How to Buy Replacement Cushions for a Glider Rocking Chair

Shares & Saves

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.
