Making big purchases is difficult, and choosing furniture is hard when there are thousands of options. We want to make the best long term choice for ourselves and family. What color, what size, material, and look do we want to go for? There are positives and negatives to every material, but there are lots of great aspects to leather furniture. Although it sometimes comes with a more expensive price tag, there are a lot of pros that make it worth the investment. Check out why you should choose leather furniture in your next purchase.
Easy to Clean
Life is crazy, everyone is busy and no one wants to spend time cleaning their furniture. Young children, messy teens and pets in your home cause wear on your furniture. Leather furniture makes cleaning spills up easy. Simply wipe up the spill and continue on with your day. No red stains on your white furniture. We love our furry family members, but sometimes pet hair can be annoying. Fortunately, a quick swipe with a damp cloth or vacuum gets rid of the hair quickly!
Leather is pretty. It has a very classy and prestigious appearance and is associated with top of the line, premier products. Leather pulls the whole room together and gives it a very sophisticated appearance. It is very timeless and can be used in many homes with different styles or vibes. Leather also comes in a variety of rich hues and tones ranging from deep, dark shades to beautifully vibrant hues. Depending on your aesthetic you can choose what shade you prefer.
Do you suffer from seasonal allergies? Pollen, animal dander and other allergens won’t stick to a leather sofa the way it does to a fabric sofa. Fabric upholstery often sucks in the allergens, hiding them away as they continue to affect you year round. They can’t sink into leather well, and can be whisked away with a damp dusting cloth. Leather also repels dust, so it’s much easier to keep clean. It’s a very popular option for those sensitive to common allergens.
Leather has its many perks and a big one is its long lifespan. Keeping it clean, taking care of it, and moisturizing it regularly will keep it in great condition for years. Treat your fine leather as you do your own hands. Moisturize and keep it away from temperature extremes. Just like our skin, too much sun will cause it to prematurely age.
Leather is a flexible and strong material with very good resistance to tears and punctures. Most leather furniture is made from top grain leather to help them be durable and age well.
Dusting leather furniture once a week with a soft, damp cloth is usually the best way to preserve it. You can also periodically use a leather cleaner for a deep clean. Make sure to follow instructions for your exact material and what cleaner you are using. You don’t want to use something that may ruin it, so double check all your products!
If you ever run into any problems, we perform leather repairs. We can help you smooth down cracks, sew up holes, or re-dye your leather back to its original color.
