Cream leather sofas are an excellent addition to any home providing a fresh and clean look that is perfectly suited to interiors where a darker coloured leather suite may be overpowering or where light is limited. There are many shades of cream to consider, ranging from an off white all the way through to a rich buttermilk. Choosing the correct shade is important when trying to match your new leather sofas with existing furniture, it may also be wise to avoid really light cream or ivory leather sofas if the sofas are intended for heavy use as lighter coloured sofas will show marks and wear and tear more easily as opposed to a darker model. Acquiring a swatch sample for your cream leather sofas is a great way to see if the sofas are a good match for your living space as well as giving a good indication of quality especially when buying your new cream settees online.
How to clean cream leather sofas
Cream leather sofas will require a more frequent approach to cleaning and care. As with all leathers, when using a cleaning product for the first time, this should be tested on a small inconspicuous area before applying to the whole of the sofa. Outlets with cream leather sofas for sale will in most cases also offer cleaning products as an ‘add-on’ at the point of sale specific to the leather suite you intend to purchase, salespersons will also be able to advise the most effective and safest methods for cleaning and care so as not to damage your new cream leather sofas.
As a general rule cream leather sofas should be given an all over clean once every month and any marks and stains should be dealt with as soon as possible. Using a moisturising solution or cream after cleaning your sofa is also advised. The natural moisture held in leather suites can dry out over time especially when kept in a centrally heated environment. By moisturising your sofas regularly natural oils and moisture can be maintained which will keep the leather on your cream leather suite soft and supple and keeping its new look for longer.
What to match cream settees with?
If your living room is a little on the small side, cream leather sofas can instantly make your room look less cluttered and airy, especially when complimented with a light finish to your walls and accessories to match. Contrasting cushions are an obvious choice to go with your new cream sofas adding a touch of interest and practicality.
Cream is a neutral colour that will fit well in most interiors and for this fact it can be classed as a safe bet in terms of colour. If you are prepared to put the time and effort in to clean and care for your new suite, buying a cream leather sofa is an investment that can pay off in the long run.
