If you are
needing help determining the measurements that you need for your
replacement cushions, it is best to measure your furniture that the
cushions will be going on.
In the following steps, we use a sample chair to
demonstrate the proper way to take effective measurements. Once you have
taken measurements, you will be able to easily find the cushions that
you are searching for.
Important tips to remember.
*Old cushions tend to spread out over time and may throw your measurements off.
*Remember not to smash the cushion down while measuring.
*Measure edge to edge - not seam to seam
Measure your Furniture
By measuring your furniture this will give you more accurate measurements as opposed to measuring cushions.
The best way is imagine a cushion sitting on the chair. Try to visualize how you would like it to be.
To measure your furniture, follow the steps below.
Step 1 - Take a measurement across the seat of the cushion. This will give you the width.
Step 2 -Measure
from the highest point of where you want the cushion to be down to the
seat of the cushion. This will give you the back measurement.
Step 3 - Next, take a measurement from the back of the chair to the front edge. This measurement will be for the seat of the chair.
Step 4 - Now
that you have all of your measurements, put them together as shown
below in the cushion demonstration. Since there is no way to take
measurements on the thickness, we have standard thickness of individual
Please refer to the diagram below to give you
a specific view of cushions and how they are referred to such as
thickness, back, and seat.
Format for reading our measurements: Width X Length X Thickness (Back/Seat)
Step 1 = Measure the width of your cushion. Remember to measure the furthest edges of the cushion and not seams.
Step 2 = Next, either lay the
cushion flat or sit it up. You will want to measure from the top edge
down to the break of the cushion. This will give you the back measurement of the cushion.
Step 3 = Same as step 2. Measure
from the break or fold of the cushion down to the bottom of the cushion.
This measurement will be for the bottom of the cushion.
Step 4 = Lay the cushion on a flat
surface. With a ruler or measuring tape, record the length that you see.
You should be measuring edge to edge and not seam to seam. Try to
refrain from smashing the cushion down while taking measurements.
*Check your measurements = Step 2 and Step 3 should the overall measurement.
Step 5 = The final step is to
measure the thickness of your cushion. Keep in mind that every cushion
may differ slightly and it is ok to estimate the thickness of your
Now that you have all the measurements that you need, put them in order
and use the formula to search for the cushion that best fits your
measurements and preferences.
SAMPLE - cushion measurements = 20 X 36 X 3 (19/17) - 19/17 is the break for the seat and back. 19 is back heigth and 17 is seat depth.
