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.

If you have small children and it is going to be used in a busy area, consider a darker colour for to hide some of the sins and keep your sofa looking pristine for longer. It is generally best to select a neutral colour for your sofa then add colour in the way of cushions, rugs and throws, the sofa will be the biggest piece of furniture in the room and can overwhelm everything else if it is a bold colour or print.
