Corner sofas look great in any room. Regardless of size, style and design and corner sofa can make your home look instantly more attractive and interesting. When purchasing a corner sofa, one of the things that you need to think about is the sofa covering or the upholstery.
There are three types of coverings or upholstery that you can get for your sofa. There is the fabric, synthetic materials and leather covering that you can pick from. Each type of course has its own advantages, so it is up to you to pick one that best fulfill your needs and fits with your budget and lifestyle. Budget is important, but it should not be the main deciding factor, as you may be happy with the price that you’ve paid but may end up with a sofa that you hate after several months.
Comparatively the cheapest option among all three is the fabric covering. Corner sofas in fabric look great in the home, and you can pick any color you like, so it is easy to match the sofa to the rest of the room. However the downside is that fabric stains easily. If you get it wet, it can take quite some time to dry too. After sometime a fabric sofa may look worn and dirty.
Your second option is to pick synthetic covering for your sofa. These materials will cost a bit more than the fabric ones. These look like leather and are also easy to clean. So you can choose this sofa for easy maintenance. However, a synthetic covering cannot breathe as the other two alternatives, and after some time your corner sofa may look cheap and fake.
Your final option is leather. Leather covering is the most expensive option amongst all three choices. However your investment is well worth it as leather is a durable hardwearing material that lasts a long time. It can be easily cleaned and any spills can be simply wiped off, as it does not absorb any liquid. Leather will also get softer and more comfortable through the years, so your corner sofa will be a joy to sink into.
Now that you know the advantages and disadvantages of each type of covering, you can make a more informed decision on the type of upholstery that you want for our corner sofa. So choose wisely so that your sofa can be your companion for many years to come.
