Five Ways to Use Upholstery Foam to Revamp Your Home

Upholstery foam is a flexible polyurethane foam that comes in many different densities and thicknesses. Upholstery foam is versatile, lightweight, and durable. The most important property of upholstery foam is its density, and the higher the density of the foam, the more resistant it is to wear and tear.

Over the years, different types and grades of foam have been developed, each suitable for a variety of different applications and upholstery projects around your home.

1. Upholstery foam can give your sofa a new lease of life

Has your sofa started to look a bit tired and have the cushions started to sag? You might be thinking it is time to replace your sofa, but what if we tell you that there is a much more cost-effective alternative. You could save money and time by giving your sofa a little TLC and getting new foam inserts for your seat and back cushions.

With high-quality foam cut to perfectly fit your existing cushion covers, you can easily enhance the look and comfort of your old settee.

2. Use foam to create a comfy window seat

Whether you live in a property with big bay windows or you have a little nook by one of your windows, window seating is the perfect solution to make the most of that space. Create the perfect spot to curl up with a book or to enjoy some peace and quiet with a good cup of tea.

As window seating comes in many shapes and sizes, ordering a custom-made seat foam cushion to your required level of firmness is easy and hassle-free. Foam Superstore offers an end-to-end service, where you can even have a bespoke window cushion cover handcrafted to your exact specification, with a choice of over 500 fabrics to ensure the final product matches the rest of your décor.

3. Bring your chair and bench seating cushions back to life with upholstery foam

Are your chair seats looking worn down? Bespoke replacement foam cushions can breathe new life into your old dining room chairs or kitchen benches.

If you have any solid wooden seats and you are looking to make them a bit more comfortable, then new foam seat pads are just what you need, as upholstery foam comes in a variety of grades offering different levels of firmness.

4. Use upholstery foam for outdoor garden and patio furniture

With BBQ season just around the corner, it’s time to dust out the garden furniture and get it in shape for the summer. Give your outdoor furniture a beautiful new look with bespoke high density foam cushions. Long-lasting and comfortable, foam is the ideal choice of filling for patio furniture, garden cushions, sunbed mattresses and many other outdoor seating solutions.

5. Make your bed comfortable again with a foam mattress topper

Is your mattress not as comfortable as it once was? There is nothing more important than getting a good night sleep and waking up refreshed. A foam mattress topper can add another level of comfort and support to your mattress. A mattress topper is not only an affordable alternative to buying a new mattress, but it can also help extend the lifespan of your existing underlying mattress.
