After going through the process personally, I am excited to share our new sofa (I am OBSESSED!) along with some tips to help guide you as you shop for a sofa. Hopefully, these tips teach you how to choose the right sofa for your room. Learn all there is you need to know about buying a fabric sofa in our complete guide.
And finally, you can find so many bargains for secondhand or vintage furniture online via Facebook Marketplace, OfferUp, Craigslist and even neighborhood sites such as NextDoor. By shopping at estate sales on Saturdays, I have to accept that a lot of the popular or coveted items are gone, but I also get lower prices and more negotiating power. With dye, you can easily freshen and even change up the color! Plus a new couch can cost several thousands of dollars and take months to receive. I cannot even tell you how overjoyed I am to have found something that really gets out stains, without leaving water marks behind. A modular couch offers flexibility for families who want to switch up the layout for different occasions or as their needs grow and change. They tend to be harder, but still comfortable; many companies offer washable covers to combat messy toddlers or pets.

BUT, on the flip side, without this seemingly unredeemable chair, I would have never resorted to trying out the Bissell Little Green Pro.

And at $30 for a bottle to cover an 8-foot sofa, the cost is well worth it. I was afraid of making it all gooey again, and the only info I could find on cleaning rawhide off upholstery was to do your best by scraping it off with with a butter knife. Following this, my dog came and stuck a wet gooey rawhide in between the cushions (again, unbeknownst to me) until I found it crusty and hardened on the fabric the next day. I don’t even know where she got the rawhide — she usually chews on her bone. Ken used his stain-whacking skill and was able to remove almost every sign of stains and then seal the cushions with Ultra Guard’s Stain Free.
Regularly rotating or flipping a high-quality mattress may help maximize its lifespan. Box springs last about 10 years, but most modern mattresses don’t need one. Peeling paint, a wobbly base and finicky drawers or knobs that frequently come loose are signs your dresser needs to be replaced. Further, if it seems like it tips forward slightly when full or simply isn’t big enough for all your clothes, you might want to spring for a new one.

But if you’re just a little klutzy and prone to spills, consider a chemical fabric protectant that repels liquids long enough for you to wipe them up before anything sets in. Once completed, there will be cushions resting on top of the sofa’s deck. However, I still wanted the deck to be soft and have some padding. So, I used 1 inch cushion foam and cut it wide and long enough so that it could be tucked through to the back and outer sides of the sofa frame.
