What Foam To Use For Sofa Cushions

GB Foam started out in the sofa and upholstery industry all the way back in 1976. It comes as no surprise that as the company evolved online, our best seller still remains replacement cushions for upgrading old sofas and chairs.

With GB Foam Direct, it’s easy to upgrade your sofa and get it feeling as good as new (perhaps even better). But with so many foam grades to choose from, it can be hard to know which to pick. Today we’re going to look at our recommendations for the best foam to use for sofa cushions.

What Foam Do We Recommend for Sofas?

The best foam to use for sofa cushions is polyurethane foam. But the answer goes further than that. There are lots of different types of polyurethane foam, all with different properties. Choosing the correct sofa cushion foam is all down to the thickness you need and whether they’re back or seat cushions.

Sofa Cushions 1” – 4” (2.5cm – 10cm)

Our GB 39H is perfect for thinner cushions. This firm feeling foam has just enough give when used on thinner cushions and pads to provide the required level of support and shape retention.

Sofa Cushions Over 4” (10cm)

Our GB 41M is a medium feel polyurethane foam that is a perfect replacement for sagging fibre and foam cushions. If your cushions are over 10cm thick this is the foam you should go with for ultimate comfort and shape retention for years to come.

Sofa Back Cushions

Our GB 39S is a luxury soft polyurethane foam. We do not recommend this foam for seat cushions as it is too soft, but it is suitable for sofa back cushions.

You can buy sofa cushion foam cut to size on our replacement sofa cushions page.

Why Choose GB Foam For Your Foam Cut To Size?

Our factory is equipped with the latest CNC cutting technology and throughout the years we have employed the most talented freehand foam cutters in the industry. Many members of the team have worked for the company for several decades and their attention to detail and quality control is something that only comes with years of knowledge and experience.
