Make sure to keep these pointers in mind while checking out a sofa set online or offline.
Size: Measure your space! Select the length, width and height of the sofa as per the size of your living room. Your sofa should not look too bulky or too small in the space, it needs to be proportionate. Ensure you have enough negative space so that it doesn’t look clustered.
Frame: Avoid materials like softwood or particleboard for the frame. The sofa is one of the most used pieces of furniture and you need a frame that's built with sturdy and durable materials for it to survive long.
Style: A standard sofa, sectional, recliner, English rolled arm, chaise lounge, tuxedo - there are many styles of sofa out there! But which one works best for your living room? Take into account the other furniture and the overall style of your living room before investing in one.
Upholstery: Make sure you pick the correct upholstery! The varieties of fabric upholstery available are several, and synthetic fabrics are resistant to stains too. Tightly woven fabrics also have a higher thread count and that's why they last longer. Leather upholstery, on the other hand, gives a modern era look and is easy to clean but expensive. However, if you have pets at home, it's ideal as it does not attract dust mites or pet dander.
