How to Upgrade to Foam Cushions the Easy and Affordable Way

How-to-Upgrade-to-Foam-Cushions-the-Easy-and-Affordable-WaySay that you’ve finally realized how much better your couch or sofa would be with foam cushions, instead of flimsy, expensive, (and not to forget, gross) traditional cushions. You’ve come to the conclusion that this simple improvement would make your home that much cozier. But now you’re unsure of what to do—once you’ve passed the threshold of discovering how much better foam is, you may have a paralyzing moment of indecision. You can’t simply continue to sit on your old, inadequate sofa cushions, yet you may be worried about how much work it will be to make the change.

You’ll be glad to find out that you have no reason to worry—whether you’re upgrading your furniture or replacing damaged cushion foam. It’s easy to take care of it yourself with a few basic measurements to have new foam in no time.

Take the cover off whatever cushion you’d like to fill with foam, and empty it. Then, flatten it out and measure the greatest length and width of the covering, from one seam to another. For covers that aren’t a perfect square or rectangle shape, measure where they are biggest—you want to avoid the tight corners and curved edges, as these can throw your measurements off. Add an inch to each measurement to give yourself room to adjust in case the measurements are slightly off or if your cushion is asymmetrical.

That’s it! From there, you’ll have everything you need to get started with new foam!

Tools Needed to Tend to Your Artificial Grass

Article written by Artificial Turf Supply Commercial & Residential Division.

One of the main benefits of making the switch to artificial grass is the low maintenance required. Unlike with natural grass, you never need to worry about mowing, trimming or reseeding your fake grass and it will require almost no water. The occasional watering to help clean the lawn or cool it down is all you need.

However, despite the reduced need for regular upkeep, you will have to perform some occasional maintenance in order to keep your synthetic lawn looking great. The good news is that you don’t need to do a lot of work and you only need some basic equipment. Make sure you have these tools handy before you start your artificial turf installation so you’ll be ready to do the required upkeep on your lawn:

Rake or Soft Brush: It’s important to remove any organic debris such as dead leaves from your artificial lawn. If not removed, this debris can sink to the base of your lawn and rot. Eventually, this can lead to mold and fungus or damage your turf. Using a rake or a soft brush on your lawn will help to get rid of this debris. You can also rake or brush against the grain to get the blades of your lawn to stand up straight.

Leaf Blower: Another weapon in your arsenal against organic debris is a leaf blower. Using the power of a leaf blower can get out small particles of debris without damaging your lawn.

Mild Detergent: If you ever have a spill (such as food or drink) or have a child drop gum on your artificial lawn, mild detergent is the perfect solution. Just apply and scrub with a soft towel to avoid stains.


Artificial Turf Supply Commercial & Residential Division is the choice of many home and business owners looking for top quality fake grass for their properties. Their team of experienced synthetic turf experts can help you with the purchase and installation of artificial lawns.

Don’t Give Up On Your Furniture Yet

Written by

If you have furniture in your home you love, it can be tough saying goodbye when wear and tear begins taking its toll. Of course, none of us look forward to paying for new furniture either.

Fortunately, there’s an affordable option out there that keeps us from having to do either. Whether you need a single sofa seat or multiple cushions brought back to life, you can accomplish this with some simple foam solutions.

Foam is probably the best material there is for any type of furniture. It’s extremely comfortable, exceedingly resilient and it won’t break the bank.

Plus, if you have furniture currently suffering the results of years of use, you can simply switch out the cushions you have been using for foam replacements and it will be as good as new.

Because it’s foam, it will give you a perfect amount of displacement when you sit or lie down on it. And it will be able to do this for years to come. If the day ever comes that you finally wear it out and it no longer bounces back the same, foam is extremely easy and affordable to replace.

So don’t give up on that furniture yet. Thanks to foam, you can breathe new life into and save money at the same time.
