Many an antique leather armchair, lamb's wool cushion or mohair chaise longue has fell victim to Do-It-Yourself upholstery cleaning. In an ideal world, we wouldn't make such a mess of things, but it's bound to happen. Think of the time you spilled Spaghetti Bolognese all over the carpet because you didn't want to miss X-Factor and there was no television in the dining room. A few simple home cleaning tips will go a long way to not ruining your furniture in the spirit of DIY upholstery cleaning.
Easier to Clean: When it comes to upholstery, the material holds onto stains. Even when a spill is cleaned up immediately, there will be residue left behind. In homes with kids and pets, these stains can transform a nice-looking couch into a mottled mess in no time flat. Luckily, leather is easy to clean. Spills wipe up easily, and sticky messes can be cleaned with the help of a damp cloth and mild detergent. The material won't absorb liquid and resists stains as long as it's well maintained.
If you are in the market for a new living room or family room set, there are a few options on the market for you to consider. The most obvious is a couch, a love seat and a chair set. Other options include a hide-a-bed or recliner instead of a traditional couch or chair. Another great option are sectional sofas. A sectional is composed of multiple sections (hence, \"sectional\") of furniture, that fit together to form one large piece of furniture. Let's take a look at the different pieces available, the purpose they serve and why a sectional may suit your life.
The other sofa option that is real popular in the sectional is the sleeper sofa. This is great for when guests stay over and you do not have a guest room. Just pull out the bed and you are good to go. The sleeper sofa is also fun just to pull out sometimes when having a movie night.
More Comfortable Than Upholstery: Upholstery provides a thin barrier between those using the furniture and the structure of the cushion. Over time, the shape of the couch will change and the materials will break down. This leads to an uncomfortable, lumpy couch that no one wants to sit on. As leather sofas age, the material becomes more comfortable. Rather than breaking down, these sofas conform to body weight more readily. In fact, many owners note that their older couch feels nicer than it did when it was brand new.
