How to measure
What are customers saying?
- A rocking chair pad or cushion is a great way to refurbish the appearance of an older-looking rocking chair.
- It's important to gather some initial measurements prior to purchasing one of these chair cushions to ensure that it is a fit.
- It's impossible to create a one-size-fits-all cushion- so as the saying goes, measure twice cut once!
- The bottom cushions are frequently coated with an anti-skid grip. Along with the ties this will help to keep the cushions in place while rocking.
- There are a variety of different color and material cushion types available for purchase, which will help you to customize the look and feel of the rocking chair cushion that you eventually select.
- If you are looking for a comfortable gel cushion to supplement any other style of chair- check out our gel cushion reviews!
- One of the most common complaints besides sizing issues is that the colors on the website do not match the colors of the actual product- this does require some study to ensure that what you are purchasing will be color-coordinated to your desired environment.
