Dinettes and Stools: Choosing the Perfect Sofa for You

One thing that is always present in homes is a sofa. It has multiple purposes such as the homeowner’s relaxation and a guest’s repose.
Sept. 12, 2010 - PRLog -- The sofa seen in our living room reflects so much about our personalities. We can say that there are about millions of different sofas on the market. Also, there are many things to consider when choosing a sofa. This makes selecting yours a big, difficult task. But worry no more because http://www.dinettesandstools.info, the excellent online store for quality furniture, presents us with the things you need to keep in mind in choosing your perfect sofa.

When you are purchasing a sofa, you are definitely making quite a big investment not only on money but also on time and effort. Most of the time, consumers decide on a sofa based on style alone or maybe on price alone. These consumers are most likely to regret after a few months. When choosing a sofa, you need to have criteria. Here are the things you have to consider:

Your space – Before going out to shop for a sofa, make sure you measure the space you plan to place it on. Will it look too huge in the room or will it look too small? Next you have to measure the spaces where it will pass through. From your front door to all the doorways. You may have chosen the right sofa but every effort would be futile if you can’t get it through the doorways or stairs even.

The style – Observe the room where you plan to place the sofa. Is it modern or traditional? Are your other furniture made of wood or metal? Is the room’s theme color dark, neutral, or anything goes? You have to make sure that the sofa you choose harmonizes with the rest of the room. It should not look as if it just popped there like a mushroom. Also, determine how and who would be using it. You can choose a sectional sofa if you have a big family. You can choose a loveseat to save more space. You can also choose a convertible to use as a bed at night.    

The back of the sofa – Comfort does not only rely on the softness of the material used on a sofa. You may have chosen an extremely soft one but still spend too much time adjusting your position to get comfy. Every sofa’s back has different shapes and contour. Make sure your back perfectly fits the back part. Test your choices by sitting on sofas and leaning on their backs.

The fabric used – The upholstery is a very important factor of a sofa. Choose one which suits your family best. Tight weaved fabrics can last much longer than others. The most preferred are microfiber and cotton blends. But if you have kids or clumsy adults at home who are prone to spilling stuff, you might want to think again. Microfiber fabrics are difficult to maintain. Check the sofa tags to know the maintenance process. S indicates solvent cleaning. W indicates water-based cleaning. S-W if you can use both methods.

These are the most important factors to consider when choosing the perfect sofa. Be sure to purchase only from trusted furniture dealers. Check out http://www.dinettesandstools.org for a wide selection of quality sofas and other furniture.
