When replacing it is not on the cards, what can you do to transform an ugly old sofa? Let’s find solutions for this common design dilemma…

Whether it’s because you have young children, pets or simply lack the funds when replacing or reupholstering an ugly old sofa is out of the question, here are a few ways to transform it:

Puff it up

If your sofa looks sad and saggy, get those removable cushions reshuffled for a fuller, almost-as-good-as-new look.

Get the sofa steam cleaned, pop on a few gorgeous new scatter cushions and voilà, what was once a living room eyesore could now be a feature.

Let slip

If the upholstery has seen better days, you could buy a couch slipcover or try making one.
