How to Choose A Cushion Pad?

Cushion pads are often overlooked but have a very practical use around the house. First of all, they can help protect your furniture’s original upholstery by providing an extra layer of protection against dirt, dust, spills and stains. Secondly, they can provide users with additional support especially to those who spend a lot of time sitting down. When it comes to cushion pads there are many choices. Here’s how to pick a good cushion pad for your home.

Thickness and Firmness

Not all cushion pads are created equally. Some are too thin to provide support while others are too thick and hard to sit comfortably on. Luxura’s hollowfibre cushion pad is just thick enough to sit comfortably on while giving the user enough lower back and buttock support. It has a firmness rating of medium so it’s thick enough so you won’t feel the seat of a hard chair but soft enough so that you receive gentle support for your buttocks and back.


Some people are picky over the filling material of their pillows and cushions. This is because some fillings can trigger allergies or harbour harmful allergens such as dust mites and their droppings. There are also fillings that are hard to maintain and keep clean. If you have sensitivity to dust-mites or want something that is easy to maintain, try hollowfibre cushions.

Easy Maintenance

For many of us, maintaining a home, raising children while holding a full-time job is the norm. However, when you’re busy, dirty cushions are the last thing on your mind. If you’re one of these busy people you need a cushion that is low maintenance. Lucky for you the hollowfibre cushion pad needs minimal attention. Just fluff it regularly so that it regains its shape and loftiness. You also need to wash it every 6 months so that nasty things like dust mites do not accumulate and trigger any health problems.

Easy to Find

Cushion filling is a personal choice. Some people prefer down, wool, cotton or polyester. Polyester and hollowfibre are perhaps some of the most common filling materials for cushions and pillows in the UK. They are usually found in many stores so you won’t need to hunt them down especially when time comes to replace the whole pad.


Because it is a common product, hollowfibre cushion pads are also very affordable. At Luxura for example, a single cushion pad costs just £4.99. This is very affordable compared to other cushion pads with wool or down filling which can cost at least 10 times more. This means more savings for you and your family.

Choosing a cushion pad is easy if you have the right supplier in mind. Check out Luxura and be amazed at their affordable and practical products.
