There’s something a little different about a window seat compared to other seating areas around the home.

Whether you want a reading nook or somewhere to sit and look out and see what is happening outside. Cushion House offer a range of window seat cushions.

These are all custom made to suit any style window seat.

We also offer free advice and guidance on choosing all components that make the perfect window seat cushion.

How deep should the foam be for the perfect window seat?

Choosing the right depth cushioning is an important factor when having your window seat cushion designed.

For example if you are looking to have the window seat piped, then it is recommended that the minimum depth would be no less than 60mm (6cm) to show a reasonable border between each piped edge.

Will the window seat be used for long periods? If so then it’s a good idea to go for something a little more substantial and we suggest 75mm upwards with a premium high density foam.

Cushion House only use premium high density foams for all seating and proudly use Dunlop Australia for all our seating foam.

What fabric should be used on window seats?

Again careful consideration should be taken in to account when selecting the fabric for your window seat.

Here at Cushion House, we offer a large variety of fabrics from Australia’s leading fabric suppliers. If there is going to be a lot of traffic in the area then it is worth considering an easy clean fabric and something that is machine washable.

For example, Warwick Fabrics have their Halo™ range of fabrics that are easy clean. We can also offer to have the fabrics treated to give additional protection for the odd mishap too!

Is the window seat likely to get a lot of direct sunlight? If the answer is yes then it is definitely worth taking a look at the indoor/outdoor collections these fabrics are suitable for both indoor areas and outdoor areas too and have the added benefit of UV protection too plus with their water repellents thy can safe guard with drinks spilling on there too.
