Our Furniture Fix Review
There are several items to consider regarding the success or failure of Furniture Fix.
Does it provide support?
There is a small amount of support provided, but it is minimal and it requires three to four boxes to cover an entire couch. You could just as easily place a lid from a large plastic storage bin under your cushions for the same support (or better). The support provided degrades rather quickly as the panels bend over time.
Is it durable?
The commercial’s test using two sumo wrestlers is convincing, but we found the product’s durability to be short-lived. Within two weeks, we had broken and cracked panels.
The panels may stick out from cushions on smaller couches. One of the panels actually made a small tear in our couch’s fabric.
Does it work on beds?
The instructions for Furniture Fix state that it takes several sets to support a bed:
- Twin bed – 3 sets ($45)
- Full bed – 4 sets ($60)
- Queen – 5 sets ($75)
- King – 6 sets ($90)
Based on the criteria above, Furniture Fix cannot be recommended and we consider the product to be a failure.
Furniture Fix seems good on paper, but the reality of the product does not deliver. It provides no more of a solution than simply sticking a piece of plywood, flattened cardboard box, or large plastic lid under your cushions.
