Kiln-dried frames are superior because you can be sure about the reduction of the moisture content to a satisfactory level. Another thing to remember about sofa frames is that a sofa frame that is made of kiln-dried hardwood is a much better choice than a softwood frame even if it is kiln dried. When you look for frames that will last, make sure to ask about how it has been constructed because that is just as important. A well-constructed frame has reinforced joints that are dowelled and glued and uses screws instead of staples.
But there are options for a piece of furniture in front of a sofa that can provide storage, a flat surface for decorative pieces, or just a nice break in the look of upholstered furniture. Here are some of our suggestions for a piece of furniture to place in front of the sofa. Will one work for your home?
There are always budget considerations to be sure, but buying a good quality sofa ensures that you don’t have to replace it within a couple of years. Buying a good quality sofa saves you money in the long run. Buy the best quality you can afford as buying a poor quality sofa means that it will lose its shape, looks and comfort factor pretty quickly, sometimes within a matter of months. A poor quality frame can also cause it to break, and you will have arms that jiggle and legs that aren't steady.
