Upholstered furniture is one of the essential attributes of almost any modern apartment. And since it is quite widely represented in the market, it is quite difficult to choose the right one. After all, turning to a furniture salon and not knowing the basic nuances of her choice, you can choose a not quite high-quality option. And taking into account the fact that it is acquired mainly for a long time, the wrong choice will remind of itself for many years.
The main criterion is size. After all, to fit into a small room a large sofa will be an impossible task. It should be borne in mind that higher quality furniture at a price much more expensive. Therefore, it is worth considering in advance what part of the family budget you are ready to allocate in advance for the purchase of upholstered furniture. It’s possible to save a little when purchasing a standard set of two armchairs and a sofa. It will be much cheaper than buying these interior items individually.
The frame of modern upholstered furniture is made of a wide variety of materials. In the most inexpensive options, fiberboard and chipboard are used, but such sets also have lower quality. In addition, such furniture is also dangerous to human health, since glue is used in the production process of these materials, which subsequently is a source of toxic fumes.
Much more reliable are considered wooden and metal frames or their combination. The metal option is more suitable for those who strive to constantly make permutations. A fairly inexpensive option would be a combination of metal in the frame with chipboard.
Natural material is not a good upholstery option. She wipes off very quickly. It is better to prefer leather, albeit artificial, although for many such sets are more associated with office sets. Leather furniture sets with a thickness of about 5 mm are more durable.
If we talk about artificial fabric, it is better to choose a sofa with upholstery from one that is easier to clean. At the same time, it should crumple and stretch minimally, as well as be high strength.
It is also necessary to inspect the seams on the upholstery. They must be done neatly and evenly.
One of the nuances that must be checked before purchase is the elasticity of the sofa or chairs. In inexpensive options, the most often used foam rubber, softer - for mattresses or backs, harder - in the armrest. Between its layers batting or synthetic winterizer is often laid.
Some manufacturers place the springs inside. It is imperative that before making your final choice, check them for creakiness.
It must be remembered that upholstered furniture should initially be comfortable in every way. Therefore, it is worth choosing it with all family members, taking into account all the possible nuances. Then everyone will be able to enjoy their holidays with comfort for more than one year or even a decade, which is important if there is no way to change the situation quite often.
