When testing for fabric, you should also check to see if it wrinkles easily or stretches. If it wrinkles easily, it will be difficult to maintain its looks for a long time. Sagging fabric will make it look dilapidated very quickly. Call it a sleeper sofa, or sofa bed, this is one of the most functional pieces of furniture you can own. Having a sleeper in your living room rather than a sofa might be one way to overcome space limitations, if you have them. It lets you turn any room into a guest room, or even a bed room for yourself if you live in a studio apartment.
If you are just tired of the fabric you have right now but don’t want to invest in a new piece of furniture, you may also want to look into slipcovers. I would definitely not recommend reupholstering in that event. In the end, it is simply a question of finding the best value.
When hanging anything above a sofa, keep in mind that the number one mistake people make is to hang something that´s too small. The piece, whatever it may be, should generally be about two-thirds the width of the sofa (unless you´re opting for something purposely over-scale). If you‘re hanging a group of pieces the same rule generally applies. Other than that the rules are pretty loose, so be creative and choose something that speaks to you and makes you smile.
