So you’ve had the same sofa for a few years now and you’re bored of it. You can’t afford to buy a new one so what do you do? At Meadows & Byrne we love a good interior design project and there’s nothing like bringing an old piece of furniture back to life. With our help you can transform your old couch into something new and wonderful that won’t break the bank.
A new cushion can work wonders
Would you believe that with a couple of new cushions and a beautiful throw you can have what looks like a brand new sofa? It’s true! With our advice we can guarantee that no one will know it’s the same old sofa that you’ve always had. We have all you need under one roof to make this magical transformation, from boring old futon to an amazing Pinterest-worthy sofa.
When buying cushions think patterns. A plain sofa can be up-graded very quickly by adding in some bold prints. The prints on the cushions don’t have to match, be brave with them and find a few different patterns that work well together. The cushions can be all different shapes and sizes too, the more variety the better in this case.
Create a cosy look and feel to your sofa and add an extra element of comfort by adding in chunky knits. Layering is key when creating a luxurious and inviting sofa.
Try adding some decorative pieces like a side table, with some plants, candles and books or a pouf next to the sofa to create a whole new environment to relax in.
A good quality sofa is something worth investing in at the very beginning, as it will last a long time. But, don’t worry about the look too much, as this can be changed overtime with these few, quick and easy steps.
