A sofa is probably the single most important and long term home purchase you can make. It will generally move from the living room to the basement as it ages. It is a definite investment, one that should be made wisely and with the understanding that you get what you pay for. Here are some tips to help you make a better purchase decision.
Things To Consider
A contemporary sofa will offer cleaner lines, less flourishes and have upholstery that is going to be more understated. If you want to stick with a more traditional feeling, then go with a sofa with arms that are rolled with a contoured back along with skirting.
Take into consideration the proportion of the room where it will go and decide precisely which sofa would be better as far as the length, height, and depth. It’s always good to do a type of blueprint in the room using masking or painter’s tape.
Pay special attention to the arms. Most people rest their head on the arms when they read or watch TV. You don’t want to be crouched up when you’re trying to take a nap. There should be plenty of space for you to stretch out comfortably.
