Discover the versatility of cushion foam to revamp your home


Cushion foam, also known as upholstery foam, is a versatile and durable material made of flexible polyurethane. It is available in various densities and thicknesses, with density being the most important property. The higher the density of the foam, the more resistant it is to wear and tear.

Different types and grades of cushion foam have been developed over the years to suit different applications and upholstery projects in homes.

Revive your sofa with new cushion foam

If your sofa is looking tired and the cushions have started to sag, replacing the entire sofa may not be necessary. Instead, consider giving it a cost-effective makeover by replacing the foam inserts in the seat and back cushions. By having custom cut high-quality foam to fit perfectly into your existing cushion covers, you can easily enhance the comfort and appearance of your old settee.

Create a cosy window seat with foam

Whether you have bay windows or a small nook by a window, window seating can maximise the use of that space. To create a comfortable spot for reading or relaxing, order a custom-made seat foam cushion in the desired firmness. At Direct Foam, you can even have a bespoke window cushion cover made from a selection of fabric colours to match your existing decor.

Refresh chair and bench seating with cushion foam

If your dining room chairs or kitchen benches have worn-down seat pads, replacing them with custom foam cushions can bring new life to your furniture. Upholstery foam comes in different grades, offering various levels of firmness, making it suitable for solid wooden seats that need added comfort.

Enhance outdoor furniture with custom foam cushions

Transform the look of your outdoor furniture before storing it away for the winter by opting for custom made high-density foam cushions. Durable and cosy, foam is the perfect filling choice for patio furniture, garden cushions, sunbed mattresses, and various other outdoor garden seating.

Restore the comfort of your bed with a foam mattress topper

If your mattress no longer offers the same level of comfort as before, prioritising a good night’s sleep and feeling rejuvenated upon waking is so important. A foam mattress topper can provide an added layer of comfort and support to your mattress. It is not only a cost-effective alternative to purchasing a new mattress, but it can also prolong the life of your current mattress.
