Ottoman cushions can often be tricky to purchase or replace due to the wide variety of shapes (round, square, rectangular), specific dimensions, and different levels of use in your home. Trust FoamOrder to help you get exactly what you’re looking for. We offer a wide variety of foam types, from less expensive Econoflex™ foam to our high-resiliency (HR) foam for ottoman that get heavy use. We also offer custom covers in any dimension if your ottoman needs new upholstery covers. If our step-by-step ordering guide doesn’t get you exactly what you’re looking for, contact our friendly experts in Customer Service to help you design the perfect ottoman cushion for your home.
Ottomans often get heavy use and rough treatment if they are in a high-traffic area of your home. If that’s the case, we recommend our long-lasting (20 years) Everflex™ foam. Medium V44 is usually the best option for ottomans between 3–6 inches. At 3 inches and below, we’d recommend a firmer V54 foam, and for thicker ottoman cushions, V34 might provide a softer cushioning. Whether your ottoman will be used for seating, or just as a footrest should also play into your decision, with seating requiring a firmer foam (since it will support a person’s full body weight and not just their feet). Our Customer Service team can provide friendly and helpful advice if needed.
An ottoman is one place where a dacron wrap is purely optional. Dacron batting is primarily to give a cushion a fuller look, so if your ottoman doesn’t need that, you can forego dacron wrap. If you do want the fuller look and extra comfort that dacron provides, we’d suggest a “wrap all sides” treatment for an ottoman cushion, or to put dacron only on the top and bottom of the ottoman cushion.
