When you buy a sofa you expect it to last a number of years. In order for this to happen you must make sure you are purchasing a good quality product. This will also save you money in the long run as you won`t need to replace parts or the whole sofa. Don`t be afraid to ask questions about a sofa`s quality when shopping. Make sure every part of it (internal and external) has a warranty and that there are no shortcuts such as real leather on the seats but artificial leather on the back of the sofa. If they are taking shortcuts on the outside you don`t know what shortcuts they`ve taken on the inside.
Covers for your sofa would be recommended if your sofa is a light color you have kids or if you occasionally have dinner on your sofa. Having a spare cover could save you money and humiliation rather than having to replace your sofa after a while. Covers are not that expensive and could be handy if you change the color scheme of the room and just need to get a new matching sofa cover instead of buying an entire new sofa.
One main decision is whether you are going to go for a leather or a fabric sofa. A few questions to ask yourself are: how much use will this sofa get? What kind of area is it in and therefore what kind of spills is it going to be prone to? If it is a high-use area leather is durable easy to clean and non- absorbent for spills and smells. With professional help minor tears or scratches can be repaired with great results. Fabric on the other hand takes a bit more maintenance.
A sofa with chunkier or heavier overall proportions will appear larger in the room whilst a sofa that is raised from the floor and has slim arms and seat proportions will appear lighter and visually consume less space. Use this to your advantage look for heavier styles if you are looking to fill a large room and vice versa and be aware of the impact the showroom has on the look of the sofa in general showrooms will be very open and have high ceilings making all sofas look smaller than they are.
