5 Tips To Choosing The Best Sofa For Your Home
Like everything else in this era of endless choice, 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 overwhelming. Save yourself the time, money, and potential buyer’s remorse and use these tips to get a clear idea of what you want (and what you need!) before you start the hunt.
1. Consider Size First.
If you have a bigger living room, you’ll need to decide exactly how much of the living room 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 rounder couch shapes that take up a bit more room and provide a lot of seating.
2. Try It Out.
You know when you’re on the hunt for a new mattress, and you do the age-old bottom test? Well, the same theory applies to a sofa. The average sofa has a seat depth of at least 60 cm, which gives plenty of room to manoeuvre if you have long legs, and allows you to tuck them under if you’re shorter. But seat depths do vary, so definitely try out different styles to ensure you get good back support
3. Your Choice Of Fabric.
Whether you go for a bold colour, pattern or a neutral, your choice of fabric will have a huge impact on the room, so choose carefully to ensure it fits with your scheme. Natural materials may fade in strong sunlight so go for a synthetic fabric if the sofa will be near a window. It’s particularly important in a busy family home, and if you have a dog or cat, opt for a fabric that’s easy to spot clean. In this case, loose covers are worth investigating, as they can be removed for cleaning and some are washable too.
4. Determine Which Shape Will Suit Your Room Best.
Now that you’ve decided your sofa’s function, it’s time to figure out which shape will help it fulfil that purpose. A clean L-shape is great for open areas that need to be divided — such as separating the living room from the dining room.
5. Finally, 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 colours.
