Have you been in a home where you were afraid to sit on the furniture? There could be two reasons for this: It’s too fancy or too ragged looking. In many homes a sofa in the living room becomes the most used piece of furniture next to the bed. That’s why it’s a very important purchase to make. In fact, it’s right up there with a new car or mattress. Before heading out to the showroom make sure you measure your space. You might think you know how big your sofa is but if you opt for something even a few inches larger you could find yourself in trouble especially when it means getting it through the front door. You might also rethink the space your current sofa resides in. Maybe a sectional will work in that space and give you even more room for people to get comfy.
You also need to consider that the frame of your new sofa will be made of. It should be a hardwood like oak or alder. Ask the salesperson but don’t take their word. Check the label. You also want to make sure that frame was kiln dried. This is a process the prevents the wood from warping or cracking when there is a change in the temperature. The idea thickness for a frame is 1-1/4″ think. Add all those factors up and you’ve got a high quality sofa frame.
In the showroom, you’ll want to check on the cushion springs as well. Don’t hesitate to take a cushion off and stand on it. After all, all your weight will eventually be going on that cushion so it should be able to withstand the pressure. It should also feel comfortable to the touch. That’s where the choice of cushion fabric is important. Embrace that you should pay a little extra for stain resistant fabric. You’ll be grateful for the first spill and it will happen!
