Summary: Save money by replacing the inner foam, rather than the entire cushion itself.

Purchasing new cushions for your couch can add up to a significant amount of money – especially if you have a large couch and want to match the design. There is another way that you can save the hassle of buying some new couch cushions. This involves purchasing new foam filling for your cushions and replacing them. It may sound like a long and arduous process, but it’s actually quite simple. Here’s how you can go about doing this.

Locating the Zippers

Most couch cushions have zippers attached to the cover so you can easily disassemble it for cleaning purposes. Once you’ve taken out your foam product, notice the shape and texture of it. You’ll want to match this with the new couch foam that you’re purchasing to replicate the same amount of comfort that your previous filling had before it went flat. Or, you can take a different route and purchase a new type of foam, like memory foam for example, and experience a new type of comfort.

Find the Right Foam Manufacturer

Finding a trustworthy foam manufacturer isn’t necessarily the most difficult task, but it’s an important one. If you want to save a significant amount of money, it’s important that you compare prices between foam manufacturers. This way, you could find the best deal available. And, when it comes to your cushion filling, it’s important that you find a legitimate business so you don’t end up being scammed for what it’s worth.
