new life into your space!
As you may already know, I’m a big fan of pillow covers for changing up the look of your home. They store easily, and they’re fun to change out with the seasons to completely restyle any space.

Why You’ll Love Them
- Choose appropriate outdoor pillow inserts, filled with soft polyfill or foam that is meant to dry quickly. This is no place for down feathers!
- Indoor pillows can be treated to be used outdoors. However, since there are so many outdoor pillows available from your favorite retailers these days, it’s not necessary!
- If you decide to attempt to waterproof your indoor pillows, use a product like Scotchgard. Keep in mind that the treatment process is only temporary (you will need to retreat at least once a year), and you’ll always use more spray than you think!
- Any stains can be treated with Folex, just like your indoor fabrics. However, always be sure to test an inconspicuous spot first.
Frequently Asked Questions
Be sure to specificially choose pillows and inserts that are meant for outdoor living. They will be labeled as such, with features that are noted as water resistant or repellant, mildew resisitant, and fade resistant.
If you live in a particularly windy climate, this can be difficult. The best option is often to store your outdoor pillows in a deck box when not in use. You can also add bows to your throw pillows, attaching them to the furniture in a more secure fashion.
