When purchasing a sofa it is easy to get confused or frustrated at the sheer range of colours materials and styles not to mention the various levels of quality and pricing. Be careful not to make a decision on impulse or out of frustration. Here are a few tips to make the process simple and ensure that you don`t end up regretting your purchase.
After acknowledging the right size of the sofa you need to have a frame check. The frame of that sofa should be sturdy and strong. The frames are generally made of either wood metal or plastic. If it is made up of wood then ensure that it is made up of solid wood. The sofa should not wobble on the corners. You also need to check how the edges of the frame are held together. They should not be glued but attached with the help of screws and bolts. This will make the joints stronger and more reliable.
For configurations will a simple 2 or 3 seater work in your space or can it take a larger corner or chaise lounge? Do you move house regularly? Chaise lounges are a great solution for many modern apartments but if you move around a lot the chaise is fixed on that side so it may not work in your next home a 3 seater & an ottoman would be a better choice. It`s best to decide before hitting the shops and being swayed by what`s on display. In most cases every sofa design is available in a range of various sizes and configurations to suit your needs.
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.
