How to Determine the Correct Foam For Your Couch

 Foam replacement doesn’t have to be difficult.

If you are a homeowner, then you most likely own at least one sofa in either the living room, office, or even bedroom. Furthermore, you’ve probably noticed that your sofa just doesn’t feel the same anymore after repeated use. Well, if you’re not sinking in and bruising your tailbone on a rigid piece of wood, then it’s definitely not due to the frame being broken. That leaves one core element that needs fixing – the sofa foam.

If you’re looking into sofa foam replacement, you’ll need to “gut” your couch. No, this doesn’t mean that you have to slice it open and sew it back. Instead, your couch should have an opening in which you can easily replace the sofa foam inside. The first thing that you’ll need to do is to take apart all the pieces that make up the sofa – the back cushions, bottom cushions, and others.

Purchasing the Correct Foam

Then, determine what type of sofa foam you’ll want inside. Look at the various online foam manufacturers online to get an idea of what type of foam works best for a certain application. Once you’ve figured that out, you’ll have to carefully measure the pieces so that they fit inside the cushions accordingly. If you’re purchasing the foam in blocks, an electric saw can be used to cut it down to the correct size. If you’re accurate with your measurements, you can also order precut blocks – just measure the old foam blocks and enter the dimensions into the order foam.
