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.
Start taping the blankets on sofa in the middle (vertical), somewhere half the total height of the sofa and then go along the seating area from side to side. Starting just under the armrests and going along the frame right under the seat from one side to the other. Make sure to tuck and fold loose corners of the blanket neatly around the corners of the sofa and catch them with tape, so they cover the sofa sides and corners properly and do not hang loose. This will hold all four blankets in position. Go around over the same layer of tape at least 4 -5 times. This will provide strong support for carrying the sofa.
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.
The most important factor to take into consideration is the size of the sofa and the space you have available for it in your living room or the area where it would be standing, especially the width and the depth. Start by measuring the room and remember to also measure the doorframes and staircases your sofa should fit through when you bring your sofa home.
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.
Already, buying a sofa is a tedious task, and with this abundant of designs and colors, we tend to go Topsy-turvy and then eventually fail to decide the best one. And when it is a fabric sofa set, the confusion level doubles, because of there being numerous eye-capturing and unique, comfortable choices available. So, to overcome this tohubohu, one should bullet-list their requirements and their preferences in the first place and then try to match as many required qualities as possible.
