When you sit down on a sofa to try it out, take into account the height and feel of the back as well. Do you prefer a tight-back sofa or one with loose cushions? Try out all different cushion configurations to see which one feels right. Do remember to take your shoes off before you place your feet on a sofa in a furniture store if that is your sitting style.
Remember that there is a difference between re-covering and reupholstering. Re-covering involves just replacing the fabric, and it is more of a cosmetic procedure. Reupholstering could involve replacing the padding and springs, mending the frame or re-staining any wood. As you can see a complete re-upholstery job involves a lot of labor and replacement of material, and is more structural in nature.
The most important things to consider are quality and comfort, especially if you plan to spend any amount of time on your sofa. The best looking sofa in the whole world cannot measure up to the most comfortable one. That is why you need to test drive one before you buy, just the way you would test drive a car.
This has a velour-like cover that zips to be fully displaced, however, the joined tag states that both the cushion and the foam should be "spot-cleaned" only and no washer or dryer. As for sinking in or heat, my place is air-conditioned and I'm understandably slim, so no criticisms there, I have a thin waterproof-fabric/fill pad on it, which might also improve heat a bit?As an exclusive side-sleeper, I sink just quite and don't bottom out.
