Choosing a sofa for your home can be difficult. You have to think about the size, the style and even the colour. If you make the wrong decision then this could impact the whole layout of your home, not to mention that it may also look out of place.
Try before you buy
The average depth of a sofa in terms of the seat is around 60cm. This gives you plenty of room to move around if you have longer legs and it also gives you the chance to tuck them under if you have shorter legs. Seat depths can vary however, so you do need to try out a lot of different sofas if you want to find one that suits your needs. Back support should be another consideration as well. Of course, there are no one-size-fits-all options here, so think about the needs that you have rather than the needs of your friends and family.
Spend as much as you possibly can on a good frame. If you have a sofa with a good frame, then this will serve you for many years. Of course, it also helps to look at the warranty you get with the sofa as well. Some manufacturers are so confident about the craftsmanship of their sofas that they are always willing to offer a lifetime guarantee. This can work wonders for your budget, and it can also give you years of use. If you want a quality frame, check out Lebus upholstery.
What’s inside the sofa really is just as important a what is on the outside. Feather cushions are really high in comfort, but they do need you to plump them up on a regular basis. Foam or even fibre cushions can flatten out and they can also lose their shape over time too. If you want to get a good result here then you need to get some back cushions that are filled with feathers, and then cushions that are filled with foam or fibre.
It doesn’t matter whether you opt for a bold colour or something that is a little more neutral because your choice of upholstery furniture will have a huge impact on the room. Choose one that fits in with your needs. Natural materials can fade over time, and this is especially the case if you have a lot of strong sunlight in a room. Opt for synthetic fabric if you know that the sofa in question is going to be near to a window. It also helps to make sure that the fabric is washable as well because when you do this, you can save yourself a small fortune in dry cleaning costs.
Measure Everything Up
Get out a tape measure and make sure that you are really happy with the maximum sofa dimensions. You have to make sure that it fits in with the room and it also helps to check how far it is going to come out as well, so do keep that in mind.
