How to Measure a Chaise Lounge?
There are two ways to measure your chaise lounge. The first is measuring the chaise itself to fit a cover, and the second is measuring for a chaise cushion for your already existing lounge chair.
To measure your chaise lounge height whether outdoor or indoor, you can measure from the top of the chaise to the ground. It is recommended for a cover to be 1-2 inches or 3 to 5 centimeters shorter than the existing furniture to account for breathability.
To measure the depth, you can measure from the deepest side (essentially the entire length of the chaise) from top to bottom. Measure from the front to the back to simplify it. To measure the width of the chaise lounge, you can measure from side to side, left to right.
At the same time, here are the steps to measure for chaise lounge cushions:
First is measuring the width, which is done by measuring the inside of the chaise lounge’s frame, where the arms will be resting, from right to left.
To measure for cushion height, measure the height for recline first. This is done by gauging the length from the bottom of the reclining part to the top of the chair.
Depth is where we measure for the cushion where we will be sitting, and this is done by measuring where the recline stops in the bottom to the foot of your chaise lounge.
