The sofa is one of the more important pieces of furniture you will have in your home. It is where you relax after a long day catching up on your favorite shows. It is where you will have deep meaningful conversations with your loved ones and where you will occasionally pass out when your room feels to far away.

The sofa is one of the more important pieces of furniture you will have in your home. It is where you relax after a long day catching up on your favorite shows. It is where you will have deep meaningful conversations with your loved ones and where you will occasionally pass out when your room feels to far away.

We can be fairly sentimental about our couches, and many people have fallen into the trap of keeping old worn out couches, covered in various stains and marks – a brief history of the time you have spent on it.

But like all furniture, we do have to replace our sofa’s because everything has its time and eventually you will need to move on. So here is how to know if its time to throw out your old college futon and invest in a real piece of furniture.

  1. If you can hear random creaks and pops every time you sit or get up from your sofa its time to replace it. Those sounds are often the results of structural damage and a sign that it is eventually going to break.
  2. No more lumbar support. You want to be comfortable on your sofa, after all you’ll be spending a fair amount of time on there. Being able to spend time on it without your entire body protesting when you try to move is key. Don’t let yourself suffer and just look into finding one with better padding and cushions.
  3. Odor. If there is one sense that immediately alerts us to something being wrong it is smell. Over the years, you would have sweated on the upholstery, spilt various food and drinks, had guests and animals (if you have pets) all make themselves comfortable on your couch.  This will lead to lingering odors. There is only so much you can take before people start making excuses to not show up at your home.
  4. Sometimes as we grow, so do our living spaces. We all hope to upgrade our homes till we find the ones we have dreamt about. Unfortunately that means that the tiny 2 seater that fit your studio will no longer look good in a larger living room. You’ve upgraded your home, you deserve the furniture to match! Treat yourself
