People are creatures of habit, and when it comes to relaxing we often, without thinking, head to our favorite spot on the sofa. But sitting in the same spot over and over again can do the sofa quite a bit of harm—crushing the fibers and wearing down the springs underneath. So mix it up and sit on different parts of the sofa. One day sit on the left side, one day sit on the right, and another day try the middle. Distributing the weight evenly over time will help anyone spot from deteriorating too quickly.
If something spills on your sofa, it's important to clean it immediately. Allowing stains to set in the fabric means they may become virtually impossible to clean. It will always vary depending on the fabric and the material that has soiled it, but if you don't take care of it right away, you run the risk of ruining it for good.
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.
