1) Clean Existing Cushions and Covers
If you want to give your conservatory furniture an instant refresh, cleaning the existing cushions and covers is a great place to start.
Take a look at our 5 Tips for Washing Conservatory Furniture Cushions article for an in-depth guide.
Start by removing the cushions and covers from your furniture and brushing off any loose dirt and debris. Next, inspect them for any visible signs of damage such as tears, fraying, or worn spots. If any repairs are needed, you’ll need to address them before you start cleaning.
Once you’ve inspected and addressed any damages, you can begin cleaning the cushions and covers. Depending on the material, you may be able to spot clean using a mild detergent and warm water.
If not, your best option is to wash them on a gentle cycle in the washing machine. When they’re done, hang them up to dry completely before putting them back on your furniture. This will help them last longer and keep your furniture looking refreshed and stylish.
2) Reupholster Existing Furniture
Reupholstering your conservatory furniture is one of the most cost effective ways to make it look new again. Reupholstering can be a bit of a challenge, but if you’re willing to put in the work, you can easily revamp your furniture without spending a fortune.
The first step to reupholstering is to take off the existing fabric from your furniture. You’ll need to do this carefully so as not to damage the underlying foam.
Once the fabric is removed, inspect the foam to make sure it is still in good condition and will support the new upholstery.
Once you’ve assessed that everything is in order, you’ll need to decide on a fabric for your new upholstery.
This is where you get to have some fun – there are so many different types of fabrics available, so take your time and find something that fits your style. Choose something that will be durable enough to withstand wear and tear but still be comfortable for lounging around.
Once you’ve chosen the fabric, it’s time to cut and fit it to the furniture. Cut the fabric large enough so that it can be tucked and pleated into place on the frame of the furniture.
Then begin tucking the fabric into the crevices of the frame. Use upholstery pins or staples to secure it in place.
Finally, add some finishing touches such as buttons, tassels, or trim to really make your furniture look unique and give it a polished look. And voila – you’re done! Now sit back and enjoy your new conservatory furniture.
3) Add Scatter Cushions and Throws
You can find scatter cushions and throws in a variety of sizes, styles, and colours to suit any design aesthetic.
Choose cushions with a pattern or texture that complements your existing furniture and creates a pleasing visual contrast. You can also mix and match different textures, such as velvets, wools, and cottons, for a unique look.
Throws can also be used to add extra layers of comfort and texture to any furniture piece. From knitted throws to luxuriant faux fur, the options are almost limitless. Simply drape over your existing furniture for an instant transformation.
4) Paint Existing Furniture
Painting existing furniture is an easy way to revamp your conservatory furniture on a budget. It’s a great way to completely change the look and feel of your furniture and add a touch of style to your conservatory.
We’ve written a full guide on Can you Paint Cane Conservatory Furniture? so take a look if your furniture is made from cane.
Before you start painting, make sure you clean the furniture thoroughly and sand it down with fine-grade sandpaper so that the paint will stick to the surface properly.
Once you have prepped the furniture, choose a suitable primer or undercoat before applying the final coat of paint. You can go for a glossy finish or a matte one depending on the look you are trying to achieve. If you have the time, we recommend opting for two coats of paint to get the best coverage.
When selecting the colour of paint, you can choose from a variety of shades. For a modern, contemporary look, why not go for a bright colour such as red or yellow? Or for something more subtle and classic, you could opt for a pastel hue such as pale blue or beige.
Once the paint has dried, you can add extra elements such as stencils or decorative decals to give the furniture some extra personality. You could even add new handles to drawers and cupboards to give them a totally new look. Painting existing furniture is a great way to revamp your conservatory furniture without breaking the bank.
5) Buy a New Set of Furniture Cushions
A new conservatory furniture set can be expensive so why not just replace the cushions.

Obviously this is a more expensive option that cleaning or making your own cushions but if your furniture cushions have been damaged beyond repair then this may be the only option available.
