Refill Dad's Favorite Chair This Father's Day
Dads work hard, and when they come home, they often enjoy relaxing in their favorite chair. Over the years, these thrones can take a lot of trauma: nacho cheese sauce on the armrest, spilled beverages on the seat and cushions that have seen better days! What else could you do for the Dad who has it all than refilling the cushion on his favorite chair for Father's Day? There are all kinds of different fillings, but our team will help you figure out what will work best for your pop's favorite spot whether it's a sofa, loveseat or a recliner.
When to Restuff
If your chair or sofa looks like it's a little lopsided, then it's a safe bet that you need to make some updates. Feeling a hard edge or wood under your arms or behind your knees? Padding breaks down over time and can pack into corners in an odd way. No matter how much you try to shove it back into place, sitting patterns over a period of years will cause the structure of the filling to shift and can leave you with a painful seat that no longer supports your body in a way that's comfortable.
Types of Filling
The type of filling you'll need for your project depends on what you currently have. Feathers, foam and fibers all offer their benefits, but re-stuffing a piece of furniture yourself may be a bigger job than you bargained for. To refill a cushion or chair yourself, you'll need some basic tools as you'll need to pull apart the frame or cut the material covering your furniture. Any time you're using scissors on your furniture, there's a potential that you'll cause more harm than good. If you have any questions, leave this work to the professionals at Cushion World! Here are some of the key types of filling that you might encounter:
Foam with Feather Wrap: Putting together these two versatile fillings allows you to get the support of foam, wrapped in the softness of feathers -- perhaps the best of both worlds! Be aware that some people are allergic to feathers, so always ask before you go this route.
Foam with Dacron
Wrap: Need a softer alternative for someone with allergies? A Dacron wrap is very popular and allows for a comfortable sinking feeling as you sit down.
High-density Polyurethane: Cushions can be tailored to be softer or firmer, depending on the type of foam.
Memory Foam: Softens when the foam and a person's body heat interact, allowing it to mold into a particular shape for extreme comfort.
Foam Blends: Similar to materials found in foam mattresses. This material can have different densities (soft, medium and firm) or you can create a firm core with a memory foam topper. The options are unlimited!
You don't have to spend a fortune to provide your Dad with an amazing Father's Day gift that he'll remember every time he sits down to watch television or enjoy family time. Visit the professionals at Cushion World to learn more about your options and get Dad the best gift ever this Father's Day!
