The Importance of Design

Buying a comfortable couch doesn't mean that you have to end with something that you don't like. On contrary, if you spend a lot of time in your living room, sofa has to please you sight – after all your home is reflection of your personality and you should be happy with its look. There is only one simple rule when you are looking for new couch – try to understand what would really fit to your home.

Don't fall for beautiful pictures and interiors at the showrooms. Every piece of furniture looks nice at the store, but remember that this literally is an exhibition in result of long hours work of interior specialists and marketing research. Prescind your attention from the details around the sofa and try to visualize it in your own home. Some really impressive modernistic designs look great in the catalogs they could look awful in your home. Be realistic. Most of the time classic models are the best solution, because they can be easily combined with any interior.

Maintenance is Something That You Will Eventually Deal With

Every sofa looks great when is brand new. But as any kind of furniture couches require proper care. Take a minute and ask yourself how much time, effort and money you can put in cleaning and maintaining your sofa's upholstery.

There are some fabrics that look fabulous and give a great feeling but are really hard to clean – such as suede,cotton and linen. Removing a stain from most of the natural fibered textiles is not easy so if you have small children or pet white velvet couch might not be the best idea. Synthetic upholstery on the other hand is easy to maintain, but its main disadvantage is that isn't appropriate for people with sensitive skin and allergies. No matter what kind of sofa will you choose there will come a moment to call specialists to refresh its look, but some fabrics require professionals cleaning rarely than others. When choosing the perfect couch ask the consultant at the shop about best upholstery for your needs.
