When purchasing a new glider rocker most consumers do not think about the need to eventually replace the cushions. The frame of a glider rocker likely will outlast the fabric cushions that pad the seat. You can replace the seat and back cushions on your glider rocker for a fraction of what it would cost to purchase a new glider rocking chair.
Things You'll Need
- Glider brand information
- Model and serial number
Write down the brand, model number and serial number of the glider rocking chair that you own. Typically there is a sticker at the bottom of the chair or on the side that contains this information.
Search the Internet with the brand and model number of the glider rocking chair. Look to see if there are stores that carry replacement parts for your glider.
Measure the dimensions of the glider rocker starting with the height and width of the back and then record the measurements of the seat of the chair.
Visit or call the retailer where you purchased the glider rocking chair to see if the company carries replacement cushions.
Choose new cushions that will match the decor of your room. Add new life to the glider rocking chair by selecting a new color scheme or pattern.
Tips & Warnings
- Visit specialty websites that carry replacement parts for glider rocking chairs.
- Go to popular department stores like Wal-Mart and Target; some people don't think to check these stores. They both carry some replacement cushions.
- If you cannot find what you want then you can custom-make new cushions. Another option is keeping the foam inserts and replacing the covers. You can find upholstery fabric at almost any fabric store.
