There are many reasons that you might consider replacing your couch. Here are some of the ways to know if it is time to update your current sofa.
The couch is the undisputed champion of seating for most living rooms. It is the anchor upon which homeowners decorate the room. So, how do you know when it is time for a new one? Here are five signs it’s time to replace your couch.
A Sinking Feeling (in Your Couch)
Getting up from your couch should never be a chore, but it could become one if your cushions are worn. Sinking into the couch leads to discomfort and pain, so if you suddenly find that the floor would be more comfortable than the couch, then it’s time to get a new one.
Frayed at the Edges
Damage to the upholstery of your couch comes from many sources, including children, pets, sunlight, and stains. While you can expect to notice some wear and tear, once you can see the padding of the cushions through the upholstery, it is time to consider an upgrade.
Another sign it’s time to replace your couch is when you start to hear noises when you sit down. With time and use, your couch is bound to wear down. If you have any reason to believe there is structural damage to your couch, you should stop using it immediately to avoid the risk of injury.
After using a couch for some time, there will likely be sticky spills, ugly stains, and repulsive stenches. Similar to fraying, there are many causes for odors. If scrubbing and steam cleaning don’t remove the smell, then it may be time to look at new couches.
A Change of Scenery
Time changes everything, and your tastes are no exception. It may be that you suddenly dislike your couch’s style or the color of the fabric. Or perhaps it just doesn’t fit in with the interior design of the living room in your new house. Whatever the reason, if you find yourself inventing excuses to avoid using your loveseat, then think about buying a new one.
