WHEN IS BLACK FRIDAY 2018?

This year's Black Friday takes over on Friday 23 November, with sales lasting for about a week or so. However, some retailers, such as Amazon, will be cutting prices well before. If you're serious about getting an amazing deal, it's definitely worth keeping your eyes peeled starting from the beginning of November.

Can you get great Black Friday sofa deals?

Definitely! Lots of deals will last from Black Friday through to Cyber Monday and beyond. Looking to replace a TV, sofa, mattress, smart home tech or kitchen appliances? Find out why you should wait to buy these products until Black Friday? 

Where should I shop for a sofa on Black Friday?

Don't miss your chance to subscribe to the best homes magazines in the world. Our titles include Real Homes magazine, Period Living and Homebuilding and Renovating.

With homeware brands jumping in on the Black Friday buzz, you can expect big savings from some of our favourite brands, big or small.

Check out our deals pages for Amazon, Made, Wayfair and John Lewis among others. And while we're still waiting for many deals to be confirmed, we can take you back in time to what happened during previous Black Fridays, just so you can get a good idea.

Last year saw Marks & Spencer knock a whopping 60 per cent off products across all its departments. Habitat treated customers to up to 50 per cent off, whilst Debenhams offered savings of 60 per cent off furniture. Very slashed their prices by 20 per cent on their furniture, and Black Friday 2016 saw them give customers a whopping 50 per cent off.

Are Black Friday sofa savings real?

Yes, but... since many products' prices change frequently, checking the price history of what you're planning to buy on CamelCamelCamel.com or PriceSpyis a smart idea. Not only will they tell you whether the savings are real or not, but they'll also show you whether a price is likely to re-occur.

Realistically, it's also likely that the sofa you're shopping for will be discounted again soon (think Boxing Day sales). So, rather than be distracted by the recommended retail price, always check, especially when it comes to big ticket home buys.

Is my new sofa the right one?

We know that when you find a good deal, it can be easy to quickly purchase without thinking. Before whipping your card out, be sure to check you've got the size right. Whether you want a corner, a recliner, a sofa bed or an armchair, check how different sofas will fit in your living room layout  by using masking tape or newspapers to create cutouts on the floor. 

Always allow for the footprint of the sofa and note the space needed from the slight lean of the back of the chair. If you're choosing a recliner or sofa bed, allow for extra room.

Looking for design ideas for small living rooms? Pushing furniture right back against the wall is only going to make a room feel smaller, even if it does mean you gain some floor space. It's best to go for a low, contemporary design with narrow arms. Sofas and chairs sat up on show-legs can also make a room feel bigger, as the floor can be seen beneath. 

Finally, always check that the sofa can fit through your front/back door. There's nothing worse than ordering the sofa of your dreams, to find that it won't fit into your house. 

For those with an open-plan modern living room, corner sofas are a good choice as they offer flexible seating for larger areas, and tend to seat more people on a smaller footprint. Mid-century style sofas with exposed legs also look great in modern homes, and they suit traditional living rooms, too. 

High-backed or low-backed, you ask? It all depends on how you like to lounge. We strongly suggest trying before buying – but on a looks-only judgement, high-backed sofas and armchairs tend to look more formal and traditional, while low-backed ones more contemporary and laid-back.

Is the sofa construction right for you?

There are a few different types of materials used in sofas fillings, so choose depending on your priorities. Foam is firm and will retain its shape, while fibre is softer, but still hardwearing. A more expensive filling is feather, which is softer still, but you'll need to keep plumping the cushions. Be aware that it can trigger allergies, so you might prefer a hypoallergenic synthetic fibre, such as a mono-polymer filling. 

If you choose a synthetic material, expect to pay more for a sofa that will last well without losing its shape. A combination of fillings are often used, such as seat cushions in a high-density foam with a fibre wrap, creating comfort and durability. Occasional turning is all the maintenance required.

If you're going to be using your sofa daily, be sure to find out what the frame is made from. Load-bearing parts should be made from a hardwood, such as oak, beech or ash. Softwoods like pine are more affordable, but do not have the longevity or resistance to warping of pricier hardwoods. Also, look for legs that are part of the frame, or screwed on/attached with dowels.
