A sofa is an item that will be present in your home for many years to come so you’ll want to make sure you’re buying the right style for you. Take a look at our tips for finding your perfect sofa…
First of all you need to decide whether you want a leather or fabric sofa.
Leather sofas are attractive and stylish, but may be prone to rip from heavy wear and tear. There’s also the issue of bare skin ‘sticking’ to the leather – though it is much easier to clean and maintain than fabric.
Fabric sofas are soft and comfortable but can be a magnet for dust and fur if you have any pets. Fabric sofas can include scatter back cushions or attached cushions so take a look at a few of each to decide which you prefer.
Choose a Leather or Fabric Settee
What arm style do you like?
It can be easy to overlook this factor but it’s essential for the comfort of your sofa. Check the arm height and whether it would be comfortable for taking a nap or relaxing, and decide whether you want a solid straight arm, traditional curved style or even no arm at all.
Do you want visible legs?
Sofas with visible legs offer a modern and contemporary look while providing some storage space too, while full settees look more traditional and can include recliners.
How big does your sofa need to be?
How many people does it need to seat on a daily basis – and how many people do you want to cater for? Corner settees or sofa suites are the better option for larger rooms and greater numbers of people. Double and triple check the size requirements for your fabric or leather sofa. When you have your measurements it’s better to slightly underestimate to avoid bringing home a sofa that’s too big.
Consider colour and style options
While a funky style might look good in your home now, will you still feel the same way about your sofa in 5 years or so? Think about the colour scheme and style of your home – is it sleek and modern or cosy and traditional? A contemporary leather sofa would suit the former while a squishy fabric settee would suit the latter.
