Does the thought of trawling through so many websites stress you out? Take a deep breath and know it´s all for the greater good of your home. With so many options available, spending time on your search is the best way to ensure you love the couch you choose — and prevent settling. The worst part of buying a couch online: taking a chance on your comfort. If possible, it never hurts to take a trip to the showroom for a quick lay-down on the sofa you‘ve selected. But for most online retailers, there‘s no showroom.
One of the downsides of IKEA products is that, unless you want to spend more on IKEA‘s furniture building service, you must assemble it yourself. While many find the directions easy to read and follow, others find the minimal directions frustrating. The cushions come vacuum sealed and require two to three days to inflate fully before they can be used and the sofa cover must be ironed which is no small task.
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.
