How To Choose The Right Sofa For Your Home

When you are planning an attractive living room, you will want to pay special attention to the choice of the right sofa. Your sofa will be used by guests, and should be comfortable. It is also the centerpiece of the living room, and needs to be attractive. It pays to take a little more time here and choose the right one.

Sofas can be made in many different materials. Traditionally sofas have come in fabric or leather. You are no longer limited to this pair of materials, however. Recently, microfiber has become a very popular option for sofa upholstery.

Microfiber is a durable, lightweight synthetic fabric. It feels soft and warm to the touch, and has a beautiful finish. Its comfort, beauty, and durability make it a great choice for use on furniture that will be used frequently. In fact, some people prefer it to leather for warmth and comfort.

Keep in mind a few things before you embark on a sofa shopping spree. If you remember these, you’ll be more likely to come home with a sofa you will enjoy for years.

When you pick out a sofa, make sure it fits the room it will be in. If you choose a sofa that is too large for a room, you’ll make the room feel small and cramped. On the other hand, if you have a big room and you pick a delicate sofa, your room will feel empty and will overwhelm the sofa. You also need to remember that you have doors and windows – don’t buy a piece that obscures either.

This can be avoided easily enough if you do some simple planning ahead. Check the dimensions of your room before you make your purchase decision. Figure out exactly where you will want to place the sofa. Measure so that the sofa will not block any doors. If there will be other furniture in the room, you can even place ‘dummy’ furniture in the planned position to get an idea. If you have empty suitcases they can be used for this. Placing the dummy furniture will help you get a feel for the dimensions of the room, and have a better idea on how to place the sofa itself.

Another thing to consider is how large a sofa you need for ideal usage. Most often, a 3-seater sofa is ideal. This allows comfort and space. A two-seater sofa is a bit small. It is best for a single person, rather than a family, because it can get pretty cramped with more than one person sitting on it.

Choose your upholstery with the feel of your sofa in mind. You want an attractive color or pattern of course, but the feel is also important. This will depend heavily on whether you choose a fabric, leather, or microfiber sofa. To best gauge which you like best, you should try each type and see how it feels to you.
