Sofas are meant for sitting, not sleeping. Although it's tempting to sleep—and sometimes you can't help dozing off—your sofa was not designed for it. Eventually, the frame and the cushion will sag and deteriorate because of the prolonged use. So while a nap now and then is fine, if you´re settling in for a full 8 hours do yourself a favor and make the trip to the bedroom.
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.
Now comes the fun part: actually holding bits and pieces of your potential new couch in your hand. Once you've narrowed down your sofa color and fabric selections. Choose a few different selections: pick a range of similar colors, or trial a shade in both microfiber and velvet. Once you have the fabric samples in-hand, don´t make your decision immediately. Gut instinct may be valuable, but so is thoughtful consideration. The perfect color and fabric depends on the color of your hardwood floors, the exact shade of white you´ve slathered on your walls, the other furniture in your room — and even the sunlight.
