A sofa is something you’re going to have in your house for a long time; a place where you’re going to sit and relax, watch TV, cuddle up with your partner, read a good book and even have a snooze from time to time. But how do you know if the sofa you’re buying is going to not only last you, but will be one of the most comfortable sofas you need and deserve, at the end of a long day?
What should I look for in the most comfortable sofa?
There are a few things to look for when buying a comfortable couch that’ll ensure maximum comfort for you and your family.
The style of sofa you want to go for depends on the look you are trying to bring to your room. If your house is modern, you might want to opt for a more modern looking sofa to match or you might want to go for a traditional sofa to add a little style. You should be looking at the arm style, the cushion style and the shape of the back when deciding what is going to work in your house. If you’re not sure, then you can look for photos to see how other people style their rooms and the look you’d like to replicate.
Not only do you want your fabric to be super soft to touch, you’ll need it to be something practical. If you’ve got lots of kids or family members coming and going, a fabric that is easily washable is going to be best for you. If you’ve got pets, this is something you should also consider.
The color of your fabric is also important as you’ll want your sofa to fit in with the rest of your existing furniture and your decor. Neutral colors are sometimes better to go for, as over time bright colors and patterns can look dated or you can become sick of looking at them! It’s better to stick with a more neutral color and brighten the sofa with colorful pillows and throws that can be changed when needed.
The size of the space your sofa needs to fit in is an important factor to consider. If you live in a small apartment you may want a smaller sofa. Sometimes, smaller pieces of furniture can actually make a small space look more cluttered, so a full-size sofa might make the room look complete.
You should also take into consideration the amount of people will be using the sofa on a regular basis. If it’s just you and your partner, a two-seater may be enough. But if you need lots of space for all the family, a sectional sofa can give you more seating.
Instead of measuring just the room you plan on putting the sofa in, you should measure any doorways that the sofa will need to get through before that room. Some sofas come readily assembled and so you will need to be able to fit them into your house whole. If this is an issue, you can look for sofas that come partly assembled, so you can fit the sofa into your house in pieces first, then assemble in the room.
There’s nothing worse than your new sofa turning up in a million pieces that’ll take you hours to assemble. You want something that puts together quickly, so you can get right on with enjoying the comfort your new sofa offers.
Cushioning is the most important factor to consider in comfortable sofas. The sofa can look great, be made of the perfect fabric and accommodate all your family members, but if it’s not comfortable, no one is going to sit in it.
