How to choose the right sofa

There are many sources that people go to for inspiration when wanting to choose the right sofa, from magazines and shops to online. Choosing the right style, shape and colour can be overwhelming and can actually take up a lot more time than you think.

Below are a few tips which can help you save time before deciding on the sofa you want to get.

Firstly, consider the size of your room. You will need to decide whether you want a big sofa or a small sofa depending on the size of the room. If you’re working with a small space consider the design of the sofa, it should compliment the rest of the room. Many people choose to have a focal point in their room and opt for a piece of art to achieve this. However, a sofa makes a fabulous focal point in a room and the beauty about this is that it can be styled to your personal taste. The colour, pattern, fabric and soft accessories can be personalised to suit you, your home and your character.

Sofas come in different shapes and sizes, the L-shape sofa proves to be a favourite for many. The Buzz sofa from Sofas & Stuff is a perfect example of a versatile design that stylishly fits a space that can be rearranged to suit each season. Buzz can be restyled into a sofa with an armchair, a snuggler or it can be extended.

Think about the colour and fabric of your sofa. If you have pets or young children, opting for a light coloured sofa may not be the best choice. Leather sofas, particularly darker coloured ones, are timeless and generally wear well. They are also easy to clean. Another great thing to think about is the style of your home, ideally there should be a flow of style between each room and they should compliment each other.

Your sofa should be a well thought of investment because it’s a piece of furniture that you will be making great use of both physically and visually.
