Choosing what material to buy your couch in is definitely not an easy choice. With so many factors that go into making the decision, here’s why the leather sofa is our personal favourite.
- Easy Maintenance
One of the best things about leather is how easy it is to maintain. It doesn’t stain easily and by following a few simple guidelines, you’ll be able to have it in good condition for a long time. Give it a good deep clean once or twice a year and wipe it down every so often and you’re set!
It’s unbelievable the amount of stuff that collects in a sofa over time. Not only dust, but hair, food and mold among many other things. Your sofa might look clean, but if you were to open it up and take a look inside you might be quite surprised with what you find!
Leather doesn’t let dust mites go through its surface, you could even say it’s anti-allergen because it’s not a woven material like fabric is; it’s a solid piece of material that is stitched together. So, if you, or someone in your family has allergies caused by dust mites or pet dander, consider switching out your fabric sofa for a leather one. They are stylish, comfortable AND hypoallergenic! It’s a win-win for everyone in the family.
Here is a material that, if of high quality, ages well and tends to last a long time. In fact, it’s not an uncommon occurrence to find that the hide gets comfier and prettier as time goes by! Like a good wine or cheese, leather just gets better with time.
For us, one of the better things about leather is that it’s a very versatile material. It goes with everything and can fit with every style. It’s a material that can go modern, retro, classic or rustic. No matter what you are envisioning for you home, leather can help you achieve it.
So, whether you are looking for a couch for your family home or just for you, leather is a great choice if you are looking to invest in a piece of furniture that will stay with you for years to come. It’s durable, versatile and has basically zero maintenance.
