Do you know how long your sofa cushions are supposed to last? Since no piece of furniture lasts forever, it’s important to know when you’ll need to get replacement cushions to preserve the comfort and coziness of your living room.

Interior designers have said that the average sofa lasts between 7 and 15 years. Furthermore, how long your sofa cushions last depends on the quality of the filler inside them. According to one of SFGate’s home guides, foam sofa cushions are rated according to how long they are expected to last, ranging from 5-year foam to 15-year foam. Denser foams tend to be more resilient, and the average sofa seat cushion has a medium level of firmness, while the average back cushion is much softer. Pay attention to your softer foams, as they will need to be replaced more often.

Other indicators that your sofa needs some replacement cushions include signs of flatness or sagging, stains, and wear and tear on the cushion covers. You can turn the cushions over every other week to make them last longer, but eventually, they will start to lose their shape. When this happens, it’s best to look for cushions made of the right type of foam for your needs. If you want something durable and long lasting, you might prefer Lux Foam, but if comfort is your priority, you can choose a cushion made from Super Soft Foam.
