When it comes to choosing a new sofa for your living room, we ask ourselves the question, which is the best sofa for my living room? A good place to start is to decide whether to purchase a fabric or leather model. This can be a tricky decision to make though, and most people seem to be divided over what is best,
To help you choose we’ve put together the pros and cons of both fabric and leather sofas, which we hope will help you to make a decision! Read on to find out which type of sofa suits you best.
One major issue people have with leather sofas is that they can sometimes get a bit hot and sticky in the summer, and then cold and uninviting in the winter.
But don’t let this put you off! You can beat this disadvantage by making many fabric throw pillows as a couple of throws and scatter cushions can transform your sofa into a cosy haven. Also during summer, you can make sure your AC unit is on always as to reduce the hotness of the room temperature
On the other hand, fabric is cosy all year round whatever the season, and to make it easy for you we have a range which has a perfect balance of both fabric and leather.
Interior design fashions change just as frequently as clothes on the high street, and what might seem like a trendy option now might not seem like such a good idea in 12 months’ time! With this is mind, it may be worth choosing a timeless leather sofa which will look great for years to come. Also, most exquisite and great looking sofa designs are in leather and will not look good with fabric finishing. If you want to show class and finesse, then leather finishing is a good option.
Care or Business of your household
If you have a busy household with children (or messy significant others) then leather can be easier to clean, as any spillages can just be wiped off with a cloth. Leather is also hypoallergenic which great news is for allergy sufferers, as it doesn’t harbor dust and mites. On the other hand, fabric sofas harbor sweat, dust, stains and get visibly dirty especially light colours sofas. This implies you can inhale the sweat of others and dirt while relaxing on the sofa. This is not the case with leather sofas. Within a short time, you are already thinking of re-upholstering the sofa.
A leather sofa can cost considerably more, but it may also last for a lot longer, so it’s more of an investment piece that will stand the test of time.
On the other hand, a fabric sofa costs less and more affordable, so when the time comes to change your décor in your living room, you won’t feel so guilty about upgrading. It’s also worth remembering that a lot of charities welcome donations of old sofas that still have plenty of life in them, so it can always bring pleasure to someone else’s home.
