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.
Buying a couch online can feel like a leap of faith. To soothe your worries, start with this simple step: measure. There are a number of things to consider before purchasing your new couch, but the most important consideration is how the furniture will fit in your space. You´ll need to know a few different measurements: first, get the raw numbers for the length and width of the room in which your couch will reside. Yes, you might be able to squish an 84-inch couch into your space — but will your guests be squished, too? Ideally, there should be 36 inches between the wall and your furniture and 18 inches between your couch and the coffee table. This can also help you decide between a standard rectangular couch and a sectional. After all, nothing makes a cramped space feel tighter than an awkward sofa leg jutting across the floor.
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?
