A leather sofa can be a real investment; other types of soft furnishings have a limited life span. Well cared for leather furnishings can last a generation without becoming old and jaded. Regular cleaning with the appropriate products is mandatory if you want a long and pleasant relationship with a classic piece of furnishing.
Spilt drinks and other accidents are easily wiped away with a damp cloth, without the nightmare of having to attempt to clean stains from fabric cushions and the foam beneath.
Although you are planning to move, you may not be planning on purchasing new furniture. After all, why throw away such good comfortable furniture that has already been broken into. There is also a simple solution for that. Slip covers for sofas, love seats and armchairs are a fantastic and inexpensive way to breathe new life into your dated living room set. For the bedrooms, whenever possible remove any headboards with a dated took and use fresh modern linen to dress your beds. Set the dining table with modern plates and a bright centerpiece to attract attention away from the older table. Re-upholster chairs for a fresh modern look. If your rooms are over flowing with furniture, it will be important to get some of it out of the house and arrange to store it until your house is sold.
Last but not least, you can use decorative items and accessories to attract the buyer's attention and tone down the dated look. Bright, bold and contrasting colors tend to attract the eye. The buyer will be focused on the colorful item and will probably be less likely to notice the dated decor. The most important accessories you can modernize are your window coverings. They are a dead giveaway and no matter how expensive and chic they are, if they are from another time, it will be a turnoff to the modern buyer. Other examples of using accessories to deter attention can be a contrasting colored throw placed on an older couch, which will catch the buyer's eye. The same is true for an old dresser. You can easily invest in a colorful, modern vase to offset the age of the dresser. Adding art to your walls will also have the same effect. The idea is to tone down the older furniture by enhancing it with modern accessories.
It may be the element forgotten most often, but lighting is a key point to modern furniture and design. The idea is to work as much as you possibly can with the available natural light. This is why window coverings are not as common. If they are included in the space, they are often blinds or verticals because of their clean lines and ease of use. The lighting styles themselves also carry the same traits. Some of the most popular styles include track lighting or pendants with straight, definite edges. An added benefit to this practice is the amount of energy you can save.
