How to give your old saggy sofa a second lease of life with sofa cushion replacement

Has your old sofa gone saggy and uncomfortable? Invest in replacement sofa cushions to give your beloved furniture a second lease of life.

While an average sofa is said to last around seven years, factors like poor-quality sofa cushions can seriously shorten the lifespan of the furniture. Constantly sitting in the same spot or lounging for long periods of time can cause the sofa cushions to sink in and lose shape. As a result, your sofa becomes incredibly uncomfortable and hard to get out of. It also loses all of its original aesthetic appeal.

But before you rush off to spend money on a brand-new expensive sofa, have you considered replacing your sofa cushions? Replacement cushions and covers are a cost-effective way to bring comfort, style and life back to your old furniture.


If your sofa or armchair has removable cushions, replace the inners with new foam cut to size. Choose a high-density foam for the sofa seat cushions, like Foam Superstore’s Premium Blue Grade 39 which is perfectly suited for high-use items. Choose softer foam for your back cushions, like our Grade 30 foam.

Since you’re replacing your sofa seat inners, you may also consider adding a Dacron wadding wrap and stockinette undercover to help prolong the life of your new cushions and make them a lot easier to fit.

To maintain the spotless look of your sofa, thoroughly clean the fabric or the leather with appropriate cleaning products. Depending on the material, you may want to use a soft cloth and a mild soap and dry with a soft towel, and for leather you can additionally treat the surface with a leather treatment cream or oil.

If your cushions have started to fade or colour is looking patchy, then choose to replace the covers too. With a fantastic choice of upholstery fabrics, from velvet and woollen to faux leather, you’ll be able to find the perfect fabric to match your sofa.
