Where to Buy Foam Locally – Places to Check
If you’re wondering where to buy foam locally, here are a few ideas for places you can check.
Local craft shops may be a good place to begin looking for foam sheets. Chances are though that your options will be limited. You may end up spending more money due to size limitations and ultimately may still not end up with the ideal piece of foam.
Another place to check would be with a local upholsterer. Upholsterers sometimes stock foam in bulk quantities and may be willing to sell you some foam if you ask nicely enough. If they are unable to provide you with foam, they may be able to offer advice on buying foam in your local area.
If all else fails, remember that GB Foam Direct is the fastest supplier of foam online in the UK. We can deliver your foam to you within one working day. We also allow customers to collect their orders from our factory. If you need your foam the same day and live within travelling distance to High Wycombe, you are welcome to collect your order from us.

5 Simple Steps – Step 1
Before you begin the ordering process, please ensure that you have already made note of the measurements that you require. This will save you more time when placing your order and will prevent you from having to stop in the midst of ordering to acquire these details. The first step in the ordering process is to select the template which you require.
We have a total of 25 unique templates to choose from, which also includes a custom template option. As such, no matter what shape you require, you’ll be able to find it when using our Direct service.
You’ll find all of our templates on our cut to size page, however, we’ve also refined the options into categories to make the selection process easier. You’ll find each cut to size service offered here within the navigation bar on the left-hand side.
5 Simple Steps – Step 2
The next step in the ordering process is to input your measurements. If you’ve already taken your measurements, go ahead and input them.
Not taken any measurements? Don’t worry, you’ll need to measure up the area in which your foam product will be placed now. If you’re replacing your sofa cushions, for example, you can use your existing cushion covers as a guide.
You will need to make a note of the length, width and depth in mm, cm or inches. Once you’re happy that your measurements are accurate, input them into the boxes provided.
5 Simple Steps – Steps 3, 4 and 5
Next, you’ll need to choose which foam type you’d like. We offer a range of varying types and grades of foam here, all which cater to different needs and requirements.
We stock foam types including high-density, memory, reticulated and much more. Choose from the list provided and our descriptions will help to give you a better idea of the advantages that each type offers.
After this, you’ll be prompted to select if you require additional add-ons. Dacron and Stockinette make it easier to insert your brand-new sofa cushions into their covers, whilst also providing additional loft.
Finally, you’ll need to place your order. Don’t forget that next working day delivery is available for qualifying purchases.
