What is a lay-in pew cushion?
Different types of lay-in pew cushions
Loose & Reversible Style – removable cushions that can flip over to provide the same finished look and feel on either side of the pew cushion. We use 2 inch high-density 1850 polyurethane foam for our lay-in cushions. Dacron on top and bottom of cushions provide a durable and functional finish. The cushions can be sewn closed or can include a zipper closure, which allows easy cover replacement should any damage happen to the cushion cover.
Fabric and Padding Considerations
There are many options when it comes to choosing pew cushions. Some are made from fabric, and others from leather. Depending on the size and shape of your church pews, there may also be other options, such as vinyl or canvas seats. Depending on how thick the cushion needs to be, they can come with two or three layers of foam.
When choosing which type of pew seat cushions you want for your church, consider what would work best for your congregation’s needs. You may be considering replacing your church pew cushions because you’re looking for a way to transform your church pews into a more comfortable place to sit. For an older congregation, you may want to invest in thicker padding so they can be more comfortable. Or perhaps you are looking to update the look of your sanctuary and need pew cushions that match the new aesthetic. One of our trained consultants can help you decide the specific needs of your church and find the perfect lay-in pew cushions for your particular needs.
Affordability of lay-in pew cushions
The cost of buying a lay-in pew cushion is relatively straightforward. You need to know the type of cushion you want (for example, foam or fiber), the length and width of the pews, and the number of cushions needed for each row. The benefit of lay-in pew cushions is that they are typically quite a bit less expensive than having your pews reupholstered. Often reupholstery requires the removal of pews to a factory and more extensive manpower, all of which increase the cost. Lay-in pews can be a quick and affordable option for updating your church sanctuary without sacrificing aesthetics.
