Will it fit?
It’s important to measure your designated area accurately to ensure your sofa makes the most of your space. Look up the dimensions of your chosen sofa and compare them to the measurements of your space.
Be sure to take into account any side tables or floor lamps that will impact the space available. It's also important to make sure your sofa can get into its new home.
To be absolutely certain that it'll fit into the space, we recommend making a thorough access check. Find step-by-step instructions here.
Use masking tape or newspaper to lay out the size of your sofa. This will give you a good indication as to whether you are happy with how much space it takes up.
How durable does it need to be?
Sofas come in many different shapes and sizes and it’s important to choose the one that is right for your home. If you’re looking for a sofa that will see a lot of use from you and the children, explore family-friendly designs that are low maintenance.
By this we mean sofas upholstered in a dark, durable fabric that won’t easily stain and with foam-filled cushions that don’t need constant plumping. If you're looking for a sofa that will make a design statement whilst also remaining comfortable and inviting, the world is your oyster.
The legs of some of our sofas are able to removed, lowering the height by 15-20cm. Ask a member of our customer support team for more information.
What style should I choose?
Rather than limit yourself by trend, it’s best to discover your ‘design style’ instead. These are much broader and encompass more than just pattern, texture and material.
Mid-century style, for example, is characterised by tapered legs, fuss-free design and a simple aesthetic. While Scandi style also has an emphasis on clean lines, it places more of an emphasis on tactile, natural materials and organic shapes.
We suggest identifying a style that resonates with you and consider how it will fit in with the style of your home.
Trends may come and go but a sofa should last a lifetime. It’s important to choose furniture that's true to your own style rather than a trend that can disappear as quickly as it arrived.
