Got an old sofa that's still got years of hard wear left in it - but it's looking a little tired and outdated?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.
Food spills, pet mess, chewing gum and the like represent more difficult tasks for the DIY cleaning enthusiast. These types of stains are easily mashed into the fabric of the upholstery, making them harder to clean, even by a professional home cleaning company with the proper chemicals and equipment. The best thing to do with these more heavy duty spills is to remove as much of the mess as possible without further soiling your upholstery or pushing it deeper into the fabric.
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.
Sometimes, instead of a traditional couch, a recliner couch is used for the primary piece of the sectional. It is interesting, a couch is normally designed to sit three people, but in our family, when we watch a movie together, one person will call the couch and then lay down on it. Sometimes a younger sibling will get \"permission\" to curl up at the other end or will lean on their older brother or sister. This usually works fairly well, but three people NEVER sit on the couch to watch TV. A recliner couch helps solve this problem. With a recliner on one end of the couch, one person can fully lay back and relax and leave plenty of room for others. Some recliner couches will have a couple of recliners. Some sectional sofas will even have a small pull-down arm rest between the two recliners that have cup holders in them to hold your drink.
