It may be time for a new couch, but the terrifying prospect of sofa-shopping online might leave you watching Netflix on the floor. Don't be intimidated by the wide world of internet furniture retailers — if you take the right precautions, purchasing a couch through the web can be a shockingly pleasant experience. The key is restraint. Not in size, shape or shade — feel free to go as big and as bold as you want. But purchasing furniture online can be disastrous if you let impulsiveness get the best of you. Before buying, take time to consider space, fabric and style. Make sure to think about your lifestyle, too. Don't just click "Buy."
If you´re like most people, your sofa probably gets a lot of action, and as a result, it can get pretty dirty. Even if it doesn‘t look dirty, it‘s probably covered in dust particles, sloughed-off skin cells, bits of food, and who knows what else. No matter how clean you are your sofa will get dirty, so clean it regularly to extend its life.
If you want to get maximum longevity out of a sofa, it‘s important to rotate the cushions on a regular basis. Flip them over now and then and (if applicable) switch them around to different spots. Rotating and flipping the cushions will allow them to keep their shape and help to eliminate sagging.
