You should regularly flip your upholstered cushions (both the seat and the back cushions) depending on the frequency of their use. You will find that your upholstery will wear out evenly and your cushions will maintain their shape for longer. Do pay particular attention to the centre cushions on three-seat upholstered sofas. The centre seat is typically avoided by people – they’d rather sit on the side next to the armrest. If your sofas contain identical cushions for all 3 seats, switch the centre cushions with the ones on the sides regularly to ensure even wear, maintenance of cushion shape and protection for the upholstery on the 2 side seats.
The longer you avoid vacuuming your upholstery, the worse the damage. Dust settles on everything in your home, your upholstery included. Whenever you sit on your sofas and chairs, the weight forces the dust down deeper into the fibers of the upholstery. With prolonged periods of no maintenance, the dust acts like an abrasive, cutting and scraping your upholstery on a microscopic level, thus causing the material to wear out a lot faster.
You can either choose to make your covers from a single type of fabric or combine several different fabrics, colors, textures, and patterns. This is a really popular trend nowadays. Remember to always combine and contrast the colors of your cushions with the color of the sofa.
