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 will change the look of your chair or sofa, but the feel or underlying structure will not change. So if your sofa is lumpy, or the springs are sticking out, simply getting new slipcovers will not magically make them more comfortable. A slipcover is cosmetic change only, not a structural one. If your furniture is falling apart, this budget solution could turn out to be a wasteful expense because you stand to gain nothing from it. You are better off buying new furniture or reupholstering so that the filling is repaired as well.
A 9 to 16 foot sofa separated into several sections that can be repositioned to fit the room. Its ideal for large rooms or large families that need seating for more people. Some styles have reclining sections. Sectional sofas are generally large pieces of furniture so be sure you measure not only the room, but the entranceways into the room. It would be a shame to purchase a piece and not be able to get it through the door!
