Foam Frequently Asked Questions

Here at Foam Superstore, we are inundated with questions. You often ask us about the types of foam we offer, as well as how to measure your seat cushions. Check out our handy FAQ section and discover everything you need to know about adding Foam.

What is foam density? 

Although most people think that density and firmness are synonyms, they are actually very different.
Foam density is the specific measurement of masse or weight per unit of volume. This density rating tells you the strength of the foam. It will also correlate with the quality, lifespan and comfort of your sofa or chair.  

What is high-density foam and what can you use it for? 

A high-density foam has a compact structure and it’s known to be incredibly durable to ensure longevity of your furniture. Sofa cushions containing this foam won’t sag. The high-density ability to rapidly return to original shape is one of the main reasons this foam type is so impressive and provides excellent levels of support.
Using high density foam is an excellent choice for upgrading your mattress, bay window seats, sofa, chair cushions, caravan cushions, camping bed or camper van.
If you are unsure which foam density and grade is best for your specific project, don’t hesitate to contact our friendly team for expert advice. 

How to best measure your sofa seats when ordering your foam refill? 

In order to get a perfect fit for your sofa seat foam refill, it’s important to get accurate measurements of the cushions. 

  1. First, measure the length and width of your seat cover. To get the best fit, you need to pull the cover and measure it from corner to corner along the seam. Measure both the front and the back of each cover, in case they vary in width. 
  2. Next, measure the depth of a cushion,  from seam to seam as well. Never measure across the middle of a cushion as it may sometimes have a dented top. 

For more detailed explanation, please read out blog on how to best measure sofa seats. 

Do you only do sofa cushion inners? 

We can cut foam to size for any furniture of any shape and size. We can replace the cushions foam inners on sofas, armchairs, window and bench seats, wheelchairs, campervans, boat seats, garden furniture and even bar, restaurant and public transport seats.
We offer a range of options that provide practicality and long-lasting comfort. 

If I get my sofa cushion inners replaced, can you do my seat covers too? 

Yes, we most certainly do. If your sofa cushions are worn-out, fading and have lost their original comfort, we now offer a bespoke service which allows you to replace both the inners and the covers to bring the comfort and style back into your sofa for years to come. 

How much is it going to cost me to replace the foam on my sofa 

The cost of your sofa foam replacement will depend on the size of the seat cushions, quantity and your choice of foam grade, but we guarantee our foam comes at the most competitive prices on the market. 

I can’t find the right foam shape on your website, can you still replace my cushion inners? 

Yes, we can work from custom templates too. If your seat shape is not displayed, select Custom Shape and you can send us your existing covers or carefully drawn templates and we’ll cut your desired foam to the specified dimensions.
