Sometimes, there may be situations in life where you feel that it would be better to cut up your sofa and arrange the pieces however and wherever you wish. Keeping this in mind, sectional sofas have been created to give you optimum seating while using the maximum space available.
Got an old sofa that's still got years of hard wear left in it - but it's looking a little tired and outdated? If your old sofa frame is still serviceable, but the upholstery is showing a little wear and tear, updating it could be just a matter of a few yards of fabric and some comfy new cushions. If you were smart enough to choose a sofa with a cushion back and seat, you can end up looking like you have a whole new couch by the time you're finished. Here's how to spiff up your old sofa with new upholstery and cushions.
Consider the overall look of your house too while choosing a sofa. If you have traditional living room furniture, you will have to look for a sofa that fits into the overall ambiance. Also, the color of the sofa set should match the wall color. Many people go for the latest colors in sofa sets and regret their decision later. A bright check design may be all the rage today, but may become an object of ridicule in a few years. So, unless you want to change your sofa set with every season of fashion, you should select the color that suits your room's look. Usually, neutral colored sofas work best. You can always dress them with cushions in the latest prints to give the latest hot look in house decor.
Easier to Clean: When it comes to upholstery, the material holds onto stains. Even when a spill is cleaned up immediately, there will be residue left behind. In homes with kids and pets, these stains can transform a nice-looking couch into a mottled mess in no time flat. Luckily, leather is easy to clean. Spills wipe up easily, and sticky messes can be cleaned with the help of a damp cloth and mild detergent. The material won't absorb liquid and resists stains as long as it's well maintained.
The difference between professional and DIY cleaning results is generally in the chemicals used. Cleaning companies will have a range of chemicals used for specific stains: one for coffee, one for red wine, one for doggy mess, etc. If your best efforts have failed, with professional upholstery cleaning the proof is in the pudding, or lack of it on your sofas, as the case may be.
