If you're investing in your space, Wayfair couches make an excellent long term investment, with an abundance of choice, from spacious ones for families, to sectional styles perfect for renters to reconfigure their scheme.

And with help from Wayfair's head of accent and entertainment Matthew Alleva, we've rounded up nine of the best Wayfair couches that range from budget-friendly and petite to splurge-worthy and movie-night-ready. You can save up to a whopping 65% off living room seating in the Wayfair sale with an extra 10% off if you sign up for Wayfair's email newsletters.

Alex Duncan, head of upholstery at Wayfair also recommends using the custom filters on the site to narrow down your search for small couches. Do you have dimension restraints in your living room? Frequent guests in need of a pull-out bed? Since there are seemingly endless size, fabric, and color options, filtering by your needs will seriously cut down the number of pages to scroll through.

The good news is that on selected items, you'll qualify for free white glove delivery which means that Wayfair will deliver the item, carry it item to a room of your choice, assemble it (if needed), and remove all packaging.

What to avoid when buying a sofa?

First things first, you'll want to ensure you're not purchasing a sofa that isn't the correct size for your space. Avoid a style that doesn't fit with the aesthetic you're trying to create, as it can create a disheveled look. 

Don't ignore how you feel when sitting on the couch. If it's uncomfortable when you first test it out, chances are you're not going to grow to like it, and it's a big purchase to not enjoy.

Pay attention to your needs: do you want something you can soak into, or are you in search of something a bit sturdier? Will there be a lot of guests using the couch? Are there fold-out bed options? Don't shop for a couch without noting all of the things you expect from it.  

What makes a sofa look expensive?

Taking proper care of the material is half the battle, but the way you style your sofa makes a difference, too. Play into a color scheme when choosing pillows and throws and try to select textures that complement one another. Above all else, if you notice wear and tear or stains on your couch, see what the retailer requires in terms of cleaning and maintenance to get it back in tip-top shape.

How do I know when to replace my couch?

Couches can last anywhere from seven to 15 years, but you should consider replacing yours if you notice that the material is disintegrating or that the foundation and structure feel wobbly and cannot be fixed. Other determining factors include stains, odors, and tears.

If you want to elevate your living room setup even further, these Wayfair rugs will provide extra coziness and visual appeal.
