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.
You may come across the `perfect` sofa - the one you`ve been searching for - but if it is not comfortable, you will wish you went for something cozier. Although it may look great, is it deep enough if you`re tall or too deep so your feet can`t touch the floor? Is it too firm or so soft that you have trouble getting up? If you like to lie down on your sofa, are the arms at a comfortable height? Think about your requirements for the sofa prior to purchasing, if it is for use in the television room buy something that is comfortable for the family, and think about durability if people are going to have their feet on the sofa or it is high use, for a formal living room the look of the sofa will have greater importance, select something that is comfortable to sit on, but it does not necessarily need to be comfortable to lie down on.
It is crucial that you measure your space and work out the ideal size that your sofa needs to be. Think about how many people you need to seat regularly and where the best placement in the room would be (keeping in mind doorways and other furniture pieces). It`s a great idea to measure your current sofa to get an idea or alternatively, measure out on the ground with masking tape or newspaper different sizes. This will help you visualise the item in the room and how you move around it. Secondly, even though it may fit within your required space the overall proportion will impact the look within the room.
