Buying sofa has lots to concern. Here are some tips when purchasing a sofa:
1. Buying A Sofa That Is Too Big Or Small
This happens when you don’t measure your space, or the sofa, or sometimes neglect both. Don’t go by how big the sofa looks in the store. A sofa might look deceptively small in a showroom, but could end up being too big for your room. Measuring your space or your sofa is very important! Other than measuring the size of your space, pay attention to the scale. Your sofa should be the same scale as your other furniture so it doesn’t seem too big or too small placed alongside the rest of it
2. Try The Sofa First Before You Purchase It
Sit on it, lie on it, try it out the way you would use it at home. If you like napping on your sofa, make sure that the arms are the right height. Make sure the cushions and the back are as soft or firm as you want them to be. If you are tall, make sure that the seat is deep enough to let you sit in comfort. If you are not very tall, or have bad knees, look for a shallow seat that lets you rise out of it easily.
3. Selecting The Right Style And Colour
Style that you are comfortable with, not in just looking at it, but how that style functions for you and also style that merge with your others furniture. As for colours, it is always a good idea to bring a swatch home to look at it in relation to all your other furnishings, wall colour and light. Always choose a colour you like and can live with. Don’t pick colours based on trends or just a whim. You will have to live with that colour choice for years.
4. Do Not Fall In By Buying A Poor Quality Sofa
There’s always budget considerations to be sure, but buying a good quality sofa ensures that you don’t have to replace it within a couple of years. Buying a good quality sofa saves you money in the long run. Buy the best quality you can afford as buying a poor quality sofa means that it will lose its shape, looks and comfort factor pretty quickly, sometimes within a matter of months.
