Buying a new sofa is a major purchase, and not something you want to have to replace for many years.
Sofas and lounges vary a lot in price and in quality, but most of us expect to get a few years’ worth of use out of even the cheapest suite.
With high quality furniture items, it is not unreasonable to expect years – or even decades – worth of use from them.
Some furniture manufacturers may prefer their customers to replace their lounge furnishings more regularly than this, and this is more likely to happen when they are constructed out of cheap materials.
Well-made furniture, on the other hand, has a far longer lifespan because it is intended to withstand the tests of time without falling apart and needing to be replaced.
High quality furniture is designed and manufactured with durability and longevity in mind, using materials which can easily meet the challenges of daily wear and use.
While many of the decisions about durability have been made by manufacturers, there are choices that consumers can make in order to get a long life out of their sofa.
The type of upholstery can make a huge difference when it comes to getting the longest possible life out of a a sofa, as some types of covering are far more durable than others.
Leather, for example, is well known for being able to withstand years of use without losing its elegant appearance.
It is also easy to clean and maintain, as it is far less absorbent than most fabric upholstery, so leather may be convenient for people with small children or pets that sleep on their sofa.
Leather, however, needs to be cared for properly to get the most out of it.
Exposing a leather couch to sunlight can cause the leather to dry out and crack, so care must be taken to avoid direct sun.
Plush sofas are designed to last a long time, so much so that it is guaranteed.
