Check These 5 Common Mistakes to Avoid When Buying a Sofa

There are some mistakes that people often make when buying a sofa. These are small things in themselves, and so are easily overlooked. 

But all sofa-buying mistakes featured here do end up having a big impact on your satisfaction with your sofa purchase.

1. Buying a Sofa That Is Too Big or Too Small: This may be the most common mistake of them all. This happens when you don't measure your space or the sofa or sometimes neglect both. Don't go by how big the sofa looks in the store. A sofa might look deceptively small in a showroom but could end up being too big for your room, so not measuring your space or your sofa can create many problems.

Other than measuring the size of your space, pay attention to the scale. Your sofa should be the same scale as your other furniture so it doesn’t seem too big or too small placed alongside the rest of it.

2. Buying a Sofa Without Trying It Out: Just as your sofa shouldn’t be too big or too small for your space, it shouldn’t be too big or too small for you, either. If you are tall, make sure that the seat is deep enough to allow you to sit in comfort. If you are not very tall or have bad knees, look for a shallow seat that lets you rise out of it easily.

Never buy a sofa without first trying it out. Sit on it, lie on it, try it out the way you would use it at home. If you like napping on your sofa, make sure that the arms are the right height. Make sure the cushions and the back areas soft or firm as you want them to be.

3. Buying the Wrong Style Sofa: Your sofa should coordinate with the style of the rest of your furniture. It should be one that you are comfortable with, not just aesthetically, but also how that particular style functions for you. The way the sofa functions can be determined by trying it out but look carefully at the design to prevent buying something that is completely out of place in your home.

Each home has a predominant style, and if you buy a sofa that doesn’t go along with it, it could be a major eyesore unless you are especially skilled in merging different looks together. If you want to be safe, pay close attention to how your sofa would look lined up with the rest of your furnishings.

4. Selecting the Wrong Fabric or Color for Your Sofa: Selecting the wrong fabric for your sofa can be an expensive mistake. Make your fabric selection based on how the sofa will be used, and where you will be placing it. If you are buying your sofa for an area of your home that is heavily used, a delicate fabric or colour would be destroyed even before you’ve had a chance to enjoy it.

Selecting the wrong colour for your fabric can also be a serious mistake. It is always a good idea to bring a swatch home to look at it in relation to all your other furnishings, wall colour, and light.

Always choose a colour you like and can live with. Don't pick colours based on trends or just a whim. You will have to live with that colour choice for years.

5. Buying a Poor Quality Sofa: There are always budget considerations to be sure, but buying a good quality sofa ensures that you don’t have to replace it within a couple of years.

Buying a good quality sofa saves you money in the long run. Buy the best quality you can afford as buying a poor quality sofa means that it will lose its shape, looks and comfort factor pretty quickly, sometimes within a matter of months. A poor quality frame can also cause it to break, and you will have arms that jiggle and legs that aren't steady.
