If you bought a quality living room couches, then you’ll understand the problem of having too replace the cushions. The couch might look good after years of use, but it will still need the cushions to be replaced. The cushions get thin and uncomfortable after years of use. There are different terms used to refer to the cushions. There are different kinds of cushions and each differ in terms of quality, materials used to make it and design. Here are some types of cushions that you’ll find in the market:
Types of cushions
- Foam cushions
Here’s the first type of cushion that can be used for living room couches. It’s made out of foam entirely with some down proof ticking enveloping the cushion. The core of the cushion is comprised of high density cushions that’s again covered by convoluted foam followed by a polyester fibre wrap. This cushion is best for those who want little maintenance with their cushions. There’s no need to fluff or plump the cushion after using it for a while. Plus, it makes for a very firm seat.
- Spring down cushions
This cushion is particular soft, but not the softest in the market. The core of the cushion is made of coiled springs that are surrounded by foam and wrapped with a layer of polyester fibre that’s thick. The spring coils provides a durable feel to the cushions while the down makes the cushion soft and loft. The issue with this cushion is that some plumping and rotation is required to keep it comfortable.
- Blend down cushions
This is the last type of cushion that we’re aware of. it’s also called the down plush cushion. This is what we consider to be the softest and luxurious of the cushions. The construction of the cushion is interesting as its made out of thin foam that’s wrapped with a layer of polyester fibre. This is in turn enclosed by a thick layer of a blend of poly fibre and down. The cushion feels more like a pillow as its really soft and comfortable. Some fluffing is definitely needed to make the cushion get its original shape.

In terms of which cushion works best for your living room couches, this’ll depend on the user. If you love softness and are ok with maintenance, then the blend down cushions will work for you. If you’re too busy and can’t afford to keep fluffing your cushions then a foam cushions is the best choice. It all really depends on the user and their preference.
