Cotton fabrics can be less durable and show wear faster than other fabrics, so parents with young children or pets may want to choose a more durable fabric. Using a separate fabric sofa cover is another great way to lengthen the life of your furniture and prevent stains. One complaint about this sofa is that the seat cushions are constructed in a way where they cannot be flipped. Many people prefer to flip their sofa cushions regularly, just like flipping a mattress, to allow the cushions to wear evenly. Though the cushions still look great a year on, the inability to hide stains by flipping a cushion may bother some owners. The back cushions can be flipped, though.
Now comes the fun part: actually holding bits and pieces of your potential new couch in your hand. Once you've narrowed down your sofa color and fabric selections. Choose a few different selections: pick a range of similar colors, or trial a shade in both microfiber and velvet. Once you have the fabric samples in-hand, don´t make your decision immediately. Gut instinct may be valuable, but so is thoughtful consideration. The perfect color and fabric depends on the color of your hardwood floors, the exact shade of white you´ve slathered on your walls, the other furniture in your room — and even the sunlight.
A 9 to 16 foot sofa separated into several sections that can be repositioned to fit the room. Its ideal for large rooms or large families that need seating for more people. Some styles have reclining sections. Sectional sofas are generally large pieces of furniture so be sure you measure not only the room, but the entranceways into the room. It would be a shame to purchase a piece and not be able to get it through the door!
