Make the Right Choice: Top Tips for Buying a Sofa

June 25, 2013

Choosing a sofa isn’t an easy choice – unless you’re not fussed about how your living room furniture complements eachother, you can’t just pick the first one you see. There are a lot of considerations that need to factor when making your decision – colour, size, shape and the chances of it fitting through your doorway are just some of the things you need to think about. Whether you’re hoping to invest in one of the high quality fabric sofas available, or you’d prefer to go for a leather chesterfield, you need to seriously weigh up your options to make sure that the couch you spend your hard earned cash on is worth every penny.

Size

The size of the sofa you buy will depend largely on the size of the room you are going to be putting it into. If you have a small living room, a large corner sofa may be overbearing, while a small, cute sofa would look lost in a large room. Make sure you arm yourself with a tape measure and imagine where your dream sofa will be going. Does it fit? Will it fit through your doorways?

Shape

Opt for something timeless – there’s no point investing a considerable amount of money if you’re going to change your mind about it in a couple of years’ time, because it isn’t trendy anymore. Classic designs from Sofas and Stuff UK  that will never go out of fashion, offer longevity and a great investment.

Colours & Fabrics

This depends largely on what sort of room you have and who will be using the sofas. Light fabrics would look beautiful in a minimalist room but not the most sensible of choices if you have pets and kids climbing all over them. Make sure the sofa you choose suits the needs of your family as well as your personal style.

Cushions

If you purchase a timeless, classic sofa, you can always jazz it up a bit with some funky cushions. Make a statement in your lounge with bold and bright cushions against a simple fabric sofa.

Of course, the main issue is to ensure your new sofa offers absolute cosiness. There’s nothing better than slouching on a couch after a hard day’s work, and the more comfortable, the better.
