Direct sunlight is bad for the fabric of the sofa, and if your sofa is made of leather, this is doubly true. So make sure the room you’ll be placing it in has a non sunny spot for your sofa to be in. And while you’re at it, make sure there aren’t any air vents nearby either.
You may think that “no eating and drinking on the sofa” are rules that are silly and only apply to children. But the fact is, spills can happen to anybody. And you really don’t want to deal with the spills and stains that food and drinks can cause. The best way to keep your corner sofa looking nice is to set up some simple rules and then follow them to the letter.
The hardest part of keeping your sofa looking good may be the daily upkeep you will need to do. This involves vacuuming the sofa cushions on a nearly daily basis. And you should also rotate where you sit on the sofa so that no one cushion wears out before the others. This requires thought and action, but it’s possible to do.
It’s true that corner sofas will eventually start to show their age. But yours doesn’t have to do that for a long time if you work at keeping it nice. And it doesn’t even require you to avoid using your sofa. It’s an expensive investment, but it’s one that is meant to be enjoyed.
