How much does sofa cushion refilling cost?

The price varies depending on the size of your cushions (W x D x H), the foam you choose and how many you are having refilled. Sofa cushions can cost anywhere from £38 - £70 per cushion. Call us with you sizes before you come in for a rough quote (although it can vary due to different foam preferences and inaccurate measuring).

Will they feel much different from feather/ fibre cushions that I have currently?

Yes, foam cushions keep their shape so once you stand up they spring back meaning they will look different on your sofa. Please also consider that with foam replacements you will be sat higher up. This is often useful for those with hip problems and elderly individuals with reduced mobility. The structure of foam also means that sitting should be more beneficial for your back and will help you sit up straighter. (See our range of back rests here.)

Can I get my back sofa cushions replaced too; to stop them sagging?

We can also refill backs or add a foam insert into them to add more structure.

Do you include fibre and stockinette, what is fibre and stockinette on sofa cushions?

Fibre and stockinette is wrapped around the foam cushions to give the appearance of a rounder cushion. The fibre is glued to the foam using a water based adhesive and then the stockinette is over-locked over the foam and fibre to keep it all contained. When you take your covers off it will all come out easier and go back in easier too. All our standard sofa cushion quotes include both fibre and stockinette.
