Posted by finelineupholstery on January 22nd, 2015

An important aspect of living room décor is sofa. Sofa comes in a variety of styles and designs. It can be categorized into sectional or sleeper types. It can be further categorized into the following types:

  • Tight back- This type of sofa comes with a firm seat and without a cushion to comfort the back. Ideal for those on the go, this type of sofa is maintenance free.

  • Attached pillow back- This type has softer seats and pillows are sewn together with the seats to make the unit a whole one. Attached pillow back sofas are high maintenance as the pillows can be cleaned separately.

  • Loose pillow back- This type of sofa comes with an identical seat as well as cushion back. The cover can be unzipped and cleaned separately. You also have an option to re-stuff it.

  • Multi pillow back- As the name suggests, this type comes with more number of back cushions than seat pillows. It is ideal for those seeking greater comfort.

How to replace and re-stuff sofa cushion?

After repeated use and sitting in, sofa cushions tend to lose their firmness and comfort. It is then time to re-cushion them. Things to consider when going in for re-stuffing sofa cushions:

  • Measure the cushions: Measure the thickness and width and length of the cushion. This will give you a fair idea about how much foam to replace with.

  • Firmness matters: You can make the sofa as firm as it was when you bought it or can reduce for greater comfort. When ordering foam, it is more economical to order a six-foot long strip of foam and then break it into smaller pieces.

  • Check the quality of foam: Whether buying foam online or buying it from a retail store, it is important to check the quality of the foam.

Foam products are available online and in retail stores in Chelsea and sofa cushions in London.
