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.
You can change its configuration with time to give your living room an entirely new ambiance. These corner sofas are also known as L-Shaped, U- Shaped and sectional sofa sets. But, some of the corner sofas do not consist of segments so, moving and rearranging becomes difficult. Nevertheless, they can still manage to utilize the space of the room efficiently by optimizing the unused corners. The sectional sofas that do not comprise of segments are also known as a right-handed or left-handed sofa. The name will depend on the side of the sofa that tends to be longer.
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.
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.
The style of your sofa should complement the style of your house and your existing furniture. It should also function in a way that suits your lifestyle and functions for you. Buying a low-line, sleek sofa that looks great in the showroom amongst contemporary furniture is great if you have a modern home. But if you really prefer a comfy, cushioned seat that you can sink into, keep looking for the one that will suit you and your home.
You can not buy a comfortable fabric sofa until and unless you know the ABC about the various upholstery or designs that are available in the market. You have to be a savvy shopper who knows all that he wants and has a brief of his requirements and space options so that you do not end up using the sofa as an exercise in frustration.
