  5. Should I Go With Threshold Delivery or Upgrade to White Glove?

    Should I Go With Threshold Delivery or Upgrade to White Glove?

    At BuildASofa all pricing includes Threshold Delivery, but what does that really mean? And what is the difference between Threshold Delivery and White-glove Delivery?

    THRESHOLD DELIVERY:

    • Included in all pricing!
    • The delivery company will place the wrapped pieces inside the first covered space of your residence or apartment/condo complex. 
    • You are responsible for getting the pieces to the right room or space. 
    • You will also need to unwrap everything and dispose of the trash.
    WHITE-GLOVE DELIVERY:
    • A flat $149 for any sized order! 
    • The delivery company will take care of everything! Just sit back, relax, and get ready to enjoy your new sofa :)
    • The delivery company will set the sofa or sectional in the room of your choosing. 
    • The delivery company will unwrap everything, install legs if needed, and they will also haul all of the trash away for you. 
    So what do we recommend? Well, it really depends on what you're ordering... For a single sofa that is going in the front room, threshold delivery is probably your best option. You can have it unwrapped and in place in no time and all of the trash will probably fit in your city trash can. If you're ordering a sofa bed or a big 3 piece sectional we would suggest going with white-glove since there will be a ton of trash and you don't want to try wrangling a sofa bed up the stairs and into the office!

  6. Keep Your Sofa Cushions Looking Great for Years! - Custom Sofa and Sectional Maintenance

    Keep Your Sofa Cushions Looking Great for Years! - Custom Sofa and Sectional Maintenance

    Just like your leather shoes needing a shine or a re-sole every year or two, your custom sofa or sectional needs a little maintenance to stay looking good for years to come. Here are our best tips for keeping your custom sofa or sectional looking good!

    1. Rotate Your Cushions!

    • We recommend rotating your cushions with the seasons (4 times per year)
    • Don't just rotate them, but flip your cushions as well! All BuildASofa cushions are removable to make maintenance a breeze!
    • Rotating your cushions will help keep your sofa from getting odd wear patterns where people always sit.  

    2. Dust Your Sofa

    • If you have a hand vac at the house, these work best! Here is the one we keep around and have had great success with! Hand Vaccum
    • Don't have a hand vac? No problem! Dusting your sofa or sectional with a soft bristled brush once or twice a month is perfect. 
    • Disting your sofa or sectional will keep your sofa looking good and keep the fabric from breaking down early. 

    3. Keep Your Sofa Free From Pilling 

    • Fibers transferring onto your sofa or sectional from your favorite blanket? No worries, use this fabric shaver to give your sofa or sectional new life! Fabric Shaver

  9. Add A Sofa Bed to ANY BuildASofa Sofa or Sectional!

    At BuildASofa you can add a Sofa Bed to ANY of our sofa or sectional styles and we offer both a standard or COZY mattress as options. Sofa sleepers come in Queen, Full and Twin sizing but your sofa or sectional size will be the deciding factor in which options are available to you. Typicall the Queen sofa sleeper will fit in any full sized sofa!

    Many of our styles can be turned into a sleeper with no additional customization charges like the KENSINGTON, CANWICK or TELFORD, but some may need slight adjustments to the front rail to house the sleeper. Models that will need additional customization have 5+ inch legs with a thin front rail. 

    Do you think a sofa sleeper would be a great addition to your home? Give us a call today to talk with a designer about all the pros and cons to adding a sofa bed and see if it is the right choice for you and your family!

    A few pro tips on sofa sleepers:

    • Sofa sleepers require your cushions to sit on a mechanism as opposed to springs like a standard sofa so we typically recommend our soft foam option in the seats to offset the feeling of the mechanism. 
    • If your planning on using your sofa sleeper once or twice a year we recommend just getting a really nice air mattress instead! Much less expensive and it wont affect how your sofa sits!

    5 Ideas For Apartment-Sized Sofas and Sectionals

    As city centers become more and more dense, living spaces have trended more to the smaller side of life, but BuildASofa is here to help! Here are our top 5 Apartment sofa and sectional solutions for maximizing seating!

    Convertible Sectionals

    1. Convertible Sectionals – Convertible sectionals are great for young professionals who are on the move! With the ability to change the sectional layout by simply switching the cushions around, convertible sectionalsgiveyoutheflexibility you need to be sure your furniture will fit in ANY space you move into.
    2. Adding An Ottoman – Don’t have enough room for a sectional but still want the benefits? Think about adding an ottoman to your order! Ottomans can notonly can be used for kicking your feet up after a long day, but with our flip top and storage options they can double as a coffee table and storage spaceConvertible Sectionals for remotes and blankets. Additionally, ottomans make for an additional seating space when you have friends or family over to watch the big game or season finally of Girls J
    3. Track Arm Models – A great way to maximize your seating space in a small apartment or condo is by choosing a model with a narrow track arm. This will give you more seating space than something with a rolled arm while still giving you great design! Check out our MAXWELL, PRESTON or BURTON models for this look!
    4. Small Sectionals – All of our sectionals come in Small, Medium or Large because we know that one shoe doesn’t fit all! Many of our small sectional layouts Convertible Sectionalcan still fit up to 5 people comfortably while not taking up the entire living room.
    5. Add A Sofa Bed – Almost any style from BuildASofa can have a sofa bed added to it for those of us without a second bedroom! We suggest going with softcushions when adding a sofa bedforadded comfort.
