How to buy a sofa?

Buying a sofa is one of the most important investments you’re likely to make for your home. In the living room it’s a piece of furniture where we lounge, read, eat and drink, entertain family and friends, watch TV and, even sleep, so it makes sense that we take the time to invest in one that’s going to last for years to come, right?

Choosing a sofa can feel a bit overwhelming. So, sit down and relax, because we’ve got some practical tips to help you.

  1. Size

The size of the sofa is the most important decision you need to make first depending on your space. Big spaces will look great with big cushions, bold colors, classic designs that makes the room cozy and homey.

2. Activity

Choose a sofa that fits your lifestyle. How will you use it? Lot of naps? Choose a wide, long seat. TV dinners aplenty? Make sure there’s room for a table. Round-the-clock room? Then a sofa-bed can be a wise choice.

3. Style

Go with a style that complements your home’s decor and furniture. A modern look works well with sleek, simple-line sofas, while classic-style sofas add a traditional feel. Not sure what you like?

4. Function

Consider the functions you want in a sofa. A sofa that doubles as a comfy bed – choose a sofa-beds or futon. Are you looking for extra storage? Some of our sofas have hidden storage, perfect for smaller spaces.

5. Comfort

How do you like to sit? If you like a relaxed position, go for a low, deep seat. A higher, narrower seat favors an upright position. A high backrest supports your neck and shoulders. Since firmness varies with materials in cushions and frame, see different ones out and see what suits you.

6. Covers
