Keep a Tab on the Structural Foundation of Your Couch to Maximize Comfort

You sofa frame may be the reason of discomfort.

As a proud homeowner, you like to keep your house in tip-top shape. So it’s only natural that you ensure that your sofa or couch is both aesthetically pleasing and comfortable. The thing about sofa cushion filling is that over time it begins to break down and become fragments of the glorious block that it once was. Once it begins to disintegrate, you will then lose a significant amount of comfort and it will also start to look like it’s off-balanced and just plain wobbly.

How to Check Your Sofa Frame

Now, it’s important to note that you should find the source of the problem. Meaning, do you really need new cushions? Or is it the frame that’s causing the entire sofa to collapse in on itself. Many homeowners believe that they’ve fixed the problem, only to find out that it actually is the frame that needs repairs. First, take a look at the frame of the couch.

Does it look off-balanced? Does it creak? Is the wood tender? All of these signs are pointing to a structural issue. You can easily test it out by lifting the couch and placing it down slowly. If one of the legs touches the ground while the other is still lifted, the frame is beginning to wear down and you may need to purchase an entire new sofa. This is a common issue with cheaper couches. Once a significant amount of weight or pressure hits the frame, the wonky material will just impede on itself and begin to crack.
