What Material Makes the Most Comfortable Seat Cushion?

Comfort is king when referring to modern seat cushions. Gone are the days when this upholstery would be stuffed with materials such as animal hair or hay. We now have a wide range of options when it comes to what substances are employed.

Some are obviously more comfortable than others. We need to take into account several variables such as density, weight, compression, and durability over time.

This is why choosing the best material is critical if you hope to make the most out of your sofa, lounge chair or window seat cushion. This leads us to an important question. What is the best choice to keep in mind?

Why Opt for Polyurethane?

Polyurethane is actually a by-product of the petrochemical industry. This is one of the reasons why it is a relatively inexpensive material to use. However, this cost-effective quality does not detract from the comfort that you can expect to experience.

Polyurethane foam can be purchased in a number of different densities; accommodating your personal tastes and requirements. This is also great in terms of ergonomics or if you happen to require a cushion that provides an additional level of softness.

Cushion Fabric Options

There is no doubt that the materials used within a cushion will have a massive impact on the levels of comfort that you can expect to experience. However, let's also keep in mind that the outer fabrics inevitably play an important role.

From traditional textiles such as crushed velvet and cotton to modern alternatives including polyester mixes and linens, the team at Foam and Covers makes it a point to provide you with a personalised touch that would not be possible when dealing with more generic firms.

Other variables that should be accounted for when choosing the most comfortable cushion include where it will be placed (indoor versus outdoor settings), its size and the required thickness.
