Real vs Faux Leather Sofas


Deciding which fabric to use for your sofa? 

Fair for You now has a range of sofas in the Good Payers Club, which customers are invited into after 6 months of good payments.

There are great benefits to Faux & Real Leather sofas, so we’ve created this list to help you understand the pros and cons of each and to help you make a decision.

Real Leather

Pros

  • Smell & feels good
  • Will last and arguable looks more distinguished with age
  • Breathable, lets air pass through it

 

Cons

  • Expensive – it comes from an animal which means some parts of the hide isn’t suitable, which leads to a lot of waste & therefore expensive material.
  • It comes from an animal so isn’t considered environmentally friendly
  • High maintenance – needs regular waxing to keep its gloss
  • Leather tends to stretch with use, so expect wrinkles & fading

 

Faux Leather

 

Pros

  • More affordable
  • More environmentally friendly – no animals harmed
  • Very low maintenance with no regular care needed – wipe clean and waterproof options available, perfect for big families with small children.
  • More durable and long lasting, it won’t crack or fade like real leather.
  • It’s a man-made material, so you can get the colour and look you want.

 

Cons

  • It isn’t leather
  • Material is not breathable
  • Can get punctured more easily

 

Ultimately you’ll want the sofa which will last, so consider the amount of people that will be using the sofa and your lifestyle before choosing between Leather or Faux Sofas.

With Fair for You you can choose from a great range of Sofas on Finance at prices, sizes and styles that suit all families. Our suppliers offer a range of top quality sofas which you can pay for in flexible weekly, fortnightly or monthly instalments.

Which Tumble Dryer Should I Get? Vented VS Condenser Tumble Dryers On Finance


 

Our suppliers do a range of tumble dryers that you can get on finance, but which tumble dryer is right for you? With such a range to choose from it can be pretty daunting trying to find the right one for your home, so here’s a quick, handy guide on which tumble dryer to consider. tumble dryers

Vented Tumble Dryers

Pros: All the warm damp air from drying wet clothes goes outside, so you don’t have any humidity building up in the house. These tend to be the cheaper option to buy.

Cons: You’ll need the space for the hose to be connected to a wall or window vent leading to the outside.

 

Condenser Dryers 

Pros: If you don’t have room for the hose to go outside, Condenser Dryers are best. They have water tanks installed that collect all the excess warm damp air from drying clothes. This means Condenser Dryers can be installed anywhere in the house.

Cons: The water tank needs to be emptied when full. They are more expensive and have an average energy rating of B.

Features of Tumble Dryers

Lint Filters are found inside the door and catch all the bits of fluff from clothes, so it’s important to clean the filter after every cycle.

The Drum Size you need depends on the size of the family. In general 1kg = 5 shirts, so depending on your own families washing needs you should consider the amount of laundry you need to dry to determine the drum capacity needed. 7kg is considered about average.

Mechanical Timers can be found on cheaper dryers, and lets you choose the fabric type to set the drying time.

5 Extra Benefits When You Pay A Little Extra on Your Loan


Pay a little extra and get a little extra on your Fair for You loan:


  • Get Another Item from Fair for You in Time for Christmaspayment-holidays

Once a third of the current loan has been repaid you are eligible for another one in time for Christmas!!

If you can get your application submitted the week before you’ll get your kitchen item in time for the holiday.

 

 

  • Have a Payment Holiday 

Money is tight around winter, so if you over pay a little bit now you can skip a payment later on without it affecting your account with us at all – but only if you are already overpaid on the loan, so it’s worth paying a little bit extra every week to give yourself that option if you ever need it.

 

 

  • The Faster You Pay the Less You Pay

Check out our Loan Calculator to see approximately how much interest you pay overall.

 

 

  • Get TVs, Laptops, Corner Sofas, PS4’s and MORE in the Good Payers Clubgood-payers-club-shop-window

If you’re lucky enough to also be in the Good Payers Club in time for Christmas you have a whole range of items to choose from! You will be invited into the Good Payers Club when:

You’ve never missed a payment

AND

You’ve paid off your first loan and you’ve been us for at least 4 months

OR

You’re up to date with loan repayments and have been with 6 months

  • Rebuild your Credit Rating

So far we have already helped these customers improve their credit rating. Why not apply today and join them?

Karen from Scotland said:

“I could not get credit due to past bad credit history and I felt trapped. I am so happy with the service and can honestly say it’s bettered my life – I feel more in control.

Chevaun from Bolton said:  

I’ve had a very bad credit rating and with my weekly low payments to Fair for You and never missing a payment has helped my credit score a great deal.

I think that you should promote Fair for You a little more so more people find out about you and can benefit from it.

I’m so happy that I discovered Fair for You.”

 

(Note: There is no guarantee that following these steps will increase your credit rating, but doing so should help you to build a strong credit history. Not making payments on time could affect your credit history negatively and stop you from obtaining further credit in the future.)
