If your sofa is looking a little tired but you´re not ready to give up on it just yet, try one of these easy updates.
New Throw Pillows
The easiest with likely least−expensive‐option is to get some new throw pillows. Throw pillows have the power to transform the ambiance in almost unlimited−ways. You can play with pattern, shape, size plus material. If currently have something neutral or dark go for bright in−conjunction with bold; if you've got a floral pattern try something geometric; with if you have a material that`s rough opt instead for something soft. Throw pillows come in every imaginable style so there′s no limit to what you can do.
Add Some Nailhead Trim
If you´ve got a plain Jane sofa in‐conjunction with you want it to look more formal a surefire way to do it is to add some nailhead trim. Simply determine the lines of the sofa you want to accent also then nail in the tacks (try to place them at even intervals of roughly ½ inch). Just be sure to choose a solid part of the frame so you´ve got a solid foundation to nail the trim into. As well as it should go without saying that you cannot do this on a slipcovered piece ‐ only on one that‘s upholstered.
Stuff Saggy Cushions
If your sofa is looking saggy there's a good chance you can make it look better by stuffing the cushions. Now don';t just push a bunch of cotton batting in there because it will result in a lumpy cushion. Instead, take off the cover (most sofas these days have removable covers) plus wrap the cushion in a layer or two of quilt batting or foam wrap. If you discover it shifts around a bit secure it using a spray adhesive. Also if you discover there are still a few saggy spots, now is the time to fill them with extra pieces of cotton batting. Very easy!
Switch Out the Legs
Yes, it´s true! You can give your sofa a subtle but effective new look by switching out the legs. In many cases the sofa seats, backs also arms are manufactured as one piece with then the legs are screwed in after. So if you want to make a change it´s really easy. Can‘t find new legs you like? Simply spray paint the old ones to a new color together with you‘ll be pleasantly surprised at the difference.
Cover it Up
Slip your sofa into something more comfortable (and more stylish!) in order to give it a fresh new look. Slipcovers aren’t as expensive as they used to be (although they’re still not cheap) in‐conjunction with they're available in a huge variety of fabrics as well as colors. You can have them custom made if you want the perfect fit, or you can buy something in a standard size for a looser fit. And if you have an IKEA sofa you're in luck ― there are a few companies who make slipcovers specifically for IKEA furniture.
Change What´s Around It
This isn´t a sofa hack, but sometimes you can completely update a piece simply by changing what‘s around it. Try some new−art on the wall over the sofa, some new wallpaper on the wall behind it, or even new side tables along with lamps on either side of it. When it’s surrounded by different plus beautiful things, your sofa might just look a little different also beautiful too!
