Making A Box Cushion – Getting the Foam You Need
Box cushions have a wide array of uses. They are commonly found on armchairs, sofas, window seats, outdoor seating, pet beds, storage seating and much more. If you’re in need of a custom-made box cushion, GB Foam is here to help.
Buy Box Cushion Foam from GB Foam Direct
We have been cutting foam to shape and size since 1976. For more than 40 years we have been helping our customers to complete a wide range of foam related projects. From simple cushion replacement to large industrial applications, we are fully equipped to handle any foam cutting job you have in mind.
Many tutorials online recommend that you cut the foam for your cushion yourself. We, however, would not recommend this. Foam is not the easiest material to cut by hand. For a professional finish, you need the right equipment and knowledge. We employ some of the most talented freehand foam cutters in the industry and have some of the most advanced foam cutting equipment at our disposal. Because of this, we can cleanly cut foam to practically any shape or size.
Why Choose Us for Your Box Cushion Foam?
We are ISO 9001 approved, meaning that we must follow strict quality control measures to ensure that your order is the very best it can be. What’s more, our foam also exceeds UK Fire safety regulations.
We are also able to apply both dacron and stockinette to your box cushion foam. Dacron padding helps to soften foam edges and creates a fuller look. Meanwhile, stockinette makes it easier to insert and remove your cushion foam from a cover. This is especially beneficial for washing covers and easily replacing them.
Those eager to get their cushion will be glad to read that we also offer next day delivery on UK orders placed before 11:30 AM Monday – Thursday. We offer the fastest foam cutting service online in the UK and ordering couldn’t be easier. All you need to do is follow the five simple steps as outlined on our homepage.
Covers for Your Box Cushion
We are unable to provide our customers with custom made cushion covers. However, with some sewing experience, it is relatively simple to create your own.
Making your own box cushion cover is a more cost-effective method, although it is recommended that you own a sewing machine when doing this.
If you are short on time or do not feel up to the task you could always seek help elsewhere. A professional upholsterer would likely be able to complete this job for you. Otherwise, somebody with enough sewing experience should be able to help. Having a custom box cushion cover made is a great way to personalise it and pick a fabric which you love.
If you plan to make your own cover, you may benefit from watching or reading some online tutorials. There are plenty to choose from so you certainly shouldn’t be stuck for choice.
