Finding the Right Solution
Refilling your cushions may seem straightforward, but it's not as simple as you might think. There are many different grades of materials, and if you're not using the right material for your instance, then your cushions will return to their flat state. Upholstery professionals understand the types of fill materials and how they can be effectively used and can make recommendations for your next cushion refilling project.
Filling to Perfection
Cushions truly can make or break your upholstery project, so it's important to consider your personal preference when designing cushion refills. There are a variety of foam densities, all of which cause your cushions to be either soft and cushy or more firm and springy to the touch. Firmness and density are two independent attributes of foam that are important to keep in mind when determining how to refill your cushions. Once the foam is selected, it's time to start looking for softer "topper" that wraps around the foam core and adds some softness that your body will certainly appreciate!
Battening Down the Hatches
Polyester batting is a super-soft top layer that is often added to foam cushions that helps protect the foam from early wear and long-term tear as a result of movement and shifting. Fabric can slip around, which wears away at the form and will eventually cause either the foam or the fabric to break down. Batting is the protective layer that also offers a little loft to the cushion and can help fill out the fabric so it doesn't slide around.
So, there you have it!
