It’s What’s Inside That Counts
Size and shape are important when it comes to cushion inserts, but that’s not the only important part. When it comes to choosing the best insert, there’s also the matter of what’s on the inside: in other words, what materials the cushions are made out of. Here at Jampak we use two primary types of fill: feather fill and PET fibre. There are benefits and drawbacks to both feather and PET cushions, but there’s no one cushion insert that’s necessarily “better” than the other, just different.
Feather Fill Or PET
These differences are pretty pronounced, however. Feather fill is softer and more luxurious, letting you sink into the cushion further. PET, meanwhile, is much more firm and keeps cushions more plumb. It’s also hypo-allergenic thanks to its 100% recycled fibre content. This means there’s no clear cut winner between the two, as it depends on your needs: if you have allergy issues, it’s good to stay away from feather inserts. Meanwhile, if you want a soft, downy insert, PET is likely to be too stiff for your needs.
Quality Can’t Be Ignored
No matter what size of cushion insert you need or what type of fill you want your cushion insert to have, it’s important to ensure you’re choosing an insert that features high-quality manufacturing. Couch cushion inserts are meant to be sturdy and hold up to the demands of being used for several seasons straight, and that means they need to be manufactured using methods and materials that ensure they’ll last as long as they need to.
Always make sure you purchase the best, highest-quality cushion inserts you can afford, as these will more likely stand the test of time and provide a quality investment for your home decor.
