Wrapping a sofa bed for moving with moving blankets requires some skill and experience. Sofas, and especially sofa-beds, are bulky and heavy furniture. If you do not have experience, wrapping a sofa bed with moving blankets it is probably better left for professional household movers on the move day. On the other hand, a Quilted Sofa Cover can easily be used for moving a couch, and then reused to cover a sofa for long term storage, protection from dirt, dust, pet claws, fading from sun exposure, etc. Regular sofas normally do not present much of a challenge, because even though they are large - they are light-weight, but a large heavy sofa-bed might cause you trouble on the move day.
Cotton Fabric: Although cotton fabric can be the best choice if you are not planning to make the heavy daily use of the fabric sofa, it can be prone to wearing and tearing like none other. Cotton has a breathing quality which makes it even more comfortable and the beautiful designs and patterns can make the room more alluring on the whole. Placing the pure cotton fabricated sofa in the highly trafficked room is a big no-no because it can accumulate dirt and dust, eventually causing dark stains. There is no denying the fact that the cotton material upholstery looks the most adorable, but it will be sagacious if we keep it in a room which is visited the least frequently.
Now stand the sofa up on its side and wrap across in at least three sections: right over the armrests, and in the middle. For very long sofas make two midsection bands to catch the edges of the side blankets. Fold the excess of the moving blankets over the bottom. (There is no need to cover the whole bottom, unless you want to, but it is important to cover the corners.) Remove the legs, if removable. If legs cannot be removed - wrap and tape the moving blanket around the legs of the sofa-bed. Flip the sofa and do the same for the other side.
Be sure to find a color that fits and compliments your room. Sofas come in a great variety of colors and patterns and you should choose very wisely. You will most probably not find a perfect match for the material of your other furniture, but they should coordinate and look good together. When choosing a color for you sofa, think practical. Your new couch could look disastrous after a few months if you chose a white sofa and your little one wipes his chocolate fingers on it or your puppy jumps on it with muddy paws. Black or very dark colors are not recommended if you have animals living on the couch and leaving their hair behind. So, think about who and what the sofa will be used for before choosing a color.
Covers for your sofa would be recommended if your sofa is a light color, you have kids or if you occasionally have dinner on your sofa. Having a spare cover could save you money and humiliation rather than having to replace your sofa after a while. Covers are not that expensive and could be handy if you change the color scheme of the room and just need to get a new matching sofa cover instead of buying an entire new sofa.
When purchasing a sofa, it is easy to get confused or frustrated at the sheer range of colours, materials and styles, not to mention the various levels of quality and pricing. Be careful not to make a decision on impulse or out of frustration. Here are a few tips to make the process simple and ensure that you don`t end up regretting your purchase.
