Chances are, you’re sitting while browsing this article. Is your seat (more specifically, the padding)  too stiff, worn-out, or just right? When you strip away the fancy finishes of your seating, you’ll discover a foam interior. The type of foam used for seating often determines durability, longevity, and comfort. Furthermore, they’re also easily replaceable which makes furniture shopping more affordable for those who prefer DIY projects. 

This article will discuss the best types of foam to use for sofa cushions. The lifespan of a foam is dependent on the quality of foam which is determined by its density. Keep reading to learn about the different types of foam used for padding cushions to make the best choice for you. 

Most Common Foam Cushion - High Density Foam

High Density foam is a medium-quality industrial grade foam. Most average furniture uses this foam grade because of its economical price structure. It  lasts approximately four years.

This cushion foam will return to its original shape after compression at a medium pace. Like most foam, it will get softer over time as it deteriorates. When you sit on an old seat at a restaurant or bar that goes straight to the seat’s wooden platform, you are likely sitting on an old High Density foam cushion that deteriorated and has lost its cell structure.

High Density foam offers a more consistent level of support and comfort than Commercial Grade Polyurethane foam but less so than Lux and High Resilience foam.
