Your sofa is arguably the most important part of your living room. It is the piece of furniture around which your coffee table, entertainment center, and other seating is arranged. This is why it’s important to pick out a sofa that you’ll enjoy for years to come. Here are some things to consider when choosing your sofa that will help ensure you’re happy with your purchase for a long time to come.
- Choose a design that won’t go out of style
It’s easy to fall in love with some of the more bold colors or styles when shopping for a sofa, but try to imagine how it will look in your home rather than in the showroom. Will you get tired of such a bold color or pattern after a year or two? Often it’s a better idea to go with a more neutral color on your sofa, and it’s easy to add more color and change up the style of a neutral color sofa.
- Durable fabric is a must
As much as we would like to think that we’d never spill something on our beloved new sofa, things are going to happen. If you have pets, they will shed; if you have small children, they will spill drinks and get crumbs on the cushions, no matter how many times you told them not to. Choosing a durable fabric will help ensure your sofa stays looking great as long as possible.
- Make sure you can fall asleep on it
This may seem strange because why wouldn’t you just go sleep in your bed if you’re tired? Almost all of us have had nights where we fall asleep on the couch watching a movie or reading, so making sure your sofa is comfortable enough to sleep on is actually pretty important. When shopping around, sit on every sofa possible to get an idea of the most comfortable ones. Sit on them like you would at home to get the best idea.
