New Sofa Time! A Few Thoughts Before You Go Shopping!

Your sofa couch is one of the primary pieces of furniture in any home. It is where your family gathers, where you entertain guests, and where you curl up after the end of a long day on a smooth velvet cushion. You sofa is usually in the center of your home, where you see it at all times, and where anyone who walks into your home will see it. This is why it is so important to have a sofa couch that you love. There is a lot that goes into picking out the best sofa couch, and that is why we are here. If you are looking to get a new sofa, below are some things to think about before making your purchase.

First and foremost you should think about what size couch you can get. Do you only have room for a love-seat, or are you looking to fill up an entire room? You don’t want to end up buying a couch that will not fit your space, so be sure to do all of your measuring before you go. Take into account how long the couch is, along with its width (or depth) and its height. These are all important measurements that will help you decide what kind of couch you can fit. If you need space on either side of the couch (say, to get by or for an end table) be sure to include those in your measurements.

Once you know how big of a couch you can get, now you can start thinking about what style you want. There are a lot of different options here, and the best way to know what you want is to explore them all. Do you want something colorful? Or something more classic?


Many people feel that retro sofa’s are the new modern, so maybe you want something with an older look to it. Remember to match your sofa up with the decorations you already have in that room. You don’t want your sofa to look out of place by not having it match the surrounding room. Also think about what kind of material you want the couch to be. Many people enjoy leather couches, while some would rather go with fabric. Think about what will be most comfortable for you, while also remembering that you are going to have to find a way to keep them clean. Fabric couches are a little easier to clean than leather ones, so that is something to think about.

Lastly, you want a sofa that is comfortable. This piece of furniture is not just for show, you are going to be sitting on it quite a bit. Make sure the cushions are comfortable to sit on, along with the material along the back of the couch. We recommend testing any couch out before making the purchase. Go to the furniture store and take a seat on it. See if you can imagine yourself sitting on this couch for more than a few minutes at a time. See what it feels like to sit and lay on it in different positions. Don’t worry about looking odd while you’re in the store, everyone else will be doing the same thing. You want to make sure that you are going to be happy with your purchase, and the only way to do that is to test the sofa out before you get it.

    I’ve always loved the look of leather sofas, but they are not the most comfortable, lol. You tend to stick to them, I guess. Still, I’d love to have one. I’d just need a fabric one to sit on & admire my leather sofa, lol!
