Upholstery foam is the most common stuffing material used today. It’s available in several densities which determine the grade and quality of the foam. The higher the number, the better the quality.
If the foam in your sofa cushions is not up to the task, it can start to disintegrate and lose its rebound-ability in a short time. The sagging cushions can make the whole piece of furniture appear old and tired and make it very uncomfortable for sitting. Replacing the foam is a task a DIY-err can face with confidence when armed with some couch cushion foam know-how. TIRED OF YOUR SAD-LOOKING COUCH? GIVE IT A TOUCH UP! With these high quality, premium upholstery foam cushions, you can easily replace your old foam while retaining your much-loved couch! Made of polyurethane foam and available in 3 different densities, you get a foam with the perfect amount of cushioning and stiffness. Each foam cushion would hold its firmness for 3-7 years, depending on the density and the usage. FOAM PACKAGES NEED TO BE OPENED IMMEDIATELY ONCE YOU RECEIVE THE PACKAGE.

Older cushions tend to spread or flatten out over time and may throw off measurements
Remember not to flatten or press your cushions down while measuring
Make sure to measure seam to seam, not edge to edge
Whether it's for a patio chair, bar stool or other seat, your custom seat cushions will be made to your dimensions. Follow these steps to ensure a proper fit for your custom cushion.
Sometimes, over the years well-worn cushions become misshapen. It is strongly recommended that you measure your existing piece of furniture or space. DO NOT measure the old cushion.
Use a firm tape measure rather than a flexible measuring tape
Keep in mind that when ordering, you will need to round up or round down to the nearest ½ inch.
If you are also ordering a back cushion for your furniture: Make sure to subtract the thickness of the seat cushion from the height of your furniture's back dimension, or the back cushion will be taller than the back support when put into position.
