We know that with proper care and maintenance your carpet and furniture can last for years to come. Since the goal is to have your furniture last for as long as possible you will want to make sure that you make a purchase that you will want to have around for that long. Today Tough Carpet Cleaning is here to give you some things to think about as you purchase a new couch for your home.
Measure Couch to Fit the Space
One of the most common mistakes that people make when they are purchasing a couch is that they purchase something that is too large or too small for their space. Before you go shopping take the time to measure your space. You may want to draw a diagram of your space and all of the existing furniture in it. It is also a good idea to take a few pictures on your phone to have with you when you go to the store. When you have all of these measurements and pictures it will help you know how the couch will look in your home.
Coordinate Upholstered Furniture with Decor
Before you go to the store you will also want to think about what kind of style your home is. Too frequently people go to the store and see a couch that they love but they forget to think about how it will look with their existing furniture and décor. Nothing is worse than getting a couch home only to find out that you absolutely hate the way it looks with the style in your home.
Buy a Good Quality Upholstery
Since a couch is not a purchase you make on a regular basis you will want to make sure that you are purchasing a good quality piece of furniture. One way to ensure you are being a careful consumer is to check the frame. When the frame of the couch is sturdy it will last longer. If the frame is made from softer wood, like pine, it will not hold up over the years. Choosing a harder wood like oak, ash, or beech is a better choice. These harder woods are much more durable. If the frame is made of particleboard, plastic, or metal we do not recommend purchasing it. If your couch has legs on it you will want to check that they are installed with screws or dowels. Legs that are only glued on will not hold up over time.
Best Filling & Foam for Sofa Back & Cushions
Next you will want to think about what your couch is filled with. There are all sorts of different fillings that used in couches. The cheapest low-cost, easy-care cushion filling is polyurethane foam. You will want to pay attention to how soft or hard it feels though. The best option is high-resilient foam. It is a little more expensive but it lasts longer and is more comfortable. Other options include polyester fiber, goose feathers, duck feathers, and blended options.
Best Material for Sofa
After you have considered all of these features you will want to consider what material your couch is made out of. There are tons of different options for you to choose from. Cotton, linen, wool, leather, natural blends, silk, and synthetic fabrics are all available. Take time to make a selection that has the look, feel, and durability that will best suit your needs.
