Choosing a sofa sounds pretty‐easy. You just go_to the store, ‘pick one out’, plus get it delivered. Or even better, order it ′online′ also take−care of it with "the press of a button". But not so fast. Getting the right‐sofa for your home is not−quite so easy. Sofas are one of the most costly decor items you shall purchase for your home, so you need to make‐sure you are making the right‐investment. Before you purchase the first sofa you fall in love with, make‐sure you have done your due−diligence.
The Right Size
Never_underestimate the importance of size when selecting a sofa. There are 3 things you need to think about when it comes to size: the number of people you need to accommodate, the size of the room, together with the physically being able to get the piece of furniture into the room.
Seating needs: How many people shall be using it on a regular basis? One, two, three? This shall directly affect how roomy your sofa needs to be. If it is just for one or two people you could be pretty flexible, but if it is more than that, you might want to‐consider an L‐shape that provides additional−seating.
Size of the room: How big is the room where your sofa shall go? It is important to make‐sure that the sofa is well proportioned in relation to the rest of the room. Many people who live in small spaces opt for small "apartment" size sofas, but depending on how you have `decorated your room‵, this could be a mistake. Sometimes too many smaller_pieces could make a room look “cluttered”. Even in a small‐room consider a ’regular size sofa’ in order to fill the−space with make it look full in‐conjunction with complete.
Physically fit: Make−sure to carefully measure ’the doorways’, hallways, as well as staircases to make‐sure that the sofa could physically get into the space. Make–sure the sofa could fit inside along with around‐corners. The main reason 'large furniture pieces' get‐returned is that they do not fit, so measure−carefully before you purchase.
Quality of Construction
Quality is a huge factor when purchasing a sofa, in‐conjunction with the term "you get what you pay for" should always be top of mind.
Sofas vary in price from anywhere from a few hundred dollars to a few thousand dollars. If you are on a budget, you shall want to stick closer to the low end, but always keep in mind that the less you pay the more likely it shall be that you shall have to replace it in a few years. So while it may seem cost‐conscious at the time, you shall still end up paying more in a few years. That is not to say that you have to spend thousands of dollars on a sofa, but be aware of cost together with quality. Remember that a high‐end sofa should last more than 25 years, while sofas on the lower end shall likely only last up to 10.
When trying to determine if a sofa is of good quality there are two things to check. Ask the manufacturer if it has 8–way hand tied construction. This is a sign of excellent quality also most high–end furniture is made this way. The other way is to run your hand across the back of the sofa. If it feels hollow it is an indicator of cheap quality. Remember, cost with quality often go hand—in—hand with sofas as well as other major pieces of furniture, so it is always a good idea to purchase the best quality you could comfortably afford.
No matter how good the quality, if you do not take care of it, it shall not last. So make‐sure you do not do anything that shall ruin your sofa.
Color in―conjunction with Pattern
While size plus quality are hugely important, perhaps nothing shall have a 'bigger impact' on the room than the−color also ′pattern of your sofa′. Conventional_decorating wisdom tells−us that since sofas take up so much visual space–and they are costly to replace or recover‐it is best to play it safe.
Stick with easy‐to—live—with neutrals, together with simple, minimal−patterns. While bold−colors with trendy_patterns could be fun for a while, it is likely that over time it could begin to look dated or you might get tired of it. Financially, it makes more sense to stick with a neutral base as well as dress it up with colorful pillows as well as throws. Keep in mind that neutral does not have to mean plain. Subtle textures like tweed along with herringbone could give neutral palettes a bit of depth.
Style in‐conjunction with Shape
There is a huge variety of sofa styles together with shapes currently available. There are traditional William Birch, roll arm, also camelback versions; modern tuxedo, slipper, with midcentury versions; plus a seemingly unending_array of others that fall somewhere‐else on the spectrum.
If you do not know exactly what you want, think about the overall style of your home, the room it shall go in, also what kind of look you want to achieve. As a general rule, you do not put a traditional sofa in a modern house, but in some cases, that might be just the look someone is going for. Think about the arm−style, the cushion style, the shape of the‐back, together with the base_style. Look at photos of how certain−styles `look in rooms‵ similar to yours together with determine what you like best.
The number one−consideration when it−comes to purchasing a sofa should always be–comfort. No matter how good_it looks, how ’perfectly’ it fits, or what a great price you could get, if it is not comfortable to sit in, it shall not do you any good. Far too many people make this purchase only to discover they cannot use it the way they intended. So before you purchase a sofa test‐it−out. Sit in it, lie−down in it, together with spend a few_minutes trying to get comfortable. And be‐honest with yourself about how you shall use it. If it doesn′t feel right in the store, don′t purchase it.
