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.
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.
One of the first things to consider while buying a sofa is the size of the sofa. If, your apartment is on higher floors in the building, you will have to consider the size of the elevator or stairwell in the building. Nothing can be worse than buying a sofa and then realizing that it cannot reach your tenth floor apartment. You have to think of the size of the room in which you are planning to keep the sofa set.
b-Futons: May be this is the most widely known sleeper type. They are not called sofa beds since they don't look like a sofa at all. They come in metal or wood frames and their prices vary from 149 USD to well over a 1,000 USD. Pros: * Widely available. *Start from very reasonable prices. * Rich cushion and frame choices. You can get a spring, foam, wool, cotton or any other cushion. Cons: * They are Futons, not sofas. Not for the living room, good for back rooms only. * Good quality ones with inner spring mattress are expensive. You can get a better quality European Sofa bed with same or less price. * No storage space. *Cushion slides easily: This is may be this is the biggest problem with futons. The cushion just doesn't stay under you and you need to pull it up so often that it becomes a nuisance very soon.
The craziest color leather sofa I ever saw was blue and orange. Yikes! Some happy Boise State Bronco fan I guess. Leather can be dyed almost any color, but obviously the browns, blacks and tans are the most popular. These don't clash with most interiors as much as green, blue, red, orange, or some other bright color might. When I recently recovered my leather dining chairs I got swatches of all sorts of colors to consider. It was a fun process, but in the end I ended up opting for a classic dark brown.
