Why custom cushions are better than store-bought cushions

The condition of seat cushions is one of the biggest indicators of a sofa’s overall quality. Since you will be reclining on them, it is important to have cushions that are both comfortable and long-lasting. You might also have different priorities when choosing sofa cushions. For example, you might be willing to sacrifice durability for comfort or vice versa. The problem with store-bought cushions is that you have very little control over these cushions’ important characteristics.

If you replaced a store-bought cushion with a custom cushion, you’d have control over the cushion’s exact measurements, its shape, and its degree of softness or hardness. You’d be able to make sure your foam cushion conforms exactly to your furniture’s shape and dimensions, which can be challenging if your furniture has an unusual shape, such as a U or an L. You’d also be able to choose between foam materials such as Super Soft Foam, medium firmness Poly Foam, and dense Lux Foam to find the perfect balance of comfort and durability.

If you’re planning to use the cushions outdoors, you can also choose to make them out of outdoor foam materials such as Dryfast foam. This will ensure that they are not damaged by rainy weather and other sources of moisture. Dryfast is also anti-microbial, which means that damaging fungi such as mold and mildew will have a difficult time growing on the cushions’ surfaces.
