Comfort above all! Buying a sofa is one of the most important investments you’re likely to make for your home. Whether you are planning to have one for your living room, office reception area, or your bedroom, it is a must for you to choose durable sofas that will stand the test of time.
There seem to be infinite options when it comes to choosing a sofa. You might think you know exactly what you want, but once you walk into a shop or browse images online, the styles, shapes, and customization alternatives can become a bit overwhelming.
- Consider size first: If you have a bigger living room, you’ll need to decide exactly how much of the living room space you want your couch to fill. Do you want to include other couches or chairs? Do you want a coffee table? If so, a simple sofa or one with a slight L-shape is probably the best fit. If you’re looking for a sofa that will be the focal point of your living room, look for round shapes that take up a bit more room and provide a lot of seating.
- Determine which shape will suit the room best: An L-shape is great for open areas that need to be divided such as separating the living room from the dining room. A round shape is a bit more conducive for a smaller space meant to serve as a gathering area for groups of people, but could also be perfect for any other occasion.
- Choose a style that complements your home: It can be a little hard to nail down your own personal style but go with your gut instinct when picking the type of couch that will fit naturally in your home. If your style is sleek and modern, pick something that reflects that in clean lines and dramatic colors.
- Make sure it’s comfortable: After spending a long day at the office, it is normal for you to look forward to spending some time relaxing on your comfy couch.
Professional Tip: Always check out the bottom part of your sofa to see if it is made of interconnected coil springs, and test the pillow durability, and seat depth! Get those three elements ticked off and guarantee the perfect sofa!
