Revitalizing Your Couch Cushions with Foam Inserts

Blog provided by The Foam Factory

Couch filling won’t always hold its shape after years of use. If you use foam couch cushions, the foam’s structure will start to break down after heavy use over a long period of time. This is why it’s recommended to replace your couch cushions after several years.

All couch cushions will eventually become saggy and lumpy. This can result in aches and pains due to inadequate support and comfort when you sit down. If your cushions cannot spread your weight evenly, they are not doing what they were made for. However, if your cushions are in relatively good shape, you may feel like it’s too early to buy a cushion replacement.

If you just need a bit of extra support for comfort, you should consider getting foam inserts for your couch rather than replacing the whole cushion. If you measure your couch cushions, you’ll have a better idea of how many inches of new foam you’ll need. If you enjoy DIY projects, you can cut the foam inserts yourself with an electric knife or a carving knife. You may also need fiberfill wrap to smooth out the edges of your foam inserts.
