Do you sometimes feel like your Sofa is making your room look boring and ugly? Does it often “squeak” when you set on it requesting new springs? If it does all that and more, than maybe it is time to get a new sofa set. We will tell you here 4 things that you should keep in mind when buying a new sofa set.
1- Avoid white or light colored Sofa sets. They might look beautiful in a magazine, but they get dirty easily, especially if you have small children who make a habit of playing with their food on the sofa. The stains will be enhanced with the light color. You might want to choose dark (brown, black,) Or plaid (checkered, tartan) Fabrics. Do not use velvet as they tend to lose their glaze quickly. Also leather is a good choice since leather sofas are stylish and durable but they are also expensive. So choose wisely.
2- When you buy a sofa look for one that is comfortable and easy on the eye. Weirdly shaped sofas might ruin the design of the room and look out of place. Try the sofa set to see if it is suitable for your height and weight, and also to make sure that they are well made. Poorly made sofas lose their springs in less than a year. Make sure they have unattached cushions, because you will need to rearrange these cushions or clean them afterwards.
3- Match the sofa set to the style of the room and house design. For example, you can get an antique French sofa for your Victorian style house. Check the arms and legs of the sofa to get a hint about the style it represents. Rolled armed sofas are traditional, thus they would fit a traditional style decor.
4- Do a little research about the sofa set you are buying. Make sure there are a lot of positive reviews about the store. Ask about the type of fabrics and springs used. Also, you need to check the return policy. See if there is a free shipping deal, it will save a lot of money.
