Leather. This timelessly eloquent and the ever-trending fiber is the leather that can make a very durable upholstery for your fabric sofas. Although it is the most costly material to go for, it can be the perfect choice for the people who have toddlers or pets using the sofas. However, using the sharp object is a big no-no in their case. Despite all that, the interior padding of the sofa can be the most damage proof and water repellent in case of the leather upholstery. Being ultra durable, leather sofas are a handsome choice.
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.
When you buy a sofa, you expect it to last a number of years. In order for this to happen, you must make sure you are purchasing a good quality product. This will also save you money in the long run as you won`t need to replace parts or the whole sofa. Don`t be afraid to ask questions about a sofa`s quality when shopping. Make sure every part of it (internal and external) has a warranty and that there are no shortcuts such as real leather on the seats but artificial leather on the back of the sofa. If they are taking shortcuts on the outside, you don`t know what shortcuts they`ve taken on the inside.
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.
Vinyl Fabric With its rare susceptibility to stains and a clean look, this synthetic material is only seldom used to make the fabric sofa coverings. Matching the excellent levels of elegance and litheness that a leatherette sofa can indulge into your interior, this vinyl material has acquired a good position in the market. The extremely low dust affinity and high forbearance for the normal wear and tear makes it one of its kinds. However, sharp objects can rip the fabric off easily.
One main decision is whether you are going to go for a leather or a fabric sofa. A few questions to ask yourself are: how much use will this sofa get? What kind of area is it in and therefore what kind of spills is it going to be prone to? If it is a high-use area, leather is durable, easy to clean and non- absorbent for spills and smells. With professional help, minor tears or scratches can be repaired with great results. Fabric, on the other hand, takes a bit more maintenance.
