How To Make Your Sofa Family Friendly

Getting a new sofa isn’t just about yourself, it’s important to make sure your sofa is right for your home and family before you make a choice! Not only that, but it’s important to balance style, cost and practicality. Let’s face it, it feels bad to have to compromise on a specific fabric, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be happy with your choice of sofa. Larger sofas are bang on trend right now, so if you’re expecting any extra family additions don’t be shy to get as much space to cuddle up to as you need.

 

The first thing you have to consider when thinking about sofas is the fabric. Sticky fingers and muddy paws can often leave dirt that seeps into the sofa itself and stains. Avoid fabrics that easily absorb like this, leather is great for easy cleaning and wiping- but it’s also easily scratched by sharp clawed pets, so may not be the best option for animal lovers. Vinyl is a cheaper option if you’re looking for the same benefits of leather, it’s not as soft as other fabrics but it still looks and feels great! Wool is very durable and claw resistant, this fabric can be easily vacuumed for fur and is less likely to snag- but, it does easily absorb liquids and stain! If you’re worried about damaging your sofa, you can cover it with a different fabric that can then be removed and washed or replaced if there are any spills or tears. Surprisingly, plain microfiber sofas aren’t as difficult to clean as you think. The Wandsworth corner is a great addition to any family home and it's also available in dark colours, perfect for hiding those small stains you just can’t get up.
