What is the best thickness for bench cushions?

Tailored Thickness: When selecting the thickness of your custom bench cushions, personal preference reigns supreme. However, our 3-inch thickness stands as the most favored option among our clientele. Remember, thicker cushions generally provide extended comfort and support, ensuring a cozy seating experience.

Should a bench cushion be smaller than the bench?

Perfect Fit: Achieving a seamless fit is paramount for bench cushions. They should snugly align with the edges of your bench seat without spilling over. Incorrect sizing can disrupt proportions and compromise comfort, detracting from the overall aesthetic appeal.

What is the best density of foam for bench cushions?

Resilient Foam for Lasting Comfort: Opting for higher-density foam ensures durability and resilience, essential for withstanding the rigors of daily use, especially in high-traffic areas like family rooms. A foam density of 2.5 pounds or higher per cubic foot guarantees that your cushions maintain their shape and support over time.

Bespoke Cushions, Inside or Out

We make custom cushions and covers for settings of all kinds — Benches, Caravans, Windows Seats, Sofas and many more!

What is the best height for a bench cushion?

Consider Seating Height: If you plan to use your bench cushion with your feet resting on the floor, ensure that the cushion's top aligns with optimal seating heights, typically between 18 and 20 inches from the floor. This ensures comfortable seating for individuals of varying statures, enhancing overall user satisfaction.

How do I calculate how much fabric I need for a bench cushion?

Precise Measurement: Begin the customization process by accurately measuring the length and width of each individual cushion from your furniture piece. Multiply the length by two to account for both the top and bottom faces of the cushion, adding an inch to both dimensions to accommodate seam allowances. With precise measurements, you'll achieve bespoke bench cushions tailored to perfection.
