Do you go fabric or leather? Choosing which sofa to buy is a confusing part of the home decor shopping experience. To answer the question shortly, both are great options. However, there are a few factors to consider before you start looking:

1. Comfort
One essential factor to consider is comfort. Which do you find to feel more cozy? Also, the climate you live in can affect that level of comfort. Nothing feels more uncomfortable than slipping into a leather couch or arm chair when the temperatures get chilly. On the other hand, if you live in a warm climate you might realize that a leather couch will feel more suitable.

2. Care

Fabric can wear and tear, but so can leather (believe it or not). So deciding which option to choose also depends on whether or not you have kids or entertain often. Spills do happen, so learn how each material should be cleaned and which you find more convenient for your lifestyle.

3. Color & Pattern
Leather can come in several color varieties, but fabric colors are practically unlimited. What’s your preference? If color and pattern is of the utmost importance to you, you might decide that fabric furniture is for you. However, if you’re indifferent about color but love earth tones, you may want to opt for leather. 

4. Health Benefits
Do you suffer from allergies? Consider the benefits of a leather couch and the drawbacks of fabric when it comes to dirt, dust, and pet dander. Allergy sufferers often do well with leather sofas, as they tend to collect less dust.
