Having a large faux leather ottoman at home or in the office is a pride in itself, whenever I have guests, they all start looking at my large faux leather ottoman and they always ask me questions of this kind:
Where did you buy it, how much did it cost, and most importantly, how do you keep it looking amazing?
And this is what I’m going to talk about in this post, how to choose and also maintain a large faux leather ottoman in perfect condition.
Let’s talk now about the first important thing: how to choose your large faux leather ottoman?
Well, there are so many things you need to take into consideration when choosing such a very important piece of furniture, the first and most important one is the price!
Stop thinking of faux leather as being cheap and affordable! Yes, it’s a little affordable than real leather, but it’s also a very resistant and highly flexible material, meaning that it will cost you a little, and if you decide to buy very cheap large faux leather ottomans, then, you are making a terrible mistake!
I’ve seen people buying faux leather ottomans for as low as forty dollars!
Unfortunately, they were surprised, after some few months of use, to find that they started peeling and even looking horrible! And no matter what they did, the quality kept deteriorating and soon, they were left with a piece of trash!
I don’t advise you to do the same, when you are trying to buy a large faux leather ottoman, always choose known name brands, and most importantly, don’t be cheap, don’t try to buy something which you are going to throw after just some few months of use!
Then, always choose the best quality faux leather.
However, how do you know that a faux leather fabric is of high quality?
Well, you need to look at these very important criteria: the thickness, and the cotton backing.
In other words, if the faux leather fabric is very thin and lightweight, it may be a low-quality one and it will not be very resistant, and one more thing, if it doesn’t have cotton backing, in other words, fibers backing the faux leather fabrics whether inside or outside, then you should stay away from it as well.
These are the most important things to care for when you are choosing a large faux leather ottoman.
Let’s talk now about how to keep it in perfect condition.
It’s quite easy, you just need to use baby oil or a good faux leather conditioner from time to time, preferably every six months, and if your faux leather ottoman is exposed to sunlight and humidity, try to use these ingredients once every three months, they will keep it looking new all the time.
