Got an old sofa that's still got years of hard wear left in it - but it's looking a little tired and outdated?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.
Leather Is More Durable: Whether the sofa is replacing a worn out upholstered couch or a beat-up futon, leather simply looks nicer. The variety of finishes and durability of materials keeps leather looking like new for longer. Rather than worrying about rips or tears in the material, owners can look forward to tasteful aging and unique wear. Older leather adds character and charm to a room instead of looking worn and tired.
More Comfortable Than Upholstery: Upholstery provides a thin barrier between those using the furniture and the structure of the cushion. Over time, the shape of the couch will change and the materials will break down. This leads to an uncomfortable, lumpy couch that no one wants to sit on. As leather sofas age, the material becomes more comfortable. Rather than breaking down, these sofas conform to body weight more readily. In fact, many owners note that their older couch feels nicer than it did when it was brand new.
Resists Fading: While the color of leather will change over time due to normal wear and tear, it won't fade when set in front of a sunny window. While the material will need regular conditioning and cleaning to resist sun damage, the material won't lose its color.
Nearly every home needs an extra bed to accommodate a guest. Most people don't have enough space in their homes to have an extra mattress-bed. They just can't afford to spare that big space to be used once in a while. Sofa beds (also called sleeper sofa or sofa sleeper) come into the scene as a replacement for mattresses-beds.
