The most important factor to take into consideration is the size of the sofa and the space you have available for it in your living room or the area where it would be standing, especially the width and the depth. Start by measuring the room and remember to also measure the doorframes and staircases your sofa should fit through when you bring your sofa home.
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.
But there are those people too, who need some strong reasons to overcome their temptations towards the very formal leather sofas and take a leap of faith to choose an upholstered one, which can enliven their living room. Therefore, take a read of the following top reasons to buy a fabric sofa right today:
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.
Cotton Fabric: Although cotton fabric can be the best choice if you are not planning to make the heavy daily use of the fabric sofa, it can be prone to wearing and tearing like none other. Cotton has a breathing quality which makes it even more comfortable and the beautiful designs and patterns can make the room more alluring on the whole. Placing the pure cotton fabricated sofa in the highly trafficked room is a big no-no because it can accumulate dirt and dust, eventually causing dark stains. There is no denying the fact that the cotton material upholstery looks the most adorable, but it will be sagacious if we keep it in a room which is visited the least frequently.
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.
