Finding the right sofa

A sofa is a big-ticket item in terms of both cost and space, and knowing what to consider before making such a large purchase is vital. Here are a few things to keep in mind before deciding on a sofa for your home… 

Make sure the sofa’s length and depth allow you to both lie down and sit comfortably.

1. Space

Take measurements of the space you wish to allot for the sofa. Measure the height, width and depth of the area in your living room where the sofa will be placed. You want to make sure the piece you buy fits. 

2. Material

Pick a sofa upholstered in fabric that is both easy to clean and suitable to your environment. For example, leather sofas can get hot and uncomfortable in warmer weather and suede upholstery, while pleasant to the touch, can be difficult to clean. Microfiber and acrylic fabrics are popular choices for both comfort and ease of cleaning. 

3. Comfort

Make sure the sofa’s length and depth allow you to both lie down and sit comfortably. 

4. Appropriateness

Does the sofa’s size and design match the room where it will be placed? A large sectional is great for seating lots of people in an entertainment area while a three-seater sofa may be better in a small living room. As it may be the biggest piece of furniture in the room, it’s also important that it fits the area’s style and decoration.
