As a general rule, you don’t want to place a sofa in front of a door because you don’t want to block it, and you don't want people to walk into the back of the sofa. However, if there's enough space and the back of the sofa has nice upholstery, this look can work very well. But it´s imperative that there be enough space to still have a comfortable traffic path. You also want to make sure to minimize any potential of visual obstructions. So if there´s any doubt, don‘t do it.

What kind of witchy sorcery did I use to create this magical transformation, you ask? A super top-secret, rare fiber found only in every craft store ever. I used Poly-fil, an easy-to-find, cheap (a 10lb box will run you about $30) blend of polyester that has a high tolerance for wear and tear.

This dramatic oversized sectional gives any living space a striking sense of scale, and its low-profile design adds to the expansive effect. At 24 inches high, this unobtrusive couch pairs beautifully with large-format artwork, and the sectional design encourages raucous conversation.

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.

So get creative and display something you love! The most common thing to put on a sofa is a single piece of artwork, but if the artwork is bland or blends in with the wall the impact is minimal. If you really want to create an eye-catching focal point, a bold piece that practically jumps off the wall is the way to go. Try something very large in size, vibrant in color, or graphically appealing in design. Ultimately, the term "bold" is open to interpretation, but the idea is that when a person walks into the room their eye is immediately drawn to the piece because it’s so striking.

Make your fabric selection based on how the sofa will be used, and where you will be placing it. If you are buying your sofa for an area of your home that is heavily used, a delicate fabric or color would be destroyed even before you’ve had a chance to enjoy it.

Reclining, or motion furniture is generally more expensive, and you are paying for a functioning, smoothly running mechanism. It makes sense to check those features out at the store.

So when I came across a genius idea about how to revitalize a 6-year-old saggy sofa with a quick trip to the craft store, I just had to try it for myself. My parents‘ poor 15+-year-old overstuffed leather sofa was years past being "overstuffed" and was starting to look really grumpy- like. However sad and grumpy, it´s a much-loved, quality piece of furniture so I was excited to add a few more miles to its already long and generous life.

Think seriously about this couch and its intended use. Will it be a one-size-fits-all, everyone-is-welcome (including Fido!) family couch? Consider microfiber upholstery, which can handle a bit of rough-housing. Definitely don’t pick silk, which will rip the second your kitten’s claws come out. Or are you hoping to order a showcase piece for your formal living room? Go for silk, or pick something with a lot of texture.
