Upholstery Hacks – How To Update An Old Sofa

Have you become tired with the same old looks of your sofa? With some amazing hacks, you can make your old sofa look highly attractive.

Here are top tips and tricks that will make your old look lively.

  • Buy Throw Pillows

Buying some new throw pillows is surely one of the most inexpensive and easiest options to redesign your old sofa. Throw pillows can simply change the whole ambiance in some amazing ways. You get a wide range of size, shape, material and patterns to choose from. Go for something bright and bold, if you neutral or dark currently.

Choose something geometric, if you currently have a floral pattern. Also, opt for something soft, if the current material is rough or edgy. There’s no limit to what you can do with throw pillows.

  • Fill Saggy Cushions

By stuffing the cushions, you can make your sofa look a lot better, if it has started looking saggy. Don’t just fill lots of cotton batting in the sofa as it will give you a lumpy cushion. In fact, you should first remove the cover and enfold the cushion in one or two layers of cotton batting (or any other similar material). You can use a good quality adhesive, if it shifts around a bit. If there are still find some sappy spots fill them with extra cotton batting.

  • Attach Nailhead Trim

A successful way to make your sofa look more ‘happening’ is to add some nailhead trim. First, figure out where the nailhead trim will look attractive. Secondly, mark the area properly and nail in the tacks. To get a solid foundation for nailing the trim, ensure that you choose a solid portion of the frame.

  • Change The Legs Of Your Sofa

By switching out the legs of your sofa, you can do wonders with its look. A more subtle, but effective look can be easily provided to the sofa by changing or installing new legs on the sofa. A single frame construction is usually not an ideal choice for sofas these days, majority parts of these furnishing items are made separately and assembled later, especially the legs.

Don’t want to change the legs? Then simply use spray paint to add new colour and texture to the legs. You’ll be amazed to see the difference it brings to the whole look of your sofa.

  • Cover Your Sofa

Use some comfortable and stylish covering for your sofa to provide it a fresh new look. Slipcovers aren’t expensive and are available in a wide range of colours and fabrics. If you want the perfect fit, you can get custom-made slipcovers for your sofa.

  • Change The Surroundings

This trick has not much to do with changes made for  the sofa instead you can change the background or area around your sofa set to make it look more beautiful and lively than before.

For better results, you must hire professional upholstery cleaners in Sydney who can deliver desirable results and make your upholstery look like brand new.
