When purchasing a sofa, it is easy to get confused or frustrated at the sheer range of colours, materials and styles, not to mention the various levels of quality and pricing. Be careful not to make a decision on impulse or out of frustration. Here are a few tips to make the process simple and ensure that you don't end up regretting your purchase.
It is crucial that you measure your space and work out the ideal size that your sofa needs to be. Think about how many people you need to seat regularly and where the best placement in the room would be (keeping in mind doorways and other furniture pieces). It's a great idea to measure your current sofa to get an idea or alternatively, measure out on the ground with masking tape or newspaper different sizes. This will help you visualise the item in the room and how you move around it. Secondly, even though it may fit within your required space the overall proportion will impact the look within the room. A sofa with chunkier or heavier overall proportions will appear larger in the room, whilst a sofa that is raised from the floor and has slim arms and seat proportions will appear lighter and visually consume less space. Use this to your advantage, look for heavier styles if you are looking to fill a large room and vice versa, and be aware of the impact the showroom has on the look of the sofa, in general showrooms will be very open and have high ceilings, making all sofas look smaller than they are.
Maybe a loveseat would be appropriate - if you are a single guy looking for something more intimate to offer than two single chairs. This is no more than a two-seater sofa (the smaller the better). There are other options that are covered by the term 'sofa', but you get the idea. In fact, you will likely already know what you are looking for once you have made the decision to buy a living room sofa.
