Nothing can make your sofa feel more uncomfortable than worn out cushion foam. When the foam starts to wear down, you’re left with a sofa that is lumpy, unattractive and uncomfortable. Many people consider this a sign to throw out their sofa and buy something new. This doesn’t have to be the case, as there’s a good chance that the frame of your sofa is fine.
All you need to do is purchase new foam to insert into your sofa cushions and it will look and feel as good as new. So how do you know when to replace the foam in your cushions or when it’s time for a new couch? Here are a few things to consider:
Check out the springs and frame of the sofa. If the springs still have a lot of bounce to them and the frame is in good shape, you’ll know that your sofa can feel great by replacing the foam in your cushions. However, if there are structural problems with the frame or springs in your couch, it’s time to consider a replacement.
Get the right quality foam for your needs. The type of foam cushion that you need will depend on how it is being used. Seat cushions will get a lot more wear and tear than back cushions and will need to be made from a relatively firm material that bounces back quickly.
How long will you have your sofa? If you are thinking about replacing your sofa within a few years, it might not make sense to purchase foam that is expected to last for 10 years. However, you’ll want higher quality foam for sofas that are intended to last for years – or decades – to come.
