When are the best sofa deals?

The best sofa deals are generally found at a few key times of year; Black Friday and Boxing Day or January sales.

Often hailed as the biggest shopping day of the year, Black Friday falls on the last Friday of November, so the next time it will roll around is Friday 25th November 2022.

The term Black Friday originated in the US to denote the first day following Thanksgiving, when retailers would cut prices to draw holidaymakers to shop their store's sales. Driven by global brands, the price-slashing event soon crossed the pond, and now Black Friday - closely followed by Cyber Monday - has become one of the UK's biggest consumer extravaganzas, rivaling the more traditional Boxing Day sales. 

The event has also spread to encompass more than one day, with many retailers starting their 'Black Friday' events earlier and earlier to try to get ahead of the competition.

Next up are the Boxing Day or New Year's Day sales. This is often an opportunity for retailers to clear any remaining stock of last year's lines, which can make it a great time to score some sofa sale bargains.

However, these dates aren't the only times to find some great sofa deals - as long as you know where to look - and on this page, we'll keep you informed of all the best prices to be found each month, so whatever time of year you want to shop, you can be sure of finding the best prices.

How to choose a new sofa

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 small living room ideas? 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 raised up on high legs will 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.
