If you have a couch that no longer fits into your décor or is outdated, the first thing you might think of doing is replacing it. But of your couch is in fairly good condition and it’s comfortable, don’t even think of throwing it away or of buying another one. Instead, try a few ideas to revamp your old couch and give it a fresh new look and feel.
It’s not uncommon to have an old couch that is starting to show signs of wear with stains or lumps on the cushions and many of us get comfortable with a couch that we’re use to. But if you don’t want to part with your comfy couch, maybe you can detract from it by adding a nice ottoman in front of it.
But if its definitely time to revamp your old couch, the first thing you need to do is assess what’s not working with your couch. If it’s the color scheme then you may need to change the color of the décor around the couch. One idea is to paint an accent wall in a complimenting color and move your couch in front of the wall. Adding color coordinated table lamps to the couch end tables or getting a contemporary centerpiece to your coffee table may go a long way to freshen up the look of your old couch.
However, to revamp the couch itself, you can always add decorative throw pillows or buy a new slipcover for your couch, which will quickly make your old couch look like a new one for a quarter of the cost of replacing it. If you don’t like the idea of buying a standard slipcover, you can consider having a custom slipcover made to fit the shape of your couch precisely. It may cost a bit more, but is the perfect solution if you plan on keeping your old couch for a while.
Another great way to revamp your old couch without entirely covering it up or spending a lot of money is to add a throw blanket. A beautifully designed throw in a chenille or velour fabric that sits over the back of your couch will add both comfort, warmth and elegance to the look of your old couch.
