Your living room is usually the first thing visitors see when they come to your home and that makes it the ideal place to go a little extravagant to make a good impression. What do people usually say when they walk into your living room for the first time? If they nod and smile politely, then you’ve got some work to do. What you’re really looking for is an exclamation of praise like, “Wow! I love your home.” Believe it or not, you don’t have to spend a lot of cash to get that look, especially if you’re a good shopper.
To begin, look around your home to see if you need to replace or repair old furnishings. If you are working with a limited budget, then try refinishing old pieces of furniture so you can keep using them for a few more years. One thing that may need to be replaced is a foam seat. Most of us have foam rubber in our couch, chairs, mattress and even office furniture.
A foam seat that has worn out will feel lumpy and uncomfortable. It may have an offensive odor. Before throwing it away, measure the length, width and thickness of the foam. Double check your measurements and then write down how many you will need to order. Any type of foam can be used. Websites such as The Foam Factory have all types a foam rubber for sale and will cut each piece to your specifications.
Plus, you can choose from any type of foam rubber, including:
Foam Seat covers are easy to make. If you aren’t handy with a sewing machine then look around your neighborhood for someone who is. You may have a friend or relative who could sew up new cushion covers for you at a minimal cost.
