Beatrice Genova October 10, 2019 Sofas & Couches
Buying a sofa can be a hard decision. There are so many to choose from. Whether you are looking to buy a discount living room furniture set or a one off piece for your living room we have got the top tips for buying the best sofa to suit your needs.
If you are lucky enough to be able to remove and launder your sofa cushion covers and back pillow covers, you have already extended the life of your couch by years! But, inevitably, the current cushion and pillow fabrics grow tired, faded, or show too many fabric pills (small ball of fibres that forms on a piece of cloth from wear), and it is time to invest some time and energy into getting new fabric or a whole new sofa.
If you are looking for a more formal feeling for your living room, the standard three person sofa is one way to go. These sofas typically have a more traditional look to them. However, you can still have the seating capacity of a sectional. Pair your sofa up with a loveseat or a second sofa. Depending on how formal you want your living room, you may not have a television. But if you have a fireplace, you want your main sofa facing it. Arrange your loveseat or second sofa off to its side moving towards the fireplace. If you do not have a fireplace, you have the opportunity to design the perfect area for friends and family to gather and catch up with each other. Placing your two sofas directly opposite each other crates a nice warm gathering spot. For some, however, this may seem a little stuffy and old fashioned. If so, you can place a second sofa running diagonally on one side and other chairs or loveseat on the other side running diagonally as well. Do this so you create a triangle instead of a square, with your sofa table in the middle. This way, you can get a formal look yet contemporary feel at the same time.
Probably more money is spent on this room than in any other place in the house since it tends to be larger, provide various spaces, can offer many uses and provides a place for entertaining. A coffee table, two end tables, a large couch, and love seat can make up a set for living room furniture. Some people wish to add a couple of matching chairs or recliners, a desk, and perhaps a couple of plant stands for decorative purposes.
One of the main considerations is whether to buy a suite, a unit system or sofas and armchairs separately. The advantage of buying a suite-consisting of a sofa and two matching armchairs -is that you can make considerable savings. Furniture retailers are usually able to offer suites at more competitive prices than buying the items individually. However, a suite may not offer the flexibility that you are looking for or suit the room, so it is worth taking the time to plan what arrangement and size of furniture best fits the space before making the final decision.
Buying a sofa, couch, or furniture suite is a major investment, so take more than just looks into account. Give size, comfort, construction, and the type of covering careful consideration, too.
