Has the dream sofa you bought a few years ago already lost its shape and visual appeal?
Replacing your cushion foam is the ideal cost-effective solution to give your sofa a second chance. It will bring back its original style and comfort for years to come.
When substituting your cushion’s old inners with new foam cut to size, it’s important to get the right measurement. This will ensure sofa seats maintain their best shape over time.
If you are looking to get replacement foam, here is an easy guide on how to accurately measure your sofa seat cushions to get the best results.
So how to accurately measure your seat cushions?
In order to get an accurate quote for your foam refill, you need to get the right length, width and depth measurements for your cushions.
It’s always best to measure cushions sizes from the existing covers. Don’t just simply measure the old foam that has changed shape and possibly even size over time.
- Pull the seat cover and measure it from corner to corner along the seam to get the best fit.
- Remember to measure both the front and the back of each cover as some cushions’ forms may vary in width front to back.
- Measure the depth of a cushion, seam to seam as well. If your cushion has a piped edge cover, measure between the piping.
- Never measure across the middle of a cushion as it may have a dented top which could affect your overall measurements.
Measure a seat cushion with an app
You’ve misplaced your tape measure since the last time you used it? That’s not a problem. There is a mobile app that can help you measure the size of your cushion seats.
For instance, iPhone users can use the pre-installed “Measure” augmented reality app to quickly and easily measure their cushion’s dimensions. Google also offers a similar app for Android users.
To measure your cushions, simply open the app, point your camera towards your cushions and select two points to measure the distance in-between.
Got your seats measurements ready? Now, all you’ll have to do is pick the right foam shape and grade and let Foam Superstore make replacing your sofa seats a quick and satisfying experience.
