Got an old sofa that's still got years of hard wear left in it - but it's looking a little tired and outdated? If your old sofa frame is still serviceable, but the upholstery is showing a little wear and tear, updating it could be just a matter of a few yards of fabric and some comfy new cushions. If you were smart enough to choose a sofa with a cushion back and seat, you can end up looking like you have a whole new couch by the time you're finished. Here's how to spiff up your old sofa with new upholstery and cushions.
Many an antique leather armchair, lamb's wool cushion or mohair chaise longue has fell victim to Do-It-Yourself upholstery cleaning. In an ideal world, we wouldn't make such a mess of things, but it's bound to happen. Think of the time you spilled Spaghetti Bolognese all over the carpet because you didn't want to miss X-Factor and there was no television in the dining room. A few simple home cleaning tips will go a long way to not ruining your furniture in the spirit of DIY upholstery cleaning.
The fabric of the sofa also plays a very important role in its selection. You have to decide whether your sofa will be used for formal occasions or will be used very regularly. Leather recliners can be great but may pinch your pockets slightly harder. If you have kids, the sofa will get some roughing up frequently. Children tend to drop food, juices and other junk on the sofa. The sofa, in such cases must be very simple and practical. It may have busy prints to hide the stains and dark colors to keep people from noticing the little \"accidents\", as the best detergents and dry cleaners may not be able to remove them completely.
