Finding your perfect sofa
Sofas are the most important feature of any living room. There’s nothing better than collapsing on the couch at the end of a long day, or cosying up and watching a box set at the weekend. When it comes to choosing a new settee, comfort is key – but don’t forget to consider style and size, too.
Think about proportions
It may be tempting to go for the biggest option, but remember that the sofa you choose should be in proportion to the rest of your room. If it's too large, then the space could feel cramped, and your other furniture will be lost.
Carefully measure the area you want your couch to take up to make sure there’s enough space to walk around it. There are plenty of sofas that are perfect for smaller spaces if you’re short on room. It’s also possible to create a sense of space simply by choosing a design with lower arms.
What’s your sofa style?
Perhaps you’re looking for a bigger sofa to accommodate your growing family – or maybe you’re in need of something that can double up as a bed for guests. Whatever’s fuelling your new purchase, having a clear idea of what you’d like from your settee will help to inform your choice.
The colour and fabric of your sofa should also be a consideration. If your style is minimalist, white or grey shades are best. (You can always use throws and cushions to add personality). And for those who prefer something bolder, there are plenty of quirky patterns to help make a statement.
See our sofas for yourself
You and your couch may be together for some years, so you want to be sure the one you choose is the right one. One of the best ways to find your ideal sofa is to go in-store and try a few out.
