sofa buying guide

When it comes to buying furniture, the most important factor is comfort. Even if your sofa is lovely and well-made, if it isn't comfy, you will rarely use it or even like sitting on it. You must ensure that the sofa you select can support your body weight, has enough cushioning to allow you to sit comfortably, and matches your decor style so that it does not look odd. Here are some tips on how to choose the right sofa for your home.


Budget and Size Considerations

How much money are you ready to spend on a sofa? How large is your living room? Keep in mind that couches can be purchased individually or in sets. If you’re planning on buying two or more, it’s often a good idea to choose from a matching set so that your decor doesn’t appear disjointed. However, purchasing individual pieces of furniture allows you more flexibility and adds variety to your home decorating scheme.


Material Used

You’re going to want a material that is easy to clean and will stay in place, especially if you have pets or kids running around. Sofas are heavy so you’ll probably be doing some moving from time to time anyway. The easiest material is leather or microfiber as both have a bit of flexibility and can withstand most spills.

When choosing a sofa, first consider your home’s interior design. If you have a minimalist style, choose something simple and clean-lined. On the other hand, if you prefer a more eclectic look, you can go with something unique and funky. Also, if your home has an open concept or is filled with lots of natural light, have steered clear of darker colors so that your space doesn’t feel too cluttered or cramped.


Seating Capacity

Determining how many people can fit on your sofa should be your major consideration. A traditional sofa will comfortably seat 3-4 people but can feel cramped with 5 or more. If you’re hosting a small party of friends, it’s better to buy two smaller sofas rather than one large one. It is always better to take proper measurements of your room before heading out to buy an oversized sofa if you have doubts about its seating capacity.


Other Factors


Everyone has a different home and lifestyle, so it can be difficult to choose a sofa that’s going to fit all your needs. There are some other things you need to consider when choosing your new sofa. Here are three other factors that will influence your decision - 

  • How many people live in your house?
  • How much room there is in each room of your house?
  • What style of furniture do you already have in each room?


Once you know these details about your home, it will be easier to narrow down which sofa is right for you.
