Glider Rocker Replacement Cushions

How to find glider rocker replacement cushions:

Whether you have just purchased a rocker glider chair without cushions, or if you have gotten so much use out of your chair it needs some maintenance, there are many options for finding glider rocker replacement cushions. The frame of a glider will often outlast the plush fabrics used to make rocker gliders so comfortable so it is not uncommon to need to replace them.

Since the majority of rocker glider chairs are used by expecting and new mothers, many of the reasons for wanting to replace the cushions have to do with baby stains and odors. It is not unusual for this type of chair to have hours of wear, baby accident stains, sour odors, or any other number of possible stains.

The first step in locating glider rocker replacement cushions is to determine if your glider rocker has detachable or fixed cushions. Many manufacturers like the Dutailier Ultramotion is specifically designed with not only removable cushions, but washable ones. If your glider rocker cushions are removable, they will be attached with a number of buttons, zippers, or ties that allow them to detach from the frame of the glider rocker chair.

Finding glider rocker replacement cushions is easy if your model has detachable cushions. You can likely do a search of your manufactures name and add "cushion set" and find possible solutions. For example searching Shermag Glider Rocker Cushion Set returns a complete cushion replacement set for less than $90 dollars.

If you can't find direct replacement glider rocker cushions, there are options available to you that don't require spending hundreds of dollars on a new chair. The solution requires you seek the help of an experience upholsterer to re-fabric the cushions on your chair. If your cushions are designed to detach, then simply remove them and take them to an upholstery shop to pick out which fabric you'd like your replacement glider rocker cushions to be covered in.

However, if the cushions on your rocker were not designed to be removed, you have two options to have replacement cushions made for your chair:

Option 1 - Take your entire chair to an upholstery shop and let a professional disassemble the chair and reupholster the cushion. This option is more convenient in the sense that you don't have to take apart the chair, but inconvenient because you have to load a bulky glider rocker into the car and take it to the upholstery shop.

Option 2 - If you are feeling particularly handy, you can attempt to remove the cushions from the chair by unscrewing the structure behind the cushions with an electric screwdriver or drill. This may take a little more work on your part, but you will likely receive a better price from the upholstery shop, and transporting the glider rocker replacement cushions will be much easier.

DIY replacement cushions:

If you feel comfortable with both an electric screwdriver and a sewing machine, there is always the option of recovering your glider rocker cushions by yourself. Obviously this option will take the most effort on your part, but the reward is a much more reasonably priced glider rocker replacement cushion, and a pride in your work.
