It is no secret that getting rid of a used sofa or couch sleeper can be difficult. Upholstered furniture may not find many takers, especially when it is damaged, torn, or stained. It can be frustrating to think about the fact that you once paid good money for a piece of furniture that now seems to be of no interest to you or anyone else. Unfortunately, with the exception of leather, upholstered furniture can depreciate greatly with use. It is difficult to get rid of it, even when you´re not looking to make money.
Slipcovers come in many many looks ranging from loose and flowing to very precisely tailored ones. Decide on a look that fits your room. You can choose a loose or relaxed look for a casual effect, or select a tailored look that fits the lines of your sofa or chair more closely for a more formal look. Let your general decorating style dictate the look along with the shape of the piece.
While it is difficult to sell used upholstered furniture at a garage sale or yard sale, it is not impossible. To a great extent, it depends on the condition of the piece. Only consider selling if it is in reasonable shape. Here‘s a good way to gauge the condition: if the tables were turned, would you want to buy it?
