Furniture is one of the easiest ways to make a statement in a room, and the right sofa automatically draws attention and enhances the look of the space. While upholstery is the most common material used in living room furniture, leather provides many useful benefits not found with other materials. Here are a few reasons to consider upgrading to a leather sofa when the time comes to replace a worn out couch.
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 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.
The first thing about a leather sofa that sets it above and apart from other types of sofas is its inherent durability. Leather itself is just plain tough. Whether it's cow hide, alligator, shark, or some other exotic hide, the resulting leather is simply going to last for years and years. It takes a real beating and just gets more charming as a result. The natural texture and coloration of leather lends itself to longevity because it doesn't show normal use as a defect. Rather, any occasional sign of wear just adds to the charm. This is a generalized statement and, of course, there are exceptions. Some leather is very smooth and will show blemishes. A leather sofa isn't immune to wear and tear, but it does excel what other fabric options will do.
Finally, a leather sofa is pretty easy to care for. A basic wipe down with warm water is usually enough to clean up any mishaps, and if it needs a general reconditioning, leather conditioner is readily available and is easy to apply.
