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.
If your sofa is looking a little tired, but you’re not ready to give up on it just yet, try one of these easy updates. You might be surprised how easy it is to teach an old sofa some new tricks. IKEA is a favorite among budget-conscious consumers. If you´re looking for affordable furniture, they have an array of stylish, durable options that fit most home styles. For frugal shoppers in the market for a sofa that can hold up to everyday use in a home with children and pets, a Kivik loveseat is a good choice. With all the money you save on the couch, you will probably have enough left over to pick up the matching Kivik footstool. The sofa comes in a variety of shades of blue, grey, black, brown, and beige that will fit most standard indoor color pallets.
When choosing a slipcover, select a fabric that is tightly woven. Select a color or pattern that does not let the fabric underneath show through unless that is the effect you are after. Textures add so much to the look and feel of any furniture. Consider the use of texture before you decide on your slipcovers. Textured fabric such as twill, damask or denim can add visual interest, while also resisting wrinkling.
