7 Tips For Choosing the Perfect Sofa

Guide on How to Buy a Sofa or Sectional

Sofas are the centerpiece of a home’s living space. When you're shopping for a new sofa, it can be pretty overwhelming. There are so many styles, colors, and materials to choose from—and then you have to decide whether you want a couch or a sectional! And when you finally make up your mind about what kind of sofa or sectional you want, you still have to figure out how big it should be and how much it will cost.

But don't worry—we're here to help! Here are some things to keep in mind as you shop for your new couch:

1) Comfort is key. 

You want a sofa that's going to be comfortable enough for everyone in your family—and if you have kids (or dogs!), that means picking something durable enough for them not to ruin it too quickly.

2) Seat height and depth

Seat height and depth matter too. If you're tall or short (or both), then your chosen piece should reflect that fact! Make sure to pay attention to the dimensions you see online to get a sense of how comfortably you’d sit on it.

3) Color

Selecting a color can be overwhelming! Don’t go crazy with bright colors unless they're already part of your home's decor scheme, or if you want to have a central accent piece. If something bright would clash, then stick with neutral tones until they can become part of the overall look of your living space.

4) Material matters

Material matters too—there’s leather, linen, velvet and more! It’s important to keep in mind what textures you like best and are able to upkeep.

5) Kid and Pet Friendly Fabrics

Kid friendly concerns–Do you have children who might spill drinks on or scratch up the couch over time? If so, then make sure that whatever style of sofa or sectional you choose will stand up well to those kinds of wear and tear. We offer plenty of performance fabrics that are both kid and pet friendly

6) Design Choice

Picking a design–there are so many options for style nowadays, it can be overwhelming! Think about the style of your space, is it more modern, traditional, whimsical? Identifying your own personal style can guide you towards what sofa is right for you.

7) Measurements

Always measure your space and doorways! It’s such a shame when you order a couch online, and it’s unable to fit into your room of choice. It’s imperative to measure the height and width of hallways and door frames to make sure that a couch could comfortably go through them.
