Got an old sofa that's still got years of hard wear left in it - but it's looking a little tired and outdated?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.
Many an antique leather armchair, lamb's wool cushion or mohair chaise longue has fell victim to Do-It-Yourself upholstery cleaning. In an ideal world, we wouldn't make such a mess of things, but it's bound to happen. Think of the time you spilled Spaghetti Bolognese all over the carpet because you didn't want to miss X-Factor and there was no television in the dining room. A few simple home cleaning tips will go a long way to not ruining your furniture in the spirit of DIY upholstery cleaning.
The comfort of a sofa set depends on what you need. There are several sofa set designs in the furniture world today. Many furniture stores carry several designs to choose from, but if you do not see the one you had in mind on the furniture show room floor, it can be custom built by any number of custom furniture builders. It may cost a bit more to have it custom made but the option is there if you do not see what you like, when you are ready to procure a sofa set.
You will also have to consider the comfort level you expect from your sofa set. Sofas may be very firm or very fluffy. The backside could be tight or fitted with removable pillows. A lot of people prefer pillowed sofas as they are very relaxing and comfortable. Other things to consider are the angle at which the back of the sofa is kept and the depth of the seat of the sofa. Some people like sofas that have very soft seats while others want a firm sofa seat. Only you will be able to decide the type that keeps you most comfortable.
If you are in the market for a new living room or family room set, there are a few options on the market for you to consider. The most obvious is a couch, a love seat and a chair set. Other options include a hide-a-bed or recliner instead of a traditional couch or chair. Another great option are sectional sofas. A sectional is composed of multiple sections (hence, \"sectional\") of furniture, that fit together to form one large piece of furniture. Let's take a look at the different pieces available, the purpose they serve and why a sectional may suit your life.
