The fabric of the sofa also plays a very important role in its selection. You have to decide whether your sofa will be used for formal occasions or will be used very regularly. Leather recliners can be great but may pinch your pockets slightly harder. If you have kids, the sofa will get some roughing up frequently. Children tend to drop food, juices and other junk on the sofa. The sofa, in such cases must be very simple and practical. It may have busy prints to hide the stains and dark colors to keep people from noticing the little \"accidents\", as the best detergents and dry cleaners may not be able to remove them completely.
The other sofa option that is real popular in the sectional is the sleeper sofa. This is great for when guests stay over and you do not have a guest room. Just pull out the bed and you are good to go. The sleeper sofa is also fun just to pull out sometimes when having a movie night.
Covering Your Cushions:The fabric that you choose for the upholstery slipcover and casings for your cushions will be the major style decision that you make. It will also be a major factor in deciding how long your new investment will last. Among the durable, natural fabrics that you can choose are cotton, wool, linen and leather. Among the synthetics, olefin is one of the most versatile fibers available. You can find olefin upholstery fabrics in weaves that mimic nearly any woven fabric - that are wash and wear easy when it comes to care. Take the extra trouble to make sure that your slipcovers and the covers for your cushions are removable so that they can be easily dry-cleaned or machine washed.
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.
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.
