We’ve all been there: you sit down on your favorite chair and the cushion is so uncomfortable. You think to yourself, “I bet I could buy a new one that’s better.” Or maybe it’s the opposite—your shoes are slipping off because they’re too slippery. Either way, choosing the right cushion for your surface can be difficult. But we’re here to help! We’ll have you sitting comfortably in no time with our guide on how to choose the perfect cushion for any surface.

The first thing you need to know when choosing the right cushion for your surface is that there are three main types of cushions:

Let’s talk about the three main types of cushions. There are so many to choose from, but if you know what to look for and have a general idea of your needs, it’s not too hard to figure out which cushion will be best for you.

  • Buckwheat hulls: These are by far my favorite type of cushion because they conform so well to the shape of your body. They offer great support without being too stiff or hard on your joints like memory foam can sometimes be and they don’t trap heat like wool does—something that’s especially important if you live in an area with hot summers or spend a lot of time outdoors during the warmer months (like me). The only downside is that buckwheat hull cushions need to be fluffed every now and then (which can take some time) but this isn’t really much of an issue once it gets into a routine!

Buckwheat Hull Cushions:

Buckwheat hulls are a great alternative to polyester and latex. They are made from the waste product of buckwheat, which is grown in the U.S., making it a renewable resource that does not come from overseas. Buckwheat hulls are naturally hypoallergenic, anti-microbial and antimicrobial, which makes them ideal for people with allergies or sensitive skin who want something durable yet comfortable.

Memory Foam Cushions:

Memory foam is a type of viscoelastic foam that conforms to the shape of your body. It’s great for comfort, but not as durable as other types of cushions. Memory foam cushions are available in all sorts of shapes and sizes, so you can find one that fits your needs perfectly!

Cotton Fiber Fill Cushions:

Cotton fiber fill cushions are the least expensive cushions. They are not as durable, comfortable and supportive as other types of foam and they are not as easy to clean. Because they do not last long and they do not offer good support, cotton fiber fill cushions should be avoided by most people.

Another thing to consider when choosing the right cushion for your surface is whether or not it has a removable cover and if so, what kind of fabric is used? Some cushions have cotton covers while others may be made from polyester or other synthetic fabrics. You’ll also want to think about how often you plan on washing the covers because some fabrics require dry cleaning in order to keep their shapes over time. This can be expensive so make sure you look into this before purchasing one!

Choosing a cushion for your surface can be difficult, but with these tips it doesn’t have to be!

There are three main types of cushions: foam, gel and memory foam. Each type has its own benefits and drawbacks which we’ll discuss below. However, there are other things to consider when choosing the right cushion for your surface.

The thickness of a cushion is important because it determines how much support you will get from it when sitting on it. The thicker the material that makes up the cushion, the more support it offers; however, this also means that there is more pressure on certain points of contact between yourself and the seat itself (i.e., knees or back). So if you’re looking for something that’s going to provide better support while still allowing flexibility in movement then look into getting one with thinner materials instead – this way you’ll get some extra comfort without sacrificing too much stability by having less padding around those areas which come into contact most often (such as knees).


We hope that this guide has helped you make your decision on which type of cushion is right for you and your surface. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us at; we’ll be happy to help!
