There’s a lot more to think about when it comes to buying a sofa than what you might imagine. From materials to the filling, the arms to price, there’s many considerations to make. First and foremost, before you start getting into the finer details of sofa design, fabrics and comfort, it’s important that the sofa will actually fit in the intended space. Also keep in mind whether it will fit through the front door, corridors or into a lift if you live in an apartment. So many people make the mistake of buying a sofa they love but failing to make sure that it fits the space and end up with an oversized sofa that takes up too much space or one that’s too small and it looks lost in the room. Once the measuring is done and you know roughly what dimensions you have to work with, you can then start to explore the different types of sofa including styles, materials and comfort levels.
Choosing the right type of sofa is important, there are lots of different varieties that you can choose from including two and three seaters, modular sofas, ones that fit into a corner or even sofa beds that serve a dual purpose and double up as a bed. The type that you choose will depend on the size of your room and what other furniture the sofa has to blend in with. The style of your sofa shouldn’t look out of place with your existing furniture. If you have old style furniture then a contemporary design for your sofa probably won’t be a good fit, so make sure that they both work well together.
As well as the comfort you’ve also got to think about the design of the arms, the material such as leather or upholstery and how easy or difficult the sofa will be to clean and maintain. Read More
There are two things that you need to measure when it comes to buying a new sofa. First is the entrance to your home and second is the actual space where the sofa will be placed.
Step 1 Measure the Entrance Door (Or Lift)
The first step is to make sure that there is enough space at the front of your home to navigate the sofa safely to your living room. Or, if you live in an apartment, make sure that you measure the front door and also the lift to make sure that your sofa will fit. Narrow doorways, tight corridors, porches or unusual layouts can cause problems, so make sure that the sofa will fit through all the doors from your front door to your living room.
Step 2 Measure Corridors, Passages and Porches
Don’t forget to factor in fitted cupboards, radiators or other obstructions which can make a space seem much smaller, particularly if you are trying to navigate through with a sofa.
Step 3 Sofa Dimensions
Next, make sure that the sofa will be the right dimensions for your living room. Typically, there will be three sofa dimensions that you need to look out for, the width (W), the height (H) and the depth (D). Check that it’s not going to be too big, but also make sure that it won’t be too small either. Write down the dimensions and use newspaper or masking tape to mark out the dimensions so you can see how much space it will take up in the room. Read More
The right care and maintenance routines for your sofa can really make all the difference. Whether you have a fabric or leather sofa, make sure that you never use harsh chemicals or solutions such as bleach, waxes or polish as this can cause the material to deteriorate.
Sofas should be cleaned weekly with a clean cloth to remove excess dust and vacuumed regularly.
Avoid placing your sofas in direct sunlight as this can cause the fabric or the leather to discolour or fade. Exposure to direct sunlight can cause leather to crack.
Avoid sharp objects to prevent tears and make sure to remove any spills or spots immediately with a clean dry, absorbent cloth and follow the manufacturers care instructions.
