Sofa Buying Guide: Choosing the right sofa for you

Your sofa is the focal point of your living, it’s the main furniture piece that welcomes your guests to your home. Your choice of sofa therefore, is one of the biggest furniture buying decisions you will make so it’s important to buy a quality sofa for your living room that not only looks great but also feels great for when you want to entertain or simply sit back and relax.

Things to consider when choosing the right sofa


  Shape and size matters

Sofas come in a variety of shapes and sizes. The shape determines the overall feel of your sofa some are soft and feminine, while others are contemporary and modern. For a large room, consider a sectional or two sofas facing each other or placed at right angles. Size matters, too, so pick a sofa that fits your room and allows room for movement.


To go neutral or bold?

Neutral colors like shades of black, brown, grey and beige are safe choices to ensure your sofa can adapt to seasonal trends in home furnishing. Think of it as a blank canvass that you can build on with smaller accent pieces like pillows, throws or an armchair. Remember, your sofa is quite an investment and you want to get the most use out of it. However, a bold sofa color undeniably makes a statement and may better match your personality


Comfort & Construction

Make sure to try your sofa first before purchasing! Often times we get carried away with the look of a piece that we forgot to try it out but not all sofas are created equal – even within the same store. So make sure to take the time to try multiple pieces out to find out which material and firmness is right for you. SEE HERE FOR OUR GUIDE TO CHOOSING BETWEEN FABRIC OR LEATHER SOFAS -( Also take time to do a little quality check on the sofa. Does it have a good weight to it? Check the arms to see if they are firmly attached to the body, especially if you love to sit on the armrests. Lastly, check the sides and the back to see if it is well cushioned with no nails or screws sticking out that can be harmful to you and your family.
