Although it's tempting to sleep—and sometimes you can't help dozing off—your sofa was not designed for it. Eventually, the frame and the cushion will sag and deteriorate because of the prolonged use. So while a nap now and then is fine, if you´re settling in for a full 8 hours do yourself a favor and make the trip to the bedroom.

Cotton fabrics can be less durable and show wear faster than other fabrics, so parents with young children or pets may want to choose a more durable fabric. Using a separate fabric sofa cover is another great way to lengthen the life of your furniture and prevent stains. One complaint about this sofa is that the seat cushions are constructed in a way where they cannot be flipped. Many people prefer to flip their sofa cushions regularly, just like flipping a mattress, to allow the cushions to wear evenly. Though the cushions still look great a year on, the inability to hide stains by flipping a cushion may bother some owners. The back cushions can be flipped, though.

Instead, take off the cover (most sofas these days have removable covers) and wrap the cushion in a layer or two of quilt batting or foam wrap. If you find it shifts around a bit secure it using a spray adhesive. And if you find there are still a few saggy spots, now is the time to fill them with extra pieces of cotton batting. Easy peasy.

You do this by placing a straight tape measure from the top back of the frame to the bottom front.
