Frequently Asked Questions
Which foam should I use for my L-cushion?
There are many different foam types, densities, and firmnesses to choose from for cushions. The first thing to consider is the application. What is the foam being used for? If it is for furniture that is not used often, lower grade foam such as industrial grade High-Density foam would be a cost-effective option. If the foam insert is for the family room that gets a lot of use, then High Resilience foam is the best foam option.
Weight is also important to consider. The heavier the individual, the firmer the foam should be. The industry standard is a medium-firm firmness. People weighing 200 pounds or more should choose a firmer option so the foam can support the weight and not bottom out.
- Industrial Grade: High-Density foam. Ideal for furniture that is used periodically.
- Good: Lux foam. An upgrade from High-Density foam.
- Excellent: High Resilience foam. Very comfortable and durable.
