The corner sofa is indeed a great buy for the home. It is comfortable, versatile and practical. It is also available in many sizes, styles and designs. One other thing that you can personalize for your own piece is the sofa covering or the upholstery.
Look at the many corner sofas for sale and you will see many different types of upholstery and finishing. Generally, you can have either one of these types of upholstery; fabric, synthetic materials or leather. As with everything else, each of these types has its own advantages and disadvantages. You need to pick one that would best fulfill your needs and suits your lifestyle and personal preferences.
Fabric is the cheapest option among all three choices. Even though they are cheap, fabric is very attractive. You can pick from so many designs, from plain fabric to stripes to various motifs. They are also colorful and can add life to any space. On the downside, fabric can get stained quite easily and once it is wet, it takes a long time to dry. After a few years a fabric corner sofa may look worn and dirty.
Synthetic materials may sometimes cost a bit more than fabric. The advantage to these materials is that they are much easier to care for as they have leather like qualities. However as they are synthetic materials they do not breathe like fabric. After some time, a synthetic corner sofa may look fake and cheap.
Leather is the most expensive option among all three choices. Leather is great as it is durable and hardwearing. It does not absorb liquid and spills can be wiped off. Leather is also a material that gets better with age. Although it is expensive, a leather corner sofa is a great investment as it will last a long time.
With the above guide, you will be able to choose the right type of upholstery for your corner sofa.
