3 Signs that Your Sofa Cushions Need to Be Replaced

There’s nothing better than coming home after a long day of work and collapsing on the living room sofa.

But after a while, sofas can become less comfortable and less aesthetically pleasing from years of wear and tear. When your sofa begins to lose some steam, it may be time to replace or reupholster the cushions.

Read on for a few tell-tale signs your sofa needs to be revamped or removed from the premises!

Loss of compression

One of the biggest factors in replacing your sofa cushions is loss of compression. Over the years, your couch sees a lot of action eventually causing the cushions to become flat and dull. If you notice your cushions are sinking into the springs, it might be time to invest in a new one.

Replacing Sofa CushionsThe color is fading

Maybe your couch is still beloved and comfortable, but it’s starting to show some age. After a while, the color of your cushions may begin to gray and lose their vibrancy.

Under these circumstances, it might actually be a good idea to consider reupholstering. That way you can hold onto the couch you love while breathing new life into it.

It doesn’t fit with your other décor

If you’ve redecorated the room, there’s a chance your couch no longer fits in with the style of the other elements anymore. Once again, reupholstering can be a great plan of action to save money and keep your sofa looking young.

After assessing your sofa situation and determining whether you need to put it on the curb or restore it to its former glory, you need to find someone you can trust to do the reupholstering!

The Benefits of Replacing and Rebuilding Sofa Cushions

Ever notice that whenever you buy new furniture, you often end up needing to replace the cushions not too long after? The average cushion only lasts six months to five years, and most manufacturers don’t use quality foam. As a result, the cushion isn’t really built to last.

Foam Cushions After Being ReplacedBut instead of paying more money for a new sofa, why not replace the cushion with one that will last, or rebuild one that’s been broken down over time?

Every cushion is rated by two grades: density, and compression. That means the amount of foam that is packed into the cushion, and the amount of force it takes to compress it in the first place. Also keep in mind the material: down and feather cushions require a lot of maintenance, and are usually costly, while foam cushions are cheaper, water-resistant, and easy to dry. All you need to know is that some cushions are built to last; others are not.

That’s where rebuilding and replacing your cushions can prove very beneficial.

These services can provide you with foam cushions that have a longer life span of 10 to 15 years. By rebuilding or replacing your cushions, you can rest assured that they will be dependable and long-lasting, saving you money in the long run.

Modern, mass-produced furniture items do not hold up aesthetically or physically to the high standards that real craftsmen put into their pieces.
