Reasons Foam is Ideal for Seats and Cushions
Soft Yet Durable
Foam is an ideal material for seats because it is soft enough to provide cushioning and comfort while durable enough to last for years to come. It can be counted on to provide a comfortable experience even in high traffic areas where seats see lots of use.
Tailorable to Your Specific Needs
We carry foam in a variety of types and firmnesses so you can find the perfect solution for your application. Whether you are looking for a luxurious sofa cushion, a sturdy boat seat, or a quick-drying patio cushion, there is a type of foam for every need.
Affordable While Maintaining High Quality
When choosing the right material for your needs, you want something that is long lasting and high performing without costing a small fortune. Foam is the perfect solution for those on a budget but unwilling to sacrifice on overall quality.
Custom Seat Cushions
When it comes to finding the best solution for your seating needs, foam is the leading choice for several reasons. It offers superior comfort, support, and durability which makes it a smart investment for both residential and commercial needs. When choosing foam inserts for residential purposes, our selection of seat cushion foam has everything needed for a reliable solution.
Since not all seating is created in a uniform shape with standard dimensions, we offer custom cut foam cushions in a variety of options. While the shapes we offer are the most commonly seen shapes in residential furniture, such as L shaped, T shaped, circle, window, and more, we understand the need for custom measurements to fit the exact needs of your furniture. Our team is highly skilled in creating foam cushions within the desired specifications to ensure an accurate product dimension.
Outdoor Foam Seats
While foam is one of the most durable materials available for seating, outdoor areas can be tough on seating solutions. With our innovative Dryfast foam for outdoor seating, cushions are made to dry faster than average foam to avoid any issues. Designed with larger cells within the foam of the seat cushion to ensure proper airflow, these outdoor foam seats dry faster than average seating so issues such as mildew or seats taking a long time to dry are a worry of the past. Made with antimicrobial properties, these seat cushions won't harbor bacteria or microorganisms for a seating solution safe enough for the comfort of your family. While other outdoor foams may hold the water, and absorb it for a heavy cushion that takes a long time to dry, our Dryfast seat cushion foam eliminates that unpleasant scenario altogether.

This foam is a firm option that is made to drain water and dry quickly. Since it has these capabilities, it is great for patios, pools, boats and other outdoor cushioning applications. It has a general lifespan of 5-8 years.
How thick should upholstery foam be?
The dimensions of a foam insert will depend on the size of the cover it is being put into. It is important keep in mind that thickness is related to the firmness of a cushion. Typically, the thicker the cushion is, the firmer it will feel.
What is the best foam density for a sofa?
The most common foam densities for sofa cushions range from 1.8lbs/ft³ to 2.8lbs/ft³. The higher density foams last longer, and they tend to be more durable than the lower density foams. The best density choice for you depends on how long you want the foam to last and how often it will be used.
Is memory foam good for sofas?
Although memory foam offers great advantages as a mattress topper, it is not recommended for use as a cushion due to the lack of support it provides on its own. Memory foam can sometimes be used as a layer on top of a thicker, firmer base to provide some extra comfort.
How long will 1.8 density cushions last?
A foam with a 1.8 density generally lasts for around 5-7 years. The longevity of a foam piece can vary depending on frequency of use and the build of the people using the cushions. If the cushion is being used more often, or the people using it have a larger build, it may not last quite as long.
Can I replace the foam in my couch cushions?
Replacing foam in couch cushions is easier than it sounds! The choice to change foam usually depends on personal preference. Some people prefer a firmer cushion, while others like something softer. The most common reason to change foam is to refresh your furniture by replacing the old, sagging inserts.
How do you fix a sagging couch cushion?
There are a few ways to give new life to a sagging couch cushion. For a quick, simple fix, you can wrap an old cushion insert with Dacron. This thin material will give your cushion a fuller, more rounded look to temporarily refresh a droopy cushion. Many times, however, older inserts are beyond redemption. For a more long term solution, full foam replacement is often necessary.
How do I keep my couch cushions from sinking?
When a cushion is getting older or is used frequently, it can begin to sink. To prevent this from happening, many people will add a firm piece of foam under the cushions to give it that extra lift. If it makes sense, you can also rotate or flip your cushions to extend their life.
How can I make my couch cushions firmer?
To firm up a softer cushion, some people will place a firmer piece of foam underneath it to provide additional support. The best way to firm up a soft cushion is to replace the old foam with a firmer piece altogether. Full replacement is best if you want to extend the life of your cushion.
How much does it cost to re-cushion a couch?
The cost to refresh a couch can depend on the foam’s longevity, firmness and size. Replacing couch cushions, however, is usually more affordable than buying new furniture. It is also a small undertaking, even with minimal DIY experience.
