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.
Be sure to find a color that fits and compliments your room. Sofas come in a great variety of colors and patterns and you should choose very wisely. You will most probably not find a perfect match for the material of your other furniture, but they should coordinate and look good together. When choosing a color for you sofa, think practical. Your new couch could look disastrous after a few months if you chose a white sofa and your little one wipes his chocolate fingers on it or your puppy jumps on it with muddy paws. Black or very dark colors are not recommended if you have animals living on the couch and leaving their hair behind. So, think about who and what the sofa will be used for before choosing a color.
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.
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.
Bear in mind that the blanket wrap will add an inch or two to the dimensions of your sofa and this can make a big difference. Sometimes it is better to just move the sofa out as is and then wrap it in the moving truck. Most of the time experienced movers can maneuver the sofa-bed out by skillfully rotating it around the corners and carrying it through doorways just at the right angle. But that is not always the case and forcing the sofa through a tight spot is the recipe for moving damage, which can be done to the sofa itself or to the walls and doors of your home.
