Five Reasons to Invest in a Leather Sofa

It’s no secret that leather sofas are typically pricier than fabric options, but there are many reasons why investing in a leather sofa could be the right choice for you. Here, we look at five benefits of leather sofas to help you to make a decision.

Leather sofas are durable

Leather sofas are a great investment because their durability means that they’ll last for many years – and will continue to look as good as new if you take care of them.

A good quality leather sofa won’t crack or peel, and the material won’t sag over time as is often an issue with fabric sofas. The strength of leather makes it highly resistant to damage, such as tears or punctures, and any spillages won’t stain the material as they can be simply wiped away.

They’re undeniably timeless

You perhaps wouldn’t want a piece of furniture that’s going to last for years if it was going to go out of style, but this isn’t an issue when it comes to leather sofas.

Not only are there options available for both modern and traditional homes, you can also be sure that a leather sofa will complement almost any décor scheme – continuing to look on-trend no matter how often fashions change.

Leather sofas are hypoallergenic

If you suffer from allergies, you’ll find that a leather sofa is more suitable for your home than a fabric option. This is because dust and other allergens can’t penetrate into leather and you can easily wipe them clean of anything that might initiate sneezing and watery eyes.

They come in a variety of colours

Something that can often deter people from purchasing a leather sofa is that they think they’ll be limited when it comes to colour, but that’s not the case.

G Plan Leather Sofa
For example, the stylish G Plan Vintage The Sixty Five Large Leather Sofa comes in a range of neutral colours, but can also be bought in striking petrol blue or bold claret red.

Gone are the days when only brown and black leather options were available, as now there’s a rainbow of tones to choose from when selecting your new leather seating.

The Cromwell Chesterfield Leather Sofa is also a great choice and comes in a variety of colours including this luxurious Sellvagio Green tone.

Leather sofas are easy to maintain

Any item of furniture that’s easy to clean has an advantage, and leather sofas are absolutely perfect for low maintenance households.

To take care of your leather sofa, it’s advised that you apply a conditioner every 6 to 12 months as this will help to keep the material moisturised and supple, plus it will protect it from absorbing dirt or grime too.

Other than that, simply wiping it over with a cloth when required is all that’s needed to keep it looking great!
