A day earlier I was sitting with my family, and we were having a casual conversation about what should be done & what not, at our new home renovation. We are shifting into our new house within a week or two, and we still have so many things to get done. Amidst our conversation of buying the perfect sofa set, my brother came up with an idea to go for something different this time. At present, we have a five-seater Fabric Sofa Set. Then my father said, "There are only two options to choose from. Either we can go for Wooden Sofa sets or different color and print of fabric sofa sets." I and my brother were surprised as it was an understatement. That was the moment I decided that everyone should be aware of the distinctive types of sofa sets available in the market.
The style of your sofa should complement the style of your house and your existing furniture. It should also function in a way that suits your lifestyle and functions for you. Buying a low-line, sleek sofa that looks great in the showroom amongst contemporary furniture is great if you have a modern home. But if you really prefer a comfy, cushioned seat that you can sink into, keep looking for the one that will suit you and your home.
Bear in mind that the blanket wrap will add an inch or two to the dimensions of your sofa and this can make a big difference. Sometimes it is better to just move the sofa out as is and then wrap it in the moving truck. Most of the time experienced movers can maneuver the sofa-bed out by skillfully rotating it around the corners and carrying it through doorways just at the right angle. But that is not always the case and forcing the sofa through a tight spot is the recipe for moving damage, which can be done to the sofa itself or to the walls and doors of your home.
After acknowledging the right size of the sofa, you need to have a frame check. The frame of that sofa should be sturdy and strong. The frames are generally made of either wood, metal or plastic. If it is made up of wood, then ensure that it is made up of solid wood. The sofa should not wobble on the corners. You also need to check how the edges of the frame are held together. They should not be glued but attached with the help of screws and bolts. This will make the joints stronger and more reliable.
A sofa with chunkier or heavier overall proportions will appear larger in the room, whilst a sofa that is raised from the floor and has slim arms and seat proportions will appear lighter and visually consume less space. Use this to your advantage, look for heavier styles if you are looking to fill a large room and vice versa, and be aware of the impact the showroom has on the look of the sofa, in general showrooms will be very open and have high ceilings, making all sofas look smaller than they are.
Microfiber fabric. The most recent and the most loved kind of material for upholstering your fabric sofas with all the glory is this type. Suede and supple to touch, the microfiber fabric sofas can be very easy to clean and are soft to the core. This is because they are also constituted of the polyester material that promises to safeguard the endurance in the sofa and the soft material makes the sofa drool-worthily comfortable. The tiny, compactly arranged fibers can make an excellent trap for the dust and thus prevent them from penetrating deep into the sofa. It can be the best choice for the people who have respiratory allergies.
