5 Fun Projects That Use Upholstery Foam

Upholstery foam is a dense yet flexible material that’s perfect for all sorts of DIY projects. It’s versatile, lightweight, and comes in a range of thicknesses depending on what you plan on making. In this post, we’ll show you five fun projects that you can do at home in Hawkhurst that use upholstery foam and our bespoke foam cutting service.

1. Upgrade your sofa

If your sofa is looking a little tired and worn out, upholstery foam can bring it back to life. This is a much more cost-effective alternative to replacing your sofa and can make it look like new.

You’ll need some quality foam cut to size to fit inside your existing cushion covers. If you’re unsure how to measure your cushions, you can bring them to our store in Hawkhurst and we’ll cut foam to fit in store for you.

2. Make a comfy window seat

If you have a large bay window or a lovely little nook in your kitchen, upholstery foam will make the perfect window seat or bench cushion. You can make a cosy spot to curl up and read or enjoy a glass of wine at the end of the day.

If you’re good at sewing, you can make a custom cushion cover in your favourite fabric, and we’ll cut a piece of foam the perfect size to match. Giving you a custom new seat that no one else will have.

3. Update your seat cushions

Whether you have wooden dining chairs that are a little uncomfortable or want to update existing cushions with something new, foam cushions are a great option.

Breathe new life into your dining room with handmade cushions that tie into the room. Just give us the measurements and we’ll cut pieces of foam to match.

4. Make outdoor furniture more comfortable

Outdoor benches and patio sets can be extremely uncomfortable, especially when they’re made of wood or metal. Creating bespoke seat cushions or a long bench pillow not only looks fantastic but makes the entire area much more guest-friendly.

Make sure to choose a water-resistant outer material to keep your pillows safe from the elements.

5. Make a foam mattress topper for your bed

Is your bed a little uncomfortable and starting to hurt your back? Replacing a mattress can be expensive, but creating a foam mattress topper is a quick, affordable solution.

By adding a thin layer of custom cut foam to your mattress, you add another layer of comfort to your bed, making it a warm, relaxing retreat. You might even want to add one to the guest bed to get rave reviews from family and friends.
