Is my new sofa the right one?

Choosing a new sofa? 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.
