How To Buy A Couch You Know Will Last
When you choose to buy a couch, it can be overwhelming due to the different price points and countless options. But, it is a very exciting experience since couches can make a space feel more livable and put together. It is important that you take the proper precautions to ensure your couch has a long life. You do not want to invest in a couch that will show wear and tear after just a few months.
So, let’s go over a few ways you can make sure the couch you are buying will last.
Make Sure The Couch Has A Sturdy Frame
The frame of a couch says a lot about how it has been constructed. You may love a couch you see in a store, but if it isn’t built properly, you will have problems. You should become aware of everything that is under the upholstery. Find out if the frame is made entirely from hardwood, not from softwood or any metal. Also, make sure the joints within the couch are sturdy and made from good materials like wooden dowels. If you can get answers to these, then you will know that the structure of the couch is of good quality.
Choose Strong Fabric
Considering you will most likely use your couch a lot, you want to make sure the fabric you sit or lounge on is durable. It should not tear or scratch, and be able to withstand multiple people. It is a bonus as well if the fabric is not easily stained, especially if you have young children or pets. Cotton, leather, and wool are all very smart fabric options. A good fabric will really help prevent you from having to buy a couch a year later due to it being worn out.
Check the Couch Cushions
For comfort reasons, you want to have comfy cushions. You do not want to be uncomfortable when you are trying to kick back and relax on your couch. It is worth it to invest in 100% down-filling cushions as they are the most durable and hold their shape. But, they are on the expensive side of the spectrum. Most cushions are 60% feathers and 40% down, which is still a good option. But, you should definitely avoid any cushions with only a poly foam core, as they will most likely wear out sooner than later.
