Few pieces of living room furniture are more impactful than a sofa. Not only can it be one of the largest pieces in the house, but it is also where your family will spend a lot of time watching movies, playing gaming, or cheering for their favorite sports team. It’s only natural that you’d want to do your research before buying a sofa. Here are some common questions that buyers consider.
Sofa Buying FAQ
What’s the difference between a love seat and a sectional?
Sectionals are large modular sofas, typically made of two or three pieces. These are arranged in a U- or L-shape and can hold six or more people. They are an ideal fit for large families and spacious living rooms.
Love seats are similar to a standard couch or sofa, but only range in width from 48 to 72 inches. They are best suited for a smaller apartment or living space.
How should I choose the materials and colors?
Material and color selection largely come down to personal preference and family makeup. If you have kids, you should pick a darker material, as this is easier to keep it looking clean. Leather can also be easier to clean than fabric. On the other hand, lighter colors and fabrics are better for homes without pets or children.
What are the benefits of a recliner?
Recliners are the perfect option for de-stressing at the end of the day. The back reclines, while foot supports allow you to kick up your feet. Nothing beats a recliner for comfort — just be sure you have an outlet nearby to power the reclining features, like USB ports for phones and other devices.
How can I identify a quality sofa?
Quality construction is essential for any sofa. Look for sofas built with hardwood or furniture-grade plywood, sinuous springs, and upholstery with a high rub-count rating.
