Buying a microsuede sofa is an excellent choice if you're looking to replace your old sofa with
something modern and timelessly beautiful.
The fibers that make up the dense fabric of microsuede are designed to be as durable as possible
while still giving you the same level of elegance and sophistication that you would expect from
If you've never thought about a microsuede sofa or couch before, there are a few things you need to
keep in mind in order to get the best experience possible.
The common mistake that many
people make when it's time to get a new couch is that they simply jump into the excitement of selecting a great
microsuede sofa without taking proper inventory of the space that they already have.
This is a serious mistake
that could lead to either getting a sofa that is far too large for the space that you have, or getting one that
is too small to be really comfortable. The effect of this mistake is that you will have to rearrange your space
to avoid returning the microsuede sofa (sometimes spelled as two words: micro suede), which is a hassle in of
The better approach is to
measure the space accordingly and proceed from there. You'll want to actually take the time and measure the
entire space that you have to work with. Professional decorators often do this to make sure that their changes
will properly reflect the true space they have to work with for their clients' homes.
So, what you will want to
measure is not only the total space taken up by your current sofa, but the space around the sofa. After all,
your new microsuede sofa or couch will be too nice just to sit on its own. You'll naturally want to include some
end tables and even a nice rug to go with the new furniture. Measuring the space is the best way to make sure
that you will have plenty of room to work with.
Be sure to note all your
measurements down in a space where you can find them easily; you'll want to have those measurements handy when
you actually go online to browse the selection of microsuede sofas, particularly if you're looking for a
microsuede sectional sofa, or perhaps even a fold out sleeper sofa.
If the measuring process
sounds daunting, don't forget that it doesn't have to be a solo project -- enlist the help of a friend or family
member to make the process flow as smoothly as possible.
Once you have all the
measurements in place, it's okay to think about the visual aspect of buying a microsuede couch. How many
cushions do you want your new sofa to have? Color matters as well -- the right color can not only set off a room
properly, but take stains a lot better than some of the brighter colors available.
Speaking of stains, if your
new microsuede sofa does happen to get a few stains, it's important to treat them immediately to protect the
fabric. There are specific microsuede cleaners available to help you protect the dense microsuede fibers, since
most cleaners will not be suitable for your sofa.
All things considered, a
good microsuede couch or sofa is a great purchase for anyone looking to update the look of their den, living
room, or family room. With the information in this guide, you should have no trouble getting a great microsuede
sofa that will last for many years to come!
