When it comes to decor, and furniture choices, some things divide us. There are things that some people love, and others can’t stand. Some people like bold patterns, others prefer plain. Some favour a feature wall, others think they look ridiculous. Leather often falls into this category, especially when it comes to sofas.
Some people love nothing more than a leather sofa. They think they look stylish and classic and can’t imagine their home without one. Others, can’t stand them. They find them uncomfortable and old-fashioned and have always opted for fabric sofas and seats. However, leather sofas can have plenty of appeal. Here’s a look at some of the reasons that you should consider investing in a leather sofa.
Fashions come and go in home decor just like they do in clothes. Leather sofas are always fashionable. They always look cool. They are stylish and sophisticated. They give your room a touch of class, no matter what you do with the rest of your decor. In ten years, your sofa will still look luxurious and classy.
They Are Easy to Clean
One of the very best things about a leather sofa is that it will be easy to clean. They are very resistant to water, so spills can be easily wiped off. Even tough stains are relatively easy to get off with a suitable leather cleaner, as they don’t become ingrained in the leather. This is especially useful if you’ve got kids, pets or a messy partner.
They also don’t attract dust or hide mess like fabric sofas do. You won’t need to hoover them or wash the covers. They just need the occasional wipe down and treating with a leather cleaner once a year to maximise their life.
It Will Always Match Your Decor
Timeless pieces like leather sofas match everything. When you redecorate, you won’t need to worry that your couch will no longer match your walls, your other furniture or other elements of your decor. Your sofa will still match, and it’ll look great. This can save you a fortune, as you won’t need to replace it every time you decorate.
A Leather Sofa is Easy to Accessorise
If you do fancy a change, you still don’t need to replace the whole sofa. You can add a throw or some cushions to change the whole appearance, without worrying that they won’t match or suit, or that the colours will catch.
Throws and cushions are a cheap way to change your decor, and they’ll add extra comfort and warmth in the winter time when leather can feel cool.
With care and regular cleaning and treatment, a leather sofa can last for a long time. It’s less likely to tear or rip than fabric and can be easy to repair if it does get damaged. A leather sofa might be more expensive initially, but it could last for a lot longer than a fabric option of the same size. It can be tempting to opt for faux leather to save money, but real leather could last for up to four times longer.
