A sofa could be your best or worse furniture investment, so take your time and shop around and choose wisely - you should be as comfortable with your choice as your sofa is comfortable to its users.Certainly the largest piece of furniture in your home, and one that says the most about the overall design style of your home is your sofa. Some prefer the straight lines and minimal design of contemporary sofas. Others like sofas with lots of soft cushy pillows and floral patterns. Still others like sectional sofas.
Fitting into Your Home. The most important factor to take into consideration is the size of the sofa and the space you have available for it in your living room or the area where it would be standing, especially the width and the depth. Start by measuring the room and remember to also measure the doorframes and staircases your sofa should fit through when you bring your sofa home.
Loveseats And Divans: Loveseat is a two-seater sofa. This piece is particularly designed for couples. They can either be complimented with your living room furnishing or can be made a part of your bedroom furniture. They come in different designs like cabriole, camel back, etc. A Divan is a sofa without the back. It can be kept adjacent to the wall and then it can be accessorized with a set of pillows to provide you more comfort and make it look appealing.
Smaller living spaces and increased demand have caused sofa manufacturers to focus more attention on the styles and designs of sofa beds. The sofas being designed today are very different from the traditional design that many people were accustomed to seeing many years ago.
Sectional Sofas: These are the most demanded sofa sets these days. They are multi-piece sofa sets. They are divided from three to five pieces according to the size you require. Because of its high demand, they are crafted with n number of colors, prints, fabrics and materials. They are easy to shift and easy to organize. The two most common configurations of sectional sofas are L-shaped for the corners and U- shaped for a corner as well as center. Sectional sofas are not just for living rooms, but if you go for two to three seater sectional sofas, they can be placed in your bedroom as well.
Leather Sofas. Most people automatically gravitate towards a leather sofa when they are concerned about ease of cleaning. Leather sofas are usually easy to clean when it comes to wiping up spills and can be kept looking new by treating the leather with a leather conditioner on a regular basis. While a leather sofa is a good option for those who expect the occasional spill, those with small children or pets may be better off with a washable microfiber sofa fabric, since leather can be easily punctured by claws and playing children, and pets can leave odors on leather sofa fabric. However, if you order your leather sofa through a company that offers replacement leather sofa fabrics, this becomes a non-issue.
