Replacing Patio Cushions with Outdoor Foam
When measuring outdoor foam seat cushions to replace the foam there are a few things to taken into consideration:
The new foam interior needs to be slightly bigger than your cushion cover
This allows the foam to be slightly compacted and will help it to fill out the cushion cover properly
If the foam interior is too small then your seat cushion cover will wrinkle when you sit on it
If the new foam fillings are too big you may strain the seams and zip on your cushion cover and your new cushion will not look right
When replacing seat cushion foam, generally, you will need to add 1” to the cushion width, and 1” to the cushion length. You may also want to add 1” to the depth of the cushion as well. This will ensure that your seat cushions have a domed appearance instead of looking too flat.
Best Foam to Use for Seat Cushion Replacement?
Rectangular foam, which can be rounded at the edge, is recommended for most applications. High density outdoor foam is recommended.
